6:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. departures, 1.5 hours, $49
Wake up early and get the beautiful sunrise colors! It’s a view-filled start to your day with a ride on the Portland Aerial Tram. (We’re now offering 9 a.m. departures as well!)
We’ll pick you up in central downtown Portland at Director Park, and head out to coffee before we go along the city’s western ridgeline, though pocket neighborhoods that feel like secrets. At OHSU, we’ll walk with you to the Aerial Tram.
We’ll serve you some of Portland’s best doughnuts with a view of the first morning light, then we’ll ride this feat of Italian engineering as the early sun reveals the city’s glowing colors. We’ll tell you the story of the city’s only transit-, bike- and pedestrian-only bridge and its quixotic lights, and orient you to the city whose east-west divider lies before us.
Once we’re done, we’ll drop you off back in the city center, or if you like, bring you with us back to our shop for another morning tour.
Note that, while the sun comes up every morning, the weather doesn’t always accommodate the most colorful views. Whatever we can see on the horizon, we’ll have delicious coffee, great doughnuts, great stories, and a sweet ride on an unusual conveyance!
