Washington State​ Holidays

If you're a fan of the Great Outdoors, then there's no better reason to visit Washington State. Mother Nature has pulled out all the stops here, blanketing the land with soaring mountains, stunning gorges, and Alpine wildflower meadows - even a rainforest in the Hoh River Valley. No surprise then that it boasts three National Parks and a long list of State Parks - and no surprise either that it's nick-named the 'Emerald State'.

Washington State isn't all about green spaces either. Its Pacific coastline offers spectacularly rugged scenery, and you may find yourself alone on the sand with just the ocean spray and a succession of weather-beaten stacks for company. With nearly one million acres, Olympic National Park is the king of Washington’s parks, offering the best of all worlds with everything from windswept beaches to lush rain forests to glacier-capped mountains.

All that outdoors means lots of activities, and it's pure paradise for hikers, who can choose between scaling mountains, ambling along coastal trails, or heading to panoramic viewpoints like those along Mount Baker's Chain Lakes Loop Trail. There's lots of water-based fun to be had too, and sea kayaking is practically a way of life in the San Juan Islands, while there's great windsurfing in the Columbia River Gorge. Or, consider a cruise. Seattle is the Gateway to Alaska with over 216 ship departures in 2017.

Another stellar reason to visit Washington State is to stop by its jewel of a city - Seattle. This mecca for coffee lovers, packed with bustling cafés, is a lively and welcoming place. There’s lots to experience in Seattle including historic Pike Place Market (the longest continuous running farmer's market in the USA), the Space Needle and MoPop, the Museum of Culture. State capital Olympia with its vibrant arts scene and stunning parkland is also well worth a visit. City or countryside, Washington State provides exciting options for the adventurous traveller.

Seattle

Olympic National Park

Mountains, isolated stretches of coast, forests and spectacular views are all part and parcel of this vast 1,400 square-mile wilderness. Hike through wildflower meadows to the rugged crags and glaciers of Mount Olympus; go swimming in Lake Crescent; explore the giant ferns of the forests; view the sea stacks and islands that dot the spray-strewn coastline; and leave the crowds far behind.

San Juan Islands

Accessible by ferry from Seattle or by seaplane, the islands in this group have unique personalities. Lopez has rolling fields and pastures, whereas beautiful Orcas Island is dramatically mountainous. San Juan is the largest, home to the bustling port of Friday Harbor. It's the perfect place for sea kayaking trips and for spotting orca and mink whales, harbor seals and bald eagles.

Mount Rainier

The North-West's highest peak and its 27 glaciers lies just 58 miles east of Seattle. There's fantastic walking and driving throughout the Park, with stunning wildflowers carpeting the land from July to August. The Sunrise viewpoint offers panoramic views over the mountain and Emmons Glacier - the largest in the US outside Alaska.

Superb Scenery

Even if you don't fancy walking, there's some spectacular sights you can access on four wheels. The Cascades Loop circles through the Cascades mountains, past glacier-fed lakes and along river valleys rich with wildlife. Or follow the Columbia River Scenic Highway for breathtaking views of plunging cliffs and frothing waterfalls.

Mount St. Helens

Visit Washington State and see a live volcano! Mount St Helens blew its top in spectacular style in 1980 and there was a smaller eruption as late as 2004. You can get a good look at the sometimes-smoking crater from the Johnston Ridge Observatory and learn all about the volcano's explosive history at the various visitor centres.
