Hood River is the gem of Oregon, often referred to as the windsurfing capital of the world and known for being a shining light the whole year round. Find us right smack in the middle of two of the most beautiful natural features in the northwest: the Columbia River Gorge and the Cascade Mountain Range. A Hood River vacation is for anyone who likes beauty and adventure.
The Gorgeous Landscape
Here in Hood River you’ll find the most unique intersection of mountain and river in the Pacific Northwest. Whether you’re coming in the warm summertime or you’re venturing here to enjoy the winter season, you’ll find yourself in awe of the natural sights here, from summer swimming in the Columbia River, to the fall flavors of our wineries along the famous Fruit Loop, to the snow-capped beauty that Mt. Hood becomes in the winter season. If you’re coming for the holidays, you’ll find that Hood River is nothing short of a winter wonderland.
An Adventure for Everyone
You’ll also find that in Hood River, we have adventures in store for people of all ages, shapes, and sizes! Explore the cider and wine scenes that make our city truly unique, which we’re known for far and wide. Taste gourmet pizza and drink beer along the riverside. Board a train and spend the afternoon watching the vibrant world float by. Go snowboarding, skiing, and even try something new and wild, like snowkiting! Hood River’s biggest draw by far is our love for outdoor recreation, and the prime natural landscape to support this love. You don’t have to have extensive outdoor experience to go hiking in the Cascades, or see the National Scenic Area, or venture out to a secluded waterfall with your family, like Punchbowl Falls, or the Tamawanas Falls Trail. Spend your holiday bundled up and exploring the mountainside, the different districts of the city, and then returning to your cozy rental home in the evening to gather by the fireside with the ones you love and watch the weather outside from the most comfortable spot in Hood River.
