Welcome to San Francisco! After meeting the group, you’ll begin your Northern Californian road trip along the Point Reyes National Seashore. Your first stop will be Bodega Bay, where you’ll get to know each other a little better over a welcome dinner.
After a leisurely breakfast in Bodega Bay, it’s onwards to your next scenic destination: Mendocino. With its abundance of white picket fences and well-kept gardens, this charming cliffside community is like a slice of New England on the West Coast.
You can rest assured that today’s journey will be just as much fun as the destination! Your route to Eureka will take in the spectacular Avenue of the Giants highway, so called as it is flanked by towering giant redwoods. When you reach your stop for the night, there’s an included dinner to look forward to.
There’s more natural majesty on the agenda today, with a visit to Redwood National Park all lined up for us. Here, you’ll wander the area’s many hiking trails and experience the ‘cathedral hush’ as you stand in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest (and most ancient) trees. Be sure to keep an eye out for Roosevelt elk, mountain lions and black bears while you’re here.
Prepare for a soul-stirring sight this morning – the magnificent Mt Shasta is your next stop. A lone peak rising from the horizon, this natural icon’s forested slopes are a place of pilgrimage for hikers, bikers and rafters alike. Tonight you’ll regroup to share a sumptuous three-course meal at your mountainside accommodation.
A labyrinthine series of natural limestone caves, the subterranean wonderland of the Lake Shasta Caverns is only accessible by boat – and today you’ll have the opportunity to see its fascinating rock formations up close. After emerging back into the daylight, you’ll hit the Sierra Oro Farm Trail – where you’ll have the opportunity to taste some local produce – and take a tour of the Sierra Nevada Brewery.
Today your road will take us through the lush green hills and tiered vineyards of the Napa Valley. Later on, the evening will be yours to immerse yourself in the area’s stellar scenery, sample some more of its finest produce, or simply unwind back at the hotel.
You’ve one more day to enjoy the verdant Napa Valley before you return to San Francisco tomorrow – and what better way to spend it than by clinking glasses and enjoying lunch at a local winery? Tonight you’ll reminisce about the times you’ve shared over one last spectacular dinner.
On the final leg of your journey, you’ll stop off in lovely Sausalito – where postcard-perfect houseboats, a famous boardwalk and excellent views of the Golden Gate Bridge are sure to provide endless photo opportunities. This afternoon, your trip will come to a close as you say goodbye to the group back in San Francisco.
