About the Tour

Gold Rush lore, ancient redwood forests, majestic mountains and volcanoes, and friendly farmers beckon on our brand new tour of Northern California. Along the way, you’ll walk on top of and inside towering Shasta Dam (including a ride from top to bottom); meet mandarin orange, rice, and prune farmers; and spend a day in majestic Lassen Volcanic National Park, one of our country’s off-the-beaten-path secrets. Plus, see immaculately restored engines and railroad cars of the Gold Rush era...and spend a day and a half surrounded by California’s famed coastal Redwoods!
