Washington State Breathtaking beauty and fun experiences sum up this Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon & Washington Wine Country tour through Washington, Idaho, and Montana. Your tour begins and ends in Seattle with overnights along the way in Whitefish in Montana; Coeur d'Alene and Lewiston in Idaho; and Spokane and the Washington Wine Country in Washington.

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.
