See your world differently.
Ditch your daily hustle and break the routine with an incredible four day cycling and illustration trip of the San Juan Islands. The ferry ride into the archipelago kickstarts a tour of three of our favorite islands in a way that will completely change the way you see your day-to-day. Under the guidance of Chris McNally, you’ll pedal the San Juan Islands with sketchbooks on hand, pedaling Swift Adventure Co.’s favorite backroads and honing your skills as an adventure illustrator. Each evening brings the crew back to Orcas Island to a cozy basecamp for delicious open-air meals and good times around a roaring fire to wrap up the day.
Official Trip Info
You don’t need to be a renaissance master to tune-in to your surroundings and see your world completely differently. The art of illustration is as much about observing as it is about laying pigment to paper. Unlock a kaleidoscope of texture and light, and hone your pen and brush skills as we explore the wilder side of the San Juan Islands by bicycle.
The trip starts and ends at Swift HQ in Seattle, WA. Coming from out-of-town? Don’t hesitate to contact us about lodging recommendations and travel logistics, we’re happy to help!
