    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.

    Olympic National Park Tour

    (7)
    Hop in the luxury Mercedes vehicle and head out to Olympic National Park on this full-day, small-group tour from Seattle. Olympic National Park, located on the Olympic Peninsula, is a microcosm of Northwest ecosystems, where you will find remote beaches fringing the country's oldest forests and one of the state's most dramatic mountain ranges. The options for adventures are endless, as the Olympic Peninsula harbors some of the greatest true wilderness left in the contiguous United States, including a lush temperate rainforest. Sixteen species of plants and animals evolved here and nowhere else.

    Your tour begins with hotel pickup and a delicious light breakfast including pastries and hot beverages. The drive to Olympic National Park will have plenty of photo stops and you will see a waterfall or two, as well as stop to take a few short interpretive nature walks. Your naturalist guide will lead you out onto the sand spit to an old lighthouse, spotting for birds along the way. In spring and fall, thousands of waterfowl and shorebirds descend on the shallow waters protected by the spit.

    Next, you will climb up to Hurricane Ridge, a mountain citadel that puts you at the edge of the park's exceptionally jagged peaks. Olympic marmots and black-tailed deer often show up, and black bears are fairly common. From the meadows at the summit, take in a superb 360-degree view that embraces the surrounding mountains, the strait and the San Juan Islands. During the winter when snow is on the ground, typically mid-October through mid-March, you will strap on snowshoes for this guided nature trek.

    Experience the essence of Washington's wild beauty and independent spirit on this journey to Snoqualmie Falls and Woodinville Wine Country. Start your day at Snoqualmie Falls where you'll watch the powerful waters plunge 268 ft. into the river canyon below.
