One of the most stunning landscapes on the planet - Mt. St. Helens is like nowhere you’ve been before. A 'must-see' ecosystem, our all-inclusive small-group tour (ten travelers or fewer) from Seattle is the ideal way to visit the National Monument. A lovely, professional naturalist guide (we're TripAdvisor 'Hall of Fame'!) will tailor your day to you. Visit the Johnston Ridge observatory, choose from walks and hikes, and learn about the volcano's infamous 1980 eruption. Enjoy coffee, tea, & breakfast bakery, a gourmet picnic lunch accompanied by local wine, and snacks and beverages throughout the day.If you're staying in downtown Seattle (hotel, AirBNB, rental, etc) we'll pick you up! We'll call you the day prior to the trip to arrange a specific time at your accommodations. We can also arrange pickups near SeaTac or Tacoma upon request.
