NEW FALL OPTIONS

A Taste of Autumn in the Pacific Northwest

The vivid autumn colors of harvest fill the Pacific Northwest with dazzling reds, golds, and oranges, making even New England jealous. The air teases your senses with scents of a bountiful earth. There are changing-leaf festivals and hiking trails—The Enchantments and Blackbird Island are perfect for exploring. (See brilliant colors reflected on the waters of mountain lakes.)

Northwest rainforests are mythic in the fall, waterfalls are more intense, and salmon swim in creeks where otters wait to catch them. Northwestern urban areas have parks with forests, streams, sand dunes, and meadows; all framed by the legendary Mt. HoodRainier, the Cascade Range, and the Olympic Forest. The Columbia River Gorge is a mixed blaze of color and pines.

Fall is prime time for fishing—discover the Jubilee Salmon Derby. Imagine a cheese-tasting trail. How about an entire city block, made Halloween-eerie, with ghosts and spirits. Homemade fudge and caramel corn. Whale watching on the San Juan’s as the gentle giants head south for the winter. Harvesting hops. Luscious apple orchards. A traditional Bavarian village, or a six-course farm-fresh banquet. The Pacific Northwest revels in autumn!

NEW WINTER OPTIONS

A Winter of Wonder in the Pacific Northwest

A winter vacation in the Pacific Northwest offers a world of extraordinary choices. Snow-covered and mythic, mountains rise up from legendary rivers. Lodges are designed for cozy evenings. Days can be filled with adventures or a tranquil escape where the texture of winter’s silence makes life a gentle idyll. Dining is exceptional, and wineries are ready for private tastings during their “cellar season.”

Skiing, both downhill and cross-country, is sublime and the options are many. There’s also snow-shoeingtubingsleigh ridessledding, and ice-skating. Come evening, have a night cap or indulge in s’mores by a fjord-side fire pit. Perhaps soak in a hot tub with a local glass of Pinot Noir. If you want moody charm, head to the ocean and feel the power.

Trek a wildlife park with a guide—cooler weather brings out roaming animals. Go on a walkabout in the evergreens. Delight in fresh Dungeness crab—the season opens in late fall—and oyster farms. Discover creative arts in charming communities that welcome you. This is the time of year for truffles and wine pairings. Imagine holiday cheer that eases you straight through the winter months.

Pacific Northwest Adventures

Oregon and Washington. . . The Pacific Northwest stirs our senses. Perhaps it’s the moisture in the air, but the colors are almost textured. This area was inhabited by indigenous people who thrived on plentiful seafood. We still savor wild salmon, halibut, shellfish, berries of all sorts, plus native fruits, vegetables and cheeses. We also love the microbreweries, wines, and ciders. Boats ferry us between islands. The region is blessed with diverse cultures and vibrant communities. The coast has black sand beaches and the interior has wild rivers and superb wineries. The art scene is cutting-edge and nature is treasured. Experience it.

Each vacation is customized to create an experience that’s uniquely yours. You want to be amazed when you travel. We do the in-depth research, planning, and booking so your travel dreams become a reality.

Check out some of our suggested itineraries. Then, connect with us to design a trip filled with wonder and the best souvenir of all—a lifetime of memories.

That’s the Authentic Experience.
