Tour description provided by Viator

Join our TripAdvisor Hall of Fame guides as we dive deep into Olympic National Park’s highlights on this all-inclusive day trip. The park is a UNESCO World-Heritage Site remarkable for its ecological diversity and expansive wilderness. This naturalist-guided tour takes you across Puget Sound by ferry and up Bainbridge Island to the Hood Canal. Visit Hurricane Ridge to watch deer graze in the meadows or feel the snow crunch beneath your feet on a winter snowshoe. Continue west to glacially-carved Lake Crescent, where you’ll explore the fern-filled forests that line its shores, trekking through giant trees to Marymere Falls. We'll tailor the day to your small group! 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. 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.
