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 a downtown Seattle 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 on the Marymere Falls trail, which is lined with Old Growth Douglas Fir trees and culminates in a beautiful waterfall. Then gaze upon the majestic Lake Crescent, a sparkling glacial lake surrounded by mountains.

Next, you'll be driven 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.

  • Organic and locally-sourced
  • Includes a meat (such as grilled salmon or chicken), a grain salad (such as quinoa with roasted vegetables) and a green salad. Sometimes sandwiches or wraps as served in lieu of the meat dish. Vegetarian option available.

OMG! This tour made my whole trip worth while .I have always wanted to see Olympic Park.And tour Washington State.I truly can't say how great it was .And the guide was wonderful. He was so friendly and very attending everyone's needs. And he knew all the answers to our questions .This company needs to keep him around for sure.The country side is so beautiful.I come from Florida where's its flat.He took us up in the mountains and hiked a couple times.Saw a waterfall and huge trees.I wouldn't say a older person could handle some of the hiking but they can stay near the high end Mercedes coach van we drove in at plenty of park benches. And they can sight see on the drive.If I ever go back to Seattle I will take this tour again for the sightseeing.Again I LOVED it.Thank you Arny!

I had a great time on the trip. Our guide was on time and very knowledgable. We had great snacks and a picnic lunch. We saw and learned a lot. We took a hike at one stop and on the way home we were able to stop at the beach and take another walk along the coast. It was an enjoyable day.

Our guide, Natasha, was really nice and gave our group great suggestions on what to look for and places we might want to explore. Something we didn't expect was the overall long drive - though without traffic. The views of the Olympic Mountains are well worth it, as well as the beach. Wonderful hike, lunch and observing wildlife.

This was a great trip and I would definitely recommend! Our guide Justin was excellent and very knowledgeable. The scenery was spectacular - but keep in mind that the park is massive, so you won't see all of it, and some parts, like the Hoh rainforest, are too far to reach on a day trip from Seattle
