Enjoy a fun-filled, day-long tour of the breathtakingly beautiful wonderland within Mount Rainier National Park. You'll depart by bus from Seattle in the friendly and knowledgeable hands of an expert tour guide, and head to the new Paradise Jackson Visitor Center, at an elevation of 5,400 feet, where you'll have time for lunch and a quick hike. Tour-goers rave about the gorgeous sights and vistas, including alpine flower meadows, magnificent rivers, glacial moraines, mountain lakes, waterfalls and wildlife on this eight-to-ten hour tour, and the bus will make at least four stops to give you an opportunity to explore and take pictures while your guide points out areas and items of interest.
See the tour schedule.
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 butts at any time of year.
Please dress for the weather and be prepared for cool-cold temperatures on the mountain.
Hiking shoes or boots are recommended.
