As recently as 200 years ago, the northwest coast of the Pacific was a vast wilderness of dense forests, craggy peaks, and pounding surf. Today, that scenic splendor calls to nature lovers, along with a unique culture that takes pride in locally sourced foods, craft beer and wines, and a robust arts scene. On this brand-new adventure, you will visit the great cities of the Pacific Northwest, from Seattle and Portland to San Francisco and its iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Even better, you’ll venture along scenic byways and stop at working farms, view quaint working lighthouses, and marvel at majestic redwood forests.

Along the way, stay at superior accommodations, including 12 nights at hotels and 2 nights at a charming inn. Plus, our immersive Cultural Discoveries will have you sampling the wines of California’s esteemed Sonoma County, tasting artisanal cheeses, meeting a forest ranger, visiting local artists’ studios, and so much more. Don’t miss this chance to experience culture, cuisine, and nature right in your own backyard with Vantage!
