A Word from our Clients
One of the best experiences of my life. Everything was perfect - I was so impressed and amazed at how smoothly the trip was a priceless vacation. 
Heather C.

Great tour! This trip was a first bicycling trip for my husband and I together. His skills are much greater than mine, but this trip's cycling routes were perfect for us. It was a great marriage of what I wanted and what my cycling expert husband wanted.

Upscale, well-supported trip with great guides and wonderful accommodations. The guides took all bikers in stride - plus one non-rider tag-along. 
Judy P.

We can’t think of a better way to have seen the San Juan Islands and appreciate the thought you have put into non-biking activities to really showcase what is special about them.
Keith and Lynn R.

We have done 3 trips with Bicycle Adventures (as well as trips with other companies) and we will always consider Bicycle Adventures first. The destinations, cycling, lodging, food and guides are the best in the business!

San Juan Islands 6 Day Bike Tour | Bicycle Adventures

Bike pastoral roads. Cruise beside sparkling waters. Hike through rich old-growth forest. Spend a half-day kayaking Roche Harbor's placid waters with a naturalist/guide. Our most popular tour of Washington's San Juan Islands highlights the very best of life on the Salish Sea. Top it off with sumptuous lodging and fresh island cuisine. Conde Nast Traveler named Friday Harbor (where you'll spend a good bit of time) one of the Most Beautiful Towns in America. And Fodor's Travel Guide trumpets, "You won't find a nicer place to ride than these islands in the Pacific Northwest's Puget Sound." 

*NEW for 2017: At the end of your tour, board a chartered float plane for a spectacular flight back to Seattle (included with trip.)

**Note: The September 3 tour includes admission to the Lakedale Music Festival. 

Show All

Meet in Seattle, Washington. Shuttle north to Anacortes. Hop aboard a Washington State Ferry to sail away to San Juan Island. Ride to Cattle Point and Friday Harbor, then to Lakedale Resort at Three Lakes, home for the next 3 nights.

Meet us in Seattle for a complimentary van shuttle north to Anacortes, on Fidalgo Island. After a bike fitting, board a ferry to cruise the Salish Sea to Friday Harbor, San Juan Island. Ride to Cattle Point, where you're greeted by incredible views of Lopez Island, San Juan Island, Mt. Constitution and other places you'll explore this week. Head back to Friday Harbor to browse its shops, art galleries and whale museum. Tonight, stay at idyllic Lakedale Resort at Three Lakes, home for the next three nights. The Fine Living Channel hailed Lakedale as one of the '10 Most Romantic Hotels in the World.' 


Bike to Pelindaba Lavender Farm and historic Lime Kiln State Park, one of the country's best whale-watching spots.

This morning, bicycle the serene shores of San Juan Island, enjoying open farmland and marine vistas from quiet country roads. Visit English Camp, a national historic park that was once part of the “Pig War” between England and the United States, and Lime Kiln State Park, one of the best orca ('killer') whale watching spots in the country. Tour the heavenly-scented fields at Pelindaba Lavender Farm. Take your pick between 3 different routes back to Lakedale Lodge. 


Kayak from Roche Harbor. Hike Mt. Young.

Kayak the calm waters of Puget Sound and the Salish Sea this morning. A local sea kayaking outfitter provides two-person 'yaks, guides and instruction. Spend the morning watching and learning about the abundant bird and marine life along the rocky, tree-lined shore. Wander the tiny coastal village of Roche Harbor. This afternoon, swim in one of Lakedale's three lakes, relax at the inn or hike nearby Mt. Young to relish commanding views of the islands. 


Ferry to Orcas Island. Ride to Moran State Park. Hike or bike to the spectacular summit of Mt. Constitution, highest point in the islands. Catch a ferry to Lopez Island

Take another short Washington State Ferry cruise to Orcas Island, largest of the San Juans. Ride to Eastsound, explore the town and have lunch. Back on the bicycle, pedal to Moran State Park and Cascade Lake. Hike a forested trail up to the summit of Mt. Constitution, highest viewpoint in the islands. Prefer to ride? Challenge the switchbacks on the road to the top of ‘Mt. C' instead of hiking the trail. It's one for the books! Either way, your reward at the top is a marvelous view of the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges and the emerald archipelago flung wide below. Ferry to Lopez Island and the Edenwild Inn, home for the next two nights. 


Ride to Spencer Spit State Park, Agate Beach County Park and Shark Reef Sanctuary.

Explore Lopez Island today. Lopez is the flattest, most rural and least populated of the three main San Juan Islands. It’s also considered the 'bicyclist’s island' for its quiet roads, gentle terrain, spectacular marine vistas, and friendly residents who wave as you bicycle past. Ride clockwise around the island, starting with Spencer Spit State Park, then south to Agate Beach. Stroll out to Iceberg Point for lunch at the 7th Parallel. Check out the views of the Olympic Mountains and many of the places you've explored this week. Ride east to Watmaugh Bay (watch for seals!) Then head north again to the Edenwild.


Enjoy a relaxing morning at the Edenwild. Ride to Fisherman Bay for a last sea-level look at the islands. Then board a chartered plane for a spectacular flight back to Seattle.

Enjoy a relaxing morning and breakfast at the Edenwild. Bicycle the 'Free Willy' ride, out to Fisherman Bay, then back to the Edenwild for lunch in the village. Hop aboard a chartered float plane for a glorious return flight over the islands and back to Seattle.

Traveling Alone?

Single Room

As an optional extra, a person traveling solo on any inn-to-inn trip may reserve a room for his or her exclusive use. This will guarantee you a private room and private bath every night. Unlike other tour companies, if you're willing to share a room, there is no extra charge for coming solo, no matter when you sign up for the tour - even if you wind up with a private room by default.
