Globus Discover Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon & Washington Wine Country with Alaska Cruise(NSI)

17 days from Seattle to Seattle 
Breathtaking beauty and fun experiences sum up this Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon & Washington Wine Country tour with an Alaska cruise. Your tour begins and ends in Seattle with overnights along the way in Washington Wine Country, Lewiston, Coeur d’Alene, and Spokane.

A tour highlight is stunning Glacier National Park with its pristine forests, rugged mountains, alpine meadows, and gorgeous lakes. You’ll board a vintage 1930s red Jammer bus and drive along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, one of North America’s most spectacular roadways. Hugging the mountainside, you’ll witness breathtaking scenery along the way. Words and photos cannot capture the beauty—you must witness it in person!

More scenic beauty awaits you in Coeur d’Alene, where you’ll enjoy a cruise on the picturesque lake; in Mount Rainier National Park, where you’ll witness breathtaking views of its 14,000-foot peak; and in Hells Canyon, North America’s deepest river gorge. With more than 200,000 acres of high mountain peaks, ominous canyon rim-rocks, breathtaking vistas, and incredible wildlife, Hells Canyon is nothing short of spectacular! Here, you’ll enjoy a cruise as well as a BBQ lunch along the river—a special experience offered by Globus. But that’s not all…you’ll also witness breathtaking scenery on your 7-night Alaska cruise. Marvel at the slabs of ice breaking off into the sea and enjoy visits to Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, and Victoria.

Other unique experiences Globus offers on this Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon & Washington Wine Country tour are a tour and tasting at a winery in Washington’s Wine Country and a cowboy sing-along and old-fashioned ranch BBQ in Whitefish.

This is just a sampling of the many highlights offered on this tour through Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon and Washington’s Wine Country—with an Alaska cruise.
