Join a Volcano Lands tour and let us be your guides to the natural wonders that surround Portland, Oregon.

We’ll do the driving

We’ll pick you up in Portland and provide safe, comfortable transportation in our 12-passenger van.

Expert Naturalist Guide

Your guide has a PhD in Zoology. That means you’ll have a nerdy scientist to explain all of the cool things you’ll see on your tour.

Focus on Natural History

We are deeply passionate about nature and science– and it shows. On your tour, you’ll learn about the wildlife, plants, and ecosystems of the spectacular Pacific Northwest.

Let’s go for a hike

Hiking into wild places is a great way to experience nature. All of our tours feature hiking, with distances from 2 to 7 miles, depending on the tour. Activity levels range from easy to moderate.

Lunch Included

We’ll provide a vegetarian, locally-catered boxed lunch as well as a mid-morning snack, coffee, and water.
