A Bavarian Christmas in Leavenworth


A half million twinkling lights transform Leavenworth, WA into the “Village of Lights.” The Christmas spirit is on full display in the shop windows, so grab a stein of mulled cider and search for that perfect gift for a friend… or yourself! From upscale to down-home, big city to charming small towns, there is something to be enjoyed by all!

Daily Itinerary

Day 1

Start with an included shopping spree at Post Alley, Seattle’s hidden gem with many unique shops. Take some time to browse famed Pike Place Market also. Lunch is at Ivar’s Salmon House, a Pacific Northwest favorite. Make your way by motorcoach through the stunning scenery of the Cascade Mountains arriving in Leavenworth at dusk just as the lights come on over the village. Dinner with musical accompaniment is enjoyed at your hotel. Bavarian Lodge – 3 nights (L,D)

Day 2

Spend a morning in quaint Cashmere, WA touring and tasting at Aplets & Cotlets, with a stop at a quirky family-owned country store. They have lots of tasty treats and oddball items you never knew you needed! The afternoon is yours to explore the village and enjoy lunch on your own. Grab your beer and “Prost” over a Bavarian dinner of schnitzel and bratwursts before a relaxing evening of music, a harp concert featuring the season’s classics. (FB,D)

Day 3

At a working reindeer farm, learn about and meet the unofficial ambassadors of the season. Sing along as “O’er the fields we go in a one-horse open sleigh!” It’s really a two-horse sleigh, but who’s counting? Lunch is served at a mountain resort with beautiful views. Keep your camera handy! Back in town, enjoy dinner on your own, make one last pass through the shops and, hot cider in hand, stroll through the dazzling lights. (FB,L)

Day 4

En route back to Seattle make a picture stop at Snoqualmie Falls. Lunch is at a fun local joint that features amazing homemade root beer made with all natural ingredients. Your flight from Seattle returns you home in the evening. (FB,L)
