Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK/San Francisco
  • Today you'll depart on your scheduled flight to San Francisco. On arrival, we'll transfer you to your hotel where a two-night stay gives you plenty of time to get to know this exciting, cosmopolitan city.​
  • DAY 2 San Francisco
  • We'll explore San Francisco together, on a sightseeing tour which includes Fisherman's Wharf, the sharp hairpin turns of Lombard Street and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Once you have your bearings you can set your own pace this afternoon, perhaps take an optional bay cruise or a thrilling helicopter ride. Then, if you're still raring to go this evening, you can view the city by night on an optional tour.
  • DAY 3 Eureka
  • Leaving the hills of San Francisco behind, we will journey across the Golden Gate Bridge and head northwards into California's scenic wine country. On arrival at our hotel in the Victorian seaport of Eureka we'll find a wine and beer reception waiting.​
  • DAY 4 Grant’s Pass
  • As your journey continues to Oregon today, you're going to get the chance to explore Redwood National Park. The coast redwood is the tallest known plant species in the world, soaring to more than 350 feet tall, and living for an average of 600 years. Before arrival in Grant's Pass, another highlight of today is a visit to a winery for a tasting.​
  • DAY 5 Crater Lake
  • You're in for a scenic treat today as you visit Crater Lake. The area's violent volcanic past has given way to this tranquil, picturesque body of water which is renowned for its deep-blue colour. Surrounded by cliffs, it is America's deepest lake and is fed entirely by rain and snow. Back at Grant's pass, you can spend the rest of the day just as you wish.​
  • DAY 6 Newport
  • Today you'll travel to Newport, on the Oregon Coast, a place that seafood lovers will know as the 'Dungeness Crab Capital of the World'. Of course, a crabbing demonstration is included on arrival, as well as a guided stroll along fisherman's memorial walk and a delicious crab cocktail. Waiting for you at your hotel is a complimentary glass of wine or beer, and after time to settle in, an evening treat has been arranged. We're going to head to the beach where we'll roast marshmallows over an open fire (weather/season permitting​).
  • DAY 7 Portland
  • We're heading to Portland today, a scenic journey which includes a stop at the ancient wooden Yaquina Bay Lighthouse on the way. Built in 1871, this is believed to be the oldest structure in Newport​.
  • DAY 8 Portland
  • We'll get out and about today as we discover the Columbia River Gorge and Hood River. The spot where the Columbia River carves a dramatic canyon between the states of Oregon and Washington offers breathtaking views. We'll also admire Mount Hood, the tallest peak in Oregon.
  • DAY 9 Seattle
  • You'll spend the final two nights of your holiday in Seattle, and you'll head here today, but not before the chance to view Mount St Helens. This active volcano, at 40,000 years old, is relatively young and offers a great photo opportunity.​
  • DAY 10 Seattle
  • A day to yourself gives you the opportunity to explore Seattle at your own pace. It's a city surrounded by stunning natural scenery and boasting an impressive skyline, and if you head to Kerry Park, your reward will be sensational views. Another great place to visit is the famous Pike Place Market, and if you want to stop for a coffee, the original branch of Starbucks is right here.​

  • DAY 11 Seattle/UK
  • Enjoy your final morning at leisure before we transfer you to the airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.​
  • DAY 12 UK
  • Today you'll arrive back in the UK.
