Your private group's Mount Rainier helicopter flight and hiking combo full day tour is divided into three parts: 35+ minute helicopter flight, 4 hour ground tour with naturalist hike, and a catered meal. As the helicopter's capacity is limited to just 3 passengers, groups of 4 to 6 guests will be divided between morning and afternoon flights. Both tours include all of the same incredible experiences and the full group will have a catered lunch together by the National Park.
In a 4-seater Robinson R44, you'll soar over the Mt. Rainier Wilderness, getting up close with peaks, glaciers, waterfalls and thundering rivers that would take days of strenuous hiking to reach from the ground. Between Mt. Rainier and Seattle, your pilot will even take you on a close flyby of Snoqualmie Falls and you'll glide over the Cascade foothills' lakes, rivers and dense forests. You'll enjoy incredible photography opportunities with a bird's eye view of all of this stunning scenery. On the clearest days, you'll also catch glimpses of Mt. Baker, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, and even Mt. Hood in Oregon--5 of the greatest Pacific Northwest Peaks in a day! As you fly along, your expert pilot will point out the sites and maneuver the helicopter to offer the best views.
Ground Tour & Naturalist Hike
Once on the ground at a secluded location surrounded by plunging valleys, your ground tour guide will take you to experience the best of the National Park that you won't get to see from the helicopter: walk through a towering old growth forest, gaze across wildflower fields that burst with color in the summer sun, and feel the cool spray of mist from crashing waterfalls.
You'll learn about the mountain's geologic history, diverse climate and stunning glaciology. On a moderate hike, you'll breath in the freshest mountain air and search for wildlife in the forest and sub-alpine slopes. Stopping frequently to marvel at the scenery around us, countless photography opportunities await you around each bend in the trail.
Inclusive Catered Meal
We want you to eat well during your full day excursion with us. Your private tour with us includes a delicious, beautifully catered meal in the midst of Mt. Rainier's natural splendor. While the group will fly into and out of the Park separately, you will share lunch together on the ground surrounded by the Park's natural beauty. Time for lunch together is approximately 1 hour.
