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).

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

Adam was a fabulous guide giving us background knowledge from start to finish. He is ideally suited to making the trip as full an experience as possible. We had a great time.

This tour was the most absolute highlight of our trip! My boyfriend and I enjoyed Paradise as it was the last stop at the top. We enjoyed every single moment of the tour and we couldn't have wanted it better without our tour guide Chris! He was the best tour guide that anyone could ask for! He also mentioned that we were the lucky ones during the tour because during that day, up in Paradise it was clear and the view was phenomenal and easy to see the other mountains and the cascades!

I would recommend this tour to anyone. So great, so fun, and the Huckleberry Ice Cream at the end hits the spot after a long tour up in Paradise.
