Mt. Rainier Day Trip from Seattle
From US$134.99
With massive glaciers, powerful waterfalls, and alpine meadows, Mount Rainier National Park is among one of Washington's most spectacular reserves, but it can be hard to get to, especially in heavy traffic. Visiting the active volcano on a guided tour lets you focus on the views while your guide takes on the hassle of driving. Plus your guide knows some of the best stops to make at some of the most beautiful places in the park.
What to Expect
Meet a guide at your Seattle hotel, and then travel to Mount Rainier National Park, learning a bit about the local area along the way.

Pause a the Longmire Museum and National Park Inn, and keep your camera out at Christine Falls, which frames one of the classic views of Mount Rainier. Walk up the Nisqually River to stand at the foot of Narada Falls—at 188 feet (57 meters), it towers over Niagara Falls.

The scenic highlight of the day is Paradise, a visitor center that's surrounded by alpine meadows, ideal for spotting wildlife. From here, you have the option to add a snowshoe or sledding trip if conditions allow, or simply take in the gorgeous views from Reflection Lake.

Before returning to Seattle, enter the visitor center to learn the story behind Mount Rainier, and then finish the day with drop-off at your original departure point.

Make Sure You Know Your Hotel Pick-Up Time!!!

Our day trip to Mt. Rainier was absolutely fabulous! The park was breath taking! This was my favorite day by far for my week long trip to Seattle. HOWEVER, on my vouchers for this trip, we had a hotel pick-up time of 8AM. So, we...More

Didn’t love it...

The core of the tour was fine. I enjoyed getting close to the mountain, stopping for pictures and putting on the snow shoes for a little while. But, the 5 hour (round trip) drive was not relaxing with the driver talking (on a microphone) for...More

I’m sure this tour is great, when you can actually experience it. Apparently, the destination (Paradise, WA) can be inaccessible if it snows and, apparently, the guide won’t know this until you are at the park (I don’t know why a phone call wouldn’t be...More

It was similar to a large hotel shuttle, probably 20-25.
