Located northeast of Seattle in the North Cascades National Park Complex, Skagit Tours offers spectacular scenery in one of the nation’s most rugged parks. This makes it the perfect destination for an epic road trip.

Seattle City Light offers four excursions, including the Diablo Lake and Lunch tour which features a cruise of the glacier-fed, emerald waters of Diablo Lake and an amazing locally-sourced lunch. The Diablo Lake Afternoon Cruise is a non-lunch version of this tour. The Dam Good Chicken Dinner and Ladder Creek Falls by Night tour serves tradition on a platter with its famous chicken dinner—a custom (and recipe) that dates to the 1930s. Finally, the Powerhouse Insiders tour gets you inside Gorge Powerhouse to see the big machinery serving electricity to Seattle. It’s topped off by a picnic lunch in the company town of Newhalem. All tours highlight the utility’s long-standing, hydropower legacy.

Whether it’s the majestic mountains, glistening lakes, wildlife, solitude or the tours’ camaraderie, you’ll breathe easier here this summer. Visit or call 360-854-2589 to learn more and book.
