  • If one moves from Northern to Southern California, one must under no circumstances be deceiving itself for a slight detour through the Avenue of the Giants. It was here we really became acquainted with the massive Redwoods. You can enjoy the sight from inside the car, where many of the giant tree stems going all the way out to the road. You can also keep in a few spots. We did a stay by the Immortal Tree, which has a totally crazy story! There are of course plenty of opportunities to buy souvenirs, beverages with more of these stops.

  • Majestic redwoods. Many stop off areas though they are not marked in a very visible way. Doesn't matter though as any stop is filled with beautiful, large trees.  more »
  • We drove this way instead of the highway and it was worth every second. Not much traffic, peaceful and lots of photo opportunities. The redwoods are unbelievable! Do not pass this up!  more »

  • We hit that place upon a bicycle tour 2005. The avenue is like a big cathedral. A very silent place. So nice to see the giant redwood trees.
  • Gorgeous redwoods, it's very humbling to stand beside a tree that was alive since Christ walked the earth and lives on still.
  • Beautiful and awe inspiring.
  • So many huge wonders out here. You'll be blown away by how small you arei n comparison to these trees.
  • A path in the middle of the most beautiful and large Redwood trees in the world: California!
