Vancouver Island and Olympic Peninsula Multisport Tour
Hike, Bike, Sea Kayak, and Raft the Best of the Pacific Northwest
Where ancient temperate rainforests and jagged mountains meet the pounding Pacific, British Columbia's Vancouver Island and Washington's Olympic Peninsula represent a vast and beautiful wilderness paradise. Hike through forested slopes that plunge into the ocean, explore the treasures of Becher Bay by sea kayak, raft through beautiful canyons, and mountain bike amid virgin forests.
Day 1: Port Angeles
After meeting in Seattle, we take a hike on the Dungeness Spit, a National Wildlife Refuge and one of the Olympic Peninsula's most remarkable natural features.
Day 2: Olympic National Park
We mountain bike on the sparkling shores of glacier-fed Lake Crescent before hiking through thick forests and soaking in luxurious Sol Duc hot springs.
Day 3: Olympic National Park-Victoria
Surrounded by majestic mountains, we raft through a spectacular canyon of old-growth forest. Then we ferry to Victoria, British Columbia's quaint provincial capital.
Days 4-5: Vancouver Island
We learn the basics of sea kayaking on Becher Bay, paddling among a variety of sea life including sea lions and whales. The temperate rainforests and rocky headlands of Vancouver Island are the setting for a day's hike along the famed Juan de Fuca Marine Trail.
Day 6: Vancouver Island-Seattle
For our grand finale, we mountain bike the exciting Galloping Goose Railroad Trail featuring ocean views and flower-strewn meadows before concluding our adventure with a ferry ride back to Seattle.
