  • From Seattle: Mount Rainier Full-Day Tour

    1. From Seattle: Mount Rainier Full-Day Tour

    Visit Mount Rainier with a professional tour guide and discover all that this national park has to offer on this full-day tour. After getting picked up from your hotel, hop in a comfortable 22-passenger minibus with large windows, high back seats, and air-conditioning and head straight to the park.

    Experience old-growth forests, wildflower-filled meadows, and thundering waterfalls on this tour of glacier-clad Mt. Rainier. Hike and walk a little, a lot, or not at all: there are options for all abilities. Enjoy lunch at a Mount Rainier café or buy a picnic lunch along the way. Visit the interpretive center at Paradise to learn even more about the mountain’s glaciers, plants, and animals.

    Return to Seattle through pastoral farmlands and memorable Pacific Northwest scenery. Make a final stop at Wapiti Woolies and try the famous huckleberry ice cream.

    I went on a couple hikes to see waterfalls and stopped at a lake. It was amazing to see everything. The one hour we had to ourselves was a little short to have lunch, gift shop and hike on our own, but it was doable based on choosing one of the shorter trails. There is quite a bit of steepness to each hike I participated in, so going downward was easier than upward back to the bus. So, you have to have some stamina and willingness to push through if you're not athletic like me. But, I had an awesome time and I loved all the views I saw. It was great meeting the people in my tour. I would definitely do it again.

Great day and Lucinda our guide was fabulous. Informative, friendly and down to earth. She made sure to give us the best possible experience and she delivered. Sunrise was gorgeous, the clouds parted to give us our view of the Mount and the wildflowers in bloom was a bonus. The stop at the old growth forest on the way down was also a bonus. I wish this review could come with smellavision. The smell of cold mountain air, flowers and fir trees was a delight. Thank you Northwest and especially Lucinda. We had an amazing day and it was tour money well spent!
