Embark on an unforgettable journey through Washington, America's most northwesterly state, where the allure of urban charm and untamed wilderness meet. As the gateway to the Pacific Northwest, Seattle stands as a beacon of culture and innovation.


This fascinating city is a hard-working port on Puget Sound and a hub for artistry, celebrated for its pulsating music scene, illustrious galleries like the Seattle Art Museum, and a vibrant array of restaurants and bars. Yet, just a stone's throw from this bustling metropolis, the raw wilderness beckons. 

The majestic Cascades Range slices through the state, offering a paradise of walking and hiking trails in the North Cascades National Park, while the Olympic Peninsula, with its rugged mountains and rainforests, shelters Seattle from the Pacific.


Experience the sheer joy of road-tripping nirvana as you follow the iconic Highway 101, tracing the coast south towards Oregon and California. Discover Washington's diverse landscapes, from the dramatic Mount St Helens National Volcanic Monument to the fertile vineyards of the Yakima Valley. Indulge in the state's serious commitment to culinary excellence, with an abundance of organic ingredients, fresh seafood, and dining experiences in wild settings. 

Time your visit to coincide with renowned food and wine festivals like Taste Washington or the Red Wine and Chocolate weekend in the Yakima Valley.


In the heart of Olympic National Park, the Hoh Rain Forest offers a pristine example of temperate rainforest in the USA, inviting adventurers to explore its vast, green canopies and diverse ecosystems. Meanwhile, Seattle invites you to explore its many layers, from the breathtaking views atop the Space Needle to the historic underground streets. Dive into the cool waters of Puget Sound for an unparalleled scuba-diving experience, where you can encounter diverse marine life and explore underwater wrecks.

But it's not just about the natural wonders; Seattle's urban vibe is equally intoxicating. Known as America's capital of caffeine, the city boasts the highest concentration of coffeehouses in the country. Wander through Pike Place Market, a haven for food, wine, and art lovers, and immerse yourself in the city's rich coffee culture. Washington's diverse terrain offers a unique blend of hip urban attractions and breathtaking natural beauty, where every turn reveals another wonder.


As the sun sets on the wild and rugged Pacific Northwest, you'll find yourself in a state of constant awe. Washington is a place where you can hike through a national park in the morning, explore a volcanic monument in the afternoon, and breathe in the desert sage as evening falls. 

From the music legends of Seattle to the culinary delights and award-winning wines, Washington is a fly/drive destination like no other. Fly into Seattle direct from the UK and embark on a journey through pristine landscapes, historic towns, and vine-covered hillsides. 


Whether you're a nature enthusiast, a wine connoisseur, or an urban explorer, Washington promises an adventure that will leave you longing for more.
