What You Can Expect

Small-Group Olympic National Park Tour from Seattle

Olympic National Park in the Winter

Hop in the luxury vehicle and head out to Olympic National Park on this full-day, small-group tour from Seattle. Olympic National Park, located on the Olympic Peninsula, is a microcosm of Northwest ecosystems, where you will find remote beaches fringing the country's oldest forests and one of the state's most dramatic mountain ranges. The options for adventures are endless, as the Olympic Peninsula harbors some of the greatest true wilderness left in the contiguous United States, including a lush temperate rainforest. Sixteen species of plants and animals evolved here and nowhere else.

Your tour begins with hotel pickup and a delicious light breakfast including pastries and hot beverages. The drive to Olympic National Park will have plenty of photo stops and you will see a waterfall or two, as well as stop to take a few short interpretive nature walks. Your naturalist guide will lead you out onto the sand spit to an old lighthouse, spotting for birds along the way. In spring and fall, thousands of waterfowl and shorebirds descend on the shallow waters protected by the spit.

Next, you will climb up to Hurricane Ridge, a mountain citadel that puts you at the edge of the park's exceptionally jagged peaks. Olympic marmots and black-tailed deer often show up, and black bears are fairly common. From the meadows at the summit, take in a superb 360-degree view that embraces the surrounding mountains, the strait and the San Juan Islands. During the winter when snow is on the ground, typically mid-October through mid-March, you will strap on snowshoes for this guided nature trek.

At midday, dine on a gourmet picnic of fresh local ingredients and local wines. Select snacks and drinks will be provided throughout the tour. For menu information, please refer to the Itinerary section.

Great time! Awesome guide - Dan- was knowledgeable and accommodating. Tour gave me a perspective on Olympic Peninsula. Inspiring views- intimate conversations- like a trip I would plan. Can't wait to come back with my hiking buddies from New Jersey to take advantage of your kayak tours! Thanks!

Great experience from the start to finish! EverGreen Escapes, the tour operator, was constantly in touch about timing, contacts, location pickup, etc., giving us the sense that they are alert and detail-oriented. Marty W. was our guide. He answered the group's questions, added interesting stories, and was friendly and enthusiastic (not a stand-offish or bland lecturer-type). His love of the area definitely rubbed off! And the lunch and location were superb (thanks for getting us the table w/spectacular view Marty). After a very long day of driving and chatting, we we returned home, safe and happy from the experience.
