‘We are all travellers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend’
Robert Louis Stevenson, Novelist 1850-1894
Join in a small group tour around the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the US and sample some of the fantastic food, wine and - very importantly - beer that is produced by a wide range of independent brewers. Start in cosmopolitan Seattle, home of Boeing and Microsoft, before heading down through Washington State. See stunning natural beauty in the form of Mount Rainier before entering Oregon for some more wonderful food and drink around Portland. See Multnomah Falls on the Columbia River Gorge as you head to Bend, Oregon. More natural beauty accompanies further tasty brews as you visit Crater Lake and Ashland before heading back north. Visit the city of Eugene and stunning coastal setting of Cannon Beach before ending the tour back in Seattle for the flight home. All in all, a great taste of this corner of the country!
Breathe in the wondrous, pristine landscapes of New Zealand. Board the famous TranzAlpine train, fly over the mighty Franz Josef Glacier and savour a short cruise on the majestic Milford Sound. Then, step it up a notch jet boating and white-water rafting in the adrenalin pumping adventure capital of Queenstown. Moving northwards to Rotorua, let yourself melt away in the bubbling mud pools and thermal springs, before enjoying a relaxing jaunt in the turquoise waters of the Bay of Islands.
