    Olympic National Park Walk/Snowshoe Tour

    (25)
    Olympic National Park is a UNESCO World-Heritage Site distinguished for its ecological diversity and expansive wilderness. This naturalist-guided tour takes you across Puget Sound to the northeast part of the Olympic Peninsula, where you'll explore the moss-draped forests, azure lakes, and striking mountains that define the region. Visit Hurricane Ridge to watch deer graze in the meadows, listen to the distinct shrill of a marmot, smell the pungent perfume of a summer wildflower, or feel the snow crunch beneath your feet on a winter snowshoe. Then continue west to the glacially-carved Lake Crescent, where you'll delve into the fern-filled forests that line its shores, venturing to Marymere Falls if time allows. Throughout the day your guide will chronicle how Olympic's isolation and protection has produced these distinct ecosystems. On days when weather closes access to Hurricane Ridge we may visit the sandy coastline of the Dungeness Wildlife Refuge or spend more time among the forests and waterfalls of the Elwha Valley.
