From Seattle to San Fran, experience the highlights of the Pacific Northwest.
Explore the Pacific Northwest on this 11-day trip travelling from Seattle to San Fran. You’ll pass through lush national parks and stunning wildernesses, and indulge in a surprisingly unique food, beer and wine scene. With glacier-capped mountains and old-growth forests, Mount Rainier National Park is a natural paradise, and progressive Portland is vibin’ in all its quirky hipster glory. Tread the trails through the world’s tallest trees in Redwood National Park, follow the Wild Rivers Coast Food Trail and finish up in cosmopolitan San Francisco. Let the cooler climate delight you and a lesser-known USA route surprise you on a memorable small-group adventure.
Explore the incredible forests, mountains and rivers of Mount Rainier National Park, and head to the stunning Multonomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.
Treat yourself to a world-class food and beer scene in the progressive city of Portland. Head to one of the many microbreweries and embark on a cycling adventure through its renowned food truck pods.
Some of Oregon and California’s beaches are not to be missed. View the Circles in the Sand art installation in Bandon and visit the strangely colourful Glass Beach in Fort Bragg.
Walk among some of the world's oldest and tallest trees in the lush Redwood National Park in northern California.
Finish up in the City by the Bay, San Francisco. Take a look at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, and explore the diverse and multicultural city, with the option to extend your stay.
The regions visited on this trip can experience extremes in weather and temperature. Please be prepared for all weather conditions, especially if travelling outside of the July/August summer months. Bring layers of warm clothing and sun protection and ensure you drink plenty of water.
The USA is a big country. Distances between destinations may be longer than what you're used to, especially if you're coming from Europe. There are some long days of driving, so expect to spend a lot of time in the van. Conditions can feel a little cramped, but the passing scenery and your new friends in the van will keep you occupied.
Homelessness in the USA, particularly in greater San Francisco, is a widespread problem. Please note you will likely encounter some of San Francisco’s homeless community when travelling through the city. It is important, just like in any city, to stay alert and respectful of people around, especially at night.
