Mt. Rainier Day Trip from Seattle
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.

Awesome experience

Our first day in Seattle was the Mt. Rainier tour with Joel. He is a super guide and attentive to the needs of his riders. His knowledge of the area was priceless. We highly recommend.

At this time of year (late September), you won't need snow gear, but good walking shoes are useful (not essential, though). Wear warm clothes - you're going to be at altitude, and it gets chilly up there!

I would say that the bus fits about 20 people. I thought this was a good number.

Radison, it was across from the airport. Although the only reason for that one was because there were other people getting picked up there as well
