Overview

Operated by ?

A sampling of Seattle, the beautiful Oregon coast, and San Francisco make this magnificent journey along with the Pacific Coast one you'll remember. Start your Pacific Coast tour in charming Seattle, end in San Francisco, and overnight also in Portland, Newport, Coos Bay, and Eureka. Sightseeing in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco includes Seattle’s Pike’s Peak Market where you can shop and dine like the locals. In Portland, see the International Rose Test Gardens, the largest rose garden in Portland. Also in Portland, enjoy an extra day to attend the famous Portland Rose Festival’s Grand Floral Parade from specially selected reserved indoor seats.

Enjoy some of the spectacular scenery waiting in Oregon, including Oregon’s oceanside sand dunes, with wind-sculpted sand dunes stretching 500 feet above sea level; the beautiful Multnomah Falls; and the many majestic views and scenic lighthouses along the Oregon Coast. Also, experience a cruise on Oregon’s scenic Rogue River. Follow the path just as Rogue River pioneers have done since 1895 when road access did not exist. You’ll also have the chance to experience wildlife, pristine wilderness and fascinating mail boat history. Another out-of-the-ordinary adventure Globus has arranged is a scenic train ride on a heritage railroad to the Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum followed by lunch.

In California, view the world's tallest trees in spectacular Redwood National Park and along Avenue of the Giants, a quiet 2-lane road that winds through some of the world’s most spectacular scenery with ancient redwood trees. You’ll even have the opportunity to see a 1,800-year-old redwood! From its vibrant cities to its spectacular scenery, this Pacific Coast tour is sure to delight all of your senses!
