Mt. Rainier National Park: Of all the mountains that surround Seattle, Mount Rainier stands boldest. On clear days, you can see the mountain from down-town, but to grasp its full grandeur and magnificence, you must see it up close. Breathtaking views wait for you on this rocky peak, which has more than 4270metres tall.
On this full-day tour to Mt Rainier from Seattle, you’ll get to appreciate the beauty of this stunning mountain. Enjoy unobstructed views of the Seattle area from the mountain. Don't forget your camera or binoculars; this 10-hour day trip is a feast for the eyes! Even when clouds in Seattle obscure the view from the city center, once you climb in altitude, Mount Rainier's Scenery is awe-inspiring.
The tour begins with a scenic bus ride, stopping at a visitor’s center before we continue into Mount Rainier National Park. Enjoy the local wine, morning tea, pastries and lunch included in this tour. Then, on our way to Paradise, we'll stop at several lookout points so you can admire the awe-inspiring scenery and natural wonders.
