Today embark on an epic adventure to the San Juan Island. The spectacular natural beauty and relaxed rural lifestyle of the San Juan Islands feels like a world away… yet this unique Whale Watching seaplane flight and cruise is just a day-trip away from Seattle. Flights leave Seattle in the morning and return in the early evening. Board a modern 55-foot MV Sea Lion whale watching boat for an amazing naturalist-led cruise adventure around the beautiful San Juan Islands. Sea lions, seals and bald eagles are regularly seen on this guided tour. Before or after your boat ride, you’ll have time to explore the charming village of Friday Harbor on your own.

Today, drive to one of the most beautiful and diverse national park in the USA. 

Olympic National Park, where glacier-tipped mountains rub elbows with rocky coastline

Since 1938, visitors have been enjoying Olympic National Park, one of the West’s great wilderness areas. Ninety-five percent of this largely roadless marvel is untouched and undeveloped, making it the perfect place for camping and backcountry exploration. In winter, snow-based activities are popular, and during the other three seasons, visitors love to discover its wooded expanses and extensive shoreline. Home to dozens of species of mammals and aquatic life, it’s not uncommon to see elk locking antlers, whales breaching the surface of the sea and salmon surging upstream.

Night at: Olympic Lodge - 2 Queen



This morning, meet your guide and enjoy a customizable adventure in the park. This private guided tour is one of our most rewarding experiences to facilitate. Create an itinerary specific to your hiking and sightseeing goals, which allows you to hike further or see more unique elements of Olympic National Park. Do you want to see more or do you want to do more? If seeing the most destinations is your goal, assemble itineraries that combine two of the top regions to experience Olympic’s incredible eco-diversity within a single day tour. If more hiking and less driving is your goal, select a specific hiking trail to fully immerse yourselves into an ecosystem during a single moderate day hike.

Continue your path around the Olympic National Park until reaching your next destination; the Lake Quinault. Covering more than 4,000 square kilometers of the Olympic Peninsula in the northeast corner of Washington state, Olympic National Park encompasses several distinctly different ecosystems and protects a rich mosaic of natural and cultural history. Untamed rivers flow from glacier-capped peaks through valleys of old-growth forests, waves crash against a shoreline rich with life and hiking trails traverse the vast interior of this stunning wilderness.

Drive to your next destination; Cannon Beach without missing a detour via the beautiful Ecola State Park. 

Haystack Rock towers on the shoreline. Waterfalls cascade onto the sand at Hug Point. Marine life peeks out at low tide. It’s no wonder National Geographic listed Cannon Beach as one of the 100 most beautiful places in the world in 2013. Plus the city’s many art galleries, restaurants, boutiques and oceanfront lodging can easily spark your imagination.

Night at: Inn at Cannon Beach - 2 queen 



Today, the the road to the region of Bend. On your way don't miss the vineyards of Willamette.

Arrive at Brasada Ranch and discover a sanctuary where you can press pause and pursue adventure surrounded by the Cascade mountains and rugged high-desert landscape. Share in the unbridled spirit of Central Oregon with an inspired experience that celebrates the beauty and bounty of the season. 

Night at: Brasada Ranch - 2 Bedroom Cabin 



Today, take the time to appreciate your surroundings on a horseback. 

The best way to take in the landscape’s natural beauty is from the saddle of a mustang, draft-cross, and western pleasure horses. Explore 1,800 acres of rugged high desert with your experienced adventure guides.

Night at: Brasada Ranch - 2 Bedroom Cabin 



Take the road again toward an other natural wonder; Crater Lake National Park. One of the most beautiful lakes you'll ever see. Crater Lake National Park features one of the most stunning scenes on Earth: a deep, pure lake, sheer cliffs over 600 meters high and two picturesque islands. Reaching a depth of 592 meters, Crater Lake is the ninth deepest lake in the world and the deepest in the USA. Located in the southwestern portion of Oregon, the lake actually occupies a hole created by a collapsed volcano that erupted more than 7,500 years ago.

DAY 10

Continue your discoveries on your way to your next stop. Meet the worlds' tallest trees at redwood national park. Visitors are literally dwarfed by nature at Redwood National and State Parks, where ancient redwoods seem to touch the sky and 3-meter high ferns emerge from primeval, mist-shrouded groves. Spread over 53,000 hectares, the park was founded in 1968 to protect the majestic trees from the ravages of the logging industry and now serves to inspire amazement in the backpackers, hikers and dreamers who flock to its trails. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1980, RNSP is a place to be humbled by nature.

Night at: Best Western Humbolt Bay - 2 Queen


DAY 11

Today, take the road along the Pacific ocean to your next destination where more discoveries are waiting or you. Point Reyes, the West Coast’s only national seashore extends across 70,000 acres of a large triangular peninsula that appears to have broken away from the Northern California coast. The coastal preserve of Point Reyes National Seashore, located one hour north of San Francisco, protects more than 1,500 animal and plant species in its watery utopia of beaches, lagoons, estuaries, and ponds that surround a densely wooded interior. Here, breakers pound remote beaches, wisps of fog wash over coastal hills, elephant seals brawl on the sand, and tule elk roam in wild meadows.

DAY 12

Enjoy a day at leisure exploring the area. 

In this lush green-and-blue wonderland, binoculars and hiking boots are necessary equipment; kayaks are optional but useful. The park’s main visitor center at Bear Valley is a great place to start exploring, and kids love its interactive displays. Get updates on whale watching (typically January to mid-April), wildflower displays (best in early-to-late spring) and hiking trail conditions. Smaller visitor centers are located at Drakes Beach and the Point Reyes Lighthouse.

For wildlife watching, head to Tomales Point to see the tule elk, especially during the fall rutting season. Then move on to 200-acre Abbotts Lagoon to witness rich bird life (more than 45 percent of North America’s bird species have been spotted at Point Reyes). For beach walks, try dog-friendly Kehoe Beach or kid-friendly Drakes Beach. When the tide rolls out, explore the tidepools at McClures Beach. When the fog rolls in, head to Bear Valley and hike trails through dense forests of Douglas fir and Bishop pine.

Night at: Olema House - Family Suite  


DAY 13

Drive to you final destination; San Francisco. Upon Arrival, drop-off your car rental and enjoy some free time in the city. San Francisco is the kind of quirky place where a fog-calling contest might compete for attention with gala balls marking the opening of the symphony, opera and ballet seasons. From Union Square to North Beach to Japantown, you’ll find intriguing neighborhoods at every turn. The writers of the Beat Generation, the hippies of the Summer of Love in the late 1960s and the gay and lesbian population contributed in making the city what it is today. San Francisco is also one of the world’s great dining destinations, thanks in part to the diverse cultural influences and proximity of fresh ingredients.

Night at: Proper Hotel - Premier 2 double 


DAY 14

Enjoy a day at leisure in San Francisco. 

San Francisco is a place of landmarks and photo opportunities, not the least of which is the Golden Gate Bridge. Crossing the famous suspension bridge that spans San Francisco Bay via bicycle, by car or on foot is a must.

There are countless sights that add to San Francisco’s allure, especially for first-time visitors: Take a ferry to Alcatraz Island, the site of a former federal penitentiary in the middle of the bay. Marvel at the winding, hillside Lombard Street lined with flower gardens. Stroll Fisherman's Wharf, with its restaurants and attractions. Have a picnic in Alma Square facing the colorful Victorian houses known as the “Painted Ladies.”

The best way to see it all is by climbing aboard one of the cable cars serving California Street, Chinatown, Nob and Russian hills, and Ghirardelli Square near Fisherman’s Wharf.

Night at: Proper Hotel - Premier 2 double 


DAY 15

After a morning at leisure, enjoy a private ride to airport before flying to your next destination.
