Yakima Valley

Yakima Valley forms part of Washington’s Wine Country and is located in the middle of the southernmost part of the state. While glamping in Yakima Valley, oenophiles will try a number of different varietals characteristic to this wine grape-growing region, including Chardonnay, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, and Syrah. In fact, 40% of the state’s wine grapes come from the Yakima Valley! Don’t forget the area’s other crops, though, too, which include a variety of fruits, such as apples, cherries, pears, peaches, nectarines, and plums, as well as the vast majority of the hops produced in the U.S. as a whole. To best see the whole valley and get a feel for what it’s all about, go on a bike tour through the vineyards or whitewater rafting on the Tieton River, buy some fresh produce at the farmers’ market to cook back in the glamping rental, or switch it up for some craft beer on the Spirits and Hops Trail—all while luxury camping in Yakima Valley.
