Great Pacific Northwest

September 17 - September 25, 20179 days

Incredibly beautiful and wildly bountiful, the Pacific Northwest presents a miraculous geological masterpiece where lush, unspoiled forests blanket dramatic slopes, imposing mountains cradle mighty rivers, and sparkling waterfalls cascade into breathtaking gorges. Experience this spectacular region that captivated intrepid explorers as you cruise the Columbia and Snake Rivers aboard the American Empress, the largest and most elegant riverboat west of the Mississippi.

Begin with a stay in lovely Vancouver, Washington, before embarking on your voyage in Portland, the “City of Roses.” Discover the small-town charms of Astoria, delve into the unique pioneer history of The Dalles, and take in magnificent scenery in Stevenson, home to the renowned Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum. Follow the footsteps of Lewis and Clark and their legendary Shoshone guide to Sacajawea State Park, the site of the famed explorers’ 1805 campsite. Conclude your journey in Clarkston, Washington, a gateway to North America's deepest river gorge.
