Trip Details

Surround yourself with stunning mountains, ancient forests, rugged beaches, dense rain forests and resident wildlife on our Pacific Northwest adventure. In Seattle we’ll take in the panoramic vistas from the Space Needle, enjoy colorful Pike Place Market and ride the gondola to the top of Crystal Mountain. The Victoria Clipper ferry will take us through Puget Sound to Victoria, where an old-fashioned seaside town atmosphere and The Butchart Gardens await.

Along the Oregon coast we’ll visit Fort Clatsop, Lewis and Clark’s winter encampment of 1805, and cruise along the Columbia River. We’ll also travel to Johnson Ridge Observatory and Mount St. Helens for amazing views and extraordinary exhibits. From vibrant cities and small coastal communities to serene scenic wonders, this vacation has it all!
