2019 Itinerary

Starting in San Francisco, you’ll get a glimpse of the ‘Golden City’ this morning, although we really recommend you book extra nights here and download a copy of our city guide to get the very best out of the ‘Golden City’. Our whistle-stop driving tour will include a walk across the Golden Gate Bridge before making your way through verdant northern California to the world renowned Laguitas Brewing Company. We’ll stop for lunch and tastings (own cost). Feeling lightheaded? Walk it off with an afternoon hike in Bodega Bay, where you might spot seals and migrating whales from the shore.

A morning hike along the Crater Lake Rim Trail will kick-start your day with spectacular views. We’re talking volcanic landscape on an epic scale: this is the collapsed volcano that created America’s deepest lake. But today is far from over. Travel to Bend, where an unforgettable evening awaits. Tonight, you have a starlight canoe tour of one of the stunning cascade lakes, with the celestial lights guiding your way. Choose to spend your free day in Bend with your tour leader on the infamous Bend ale trail, you’ll be given your beer ‘passport’ to get stamped along the way. Or get to know this beautiful small city by two wheels, two feet, or kayak. There’s plenty on offer here.
