Active travel with Cordilleran Tours

Core-duh-LAIR-uhn. That’s how you say it. And this is why we use the name.

We are about active travel in and through our region: Portland Oregon, the Columbia Gorge, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, the Willamette Valley, the Oregon Coast, and farther afield too. “Active” can mean on bikes or hiking up steep trails; or it can mean simply engaging more deeply in the gardens, parks, pathways, coffee shops, restaurants, breweries, wineries, and all the other good things our region has to offer.

“Active” also means that we strive to provide the best options for individual car-free travel for visitors to our region; you shouldn’t have to rent a car to see almost anything here. With tours, hiking shuttles and our first-of-its-kind Bicycle Airport Express, we’re all about getting you from your arrival point in the city to all of the beautiful things this area has to offer without ever getting behind the wheel of a car.

Tours are designed to act like story plot, TED talk, and spiritual quest, connecting guests more deeply to the subject matter and the stories behind the usual stories of a place.

Cordilleran Tours delves more deeply — beyond the stories of the victors and despoilers — to find all the stories that make up a city, region, natural wonder or cultural feature, highlighting stories of the indigenous people and species, immigrants, laborers, makers, artists, dreamers and the land itself.
