The San Juan Islands in the state of Washington provide exciting opportunities for great adventure trips. With different islands as your playground, there are absolutely no dull moments. The three islands – Orcas Island, San Juan Island and Lopez Island offer very different island experiences.
San Juan Island
When you visit San Juan Island, you will know why so many residents fell in love with this place. You can leisurely walk around the island to visit shops, museums and cafés. With many delightful things that can fill your day, everything is within walking distance. Hike to the Lime Kiln Point State Park and allot some time for whale watching.
Kayaking around Orcas Island will have you looking out for the whales (as the name implies) so be ready to take plenty of photos of these magnificent creatures. Try hiking to the island’s highest peak, Mount Constitution, to take in the 360 degree view of the island. Walk around the town of Eastsound, visit the farmer’s market and enjoy the splendid sounds of live musical performances.
Cycling tours around Lopez Island prepare you for a sumptuous seafood meal and wine tasting at the local winery. You will feel right at home in this place as locals greet visitors with warm, friendly smiles. The birds visiting the island make this place the ideal locale for bird watching with many bald eagles spotted often visiting the area. Kayaking allows travelers to fully discover the unspoiled wonders of nature in this part of the country.
