Seattle & The Pacific Northwest

Perfect for foodies, outdoor enthusiasts and the adventurous alike, holidays to the Pacific Northwest of America are packed with tasty treats and wild vistas at every turn. Seattle boasts a buzzing music scene and fantastic fresh cuisine, from the famous fish throwers of Pike Place Market to award winning Pacific Rim cuisine. From this coastal city you can join a thrilling seaplane ride or boat trip onto the Pacific to look for the resident orcas, dolphins, seals and porpoises that call these waters home. On a Pacific Northwest fly drive journey to the rainforests, mountains and ocean views of the Olympic Peninsula or head inland to Washington and Oregon’s award winning vineyards. No Pacific Northwest road trip would be complete without a drive along the Columbia River to independent spirited Portland, with its craft breweries and creative arts scene.
