Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Fly to Vancouver International Airport and transfer to your hotel for a two-night stay.

  • Day 2 - Vancouver

    Enjoy a full day at leisure providing ample time to take in Vancouver's sights and attractions.

    Or, take an optional ferry ride across the island-dotted Strait of Georgia, to Victoria Island.

    The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria is a unique blend of old-world charm and new-world experiences. Combined with the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and rainforests set against a backdrop of the Olympic Mountains, a visit to Victoria makes for the perfect day trip.

  • Day 3 - Seattle

    Today's journey takes us across the Canada/U.S. border to the jewel of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle where we will stay for one night.

    Set on the waterfront and framed by snow-capped mountains, Seattle is a sophisticated city that offers visitors a real sampling of Northwest life.

    The Downtown Seattle Waterfront is a great place to take in the views of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains, and no visit would be complete without strolling through the grounds at the Seattle Centre and checking out the spectacular view from the Space Needle's 520-foot high observation deck.

  • Day 4 - Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens & Portland

    This morning we head for Portland, Oregon's largest city and one of the world's best walking cities where we will stay for one night.

    En route, visit Mount Rainier National Park and Mount St. Helens, both active volcanoes and part of the Northwest's 'Ring of Fire'.

    Ascending to 14,410 feet above sea level and often shrouded in clouds, Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous U.S. and stands as an icon in the Washington landscape.

  • Day 5 - Oregon Dunes & Coos Bay

    Today, we enjoy a scenic drive along Oregon's coastline where spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding forests await.

    Travel south through Newport and the heart of the central coast to Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.

    Extending for over 40 miles, Oregon Dunes features wind-sculpted sand dunes that tower up to 500 feet above sea level.

    We continue on to Coos Bay for an overnight stay. Historically a shipbuilding hub, today Coos Bay is the largest city on the Oregon coast.

  • Day 6 - Redwood National Park

    Continuing south, the rugged Oregon coastline offers stunning views, endless beaches, crashing waves and beautiful lighthouses; while California's spectacular Redwood Coast offers sparkling beaches, cascading rivers, quiet countryside, historic communities and a forest as old as the dinosaurs.

    Nearly half of the remaining old growth redwoods can be found in Redwood National Park, including giants five stories taller than the Statue of Liberty. We travel on to Eureka for an overnight stay.

  • Day 7 - Sonoma

    Today, pass through the unbelievably picturesque Village of Mendocino, recently designated a Preserve America Community; where every structure speaks of history, en route to Northern California's Wine Country, Sonoma.

    Home to perfect grape-growing conditions, dazzling displays of colour as the seasons change and a Mediterranean climate, this region is host to some of the most famous wineries in the world.

    Sonoma County was established from humble beginnings, when Russian colonists planted grapes on the pacific coast of Sonoma in 1812, with innovative vintners making history with the region now being host to over 400 award-winning wineries. The area has 17 American Viticultural Areas (AVA’s) and more than 60 types of grapes growing within them. We will stay in the area for one night.

  • Day 8 - San Francisco

    This morning, cross the Golden Gate Bridge, an engineering marvel and one of the most beloved bridges in the world, before arriving in San Francisco.

    The city’s Victorian rooflines, wind-sculpted tree tips and the rolling fog, tumbling over some of the most iconic landmarks in the USA, San Francisco is a true marvel, waiting to be explored.

    You will enjoy free time in ‘The City by the Bay’ as we stay in San Francisco for one night.

  • Day 9

    Enjoy free time to explore San Francisco before transferring to the airport for your overnight return flight.

  • Day 10

    Morning arrival in U.K.
