About Yonder Sky

Yonder Sky helps visitors experience the beauty and majesty of the Pacific Northwest through small group day tours and customizable adventures originating in Seattle.

Our name, in addition to evoking the intrigue of what lies beyond, represents the opening words of the only recorded speech attributed to Chief siʔał (Seattle), the Duwamish and Suquamish leader who became the namesake of our city.

We started this business by asking ourselves a simple question: “What would our dream job look like?” When we combined all our answers – traveling, spending time outdoors, being physically active, hosting and entertaining, and sharing the places we love – launching Yonder Sky felt like the only logical decision.

All our tours are authentic, local travel experiences, just like we would enjoy with our friends and family. We don’t dabble in touristy gimmicks or promote attractions we wouldn’t visit ourselves. We’re guided in everything we do by an unwavering commitment to always do the right thing by our guests, our communities, and our planet. You can read more about our tour experience here.

If your travels bring you to Seattle, we’d be thrilled to have you as our guest!
