Outdoor Adventures + An Urban Retreat


Rent a Vintage Volkswagen Bus

Inquire Now

It’s all about balance here in the Pacific Northwest—where folks tend to work hard/play hard, and rainy mornings often morph into sun-streaked afternoons. You can’t visit this thriving town without also diving into the natural playground that awaits just beyond city limits. And thanks to our new van-to-glam Seattle vacation package, we’ve created an easy roadmap to explore the best of all worlds. After life on the road, luxury awaits.

Step one: Find adventure during any month of the year. Rent one of PacWesty’s beautifully maintained Volkswagen Vanagons, and get one of the many add-ons like a Goal Zero portable power station and/or solar panel, rooftop luggage skybox or bike racks. Whether you’ve pre-planned your journey or vote for a real-time adventure, we promise the Northwest’s stunning beauty will dazzle and delight. For more details on PacWesty’s vans and availability, click here.

Although Pacwesty requires a five-night minimum in peak season, our guests’ minimum is just three. Seeking expert guides along the way? (Think excursions from fly fishing to surfing.) PacWesty happily connects you to enthusiastic Adventure Coordinators.

Step two: Relax + recharge. Steer your home-on-wheels back toward downtown Seattle, where an urban sanctuary awaits at Hotel Vintage Seattle. We’ve arranged for your van to be collected from the hotel, so you can settle directly into the luxurious comfort of your room. (Enjoy an upgrade and special Seattle amenity, too.)

Recommended Destinations:

  • Olympic National Park
  • Mount Rainier
  • Coastal towns like Long Beach, Washington, and Astoria, Oregon
  • Cannon Beach, Oregon

On the Road Must-Haves

  • A camera and/or iPhone, ready to snap (and tag) those sensational PNW scenes
  • A killer playlist to set the mood (tune into KEXP for guaranteed music magic)
  • Rain gear, but also bring sunglasses because, you’re in the Northwest now…
  • Outdoors-ready Seattle souvenirs like MiiR camping cups or GRAYL water purifier bottles
  • Local snacks—We’d start with Theo Chocolate, Beecher’s Curds, Brew Dr. Kombucha and fresh produce collected from Pike Place Market
  • They’re also happy to assist with the rentals of bikes, kayaks, paddle boards and fishing gear

A Blogger’s Perspective

Washingtonian-turned-Californian blogger Brittney (of The Blondes Eye View ) recently returned to her PNW roots and let us come along for the ride. Check out her magical #VanLife experience that began in the fantastical forest and ended in some dreamy Kimpton digs in downtown Seattle.
