People from around the globe visit Skagit Valley to experience the Tulip and Daffodil Extravaganza during March and April. And so should you! Eighteen fields and two gardens come to life painting our valley in the most colorful displays you’ve ever seen. Come see why our Daffodil and Tulip Festivals were voted the top 2016 Spring Trip by National Geographic.
During the Skagit Valley Tulips & Daffodils Tour, we’ll visit the exquisitely arranged tulip gardens at RoozenGaarde and Tulip Town (beginning March 30), both of which also have extensive and multicolored tulip fields. Plan on photographing tulips to your heart’s content!
You’ll also be driven around the farm roads to the blooming fields so you can take more pictures of the stunning color displays from the millions of tulips and daffodils. Look up, you might catch Mount Baker spying down on you or swans and geese flying overhead (early in the season).
Our knowledgeable and friendly local guide (who, btw, has been guiding adventures for 29 yrs) will talk about the daffodil and tulip industry in Skagit Valley (and other parts of the world), as well as the origin, history, impact on human cultures, horticulture, farming, varieties and characteristics of these flowers.
Rubber boots are loaned when fields are muddy.
Food is available at the gardens, nearby restaurants and delis, or enjoy a delicious salmon barbeque.
The LaConner Daffodil and Skagit Valley Tulip Festivals include two-month-long activities in Mount Vernon, La Conner and Anacortes while the daffodils and tulips are blooming. Extend your stay to enjoy some of these activities as well!
