Almost unfathomable in size, this 2.1 million acre forest in the north-east corner of California represents more than 20% of the state and is roughly the size of Belgium!
The jewel of the region is Mt. Shasta. Visible from more than 100 miles and over 14,000 feet high, it is technically a live volcano.
With amazing and numerous scenic by-ways, the driving experience will thrill and humble you. Redding to the south, is the largest city in the area and the gateway to Shasta Trinity National Recreation Area, a mecca for outdoor activities from camping to backpacking; horseback riding to mountain biking.
This is also the home to Shasta Lake, the largest in California, formed by Shasta dam which has a spillway three times as high as Niagara Falls. This wilderness area is a truly unique experience, quiet open roads, breathtaking scenery and far away from the crowds.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay
and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the
video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in.
Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside
café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we
wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed
that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!
