This brand-new experience combines our popular Western USA Trek program with Pacific Northwest Trek, giving teens the chance to see nearly the entire West Coast of the United States! Once we land in Arizona, teens will discover natural landmarks that date back millions of years as they head west. We’ll explore the breathtaking beaches and coastal cities of California as we snake our way up the Pacific Coast, then take our time reveling in the beauty of Vancouver, British Columbia. Our mega-adventure ends with a trip to Seattle, Washington, back in the U.S.
IS IT RIGHT FOR ME? While Pacific Coast Trek is designed for active teens, the program is appropriate for most. Pacific Coast Trek includes extensive hiking components during the itinerary. Do not worry about needing to be super outdoorsy to enjoy yourself. For example, although hiking in Zion National Park is a more extensive hike that includes steep inclines, you will not need to carry a heavy backpack along the way. The outdoors activities on Pacific Coast Trek are only meant to complement overall touring (most of which is still bus-based). The ultimate aim of Pacific Coast Trek is to provide teens with a more active way to experience USA through the beauty of its terrain. See you on the trails!
