Mt. Rainier National Park day tour

Mt. Rainier is encased in more than 35 square miles of snow and ice, and surrounded by old-growth forests, alpine meadows, shimmering lakes and rushing waterfalls. Your naturalist guide will reveal the natural and cultural history of Mt. Rainier, from the medicinal properties of native plants to the geological forces that produced this imposing monolith, as you explore different sections of the National Park on interpretative walks or snowshoes.

Stroll through the old-growth forests near Longmire, where Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar trees dwarf visitors and the gurgles of natural springs fill the crisp air. Experience waterfalls and mountain views as you wind to higher elevations. Take advantage of Paradise’s legendary snowfalls on an introductory snowshoe trail or pick tart wild berries on a sub-alpine summer hiking trail.

Throughout the tour your guide will intersperse fascinating insights with moments of solitude as you become enveloped in Mt. Rainier’s pristine wilderness.

Olympic National Park day tour

Olympic National Park is a UNESCO World-Heritage Site distinguished for its ecological diversity and expansive wilderness. This naturalist-guided tour takes you across Puget Sound to the northeast part of the Olympic Peninsula, where you’ll explore the moss-draped forests, azure lakes and striking mountains that define the region.

Visit Hurricane Ridge to watch deer graze in the meadows, listen to the distinct shrill of a marmot, smell the pungent perfume of a summer wildflower or feel the snow crunch beneath your feet on a winter snowshoe.

Then, continue west to the glacially-carved Lake Crescent, where you’ll delve into the fern-filled forests that line its shores, venturing to Marymere Falls if time allows. Throughout the day, your guide will chronicle how Olympic isolation has produced these distinct ecosystems.

On days when weather closes access to Hurricane Ridge you may visit the sandy coastline of the Dungeness Wildlife Refuge or spend more time among the forests and waterfalls of the Elwha Valley
