Lewis & Clark


Travel the actual route Lewis and Clark explored to find their 1805-6 winter camp. Your perspective of their adventure will come alive as you help paddle a 50-foot replica of a Native American dugout canoe. Listen to accounts of their exploits as you pass islands and land formations like Pillar Rock where the party first felt they had seen the Pacific Ocean.

Boat options: Talapas

The Trip may include a variety of options that you can choose from. We have activities that give you a feel for what it was like to be on the expedition. Fire building with flint and steel, tastes of types of food used on the original expedition, construct your own leather-bound journal like the one Clark carried, explore road-less islands just to find out what is there, learn native American crafts and games are but a few of the choices.

Our trip may vary in length from a half-day trip to a 6-day, 5-night journey that follows the last 18 days of Lewis and Clark’s exploration. It can include an overnight camp-out or a comfortable stay at a local bed & breakfast or motel. Let us design a custom trip to fit your needs and interests.

Trips begin and end in the Lower Columbia river region. We can have start points and destinations that include tours of Fort Clatsop, Cape Disappointment Lewis and Clark interpretive center, and ancient native American village sites close to Astoria, Oregon or Illwaco, Washington.

If you would like to design a trip to fit your own needs such as a family reunion, church group or other group trip, contact us by email or phone and we’ll set up an opportunity to plan what you’d like from our many offerings.
