Take the Tour

Snohomish County, WA

Snohomish County begins 12 miles north of Seattle, a little under 100 miles south of Vancouver, and a short ferry ride away from the San Juan Islands or Olympic Peninsula, Snohomish County is ideally situated for exploring the entire Pacific Northwest.

Skykomish & Snoqualmie River Valley

Artfully bordered by the cool waters of Puget Sound, the crisp call of the Cascade Mountains and your own curiosity, Snohomish County can truly make you feel different from the moment you arrive!

Welcome to the Sky Valley where adventure awaits, no matter if your preference is meandering back roads, shopping, or pursuing daring outdoor activities!

Wide-open land, fresh cut flowers and U-pick berries are the sights, aromas and flavor of Snohomish County. Get lost in a corn maze, browse through a pumpkin patch, taste ripe berries from the bush, or pick a handful of flowers for that favorite vase. Come sip the many flavors of Western Washington in Snohomish County’s boutique wineries, breweries or the new micro-distilleries. In the summer and early autumn, wander the farmers markets throughout the county for a fun, community atmosphere and score some fresh, home-grown and homemade products. 

Enjoy a glimpse of the past while strolling among late 19th- and early 20th-century architecture. Also known as the "Antique Capital of the Northwest," the historic city of Snohomish has a wonderful selection of antiques and collectables. Find gifts and unique mementos from your visit at the delightful variety of charming shops, then stop off for local tastes at popular restaurants.

Indulge in world-class fishing, hiking, kayaking, rafting, river snorkeling, motorcycle riding, an off-road vehicle park, birding, rock climbing, mountain biking, and golfing.

If rock crawling, mudding, and traversing challenging, forested paths in lifted vehicles inspires you, make your way to the 10,000-acre Reiter Foothills State Forest. Rafting on Class 5 rapids is a heart-pounding adventure you won’t want to miss! Explore heart-pounding chutes on the glacial-blue Skykomish River, where tall trees meet untamed wilderness. Be challenged by the tough, steep climbing on granite crack climbs, face climbs, and friction slabs when climbing the Index Town Wall, just off Highway 2 near the town of Index.

Feel the crisp air rush past your face as you free fall 13,500 feet into the gorgeous Snohomish River Valley on a high-flying adventure at Skydive Snohomish, named one of the 6 Best Places to go Skydiving in the world by TravelChannel.com. Or cut a frontside 540 or perfect a surface 360 as you unwind with wakeboarding on spacious Lake Stevens.

So whatever you’re up for – whether camping or canoeing, kayaking or climbing, shopping or restaurants, agriculture or the arts – we invite you to open up . . . to life, to adventure, and to discovery.
