Day 1
San Francisco - Bodega Bay - Santa Rosa
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.

Meals: All meals to be paid locally

Day 2
Crater Lake
Today is a long drive day through the lush wine lands of Sonoma and Napa to the Cascade mountain range. Your destination is Union Creek, located just outside Crater Lake National Park. Take in unreal views of Mount Shasta, standing tall over 4000m, this snowcapped volcano is bound to turn your attention away from your latest Netflix binge.

Days 3-4
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.

Days 5-6
Call it what you want – ‘City of Roses’, ‘Bridge City’, or ‘Beervana’ - Portland is simply awesome! It's a lively city full of quirky cafes and cool hipster folk, so grab yourself a flat white and enjoy some people watching. We’re helping to ‘keep Portland weird’ with a BrewCycle tour, a great activity to check out some of Portland’s best neighbourhoods and breweries (tastings at own cost). 

Meals: All meals to be paid locally

Day 7
Travel further north and enjoy a brief fling with Cannon Beach on the Pacific north west coast. Pelican Brewpub is the ideal spot located on the vast stretches of sand to enjoy a farewell ale before continuing on to Seattle where your tour comes to an end.
