At 14,410 feet above sea level, beautiful and majestic Mt Rainier is an icon in the Washington landscape — an active volcano and the most glaciated peak in the United States, creating six major rivers. It is, in a word — breathtaking — to look at.
This day trip nature tour to hike and/or snowshoe around Mt Rainier National Park begins with a Seattle hotel pickup followed by a scenic 2-hour drive to the park in a luxury vehicle. Upon arrival, enjoy Seattle coffee and pastries before starting the trek along the Nisqually Vista Trail. Be on the lookout for wildlife wandering around the mountain at any time. Binoculars are provided to get a closer look.
This all-day Mt Rainier tour includes frequent stops to take pictures and enjoy light snacks. A picnic lunch of locally sourced, organic foods (grilled chicken or salmon, sandwich or wrap, with a grain or green salad and regional wine, water or soda) is also provided midday.
At the end of the day, it’s back down the mountain to take a relaxing return trip to Seattle.
