At 14,410 feet above sea level, beautiful and majestic Mt Rainier is an icon in the Washington landscape—an active volcano and the most glaciated peak in the United States, creating six major rivers.

This day trip nature tour to hike and/or snowshoe around Mt. Rainier National Park begins with a Seattle hotel pickup followed by a scenic drive to the park in a luxury vehicle. Upon arrival, enjoy Seattle coffee and pastries before starting the trek along the Nisqually Vista Trail. Be on the lookout for wildlife wandering around the mountain at any time.

This all-day Mt Rainier tour includes frequent stops to take pictures and enjoy light snacks. A picnic lunch of locally sourced, organic foods (grilled chicken or salmon, sandwich or wrap, with a grain or green salad and water or soda) is also provided midday. 

At the end of the day, it’s back down the mountain to take a relaxing return trip to Seattle.

Great experience all around. Couldn’t ask for a better day! Jan, our guide was awesome! She was the driver, teacher, photographer, chef just to name a few of the service she provided. The group was small so I felt like I was just hanging out with friends I just happen to meet on this tour. Thankful for a memorable day!

Since the Mountain Rainier was closed, we changed our plan to National Olympic Park. The trip includes a variety of geographic scenery, the falls in forest, beautiful lakes and coast. Sean is a professional and knowledgeable tour guide. He could introduce the history and fun anecdotes along the trip. He is also very responsible and careful towards the guests. I actually booked the trip the evening before the trip. Luckily, the operator and the tour guide catch me up without any problems. I do enjoy the trip a lot.

My fiancé and I had an awesome experience! Our guide Sean was excellent, informative and made our tour of Mt. Rainier extraordinary! He was there each step of the way; over the mountain, through the old growth forest and waterfalls to make sure each person in our group was having a good time. The booking process was easy and the tour company Evergreen Escapes was very helpful in answering any questions. I would highly recommend this tour and tour company. Ask for Sean when you book!

You have to love what you do otherwise it wouldn't be joyful for you and this goes double for the hospitality business. My two tour guides - peyton (olympic national park) and clay (mt rainer) absolutely love what they do and it shows. Kudos for evergreen escapes for finding such talented people. Different food options were exquisite and sourced locally - trail snacks, cookies, coffee and lunch- salad, pasta and chicken w/ local red wine was fulfilling and esp important on the second day after the hike. Day one with peyton was fun - he has a collection of dad jokes, corny jokes and fun family friendly cringe worthy jokes, car games which made the car ride so fun. The tour itself was gorgeous, weather was cooperative - it only rained long enough for us to scramble to put on our rain jackets and it stopped. The hike was mild, lunch delicious, waterfall breathtaking, forest hike tranquil.The group was amazing as well. All in all well worth the time and money though we could have spent longer on the hike - it doesn't take away anything. Day 2 with Clay was comparatively strenuous as the group as a whole decided we wanted a longer and higher hike experience which ended up being a 2.5 hour, 5.5 mile hike with 1250 ft elevation. We had fun deciphering what mushrooms,birds and animals we saw and on the ride back - everyone got a quick shut eye

Our Mt Rainer National Park Day Tour with our sweet knowledgeable guide Elk was the perfect ending for our trip in Seattle. My husband & I are well taken cared, & very satisfied. Safe comfortable driving & 5 star hotel grade healthy delicious lunch, snack that included in the tour gives us energy to walk the trails & explore the beauty scenery of Mt Rainer. We got to see a fox relaxing by the roadside. Marmots family chilling out in the misty fog/cloud. Elk Well prepared extra jackets/walking sticks really ease our worry of walking up & down in the rain/woods seeing thousand year old Fir tree, & Several Gracious water falls. History & Stories of Mt Rainer, local town connect us with Washington State. This trip will be a forever memory that worth to talk about for many years by my husband & Me. I highly recommend Evergreen Escape.

Loved this trip! Preston Rodriguez was an excellent guide, lots of knowledge and an engaging personality. The day was perfect -- beautiful views, lovely walks, even saw two black bears (very close!), marmots and other critters. Also a very nice group, just 8 of us and all interesting people. Would recommend this company for other tours!
