Mt Rainier Day Tour from Seattle

Mt Rainier Day Tour from Seattle

This Mt Rainier day trip begins with a convenient hotel pickup in the downtown Seattle, SeaTac, Tukwila and Renton areas on a 24-passenger mini coach. Then prepare for a narrated, scenic drive to the foothills of Mt Rainier National Park.

Stop at Longmire, the visitor center at the southwest corner of the park, to explore their museum and National Park Inn. Purchase lunch at the world-renowned Whittaker School of Mountaineering and watch a 30-minute slide show, presented by a Mt Rainier guide.

Visit Christine Falls, with one of the signature views in Mt Rainier National Park (look for the bridge). Walk along the Nisqually River up to Narada Falls, considered the most popular waterfall in Mt Rainier State Park. It’s taller than Niagara Falls at 188 feet. And enjoy Paradise, famous for its beautiful views and wildflower meadows some 5,400 feet above sea level.

Then it’s back down the mountain to take a return trip, with a new view, to Seattle.

Our guide was fun and knowledgable. The weather kept us forming viewing the summit, but it was still enjoyable, and I'm glad we went.

A wonderful tour! I very much enjoyed my day at Mt. Rainier. Our tour guide Rick was fantastic! He was knowledgeable and fun. There is a value in not needing to rent a car and having a tour guide take you to the best spots. This tour was the highlight of my first trip to Seattle.
