If you’ve booked yourself on an Alaska Cruise and your itinerary includes a day trip to Seattle, you’ll probably find on your excursion to the Emerald city that one day is not nearly enough! Home of the Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, and the Puget Sound. Famously framed by the scenic backdrop of Mt. Rainier and the snow-dusted Cascade Mountains, Seattle is alive with culture, history, cuisine, and nature. To be experienced to its fullest, just like fine wine, Seattle and Washington state are most enjoyable when savored.
Washington state itself is an area to behold. It is truly gifted with stunningly diverse ecological and geographical landscapes, numerous national landmarks especially those of maritime significance, and a highly developed and bountiful wine industry (second only behind California in the production of wine). With rolling vineyards and vivid landscapes set amongst serene waterways, it’s not an area that can simply be seen in a few hours. That’s why you may be interested in one of our finely curated tours that perfectly compliments your pre-cruise or post-cruise extension. Look no further if you are on the hunt for some unforgettable things to do in Seattle before or after an Alaska cruise.

Why not try our popular 5-day NW Wine & Rail Tour and take a journey straight to the heart of Eastern Washington and Wine Country? See the sun-splashed alpine views as you stroll around the charming Bavarian village of Leavenworth, Washington and witness the raw and powerful beauty of the Columbia River as it churns by. This tour is a tremendous opportunity to learn about the pioneer history of Oregon and to wander the streets of the historic Walla Walla, our founder's hometown - somewhere we love to share expertise on!
If you fall in love with Walla Walla as many do, we offer a 3-day Walla Walla Wine Tour from Portland, so feel free to join us as we taste much of the rich culture and exceptional wine this area is famed for.
Another option is to extend your pre-cruise or post-cruise time even further with our 5-day Northwest Wine & Rail Tour or our 7-day Northwest Explorer with Rail tour.
