Know More about this tour

Set between the jagged Olympic Mountains and the volcanic peaks of the Cascade Range, Mt Rainier — an active volcano encased in snow and ice — is the tallest peak of them all, standing 14,410 feet (4,392 meters) above sea level.
After your downtown Seattle hotel pickup, you’re driven about two hours to Mt Rainier by Mercedes minivan or luxury SUV. Admire the surrounding old-growth forest, lakes, waterfalls and stunning wildflower meadows, and enjoy French-pressed Seattle coffee and pastries before setting out on your walk.

Depending on the season, your naturalist guide leads your group on a short walk or snowshoe trek (weather permitting) along the Nisqually Vista Trail, or possibly something a little more challenging if your group is up for it. Binoculars are provided to help you spot birds and wildlife like marmots, elk, deer, fox and maybe even the coyotes and black bears that roam the mountainside. Throughout the day, you'll make plenty of stops for photo ops and provided light snacks.
Your full-day Mt Rainier tour includes a family-style picnic lunch of locally sourced, organic food, accompanied by regional wine; if the weather isn't suitable for outdoor dining, you'll eat inside the visitor center.

After the 2-hour drive back to Seattle, your tour ends with downtown Seattle hotel drop-off.

Picnic lunch sample menu:
  • Meat, such as grilled salmon or chicken, a sandwich or a wrap (vegetarian option available)
  • Grain salad, such as quinoa with roasted vegetables
  • Green salad
  • Local wine, Pellegrino mineral water and soda

  • A great experience! Must do...

  • Ben, our guide, was very knowledgeable and the tour full of information. It was a wonderful day! We highly recommend Ben and this tour.

  • This was a great trip. Didn't have to worry about driving. There was plenty of snacks, food and water. And the food was great!

  • Had nice view of Mt. Rainer, lunch was better than expected. Time at visitor center was too short.

  • Awesome experience Well informative and professional tour guides, Jenny and Claire . We were lucky to have 2 guides Claire was shadowing !! Food and plenty of snacks were provided.

  • Very accommodating. Everything is provided so no need to worry about bringing things other than your camera. This had more of a hike, which is great, but may not be for everyone. The routes will depend on the group. Great lunch and snacks. Kevin, our tour guide, was friendly and knowledgeable.

  • The Mt. Raniers small group tour was the perfect pace, because it was adapted to what the group wanted to do and wanted to see. Although it was foggy and we didn't get to see the peak, the trails, hikes, drive, food, and group was a great time. Marty was an excellent tour guide who focused on education, fun, and exactly what the group wanted to see.

  • Really enjoyed the tour, well worth the money. Small group of 9 people, really easy to get along with. Our guide Charlie was perfect: very friendly, perfectly organised, engaging.

  • It was rainy, but we enjoyed snowshoeing. Our guide always took care of us, but sometime I wasn't satisfied with his tour admission.

  • It was a nice introduction to Mt Rainer
