Tour Details

Tour Mt. Rainier National Park, America's fifth-oldest protected park, and home to the greatest single-peak glacial system in the country. This Seattle tour will bring you to the foot of a dormant volcano, where eons of time and tectonic movement have carved out one of the continent's most breathtaking landscapes. Mountain lakes, idyllic waterfalls, and unforgettable views await you on this tour of Mt. Rainier.

Begin your tour of Mt. Rainier National Park by heading south from Seattle to the Nisqually entrance to the park. Continue up a winding and scenic road to the brand new Paradise Jackson Visitor Center.

Depending on the time of year, you'll see an array of mountain wildlife in its natural habitat and Alpine flora blooming into the summer months. Don't forget to bring a jacket, though - even in the summertime, Mt. Ranier is cool and breezy, and there's always some snow on the ground at higher elevations.

Also on your Mt. Rainier tour, experience the placid beauty of Reflection Lake, Christine Falls, the awe-inspiring vistas of the Glacial Moraines, and the romance of Narada Falls. You'll also stop at the Paradise Jackson Visitor Center. There, you'll have an hour lunch break, during which you may be able to choose from a variety of ranger-led interpretive talks about the mountain and its glaciers and wildlife, if time permits. With so many things to see, your guide will take his time, allowing you plenty of opportunities to photograph the incredible panoramas, wildlife, and natural wonders within Mt. Rainier National Park. Join this guided tour to witness firsthand the unparalleled natural beauty of Mt. Rainier.

Reviewer: Jim & Joanne from Florida
This tour was absolutely wonderful. We traveled through Mt. Rainier National Park. The sites were spectacular. We saw Mt. Rainier from different points along with beautiful waterfalls. The morning started out cloudy and once we arrived at Mt. Rainier we had a beautiful blue sunny sky. It was truly a beautiful nature experience. Our guide was very informative and courteous.

Really enjoyed the trip, but would have preferred more stories about the area instead of the drivers attempts at humor. Plenty of stops and ample time for photos. Scenery was amazing. Saturdays in August are to be avoided because of the overcrowding of the park.

Reviewer: Mary the Mother
The tour to Mt Ranier was fabulous. The guide picked us up in front of the condo we were renting and let us out at another place we wanted to see at the end of the tour. He was so knowledgeable and accommodating and even furnished water for us. He stopped at every lookout so we could take pictures, and he continually educated us on the history of this area. He also served us fresh cold watermelon and stopped at a grocery store so we could buy lunch and not have to pay the higher prices at the lodge. In addition, he took us on an adventure walk through the snow for ""a once in a lifetime photo opportunity"" of Mt Ranier reflected in Relection Lake. He also pointed out various trees and flowers and told stories about the history and grandeur of Mt Ranier. Superior buy for the money.
