Vacation Overview

Breathtaking beauty and fun experiences sum up this Glacier National Park, Hells Canyon & Washington Wine Country tour through Washington, Idaho, and Montana. Your tour begins and ends in Seattle with overnights along the way in Whitefish in Montana; Coeur d'Alene and Lewiston in Idaho; and Spokane and the Washington Wine Country in Washington.

A tour highlight is stunning Glacier National Park with its pristine forests, rugged mountains, alpine meadows, and gorgeous lakes. You’ll board a vintage 1930s red Jammer bus and drive along the Going-to-the-Sun Road, one of North America’s most spectacular roadways. Hugging the mountainside, you’ll witness breathtaking scenery along the way. Words and photos cannot capture the beauty—you must witness it in person!

More scenic beauty awaits you in Coeur d’Alene, where you’ll enjoy a cruise on the picturesque lake, and in Mount Rainier National Park, where you’ll witness breathtaking views of its 14,000-foot peak. But that’s not all…Hells Canyon is home to North America’s deepest river gorge. With more than 200,000 acres of high mountain peaks, ominous canyon rim-rocks, breathtaking vistas, and incredible wildlife, Hells Canyon is nothing short of spectacular! Here, you’ll enjoy a cruise as well as a BBQ lunch along the river—a special experience offered by Globus.

AL LEPORE

Years of Experience: 21 years

After more than two decades in the industry, I've been fortunate to see all aspects of touring by coach. My experiences as a tour director have proven to be my most rewarding in terms of a career. I particularly enjoy showing off America's treasures in our National Parks. I'd love to share our wonderful national parks and help you "find your park" as we travel this great land. When I am not guiding, I enjoy sports and spending time with my friends and family.
