Mt. Baker "Climb to the Top" Tour
A remarkable drive along pastoral back roads that lead to a breathtaking Alpine climb to road’s end at Artist’s Point. Exquisite views, considered some of the best in North America, are not to be missed! The tour winds back down the mountain for an Italian lunch at Milano's in the quaint town of Glacier, then proceeds through bucolic farmlands for a stop in Lynden, and ends at the luxurious Semiahmoo Resort and Spa. The resort is situated on Birch Bay with views to the San Juan Islands and Canada.
The morning tour route follows nearly 100 miles of back roads with a brief rest stop in Ajax. Upon reaching Artist’s Point members may enjoy the views at the overlook or take a short hike to gain even better views onto the mountains, glacier, and lakes.
Lunch will be at Milano’s Restaurant, a great little Italian restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining in the town of Glacier.
The tour ends in at the Semiahmoo Resort and Spa for an overnight stay and waterside dinner. The Resort offers a multitude of leisure activities on land and water. Learn more at www. semiahmoo.com.
