Mt. Rainier is encased in more than 35 square miles of snow and ice! This National Park is also blanketed by old-growth forests, alpine meadows, shimmering lakes, and rushing waterfalls. This isn’t just another driving tour of a National Park—experience the highlights beyond the vehicle during walks and hikes appropriate for most abilities. We have options!
Stroll through the old-growth forests near Longmire, where Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar trees dwarf visitors and the bubbling of natural springs fill the crisp air. Experience waterfalls and big mountain views as you wind to higher elevations. In the summer, pick wild berries on a sub-alpine hiking trail. In the winter, take advantage of Paradise’s legendary snowfall (and the winter solitude) on an introductory snowshoe trail.
We bring lots of snacks, a local lunch, coffee, tea and local wine!
