Island Adventurer: Seattle To The San Juan Islands & Victoria

Start in Seattle and travel to both San Juan Island and Vancouver Island with this Pacific Northwest vacation package. First, stop in the San Juan Islands and relax by the water on these quiet forested islands, perfect for biking and resting while taking in the scenic views.
