Overview
With massive glaciers, powerful waterfalls, and alpine meadows, Mount Rainier National Park is among one of Washington's most spectacular reserves, but it can be hard to get to, especially in heavy traffic. Visiting the active volcano on a guided tour lets you focus on the views while your guide takes on the hassle of driving. Plus your guide knows some of the best stops to make at some of the most beautiful places in the park.

  • Find the very best views in the massive Mount Rainier National Park
  • Learn the history behind the active volcano from your guide
  • Traveling with a guide means avoiding the hassle of Seattle driving
  • Option to add snowshoe or sled trip when conditions allow
What to Expect
Meet a guide at your Seattle hotel, and then travel to Mount Rainier National Park, learning a bit about the local area along the way. Pause a the Longmire Museum and National Park Inn, and keep your camera out at Christine Falls, which frames one of the classic views of Mount Rainier. Walk up the Nisqually River to stand at the foot of Narada Falls—at 188 feet (57 meters), it towers over Niagara Falls. The scenic highlight of the day is Paradise, a visitor center that's surrounded by alpine meadows, ideal for spotting wildlife. From here, you have the option to add a snowshoe or sledding trip if conditions allow, or simply take in the gorgeous views from Reflection Lake. Before returning to Seattle, enter the visitor center to learn the story behind Mount Rainier, and then finish the day with drop-off at your original departure point.

Mist came up, but feelings was fantastical anyway. Mist in the hills is a common phenomenon but I had it for the first time. I've been to this place several times, every time is different, but always beautiful!
