Your Guided Tour

Day 1: San Francisco

Hotel: Hyatt Regency San Francisco

Day 2: San Francisco - Eureka

What better way to get a taste of San Francisco than by crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the world's most recognisable landmarks. If you are up for a walk, grab your cameras and join your Travel Director for a stroll across this impressive feat of engineering. Learn all about the bridge and why it's not painted gold despite its name. En route to the lively seaport town of Eureka, drive along the stunning Avenue of the Giants to Humboldt Redwoods State Park, filled with some of the tallest trees you will ever see.

Arrive in Coos Bay and enjoy the evening at leisure.

Then stop at Heceta Head overlook and see a beautiful 19th-century lighthouse that casts its beam out to sea, before checking into your spectacular oceanfront rooms.

Hotel: Hallmark Resort Newport, 2 nights

Day 5: Newport

After a leisurely breakfast, join a sea life cruise where you'll want to keep an eye out for sea life and marine birds as the onboard naturalist, your Local Specialist, tells you all about your surroundings. With your free time this afternoon, perhaps explore Newport's historic waterfront.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 6: Newport - Willamette Valley - Portland

Tour the Evergreen Aviation Museum, where you will see the Spruce Goose and celebrate the lives of innovators, pilots, and veterans who courageously pioneered flight.

Continue on to Portland where your evening is free.

Day 7: Portland

Today you'll discover some of Oregon's most beautiful scenery along the historic Columbia River Highway. Stop at Chanticleer Point and the Vista House for panoramic views of the river from 733 feet (223 metres) above. Vista House's octagonal building and copper dome is home to an interpretive display of historic and geologic points of interest in the gorge. Then it's onward to Multnomah Falls, the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States, and Oregon's tallest. Lunch is on your own in Hood River, consistently named one of the best small towns in the United States. Perhaps enjoy a local speciality of salmon with chips at a local brewery and sip one of the many craft beers Oregon is known for. Visit Timberline Lodge with great views of Mt. Hood before enjoying a free evening in Portland.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 8: Portland - Mount St. Helens - Olympic National Park

Visit the award-winning Mount St. Helens Visitor Center, dedicated to the active Ring-of-Fire volcano that erupted in 1980. Learn about the legendary blast, an eruption so colossal that it spewed ash into 11 states, as you watch a reenactment of the event and experience interactive exhibits such as a step-in volcano model and working seismograph. Venture west to the rugged coast of Olympic National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and International Biosphere Reserve, the park contains three distinct ecosystems. Then meet Harvest Moon, a Local Specialist, who shares with you the tribal legends and stories of the Quinault people who have long called the Pacific Northwest home.

Hotel: Quinault Lodge Authentic Accommodation
Meals: Breakfast and dinner

Day 9: Olympic National Park - Seattle

Enter the beautiful Hoh Rainforest, one of the world's few (as well as the largest) temperate rainforests and trek to the eerie "Hall of Mosses" with trees and branches dripping with moss. Then make a stop at dazzling Lake Crescent before leaving Olympic National Park. Sensational views of the Seattle skyline unfold before you as you make your way by ferry across Puget Sound into the Emerald City. Enjoy the evening to explore Seattle.
