After being picked up at your hotel in downtown Seattle, climb into a luxury vehicle and begin the journey to Olympic National Park.

The park features snow-covered mountains, rain forests, and the majestic Pacific coastline. There are remote beaches, plus the country’s oldest forests and one of Washington’s most dramatic mountain ranges. The Olympic Peninsula is home to some of the greatest wilderness left in the United States, including sixteen species of plants and animals that evolved here—and nowhere else. Enjoy short, interpretive nature walks throughout the day. If there is enough snow for snowshoeing, the guide will bring all the necessary equipment.

Learn forest ecology and the geology of the stunning Olympic Mountains. Weather permitting, drive up to Hurricane Ridge for incredible mountain views and spot wildlife and waterfalls along the scenic routes. Visit the pristine waters of stunning Crescent Lake in the northern foothills of the Olympic Mountains. This lake was carved by glaciers, so it’s an ideal spot for those in search of natural beauty. On days when weather closes access to Hurricane Ridge, visit the sandy coastline of the Dungeness Wildlife Refuge or spend more time among the forests and waterfalls of the Elwha Valley.

At midday, a gourmet picnic is provided. Please see the Itinerary section for menu information.

Our tour guide, Sean was terrific. We took three tours, Mt St Helens, Rainier and Olympic in three successive days, with three different companies. Sean was the best guide and the meal and snacks from Evergreen Escapes were the best.

The snow mountain range is spectacular! And I love the hike on the mountain ridge so you can see beautiful views on both sides. My second favorite is the lunch Picnic at the bank of a turquoise river - beautiful view plus tasty food, feeling very peaceful and joyful. Our tour guide Karen is very gentle, knowledgeable and helpful. The whole tour is amazing and unforgettable!

Wonderful trip. I was concerned because I’m not in the best of shape and I had done a lot of walking during my stay in Seattle and I was having knee issues but I was fine. The scenery was beautiful, our guide, Karen, was great, and it was a memorable experience.

This tour was great. It felt like we were so close to the mountain ranges that we could touch them even tough we were at a distance. Our guide, Lindsey, had a great personality & made our ride fun. He was knowledgeable & made sure we were well taken care of.
