Whitewater Kayaking

Located in the famous Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Hood River is home to lush forests and crystal clear rivers that make it the perfect place to learn how to kayak.  Your home base at Panorama Lodge is a heavenly spot to relax by the fire and soak in stunning views of Mt. Hood.
