Pacific Northwest Tour – Sample Itinerary – Day 1

Seattle to Forks, WA (via Olympic National Park)

7:30am: You will meet your guide in front of Seattle’s world famous Ye Olde Curiosity Shop located in the heart of the Seattle waterfront. After introductions, your adventure begins with a ferry ride across Elliott Bay (included). Take in the beauty of Seattle as you arrive on Bainbridge Island and hop into your minicoach for the trip. From here you’ll journey north to the balmy town of Port Angeles. After lunch along the waterfront, head to breathtaking Olympic National Park and hit the trail for a mid-afternoon hike along the brilliant blue waters of Lake Crescent. Olympic National Park is one of the most-visited parks in the USA, but with more than 600 miles of trails, you’ll still find that exhilarating feeling of isolation that makes places like Olympic so special. Next up, we’ll get back on the road and head toward the rustic logging town of Forks where you’ll stay for the night.


Sample Itinerary – Day 2

Forks, WA to Astoria, OR (via Olympic National Park)

All Day: On day two of your adventure, head back to Olympic National Park, this time visiting the moss-draped Hoh Rain Forest on the western side of the park. Hike among the towering lush green trees – you’ll likely find yourself dodging rain drops as this park receives an astonishing 12 feet of rainfall per year! The rugged shores of Washington’s coast provide the backdrop for your lunch today along the sandy coast of Ocean Shores. After an afternoon at the beach, continue on towards the Beaver State of Oregon! We’ll stop for the night in the charming town of Astoria. Sit back and relax with a cold beer (or hot tea), and then enjoy dinner at one of Astoria’s many breweries!


Sample Itinerary – Day 3

Astoria, OR to Portland, OR

All Day: Your third day begins early as the group visits Coxcomb Hill, the highest point in Astoria and home to the world-famous Astoria Column. Built in 1926, the column features murals celebrating the history of Oregon. You might catch a glimpse of the mouth of the mighty Columbia River when you climb to the top of the column! Next, you’ll drive along the Columbia and roll into The City of Roses (and hipsters!), Portland. First, you’ll head downtown, where you can visit Powell’s City of Books, stand in line for mouth watering Voodoo Doughnuts, or stroll along the river and visit the world’s smallest park. Later that night, you’ll explore the funky and quirky parts of the city.


Sample Itinerary – Day 4

Portland, OR to Seattle, WA (via Mount Rainier National Park)

All Day: After a bit more free time to explore Portland (maybe another round of Voodoo Doughnuts?), the last day of your tour will be spent crossing back into Washington and visiting the beautiful Mount Rainier National Park. This stratovolcano reaches more than 14,000 feet and has more glaciers than any other mountain in the continental United States! You won’t have time to climb the mountain, but you’ll spend plenty of time on some of the trails surrounding the Paradise area of the park. Then, after a few hours of amazing views of the mountain and wildflowers, you’ll head back toward where your adventure began: the Emerald City, Seattle.

**Sample Itineraries: Please note that due to rapidly-changing conditions beyond our control (weather, crowds, traffic) and the small size of our vehicles/groups, we allow our guides the flexibility to tailor your itinerary to best suit the needs of the group. While we guarantee that we’ll do our best to provide you with all of the highlights within this Yosemite and Tahoe Sierras Tour itinerary (conditions permitting), we do not guarantee them in this specific order. **
