The Basics

Olympic National Park sprawls over 1,400 square miles (3,626 square kilometers) of green-soaked Washington wilderness. Hike through the park’s extensive network of trails, backpack along the coastline, or kayak through its many rivers. Adrenaline junkies can head to the Olympic Mountains for mountaineering or venture out on a mountain biking excursion from nearby Port Angeles. For a deeper understanding of the area, stroll through the park with a naturalist guide on a small-group Olympic National Park tour from Seattle. Or leave long lines and traffic behind on an Olympic Mountains Seaplane Tour from Lake Washington, on which you can cruise over Mt. Olympus, Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Rain Forest, and the Pacific Ocean.

Amazing day tour!
What a great tour! Karen was the best tour guide ever. We saw a mama black bear and her 3 Cubs. Scenery was amazing. Mountains, lakes, rivers and rain forest. Food was wonderful and plentiful. Highlight of our trip to Seattle area.

Olympic National Park Luxury Small-Group Day Tour with Lunch
Daniel was very informative and considerate of our needs throughout the tour. I appreciated that he made a couple stops along the way to Olympic National Park, including at Chief Seattle's gravesite, to provide historical context to the trip. He was great at pointing out the wildlife in the area and speaking to the local/natural history. It was convenient to have him pick us up and drop us off where we were or needed to be. Tasty lunch as well!

We had an awesome trip to the Olympic National Park. Our tour guide Lindsay, did an outstanding job of informing us of every element of our trip. He is very knowledgeable of the locations we visited, Crescent Lake, Ewahl River, Madison Falls and Hurricane Ridge. He is pretty knowledgeable on many environmental issues. Along with a great lunch.

Olympic National Park Luxury Small-Group Day Tour with Lunch
Daniel, our guide for the day, provided an excellent tour of Olympic National Park starting with picking us up right in front of our Airbnb, and ferry ride to Bainbridge island. Since this is a small group tour, he was able to flex the tour to our group’s desires which included easy hikes and plenty of time at each place we visited. We learned a lot and of course the views were spectacular! Highly recommended.

Hurricane Ridge Olympic National Park from Seattle
My wife and I had Janet for our guide yesterday. She was friendly, helpful, responsive to our requests, and knowledgeable. Lovely pair of ferry rides and plenty of wonderful photo opportunities despite some fog/cloud issues from time to time throughout the day. We would do the trip again with the same guide. Newer, clean SUV was very comfortable.

Best of Olympic National Park from Seattle: All-Inclusive Small-Group Day Tour
The best part of the tour was our guide who was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and interesting. We were lucky with the weather so were able to do a beautiful hike to a waterfall, see a salmon leaping up the rapids and take in the gorgeous views from Hurricane Ridge. The van was comfortable, the food provided was delicious and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Seattle!

Things to Do Near Port Angeles

Located just 20 minutes north of Olympic National Park, Port Angeles is a popular jumping-off point for wilderness activities. Don’t miss Lake Crescent, a deep glacial lake nestled in the northern foothills of the Olympic Mountains. Nearby, the famous Marymere Falls thunders 90 feet (27 meters) down a mossy, fern-laden ravine. Port Angeles is also the starting point of the Olympic Discovery Trail, a hiking-and-biking pathway that extends 140 miles (225 kilometers) west to La Push on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.
