The ocean backcloth is the Olympic Peninsula mountains and beautiful islands where whale watching and boating or kayaking experiences await. Washington state has over 800 wineries offering tasting experiences, three national parks (Mt. Rainier/Olympic Peninsula/North Cascades), mountain ranges and rainforests of bearded mossy, massive girthed trees. It’s a state of spectacular contrasts and great fly-drive holidays with a choice of direct non-stop daily flights into Seattle’s SeaTac International airport.
