This is not you typical farm-to-table, forest-to-table or boat-to-table here. What you will find in front of you on this journey will appeal to all of your senses. From the beauty of the scenery surrounding you to the memorable cuisine of the region, from the unforgettable hospitality of the locals to the majestic wildlife of the sounds, you may just feel like a week is simply not enough.

We are excited to show you and a small group of like-minded guests one of North America's greatest treasures by land, sea and sky.

Highlights

Two Countries. Bountiful Beauty

To further our exploration of North America, Art In Voyage invites you to experience Canada and the Pacific Northwestern corner of the United States with a focus on local cuisine and gorgeous coastal landscapes. We will explore Victoria, Vancouver, the San Juan Islands, and the Seattle area in search of fresh seafood, local harvests and great wine.

By Land, Sea and Sky

To diversify your experience, we will take to the skies for scenic flights; boats for whale watching and coastal views, and drives on picturesque road to see and taste all that the area has to offer.

Flexibility is key

While we have an exciting itinerary, guests interested in doing so will be able to be pampered at one of our favorite local spa, and for couples interested in doing so, romantic wine picnics may be arranged on days at leisure. In short, need a day off from us (or two), our team will be delighted to assist in setting you up for your very own exclusive experience.

Active guests welcome

Surrounded by breathtaking scenery, the area offers more than 100 biking and hiking trails, across vineyards, woods, mountains and valleys. Guests looking to escape some of the food & wine adventures with a morning hike, or an afternoon horseback riding experience will feel right at home in Washington, and on our journey.
