Book this itinerary
This road trip is the perfect combination of magnificent nature and vibrant cities. Pacific Coastline West takes you through lush scenery in Oregon to the rough cliffs of the northern California coast and onwards to the hilly San Francisco and to the always-sunny Los Angeles.

Start your adventure from Seattle and head south. Driving down the Western US coastline you'll get to visit cities like Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, but you'll also get to witness some amazing nature sights such as the giant redwoods, the deepest lake of the US and the breathtaking Yosemite National Park.

We've included a car in this road trip, but you can change it to a campervan if you'd like, the choice is yours! It's also good to mention that when you're renting a car abroad, make sure to have your travel insurance in order. Don't have one yet? No worries - we can help you out with that.

What is road trippin’ the KILROY Way?

Well, we always encourage our travelers to be curious. To open up, and to embrace the unexpected. Stop where you can, go down the narrow side street and don’t get stuck in the camper. Don’t just drive for the sake of driving. Approach new people. Approach new ways of doing things. Explore and be open to changes – that’s where the magic happens. 

*Price is a from-price per person and based on 2 people over 25 traveling together. Reach out to us if you're a little younger than that - it's not a problem!

Seattle, Washington

Start your trip in the beautiful Seattle, where we recommend that you take at least 2 nights so that you can get a smooth start to your adventure without rushing it. Take some time to explore the city famous for its many coffee shops, the tall Space Needle tower and the old Pike Place Market.

After a couple of days of city life, it's time to start getting ready to hit the road and pick up the rental car!

Portland, Oregon

Next up on this road trip is the vibrant city of Portland which is also considered one of the greenest and most environmentally friendly cities in the US. Visit one or more of the city's gardens, try out different restaurants, wander around the famous Saturday Market and do a little bit of shopping if you'd like.

While road tripping through the state of Oregon, you should also drive to visit the gorgeous Crater Lake and hike up one of the surrounding trails for amazing views over the crystal clear water and almost 700 meter caldera formed by a collapsed volcano.

Redwood National Parks, California

Have you ever dreamed of wandering around in a lush forest surrounded by world's tallest trees? Here's your chance! Stop for a visit at the Redwood National Parks and take yourself for a hike on one of the many paths of this stunning area. The parks have an amazing diversity to them, meaning that you can find not only redwood forests, but also prairies, wild rivers, and 60 kilometers of Pacific coastline.

San Francisco, California

Welcome to the beautiful city of San Francisco, where hippies and financiers live side by side. The city is full of contradictions, colorful personalities, culture, cool restaurants and cozy neighborhoods. Here you find a financial district, a hippie-town, China Town and Japan Town! Alcatraz is also worth a visit before jumping in the car and starting your road trip. Just remember to book your tickets well in advance, trust us - they do get sold out!

Yosemite National Park, California

Next it's time to take a little detour from the coast and head to Yosemite National Park. Here you can find some of the tallest waterfalls in North America as well as deep cliffs and valleys that will take your breath away. Spend a couple of days hiking and exploring the park and its trails.

Monterey Bay, California

Monterey Bay is a cozy small beach town with a great vibe. We recommend that you hang out here for a few days before moving on. If you want to see sea lions and otters in the open air, you should go to Fisherman's Wharf, where they often lay in the sun on rocks around the harbor. If you're a fan of wine, you can visit one of California's many vineyards.

Big Sur, California

Big Sur State Park is a real road trip attraction. The road through the park stretches along the dramatic coastal landscapes characterized by beautiful beaches, sea lions, sea elephants and one of the area's most iconic waterfalls - McWay Falls.

San Simeon, Hearst Castle & Morro Bay, California

San Simeon is famous for two things, that you should do when in this area. One is exploring the extravagant Hearst Castle, build by the former real estage magnate, William Randolph Hearst and the other is to go to San Luis Obispo and rent a dune buggy! When you've been to both, make sure you allow some time to check out the tide pools and sea life of San Simeon as well. End your stay in the area in Morro Bay - a small beachside town with great vibes, before you move further down the coast.

Santa Barbara, California

Santa Barbara is also known as "the American Riviera". Here you can go whale watching, go to the weekly arts and crafts market or go on a beer tasting at one of the many local breweries. You should also remember to go to the beach where you can rent a kayak or surfboard! The city is home to one of the coolest colleges in California, so the young and hip vibe in this beach town reflects the true Californian spirit.

Santa Monica & Los Angeles, California

Last stop on this itinerary is Los Angeles. We've included 3 nights in our favorite hostel at Venice Beach, so you can either decide to drop of the car and explore the surroundings by foot, bike or one of the electric scooters. It's a nice way to get around in the nearby neighborhoods, whereas if you'd like to cover bigger distances in the city for instance to check out some of the fashionable areas such as Beverly Hills and Hollywood, a car would be a better solution. Don't miss the view from Griffith Observatory, where you'll get a splendid view over the city. Whether you want to go home after LA or continue the trip onwards is up to you, we'll help you out either way.
