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.

We were very pleased with the professional service and fantastic experience by your local partner (Evergreen Escape) though there were 2 of us for the full day tour. The guide Melissa was very friendly and caring, we had a wonderful day. Thumb up for her great service and we had a great time for the full day tour. Cheers, Yokie

Had such an amazing time! Our guide Sean was very knowledgeable, funny and made use feel like part of the family taking good care of us. The drive was beautiful, getting to go snow shoeing for the first time was awesome I definitely would recommend warm socks and hiking boots and insulated pants and a nice warm jacket if your going in November like we did as it got pretty cold though our guide did also have extras just in case anyone needed any. The drive up and the mountain were both Beautiful but my favorite was Christine falls and I’m not just saying that because I got engaged there it was truly beautiful, like a winter wonderland when we went even got to hike through and old growth beautiful green forest on the way back and got to see some elk! Anyways HIGHLY recommend
