||Join us for a remarkable drive along pastoral back roads that lead to a dramatic Alpine climb to roadís end at Artistís Point. Exquisite views, considered some of the best in North America, are not to be missed! The tour winds back down the mountain for an Italian lunch at Milano''s in the quaint town of Glacier, then proceeds through bucolic farmlands for a stop in Lynden, and ends at the luxurious Semiahmoo Resort and Spa. The resort is situated on Birch Bay with views to the San Juan Islands and Canada.
