The Pacific Northwest – Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island
This is a relatively short driving tour beginning in Seattle and covering the rugged Pacific Coast, Olympic National Park and Vancouver Island.
From Seattle looking west you would see the jagged mountain tops of the Olympic Range. You start by driving south and then west to the coast. The first night’s stay would be at Moclips in a cliff top hotel, looking down on the rugged coast with its beach littered with huge logs and pounded by the Pacific breakers. This is followed by a short hop to Lake Quinault in the temperate rainforest of the Olympic National Park, one of the country’s most ancient forests. This is followed by a stay at Lake Crescent in the northern part of the park. The park is great place to explore with breathtaking mountain vistas; lakes ; meadows of wildflowers and colourful ocean tide pools. A ferry ride will then take you across into Canada and to Victoria on the bottom tip of Vancouver Island. After this you can round it off with a night or two in Vancouver.
As an add-on or as a separate trip, we highly recommend a luxury lodge, which we have sent a number of clients too and all have enjoyed their stay immensely. It is located on the rugged western Pacific Coast of Vancouver island and built on a rocky headland, with the sea on three sides. The lodge is made of wood, has a top quality restaurant and all bedrooms have a view of the sea or beach through their huge floor to ceiling windows. This is a spectacular setting to unwind at.
This is a rough frame work to expand and contract into the best fit, please call to discuss.
