    Itinerary
    DAY 1 - 4 SEATTLE

    Your journey begins with three nights in Seattle, the capital of Washington state. Seattle is a unique city that is surrounded by water, has an impressive skyline, and yet somehow also has beautiful mountain ranges looming in the background.
    Begin your day by visiting downtown and the city’s trademark Space Needle. From here you can get acquainted with the city’s layout from above – 184.4 meter up. You can reach the top in 41 seconds with lifts running on the outside of the tower, travelling 4.5 meters per second.
    If you are afraid of heights, you can acquaint yourself with the city from below, on Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour. On this tour you will learn about the city’s history, including The Great Seattle Fire, which burned the city down in 1829. This walking tour takes place underground in the old streets that were once street level. After the great fire, Seattle was rebuilt on top of the old streets.

    Next stop is Pike Place Market, where the first Starbucks is located. Starbucks is the most widely recognized coffee chain in the world, and you get to visit the place where it all started in 1971. Order yourself a cup of the original roast, Pike Place Roast, and have a seat on one of the original pieces of furniture from when the coffee shop first opened. Pike Place Market is much more than just the location of the first Starbucks – it is the city’s hub for fresh, locally grown produce, and is Seattle’s most iconic attraction. It was created in 1907 to connect the farmers and citizens of the city, and is now one of America’s oldest farmer’s markets.
    Before leaving the market, go past The Market Theater Gum Wall, a gross and fun tourist attraction. The Gum Wall is a stone wall, which is covered by used chewing gum – in some places more than a centimeter thick.
    Seattle is filled with fun and interesting museums, such as the Living Computer Museum, where you can learn about the evolution of devices from massive supercomputers to iPhones. Or you can go drink a classic soda pop and play some pinball on one of the over 50 pinball machines at the Seattle Pinball Museum.

    DAY 4 - 6: OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK

    (82 miles – a 2 hour-and-30-minute drive)
    The majestic mountains of Olympic National Park greet the sea in Port Angeles. The Harbor in Port Angeles is the perfect place to begin your whale watching tour! The Whale Watching Company guarantees whale sightings on every whale watch tour from May through November. You will have the chance to see Orcas, Humpbacks, Grays, and even Killer Whales.

    In Port Angeles you can also find the Washington Lavender Farm, an oceanfront farm where you can indulge your senses in the vast fields of lavender. The rich soil of the area is perfect for growing lavender, and if you visit Port Angeles in July, you can attend the Washington Lavender Festival and see all of the products that this wonderful flower can be made into.

    DAY 6 - 8: PORTLAND

    (230 miles – a 4 hour-and-10-minute drive)
    After some relaxing time in nature, it’s on to the next big city. Portland is the capital city of Oregon, and their unofficial slogan is “Keep Portland Weird.” Let’s get weird and see what Portland has to offer.

    Portland’s skyline is unique compared to other American cities, in that it is not filled with large skyscrapers. Inspired by European cities, it has a quaint downtown area which is friendly to pedestrians, cyclists, and trams. Wander out of downtown and across one of the 12 bridges dividing the West and East sides of the city. The bridges stretch over the Willamette River, which runs through the center of Portland. Each bridge is unique, so find your favorite!

    If you fancy some reading, or just want to visit the largest used bookstore in the world, head on over to Powell’s City of Books. They will provide you with a map to navigate your way through most successful bookshops in the nation, which covers an entire city block.

    You might even find a good book for the flight home! Portland is home to 61 brewing companies, and you will never run dry of refreshing craft beer in this city! If you happen to be in Portland in July, don’t miss the Portland Craft Beer Festival or the Oregon Brewfest. The city of Portland is known for its counterculture and liberal political views, as well as it’s gourmet doughnuts. Voodoo Doughnut is widely known for its crazy and unique doughnuts, some of which include bacon and other breakfast bits. Don’t forget to try their signature doughnut, the Voodoo Doll.

    The area around Portland is surrounded by stunning waterfalls, all within a 1.5-hour drive. Visit the Columbia River George for views of a spectacular canyon as well as several different waterfalls, including Multnomah Falls, the highest waterfall in the entire state of Oregon. In front of the waterfall is Benson Footbridge, where you can stand and watch the waterfall up close form the middle of the upper and lower half.

    DAY 8 – 10: CRATER LAKE

    (246 miles – a 4 hour-and-23-minute drive)
    Your next stop is Crater Lake, America’s deepest lake. The lake is 655 meters deep and is known for its very clear, blue water. There are no rivers or other lakes connecting to Crater Lake, which helps to keep the water clear and blue. All the water in the lake comes from its rainwater or melted snow, and it snows many months out of the year.

    Crater Lake offers boat trips to the two islands, an assortment of hikes, and a 33-mile scenic drive around the whole lake. The Cascade Rocky Mountain range surrounding the lake is covered in a lush green forest, but with plenty of open space for skiing in the winter, when the area gets large amounts of snowfall.

    DAY 10 - 11: CRESCENT CITY

    (195 miles – a 3 hour-and-50-minute drive)
    Your first stop in California is Crescent City, named for its crescent-shaped stretch of beach. On your way out of Oregon, you will drive through Grant Pass, where you can stop by the original Dutch Bros. Coffee stand and grab some fuel for the road.

    Twenty minutes South of Crescent City is the exciting Trees of Mystery experience. This is a gondola ride through tree tops of the Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, where you will experience unparalleled views as you breathe in the scent of Northern California. These giant, magnificent trees are held dear to the hearts of Californians, and you will get to see them up close and personal.

    Trees of Mystery is also known for the 15-meter high statue of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox, which can be seen from the highway. In this area you can also find one of the last standing redwood trees that has been tunneled through so that you can drive through it. Imagine the exciting experience of driving through a tree!

    DAY 11 - 12: FERNDALE - REDWOOD NATIONAL PARK

    (104 miles – a 2-hour drive)
    Next, you’re off to Ferndale, one of America’s prettiest towns and the gateway to California’s Lost Coast. Although Ferndale is an old Danish town, which many Danes emigrated to in the 1800 and 1900s, it does not appear Danish at all. Nicknamed “The Victorian Village”, the city is home to a well-preserved Victorian-era main street. Here you can explore antique stores, art galleries, and specialty shops.  Take a walk over to Russ Park, Ferndale’s bird sanctuary, which is home to over 100 types of birds.Despite its location near two redwood forests, Russ Park is a Sitka Spruce forest, which is rarer than Redwoods. Sitka spruce fills most of the forest, with a few Douglass firs and redwoods that have been planted. You might choose to stay in The Gingerbread Mansion Inn, the city’s oldest house, which is built in an authentic Victorian style. The house is, as the name suggests, gingerbread-themed. Gingerbread-themed does not mean tacky, as this inn is filled with many beautiful details.

    DAY 12 – 14: GARBERVILLE – REDWOOD NATIONAL PARK

    (91 km/57 miles – 1:00 timmars bilkörning)
    Use Gaberville as your base to enjoy yet another gorgeous redwood forest. Just 20 minutes before you arrive in Gaberville you will pass through the Humboldt Redwoods State Park. If you missed the chance to drive through the redwood tree near Crescent City, or simply want to relive the experience, then stop off in Meyers Flat on your way to Gabersville. There is yet another redwood tree that you can drive through, right off Highway 101.

    This tree is only one of many captivating redwood trees in the area. Meyers Flat is a town along the Avenue of The Giants drive, which is a 31-mile long route through the 51,222 acres of redwood groves. Along the route, you will also see the Immortal Tree – a tree which has survived flooding, forest fires, and lightning strikes, but has survived it all.

    DAY 14 – 17: SAN FRANCISCO

    (204 miles – a 3 hour-and-40-minute drive)
    Last, but certainly not least, is San Francisco. On your way here, you will drive through the rolling vineyards of Sonoma County, and if you take an hour detour you can see the famous Napa Valley.

    Drive over the Golden Gate bridge, the city’s trademark, on your way into San Francisco. The bridge is an engineering marvel, and one that you don’t want to miss. Upon arriving in San Francisco, we recommend returning the rental car, to avoid the confusing one-way streets and high parking fees. Not to worry, San Francisco has a very extensive public transportation system, including the world’s last manually operated cable car system. Hop on a historic cable car, painted in the original colors from the 1920s and 1930s, and ride it to many of San Francisco’s attractions.

    San Francisco is six miles square, and packed with plenty to see. Discover the city’s colorful Castro neighborhood, the hippie neighborhood Haight-Ashbury, Chinatown, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, and Pier-39. Begin your day at Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, where you can see – and hear –  sea lions lie down and soak up the sun.

    Then make your way to the neighborhood of Haight-Ashbury, which is filled with history, and is the birthplace of America’s counter-culture and the hippie movement of the 1960s. Grab an ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s and walk along Haight Street to Golden Gate Park and the famous Hippie Hill. Don’t forget the famous prison island, Alcatraz, where you take a ferry to visit the prison’s old cells, canteen and more. A completely underrated destination in San Francisco is the City Hall building. This building has an impressively detailed interior, and is one of the finest examples of French Renaissance architecture in the America. When you stand in the middle and look up at the striking dome, you will experience a feeling of awe.

    If you’re looking to have a nice drink after your long day of exploring San Francisco, then head to The View, a cocktail lounge and bar on the top floor of the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. This lounge offers a breathtaking view of the city, especially at night when the lights are twinkling in the buzzing city.
