VIEWS OF THE COUNTRYSIDE
3 Day Tour of Oregon, Washington & British Columbia
Portland is Oregon's most populous city, but just minutes
out of the city limits, you will find some of the most stunning scenery in the
United States. This tour is a great way to see all the best!
Day 1 - Depart Portland, crossing into the state of Washington. As you journey northward, notice the Cascade Mountain Range in all its splendor, with Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier as the focal points. Your coach will make its way up the beautiful Olympic Peninsula to the tip at Port Angeles, where you sail across the Strait of Juan
de Fuca to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. This special city will make you feel as if you have dropped into Merry Ol' England for a jaunt.
Day 2 - Enjoy the exquisite beauty of Butchart Gardens this morning,
filled with forty acres of ever-blooming flowers in dozens of varieties. Make your way to the ferry landing for a trip to the mainland with an overnight stop in Vancouver,
BC, noted as one of the most fascinating cities in North America. You will not want to miss Robson Street, Stanley Park and Canada Place!
Day 3 - Depart Canada this morning to stop in Seattle for lunch. Visit the Pike Place Market or check out Seattle Center and the world-famous Space Needle. Then
return to Portland for the evening with a stop by Mount St. Helens,
wracked by a volcanic explosion in 1980, along the way. You'll have a 'birds-eye' view of the wonderful Pacific Northwest in just three short days! (Option: return to your home city from Seattle)
** this tour will require proper identification (such as
a passport), as this trip will be crossing international borders
