Brighten Up Your Holiday Season In The Islands
Experience Hygge in the Islands

Hygge (pronounce hoo-ga) ) is found in life’s simple pleasures. It’s a Danish term that refers to feelings of coziness, contentment, and togetherness – especially in the cold winter months. Slow down in the Islands and enjoy these simple pleasures.

7 Ways to Mix Up Holiday Cheer

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, a homemade cocktail can help to make the season bright. Try these San Juan Islands-inspired recipes, courtesy of the restaurants and resorts on Orcas Island, Lopez Island and San Juan Island. Enjoy!

Winter Paradise in the San Juans

Visit the towns, hamlets and villages on the three main islands—all decked in holiday lights. Stroll an empty beach, browse in uncrowded shops and indulge in spas, local wines, and delicious cuisine. The San Juans are the perfect winter retreat!
