Kicking Off a Live Free Summer: Tripping the PNW with Pura Vida

We’re setting out on the trip of a lifetime over the next few months – and you’re coming with! ✈️ Pura Vida is hitting the road with some of our favorite adventurers over the next few months, exploring gorgeous scenes and vistas along the way. Follow along as we trek across the country and embrace what it means to live free, the Pura Vida way. 

Where better to kick off this movement than the Pacific Northwest?! ⛰️ Our journey begins in the most scenic setting, Bridal Veil Falls. Nestled less than two hours outside of Seattle, our first stop proves to be a prime weekend escape from the hustle of the city with the help of beautiful falls, serene stream crossings, and cozy, a-frame cabin stays. 

Of course, we had to bring a few of our friends for the ride. Eva Seelye is a Washington state-based adventure photographer who shares her experiences in sustainable travel. Linda Podiak is based in Tacoma and documents her travels, the views that come with them, and the hikes and happy hours she encounters along the way. 🥂 Our last guest is Sam Caldwell, a digital creator based in the PNW sharing vlog-styled travel content and documenting helpful tips she learns throughout each trip.

This leg of the trip kicks off with a ~ 90 minute drive from Seattle into the Cascade Mountains of Washington State in Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. Here, our guests hiked through the woods, swam in creeks, and took in the incredible views the mountains and falls had to offer. Then, they ventured to the TreeFrame Cabin for a nights stay in Index, Washington, where the group settled in and embraced cozy coffee corners, picturesque views from the hot tub, and made so many memories. 

We couldn’t imagine a better start to this one-of-a-kind experience. This trip, and the Live Free Tour as a whole, is all about reveling in the live free spirit and personifying the pillars that Pura Vida was built on. Pillars like… 


Living free is all about getting out there, exploring places you’ve never been before, and, of course, looking good while doing it. Shop the looks Linda sported throughout her travels at these links: Straw Malibu Bracelet, Multi Mini Braided Bracelet, Tropic Bracelet, and the Gemstone Eye Coin Charm Bracelet.  


Each day is an opportunity to explore something completely new, never knowing what you’ll find! Eva took the Pura Vida Pisa Stretch Bracelet, and Tides Mini Bracelet along on her ventures in Bridal Veil Falls. 


The most special part about the Pura Vida lifestyle is the friends you make along the way. We had the best time getting to know Eva, Linda, and Sam on our first trip. You can shop Sam’s styles here: Bahama Bead Stretch Bracelet and Gemstone Eye Ring


There’s no feeling more freeing than uncovering new parts of who you are and shaking the weight of day-to-day life. Our trip-goers found their freedom in our Rainbow Hoop Earrings and Estrella Gemstone Stud Earrings
