Overview

Discover lava tube caves, old-growth forests, waterfalls, and more on a guided tour of Mt. St. Helens. The park’s vastness and variety of attractions can be overwhelming on your own, but by visiting with a guide you don’t miss any of the highlights. Plus, you can learn about the area’s geology, ecology, and history—much of which you might miss if visiting the park on your own.

Absolutely Amazing!!

Wow...did this trip a few weeks ago in September 2019 and it was AWESOME. If I could give it 6 stars out of 5 I would. The pre-tour communication was great and pick-up was punctual. Marcus was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and geology (I am a geologist and could fact check him on the geology, and he got it right which was impressive!!!). The itinerary was tailored to the weather conditions to get the best out of the day, and there were also some unplanned photo opportunities that Marcus was happy to stop for (the kind of thing you don't get from big bus tours). The tour packed in all the highlights from Johnston Ridge to Ape cave and we saw the mighty Mt St Helens from all sides....it was the only tour where you get to experience all of those things in one day. Thank you very much for the day Marcus....I have wanted to see the mountain for many many years as a geologist, and the tour did not disappoint!!

I would recommend this tour because this tour took us to places we would never have gone on our. Our tour guide was fanominal. He was knowledgeable about the entire Portland area, wildlife, and plant species. When the viability of the mountain was poor he made sure he took us to other places. We went into the lava tubes, walked through forrest, saw waterfalls, and we even saw elk! Overall this tour had everything in one tour!

Lori, thank you for the gracious review! Marcus said you and Phil were good sports about the lack of visibility, and adapted well to the compensatory itinerary. We hope you were able to see the volcano on the drive to Seattle the next day!
