Gateway to Washington State Adventure
Washington State's Pacific Northwest is known for its wide open spaces, pristine national parks and bucket list wilderness and wildlife adventures.
Washington is the ideal fly-drive destination. Three contrasting national parks (Mt. Rainier / Olympic / North Cascades) provide visitors with the choice of 'ice and fire' volcanic and glacial mountains, rainforests of bearded mossy and massive girthed trees, aqua blue lakes and spectacular Pacific Ocean beaches. Washington's burgeoning wine industry has blossomed to over 1,000 wineries and some of its superb wines are now available in the UK.
Seattle is a buzzing city of culture, nightlife, music and entrepreneurial chefs, yet it is surrounded by rugged mountains and waterfront scenes. To the northwest, beautiful islands dot the ocean where whale watching, boating and kayaking experiences await, as Bald Eagles soar overhead.
Creating the perfect gateways to the region, the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) is connected by direct non-stop flights in under 9.5 hours from the UK and Ireland by many airlines including British Airways, Delta, Aer Lingus and Icelandair, whilst the Port of Seattle's two cruise terminals host the top cruise lines sailing out to Alaska on 7 day plus wilderness adventures.
