San Francisco to Seattle
- 2013-01-01 - 2013-12-31
Discover city delights and scenic wonders on America's West Coast
From rugged-cliff faces and towering sand dunes, to lush green forests and active volcanoes, it's no doubt that Mother Nature blessed the West Coast of the United States with some truly magnificent terrain. Behold giant redwood trees in the Redwood National Park, be awestruck by the seemingly bottomless Crater Lake, go hiking in Silver Falls State Park and examine the bizarre lava-landscapes surrounding Mt St Helens. Admire the views from the dazzling heights of Mt Rainier, then return to ground level and soak up the cool, grungy vibe of Seattle city. This short-but-sweet tour has something for everyone.
San Francisco to Seattle SummaryAdd to Shortlist
As a truly multicultural city, San Francisco has a wealth of cuisines, cultures, artistic events and eclectic scenes over every hill and around every corner.
With its lovely ocean views and an eclectic mix of galleries, shops and restaurants, the historic seaside town of Mendocino has long been popular as an artists' haven.
Redwood National Park is home to the world's tallest trees. California's magnificent coastal redwoods can live for 2000 years and grow to a height of more than 100 m.
Framed by towering volcanic cliffs, Crater Lake's clear blue water is nearly 600 m deep - making it the second deepest lake in North America.
Amazing sand dunes - some towering up to 150 m high - rise from the shores of the Pacific Ocean at the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
Nestled in the foothills of the Oregon Cascades, Silver Falls State Park's walking trails take hikers through forested canyons to some of the park's 10 beautiful waterfalls.
The site of a major volcanic eruption in 1980, today Mount St Helens is home to a dramatic landscape of hardened lava with an almost out-of-this world feel about it.
Considered one of the most dangerous active volcanos in the world, Mount Rainier is covered with breathtaking glaciers and wildflower meadows teeming with life. Hip cafes, quirky galleries and a vibrant live music scene, Seattle's edgy culture offers everything you would expect from the birthplace of grunge.
