The Pacific Northwest Experience

Northwest Excursions has one goal in mind - to provide premium, well rounded cycling-centric experiences in the great Pacific Northwest. Located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, Hood River Oregon is often regarded as one of the most idyllic spots in the world. With rolling hills of vineyards, fruit farms, and epic mountain views, the Columbia Gorge is also a mecca for outdoor activities. Top notch mountain and road biking opportunities exist all around, but Hood River is also known for other activities that take advantage of the wind, water and mountainous terrain that surrounds you. In just a short radius of this central location, you can find yourself in entirely different climates, from dry desert to lush rainforest, and high alpine.

Quite simply, we want to share this experience with likeminded, outdoor enthusiasts from other places. Northwest Excursions is based around cycling, but offers a well rounded, Hood River experience. Get ready for amazing outdoor adventures of all kinds in this uniquely beautiful place.

Hood River, Oregon

Hood River is located in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge, just an hour east of Portland. One of the most unique things about Hood River is it’s vastly different climates within a short radius in any direction. 30 miles to the south is Mt. Hood, with the access to high alpine. A short trip west and you’ll find deep rainforests that are classic to the northwest, and to the east is rocky and dry. This location offers a wide variety of recreation opportunities during all four seasons, and is the perfect spot for your next trip!
