Overview

We specialize in small group day tours to Mount Rainier National Park. We pick you up at your South Puget Sound hotel or local Park-n-Ride in our clean and comfortable touring van. With our small group size, we can cater the day to your desires and offer more time at locations of your choice. During your tour you will have the opportunity to hike in old growth forests, feel the mist of thundering waterfalls, look for pika, marmot, fox, deer, bear and other wildlife; learn about glaciers and native trees, hear about the colorful people who pioneered the creation of the park, and of course, stand in awe at the sight of magnificent Mt. Rainier!
