Each of the islands of Orcas, Lopez and San Juan offer abundant options for cycling, enchanting hikes, superb beaches and unique marine ecosystems. This is the best of the Pacific Northwest, world’s away from mainland, where the island charm is welcoming. Starting from the historic village of La Conner, we enjoy an easy day of cycling in the Skagit Valley before cruising to the islands from Anacortes; on the San Juan Islands, there are a few rewarding hills each day but the distances are modest and support never far if needed. In addition to cycling, there is the opportunity to hike to outstanding viewpoints, and sea-kayak in secluded coves. There is even the opportunity to sail for ½ day aboard a historic wooden 42’ yacht. The accommodations are lovely and by week’s end, you won’t want to leave this enchanting corner of Washington State.
