Washington State is a land of contrasts; from the glorious San Juan Islands to the construction of Boeing aeroplanes; you can travel on your fly drive holiday from the remote first growth rain forest of the Olympic Peninsula to the bustling city of Seattle and from there out to the farmlands and mountain ranges. Your Washington holiday should include a visit to the volcano of Mount St Helens which erupted so spectacularly in 1980 covering 11 states (and some of Canada too) in ash or perhaps you would prefer to cruise the Columbia and Snake River sailing through the Columbia Gorge up to the Washington Wine Country.

Why should I visit Washington?
A glorious mix of sophistication and rural beauty. From the fine restaurants of Seattle and Washington’s wine country to the stark beauty of the Olympic Peninsula, a tailor-made fly-drive holiday through Washington State’s open roads is a delight.
Seattle, with its direct flights from London, is likely to be your first port of call in Washington State. Enjoy the view from the Space Needle, visit the Boeing factory and, of course, enjoy the coffee.
Carving its way through the Gorge of the same name, the Columbia River weaves its majestic way to the Pacific separating the states of Oregon and Washington. The famous Lewis & Clarke expedition travelled its banks, today drive either bank for great views and lots of waterfalls.
The wines of Washington are becoming increasingly well known with over 50,000 acres of vineyards. Visit the wonderfully named towns of Walla Walla and Yakima in the interior and Puget Sound on the coast. Crisp white wines and delicious deep Merlots abound.
Stretching north to the Canadian border, driving the Cascade Loop is a great experience. Lots of switchbacks and glorious views.
Jutting out into the Pacific Ocean, the Olympic Peninsula has miles of fabulous coastline, great forests combined with charming b&bs and historic lodges. The Olympic Peninsula is a must on any Washington fly-drive holiday.
San Juan Islands
Just the spot to relax after a busy fly-drive holiday, the San Juan Islands is an archipelago of small and charming islands with old growth forests, pretty beaches and boutique hotels. The islands are a haven for boaters and whales, especially orca for which one group of islands is named.
