Olympic National Park Tour

* Now booking for 2024!

Immerse your senses in the otherworldly Hoh Rain Forest, a sea of brilliant green mosses and lichens hanging from trees hundreds of feet tall in one of the planet’s wettest places, which also creates the perfect environment for one of the quietest places on earth.  This magical landscape evades description, which is why people so often reach for fictional comparisons (e.g. FernGully, Avatar, Fangorn Forest from Lord of the Rings), but you really must experience it for yourself.

Explore the park’s dramatic Pacific coastline, filled with sea stacks, sun-bleached driftwood, forested cliffs, and tide pools where you might find sea stars, anemones, urchins and even wolf eels.

Feel the wind (which can reach up to 75 miles per hour) at Hurricane Ridge, the highest elevation area in the park at 5,242 feet.  Learn about the tectonic forces shaping this rugged landscape in conjunction with the wind and 30-35 feet of annual snowfall.

(Access to Hurricane Ridge is dependent on weather and road conditions, and may not be included on some tours)

 

Olympic National Park has been ranked as the #1 National Park in the country and is the most diverse national park in America, hands down.  This UNESCO World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve is often thought of as three parks in one with its lush temperate rain forests, towering mountain peaks, and over 70 miles of wild coastline. The park’s expansive 922,650 acres make it impossible to experience this diversity in a single day, which is the reason for offering the only 2-day tour of Olympic National Park from Seattle.  Unlike single-day tours, our tours of Olympic National Park include a visit to the legendary Hoh Rain Forest and spectacular Pacific coast beaches.

The relative isolation of the park has also led to an incredible diversity of wildlife, including the largest known population of Roosevelt Elk (the largest subspecies of Elk) in the world and Olympic Marmots, which are endemic to only the Olympic Peninsula.

Crossing the Puget Sound via ferry (included), you can soak up amazing views of both the Seattle skyline and the Olympic Peninsula.

Lodging is included in the charming small town of Forks, WA whose claims to fame include being the ​​rainiest town in the contiguous United States and the setting for Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series.

Considerations for the Olympic National Park Tour

  • Our buses have limited space for luggage, so please bring no more than you need (one carry-on-sized bag maximum) for an overnight trip. Most hotels will store luggage for you, so please take advantage of this service (if your hotel can’t accommodate luggage storage the Luggage Hero App has options in Seattle for less than $10/day)

 

  • While we strive to make our tours accessible to people of all ability levels, keep in mind that these tours will include multiple stops which require over a mile of walking to enjoy the full experience.  Although hiking is never required (and the trails are not strenuous), please keep in mind that this is the most active tour we offer, and if you have concerns, one of our other tours may be a better fit for you.

 

  • Pickups commence prior to the tour’s departure time. You should receive an updated email confirmation that includes your meeting location pickup time in the Pickup Location section. If your confirmation doesn’t include a meeting location, contact our office immediately to confirm your pickup time.

 

  • Please allow up to 5 minutes for your driver to pick you up from your scheduled pickup time. 

 

  • Please note that traffic and weather conditions can affect the routes for this tour. Traffic can be a challenge in Seattle, especially from 3pm-7pm.

 

  • Gratuities are optional and not included in the price of your tour. If you feel your Tour Guide has provided an exceptional experience, gratuities are encouraged—and welcomed—at the end of the trip.
