Guides at Discover the Northwest Tours impart insider information about local gems during expeditions through a Coeur d’Alene sparkling with more than 1.5 million lights. Groups gather to head east via bus, stopping in Ellensburg for lunch and an outing to the Clymer Museum of Art. Dinner in Spokane preludes arrival at the Coeur d’Alene Resort, where guests can snuggle into luxurious sheets and admire the sight of lights dancing off the lake. The second day provides solo travelers, couples, and bonding toboggan teams with ample time to explore the city’s shops and art havens. As dusk settles around the city, the Festival of Lights illumines downtown Coeur d’Alene. A Journey to the North Pole boat cruise whisks the group to see Santa in his workshop and a 161-foot tree—more than double the height of the tree in Rockefeller Center—bedecked with 10-foot-tall ornaments made by giants during kindergarten craft time.
On day three, the group ambles back to its starting points, stopping at Cow Creek Mercantile in Ritzville along the way to savor deli fare and peruse an eclectic gift shop stocked with local honey, Leanin’ Tree cards, and Ann Clark cookie cutters. A stop in Ellensburg provides another gift-shop opportunity as well as a taste of huckleberry ice cream to end trips on a sweet note, and guests return home readied for the holidays with suitcases stuffed with cheer.
