Highlights

Two Countries, Bountiful Beauty

Art In Voyage invites you to experience Canada and the Pacific Northwestern corner of the United States, where you will enjoy the local cuisine and sweeping coastal landscapes. We explore Victoria, Vancouver, the San Juan Islands, and Seattle, where we source the freshest seafood, artisanal produce, and excellent wine.

By Land, Sea and Sky

To diversify your experience, we take to the skies for surreal views, to water for whale watching amid coastal scenes, and land for picturesque drives, so as to ensure that we taste it all. Whether you are a nature lover or a city lover, we can assure you that there will be plenty to gush over in the breathtaking Pacific Northwest.

Flexibility is Key

While our itinerary is exciting, guests will have ample opportunity to relax, unwind, or even visit our favorite local spas for some pampering. For interested couples, romantic wine picnics can be arranged on leisure days. Our team will be delighted to assist in arranging exclusive experiences that our itinerary may inspire along the way.

Active Guests Welcome

For nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, Pacific Northwest is a dream come true, boasting over 100 biking and hiking trails, across an array of breathtaking landscapes. Interested guests can embark on a light morning hike, an afternoon of horseback riding, or a thrilling rafting adventure. Do as much, or as little, as you wish!
