Mount Rainier Tour from Seattle

Mount Rainier Tour from Seattle

Enjoy a fun-filled day at Mount Rainier National Park.

Heading south from Seattle, you’ll enter through the Nisqually park entrance and continue up the scenic, winding road to the new Paradise Jackson Visitor Center at an elevation of 5,400 feet.

Mt. Rainier will delight you with its vast expanses of pristine old-growth evergreen forests, gorgeous subalpine flower meadows and spectacular alpine vistas. Our nation’s fifth-oldest national park features magnificent rivers, mountain lakes, waterfalls and wildlife, and boasts the greatest single-peak glacial system in the United States. Glaciers radiate from the summit of the 14,411-foot dormant volcano, many of which are visible from your tour.

The seasons, weather, and elevation partially determine what you’ll see on your tour. Paradise is usually snow-free by July, with alpine flowers appearing shortly thereafter. Mount Rainier itself may be shrouded in clouds at any time of year.

      The only negative for this trip was the time it took to get there. John our tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job. The scenery was terrific. Too bad we didn't have more time to spend at the park.
