What To Expect:
West Coast Travel Tour Highlights
Discover one of the greatest journeys on earth–the monarch butterfly migration–on a private west coast getaway to El Encanto. This is the longest known insect migration on earth, and a true natural marvel. Although it’s still a mystery how the monarch butterflies know their migratory routes, this epic journey has been occurring for thousands of years. Observe the monarchs as they roost in eucalyptus trees, Monterey pines and Monterey cypress. You will stay in luxury accommodation at El Encanto, Santa Barbara’s most charming boutique property, your visit will include details like monarch-inspired cocktails and a healing cocoon spa treatment! Please note that the monarch butterflies migrate from mid-fall to early spring to the Coronado Butterfly Preserve in the city of Goleta.
If you can’t go see them yourself–consider planting milkweed–it’s the only plant they will lay their eggs on, and it’s quickly disappearing.
