Cycling the San Juan Islands
From quiet pebble beaches to blossoming meadows, our San Juan Island cycling vacation is a peaceful retreat from busy everyday life.
A scenic ferry ride from Washington's Fidalgo Island brings us to the maritime world of the San Juans. Here we bike on serene island roads, navigating around harbors, inlets, bays, and rolling, green mountains. We cycle through colorful tulip nurseries and old sheep farms. We visit artist colonies and taste of fresh seafood cuisine. In the fall, we can pick our fill of wild berries from just about anywhere along the way. A half-day's ride takes us to the top of Mt. Constitution, where we climb up an old stone fort's princess tower for a bird's-eye view of the entire San Juan Island chain, the Pacific Ocean, Puget Sound, Olympic National Park, and Cascade mountain range! The San Juans are also a natural haven for wildlife. We cycle, swim, and kayak in the natural habitats of great blue herons, black-tailed deer, cormorants, seals, sea otters, and king fishers. We watch for dolphins and orca whales as we ferry through the island channels, where whale-season sightings are guaranteed!
We encourage you very strongly to purchase travel insurance to protect against extenuating circumstances such as illness and injury - believe us, they do come up! We have a special arrangement with TravelGuard insurance so that you may purchase reasonably-priced travel insurance at the same time you place your tour reservation.

Multi-day tours only: If you would like to change to a different tour or departure date after signing up, we will be happy to transfer you on a space available basis up until 45 days prior to your tour. Please provide your transfer request in writing - email is sufficient. Please note, a $25 transfer fee will be deducted from your previous payments for each transfer, and if you later choose to cancel your tour, the cancellation deadlines will apply to the date of the originally scheduled tour. Does not apply to Â½ and full day tours in Las Vegas or Moab.
Escape confirms tours 30 days prior to tour departure; prior to this time, tours may be cancelled due to low enrollment. After your tour is confirmed, it will not be cancelled for low- enrollment, but in rare cases may be cancelled due to weather, government intervention, unsafe trail conditions, or any other reason that would affect the quality of the schedule tour or the safety of its participants. If we are forced to cancel your tour, we will provide a 100% refund and work to add you to another trip that works for you. If you need to cancel your multiday tour for any reason, your request must be in writing - email is sufficient (no phone cancellations will be accepted).
We advise you to avoid non-refundable flights and other travel arrangements, and are not responsible for the costs of such arrangement in the event your tour is canceled. The travel insurance offered in conjunction with our tours covers the cost of your tour, but does not cover additional costs such as travel to and from your tour departure location, and hotel stays prior to or following your tour. Please consider purchasing additional insurance coverage if you have non-refundable travel arrangements.
