Duration: 9 Days
Set your sights higher than the Space Needle and the redwoods for lush green forests, cascading waterfalls, and ice-smothered volcanoes are just the opening scenes of this west side story. From Seattle to Portland and all the way to the Golden Gate of San Francisco, the dramatic views of both city and seaside astound on this nine-day Pacific Coast holiday. While Oregon’s fabled lighthouses cast their beams to reveal the wonder of the West, your native Tour Director will shed light on what makes this corner of the country so uniquely spectacular – from its perfect pinot noirs to its fresh catches of the day. If the Seattle coffee scene doesn’t wake you up, a dune buggy ride along the Oregon coast, a jet boat ride across the wild Rogue River, and a journey down Redwood National Park’s Avenue of Giants certainly will.
