Tenasillahe Island tour

$115, full day
approximately 12 miles

A twelve mile loop circumnavigates this Oregon island through the Lewis & Clark and Julia Butler Hansen National Wildlife Refuges. "Tenas" is Chinook Jargon for "little", and "illahe" is also Jargon for "land". Combining the two creates the concept of an island. Chinook Jargon was a trade language spoken on the Lower Columbia, as well as along the coast up into Canada. This tour reflects native American history, and the stories of explorers and settlers. Cross the shipping channel, then hide away in the islands of the Wildlife Refuges, and tales of history.
