Tour description provided by Viator

Experience Mount Rainier's highlights on a day tailored to you. Our TripAdvisor "Hall of Fame" guides run the only day tours permitted to explore more than a mile from the park road as the National Park is ecologically important & delicate. The U.S. Park Service restricts other tour companies - our competitors offer "road tours." We're lovely & professional nature educators (not just bus drivers) that have dedicated their lives to artful travel.Our all-inclusive small group day trip is limited to just 10 travelers. Sleep in a little - we'll bring coffee, bakery, fruit, and tea. Don't waste daylight waiting in line at a busy lunch counter or concession stand - we'll bring a local, organic, family-style lunch, local wine, and we'll eat outside! We’ll bring snacks, water and sparkling water for the day. Don’t worry about a thing.Savor Mt. Rainier's hidden beauty on foot with waterfall walks, giant trees, alpine vistas, wildflower meadows, and wildlife on our all-inclusive day trip.
