Day 1 | Seattle

Arrive in Seattle, where you are escorted with your group to the Port of Seattle to ferry to the Olympic Peninsula. En route we’ll go over our exiting upcoming itinerary. Settle in at Lake Crescent Lodge and then enjoy dinner together and learn to make S’mores on the beach.

Day 2 | Olympic National Park

This morning we’ll cycle from the resort around Hood Canal into Olympic National Park. Ride past the quaint maritime town of Hoodsport and the crystal clear blue waters of Lake Cushman and finally into the Park to enjoy lunch surrounded by lush forests. Afterward, we’ll return to the resort where you can explore the canal by kayak or simply relax with a glass of wine.

In search of native birds and marine life, this morning we’ll drive along the north shore to Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge before heading into the Olympic Mountains and up to the park’s iconic Hurricane Ridge for dramatic views of glacier-capped peaks. Heading back down to sea-level, we’ll make a brief stop at Finn River Cidery for a tasting and then hop a ferry to Whidbey Island to overnight at the Inn at Langley.

Day 4 | Whidbey Island

After a hardy breakfast at the Inn, we start today’s adventure cycling along the western shore of the island. Enjoy scenic views from the bluffs overlooking the water as well as stops at local farms, Crockett Lake, and Fort Casey before lunch in the charming town of Coupeville. Afterward, set out on an optional beach-side hike at Ebey’s Landing, or head back to Langley for wine tasting and relaxation.

Day 5 | Deception Pass

Take in the impressive and diverse habitat at Deception Pass State Park by hiking to its highpoint and beach-combing the shoreline. Then hop on your bike to cycle across the 976-foot span bridge to admire the dramatic churning waters. Next we’ll continue toward Anacortes for tide- pooling and hiking at Washington Park before reaching the ferry terminal for a scenic hour-long ride through the waterways of the San Juan Archipelago to Friday Harbor, our home for the next three nights.

Orcas_Playing_SanJuanDay 6 | San Juan Islands

Explore the island before hopping aboard a whale-watching trip to seek out the orca whale pods that call the area home year-round. These still-mysterious animals have inspired natives of the regions for thousands of years – join the club.

Day 7 | San Juan Islands

Island-hop today, exploring Lopez or Orcas Island by ferry. These less-inhabited islands offer beautiful vistas and great cycling or walking opportunities. Enjoy your last night on San Juan Island watching the sun set at Lime Kiln State Park, where orcas and porpoises often swim right by.

Day 8 | Departure

Say goodbye to your gregarious guides as you hop aboard a seaplane for the scenic return flight to Seattle. Upon disembarking the aircraft, you’ll be transferred to your hotel or the Seattle International Airport.

Surrounded by stunning wilderness and waterways, the Emerald City is defined by its natural beauty and eclectic urban charm. Iconic landmarks, historic districts, city woodlands, locks, and Discovery Park, the city’s most spectacular natural preserve are what the locals are most proud of. Spot for wildlife and learn the local and natural history, culture and geology of this diverse region.  Even learn how this city is changing world views on progressive and sustainable initiatives.
Olympic National Park

Discover this gem of a destination with an expert naturalist at your side. Hike the country’s oldest forests down to prehistoric-looking beaches. At the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, take an interpretative walk out onto the sand spit. Twice a year, waterfowl and shorebirds descend on these parts. Head up to Hurricane Ridge for a panorama of jagged peaks, alpine meadows, and the sea. Embark on a journey to the wild and rugged coast and the jaw dropping rainforest that makes this park one of only 20 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in North America.

Whidbey Island

Washington’s largest island, Whidbey, provides an impressive diversity of unique natural, historical, and agricultural experiences.  Once the home of several Coast Salish tribes, Whidbey now claims to be Puget Sound’s largest artist community, and supports many well-known painters, writers, and entertainers, among others.  It’s no surprise they choose to live here, considering Whidbey Island’s stunning scenery (Whidbey boasts Washington’s most popular State Park, Deception Pass), wealth of local agriculture (including aquaculture and the world-famous Penn Cove Mussel), and intriguing history (Ebey’s Landing is the nation’s first National Historic Reserve, as established by the National Park Service).  Simply put, Whidbey Island is a fantastic representation of all the best that Western Washington has to offer!

San Juan Island

The San Juan archipelago harbors near-mythical beauty amid its undeveloped islands and seascapes. Its historical relevance is just as intriguing. Spend the day discovering this remote wilderness with a naturalist guide. As the morning ferry cruises to Friday Harbor, keep an eye out for animals. Then embark on a 3-hour orca search by kayak, passing wildlife refuges and rugged coastline. Picnic with local fare and a glass of wine, then explore historic British and American “Pig War” camps. As evening sets, visit an island winery or lavender farm.
