Your Northern California Vacation begins as you are welcomed aboard your deluxe coach in Edmonton.  Meet your travel companions as you travel south via Red Deer to Calgary.  Lethbridge passengers boarding the coach in Fort Macleod will be dropped off in Lethbridge on the return trip.  Continue to Cranbrook, BC for overnight at the St. Eugene Golf Resort & Casino.

Cross the Canadian/American border and travel through the states of Idaho and Washington today.   Cross the mighty Columbia River and travel a short distance to The Dalles, Oregon for overnight at the Fairfield Inn.


The Dalles to Crescent City

Continue through the state of Oregon.  Enter the Golden State of California and travel through the REDWOOD NATIONAL PARK where the trees are so tall the sun seldom hits the ground.  Overnight at Ocean View Inn in Crescent City.


Crescent City to Ukiah

What a day is in store for you! Delight in the majesty of the giant redwoods as you travel along the AVENUE OF THE GIANTS and the HUMBOLDT REDWOODS STATE PARK. These trees are 2,000 years old and tower as high as 360 feet.  Enjoy a delicious PICNIC LUNCH in the heart of the redwoods.  Overnight in Ukiah, the centre of a flourishing wine region.


Ukiah to San Francisco

(2 nights):  Never-ending vineyards are the backdrop for a magnificent day.  Arrive in San Francisco in time for lunch and browsing on PIER 39. Conclude your afternoon with a spectacular San Francisco BAY CRUISE.  Arrive at your hotel for a two-night stay at the Hotel Riu Plaza Fisherman’s Wharf.  Your hotel is conveniently located within walking distance to Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39 and the Cable Car Lines.

Tonight your stay is at the centrally located Circus Circus Hotel, connected by a skywalk to the Eldorado and Silver Legacy Resort Casinos. These three casino resort hotels make up “The Row”.
