Our Olympic National Park tour from Seattle takes us to the enchanting and untouched Olympic Mountain Range. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1981, Olympic National Park is remarkable for its pristine condition and diverse ecology. Long protected from the resource extraction that cleared much of the west, the park is an outstanding glimpse into Washington’s natural past. Glacial peaks, wildflower meadows, old growth forests, and crystal-clear lakes make an Olympic National Park tour a rewarding and must-do day trip from Seattle.
“Around a three-hour ride by car from Seattle, [Olympic National Park] feels much farther, as if you have passed into an otherworldly realm.”
– Meghan O’Rourke, The New York Times
Come join one of our professional local guides as we visit Hurricane Ridge, the site of sweeping vistas and home to Olympic’s most exciting wildlife. We’ll learn how humans have interacted with nature at the Elwha River, site of the world’s largest-ever dam removal project. And we’ll witness stunning Lake Crescent, a long-time tourist hotspot. Along the way, our professional local guides will elevate the experience through stops at historic landmarks that help tell the story of this dynamic and enchanting landscape.
