The American Alps

Come and join us for a loop through the fabulous and remote North Cascades of Washington State, otherwise known as “ The American Alps.” Enjoy more than just mountains, meadows and waterfalls – there’s as much or more diversity of scenery and terrain on this tour than most of our other 6-days tours. Try on some cowboy boots while you kick around the “Old West” town of Winthrop, then change into lederhosen for a walk through the Bavarian-themed town of Leavenworth. Pedal from the west side rain forest through rugged peaks and passes. Descend through Ponderosa pine forest to the sagebrush desert on the east-side of the Cascades. Finish the week with a ride straight through the mountains (literally). Our route back to Seattle concludes on a trail that takes you beneath the mountain on an old railroad tunnel over 2 miles long. Celebrate an amazing week lunch at the iconic Snoqualmie Falls Overlook.
