Washington Whimsy

Seattle’s skyline, the peaceful San Juan Islands and a cheeky Bavarian burg.

Island Cycling

Pedal through bobbing tulips with Mount Baker in the background before boarding a ferry for five days of biking the San Juan Islands. Ride through cedar and fir forests with the Pacific peeping through at every turn, and make your way to the top of Mount Constitution, the highest point in the islands. Days of hard work are rewarded with innovative Northwest cuisine and punctuated with quaint galleries and boutiques in San Juan Island’s Friday Harbor and on Orcas Island.

Pacific Cities

Take in views of the Seattle skyline, backed by snowy peaks and blue waterways, as you dine on fresh Dungeness crab and gleaming oysters at Salty’s on Alki Beach. Over two days in the city, you’ll explore personable neighborhoods and worldrenowned museums — and taste your way through Pike Place Market — before traveling north to Victoria, British Columbia. Stretching from Portland, Oregon, to Vancouver, British Columbia, this eight-day tour is the best of Washington and its neighbors.

Central Attractions

Munch apple strudel and handmade chocolates, perhaps to the sounds of a nearby oompah band, as you stroll the Bavarian outpost of Leavenworth. You’ll spend one night in this Cascade Range town before heading to Spokane and onward into Idaho and Montana to visit Glacier National Park and Hells Canyon.
