Full description
Located about 75 miles southeast of Seattle, Mount Rainier National Park sits between the jagged Olympic Mountains and the volcanic peaks of the Cascade Range. The mountain is an active volcano, encased in 35 square miles of snow and ice, surrounded by old growth forest and covered in a stunning carpet of wildflowers. After the drive to the park by luxury Mercedes van, you will soon be entranced by the beauty of the glorious landscape, which soars to heights of over 14,000 feet. Remember to take your binoculars to spot birds and wildlife, such as marmots, coyotes, elk, and black bears. Breathe in that clear air as you take in the sounds and scents of the forests and lakes. Your naturalist guide will lead you on a walk or snowshoe of the Nisqually Vista Trail. If you fancy something a little more challenging, then don’t be afraid to ask. Groups are kept small to allow for maximum service and a truly tailored experience. There will be time to pause for a lunch of delicious local, seasonal produce and wine. Back on the walk, enjoy views of waterfalls, river valleys and even glaciers. You will end the day with a descent down the road to the park’s roots at Longmire. Keep your eyes peeled for deer in the meadow as they make their late afternoon trek to the river’s edge.

    Prompt pick-up from hotel, followed by a 1.5hr drive to a small secluded lake for some pastries and coffee, followed by another 45min drive to the entrance of Mount Rainier. The drive through the National Park is staggeringly breathtaking, made better by an incredibly knowledgeable guide (shout out to Mal). Multiple stops were taken in the ascent, with the guide providing commentary on the history, views and flora and fauna of the area. Snow-shoeing is a must, as the view pay-off is incredible.

    What an incredible day on Mt Rainier! It was truly memorable and totally worth it. Sean our guide was the funniest and most knowledgeable of them all, we definitely lucked out. What a beautiful day full of laughters and good times. The sceneries were absolutely stunning and I found snowshoeing to be a lot of fun! I wouldn't change a thing about that day, a really wonderful experience I'll remember forever.
