Pacific Coastal Treasures Total Solar Eclipse
It’s easy to create a long list of reasons to explore the Pacific Northwest, starting with some of the most stunning coastal scenery on the continent— or indeed any continent. Venturing north from Seattle on a route linking historic port towns, you pass through a string of spectacular state and national parks set beside the Pacific, where rugged mountain slopes descend through pristine forest to the sea.
What could you possibly add to make your journey even more memorable? How about experiencing the first North American total solar eclipse in nearly three decades — and the first visible from the contiguous states since 1979 — from a carefully selected site in the Oregon wilderness?
Join TravelQuest in the summer of 2017 for an incomparable Pacific Northwest eclipse adventure that includes cruising among the San Juan Islands, crossing into Canada to visit the charming city of Victoria, and then a leisurely loop back southward, combining artsy Port Angeles with the unique rainforest ecosystem of Olympic National Park.
On eclipse day — Monday, August 21, 2017 — head out in the early morning to experience 2 minutes and 2 seconds of totality with some of the best viewing prospects along the entire continental track. It’s the crowning moment in a journey that weaves together three fascinating cities — Portland, Victoria, and Seattle — with total immersion in natural beauty as you hike forest trails, stroll through Pacific spray and ultimately stand awestruck in the shadow of the Moon.
