  2. 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. Drive along the stunning Avenue of the Giants before arriving at Humboldt Redwoods State Park filled with some of the tallest trees you have ever seen.

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 specialty 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.

  8. 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.

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.
