Home Sweet Home

Why endure long, cramped flights to foreign lands when you can explore a wonderland of waterfalls on trails winding through lush forests here in the USA? Among other adventures, New England Hiking Holidays offers a six-day trip through the Pacific Northwest’s most scenic areas with stays at bucolic inns tucked in the woods.

The trip begins in Portland, a fun stop in itself. A spectacular drive along the Historic Columbia River Highway takes you across the Bridge of the Gods to rustic Skamania Lodge, home base for three nights. Within Columbia Gorge, first explored by Lewis and Clark, are more than 30 accessible waterfalls. A hike into Eagle Creek highlights everything that the Gorge has to offer; deeply cut gorge walls, rushing, water, crystalline air and towering trees.

Next a scenic drive to Mt. Hood with a stop to sample the famous cherries in the Hood River Valley. Two days are spent at the foot of Mt. Hood hiking into the heart of the forest to alpine lakes reflecting the snow-capped monarch. The last morning takes you to the Salmon River Trail though magnificent stands of old growth timber. NEHH always offers an easier and more challenging option on any given day. You are not compelled to stay with the group, but why not have the benefit of knowledgeable guides who spare you from making a wrong turn.

A blissful, carefree holiday is waiting for you right here at home.
