When we talk about the Emerald circle photography tours in the USA, it does have a mystical appeal. The tour is extraordinary as it covers the greener parts of the Northwestern US, continues through Washington State and Oregon, with a quick stop at Northern California to capture the majestic redwoods in all their glory. With an itinerary that spans over 16 days, this one-of-a-kind tour takes you through some of the finest landscapes at a gentle pace. Apart from visiting the main venues, you will also get an opportunity to capture some of the most impressive views.

The nature of the photo tour is such that you have to rely on professional guidance. It helps if you have someone who has a great deal of knowledge and knows about all the beautiful and undiscovered places. For a tour that is part adventure and part venturing into the unknown, it will indeed live up to your expectation.

A Brief Overview of the Emerald Circle Photo Tour Itinerary

The 16-day adventure begins in Portland, Oregon, where the group assembles to journey north towards Mount Rainer National Park and some last-day photography of the Icon of the Cascades. After staying the night at a select motel, you will be heading towards the Columbia River Gorge and stay for the night. After a good night’s sleep, you will get an opportunity to photograph some of the most pristine waterfalls in the morning.

In the days to follow, you will follow a routine of photographing wherein you will shoot all day, taking a break for the night. On your way towards Southern Oregon, you will enjoy the pine-scented valleys of this green state.

While pushing your way towards Northern California, you can visit the Redwood National Park – home to some of the tallest trees in the world.

As mentioned earlier, the road trip is no less than a big adventure. Visiting the Oregon sand dunes, a sea lion colony, and a glimpse of the Pacific Ocean are key highlights of this photo tour.

On the last leg of the tour, you will take the ferry and cross over to Vancouver Island in the Canadian territory. Once you are back into the US territory, by traveling to one of the best car ferry crossings that takes you to Seattle, the final day highlight will be a visit to Art Wolf’s Gallery.

The last day will take you to Portland for your return journey and a rich collection of images that you will cherish for a lifetime.
