Explore pristine alpine meadows, wander through magical old growth forests, and watch roaring glacial waterfalls crash into rugged canyons on this private day tour to Mount Rainier National Park. The snow-capped peak, encased in over 35 square miles (91 km²) of ice year-round, is endearingly referred to locally as “The Mountain” and is a must-visit Seattle day trip. Throughout the day, you'll enjoy meaningful commentary on the history, culture, and geology of the region from an expert local guide. The tour includes a gourmet lunch, park admission, and pick-up/drop-off at your Seattle hotel in our luxury Mercedes van.
