Mt. Rainier Day Trip from Seattle
US$134.99
Overview
With massive glaciers, powerful waterfalls, and alpine meadows, Mount Rainier National Park is among one of Washington's most spectacular reserves, but it can be hard to get to, especially in heavy traffic. Visiting the active volcano on a guided tour lets you focus on the views while your guide takes on the hassle of driving. Plus your guide knows some of the best stops to make at some of the most beautiful places in the park.
What to Expect
Meet a guide at your Seattle hotel, and then travel to Mount Rainier National Park, learning a bit about the local area along the way.

Pause a the Longmire Museum and National Park Inn, and keep your camera out at Christine Falls, which frames one of the classic views of Mount Rainier. Walk up the Nisqually River to stand at the foot of Narada Falls—at 188 feet (57 meters), it towers over Niagara Falls.

The scenic highlight of the day is Paradise, a visitor center that's surrounded by alpine meadows, ideal for spotting wildlife. From here, you have the option to add a snowshoe or sledding trip if conditions allow, or simply take in the gorgeous views from Reflection Lake.

Before returning to Seattle, enter the visitor center to learn the story behind Mount Rainier, and then finish the day with drop-off at your original departure point.

Great experience

This is one of best places i have visited in recent time. After the Istanbul trip i thought of exploring more nearby my own place and Mt. Rainier has lived up to the expectation. The tour guide was helpful and we had a great time.

Wonderful tour

This tour was really fun, it was a shame we didn't get to see the top of Ranier because of weather issues but all in all a very good tour. It's a very long day, 12 hours, but our driver "Joe" was just wonderful, very...More

If you’re a serious hiker, this might not be the best option for you. The tour tries to cover most of the park’s highlights so there’s lots of driving and getting on/off the bus. We did have about an hour of free time at... More

The tour picks up from several hotels in the downtown area and near the airport. If you are staying elsewhere, the default pickup spot is the Museum of Popular Art - Mopop
