Short Description

This 9-day escorted tour of America’s magnificent Pacific Northwest from Seattle, Washington to Portland, Oregon will renew the spirit with breathtaking sights and experiences. Begin in the vibrant city of Seattle and travel through the beauty of the Cascade Mountains. Enjoy German food in the Cascades and taste wine in the vineyards of Washington’s wine country. Take in the mountain air along the Hood River with a visit to Mount Hood, more than 11,000 feet above sea level on your way to Bend to sample local Oregon craft beers. Visit Crater Lake National Park with a drive around the rim encircling the deep blue waters in this spectacular setting. Explore windswept Oregon Dunes via dune buggy! Travel along spectacular views of the Oregon Coast on the 101 Highway en route to Newport’s historic Bayfront. Follow Three Capes Scenic Route for breathtaking views and explore Meares Cape Lighthouse, then try the famous cheeses and saltwater taffy in Tillamook. See Lewis and Clark’s “End of the Trail” in Seaside and enjoy the shops and sandy reaches of this lovely resort town. Continue to the coastal city of Astoria—nestled in the hills above the Columbia River. Marvel at Multnomah Falls 611-foot cataract en route to Portland, the “City of Roses.” This guided vacation in North America’s Pacific Northwest is a stunning adventure like no other.

I am a budget solo female traveler. I have traveled with COSMOS for about 20 years in the past, all over Europe, Switzerland, Turkey, etc. The best thing is that I never have to pay extra for single supplement when I room with someone. If Cosmos can not find a room mate for you, you end up having the whole room. Because of this feature, I was able to travel everywhere by my self with reasonable price. Cosmos always provides great value for the bucks. I would do it again. I highly recommend to you all.
