A week on the Columbia & Snake Rivers with UnCruise Adventures for 1859 Magazine

August 24, 2016

Growing up in Oregon with travel-happy parents meant I spent a lot of time exploring all of the state’s interesting places. It’s not often that I find an Oregon adventure that I haven’t done (thanks mom and dad!), but this trip was an exception! And what an amazingly unique adventure it was! 1859 Magazine asked me to document the week-long river journey aboard the S.S. Legacy, a replica coastal steamer operated by the incredible UnCruise Adventures. My mom came along, and we spent the week hot tubbing on the top deck, drinking local wines in the saloon, eating Ah-mazing food, touring museums, and watching the landscape change as we sailed by (I took some pictures, too). Not too shabby!

Our journey starts and ends in Portland, covers 3 states and nearly 1,000 miles of river, and takes us through eight locks between Astoria, Oregon and Hells Canyon. Enjoy!

    Really a good job of catching the feeling of the cruise. It was fun 24/7 and lots of beautiful scenery.

    Wonderful trip. We met so many great people. I think the intimacy of this ship really helped make this a memorable vacation.
