ITINERARY INSPIRATION

SAN FRANCISCO, OREGON & WASHINGTON

The road trip-style holiday was virtually invented in America and once you climb into your hire car and ‘head for the hills’ you’ll see why.
SAN FRANCISCO, OREGON & WASHINGTON

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

The USA’s landscapes are wide open and hugely diverse, and the trail to Oregon and Washington is a classic. You begin in San Francisco with its iconic landmarks and meander into the world famous Napa Valley wine region.

Next you travel along the rugged Pacific coastline and into Oregon. Vineyards and a stunning volcanic lake welcome you, before you head off into Washington State and the rural Walla Walla region. Your tour culminates in the famous harbour city of Seattle.

DAY 1

SAN FRANCISCO

Arrive in California. You’ll collect your car – a luxury SUV-style vehicle – from Avis Airport depot and drive off to your hotel.

You’ll be staying in San Francisco’s SoMA area, so Union Square and the financial district are on your doorstep, and the city’s great sightseeing opportunities are all easily accessible.

Stay: One night in a grand deluxe room in the St. Regis Hotel.

DAY 2-3

NAPA

Now your great American road trip really begins. You head off through the rolling Californian countryside to one of the USA’s most acclaimed wine growing regions. You’ll pass majestic mountains and wineries with rank after rank of profuse grape vines, to arrive in a secluded canyon in the Upper Napa Valley. The countryside is strewn with ancient oak trees, streams that carve through solid rock and a scenic lake. You’ll stay on a ranch with its own vineyard.

Stay: Two nights in a Bay Forest Lodge at Calistoga Ranch.

MENDOCINO
DAY 4-5

MENDOCINO

Now the ocean calls you. Leaving the fertile Napa Valley you drive along the coast of the mighty Pacific Ocean, following the rugged yet achingly beautiful coastline past hidden beaches, craggy inlets and towering cliffs giving eye-stretching seascape views. You’ll want to stop often to exercise your camera.

Stay: Two nights in a deluxe ocean king room in Heritage House.

DAY 6-7

CRATER LAKE LODGE

Follow the trail into Oregon and you’ll be treated to some jaw-dropping scenery, and none more spectacular than your destination. Crater Lake was formed when a volcano literally exploded and left a huge caldera. That was way back in around 4680 BC – today, the resulting lake with its 2000 foot high cliffs is the very picture of deep blue tranquillity and the surrounding Crater Lake National Park is one of the USA’s lesser-known jewels.

Stay: Two nights in a partial lake view room at Crater Lake Lodge.

DAY 8-9

WILLAMETTE VALLEY

The next step of your journey in Oregon takes you to another famous vineyard region. The long and fertile Willamette Valley area of the Pacific Northwest produces some classic and extremely palatable wines – a superb pinot noir being amongst the most notable. And potable!

Stay: Two nights in a grand deluxe king room in Allison Inn.

DAY 10-11

CANNON BEACH

From volcanic caldera lakes and gentle vineyards to superb beaches – Oregon continues to deliver unforgettable destinations. The town of Cannon Beach is one of the most picturesque seaside settlements along the Pacific coast, and the surrounding scenery is awe-inspiring. Expect great rock formations rising enigmatically out of a mist-shrouded sea and sweeping, deserted beach panoramics.

Stay: Two nights in an ocean king studio at Ocean Lodge.

DAY 12-13

WALLA WALLA

Today you say goodbye to Oregon and drive into Washington State, heading for Walla Walla. This oddly-named town is the largest city in Walla Walla County and is surrounded by rolling fields of sweet onions and wheat, punctuated by over 100 wineries producing fine vintages. In fact, you’ll stop at an inn in the midst of 35 acres of vines, gardens, lawns and creeks.

Stay: Two nights in a farm suite at the Abeja Inn.

Seattle | Space Needle | Ultimate Travel Company
DAY 14

SEATTLE

Now you head into the famous coastal city of Seattle. Your hotel is easy to find – it’s the only one standing in the city’s renowned Pike Place Market, just a couple of minutes’ easy walk to the busy Seattle Waterfront, the town’s most upscale restaurants and iconic sightseeing opportunities.

Stay: One night in a water view room at the Inn at the Market.

DAY 15

FLY HOME

It’s time to bid the USA farewell until the next time and fly back home.
