The Best Tours from Portland and Seattle.

Passionate & Professional Guides, Amazing Small Group Trips!


Travelers often leave us (and other travelers) feedback on their experiences. We use it to continuously improve our service.


We have deep roots in the Pacific Northwest. Outside of traveling — there’s nowhere else we’d rather be!


We work long hours; it hardly feels like work to share our home and our passion with travelers from around the planet.

A few of our favorite trips…

So many good options can make it tough to decide how to spend a day in the Pacific Northwest.  Here are three of our most popular trips to get you started!

Mt. Rainier from Seattle

Perhaps the true symbol of the Northwest, Mt. Rainier is not to be missed. Old-growth forests, glacier-fed streams and a snowy crown!

Columbia Gorge from Portland

Waterfalls tumble into view around every corner of this epic landscape. Add a bit of regional wine and it’s a recipe for unforgettable!

Olympic N.P. from Seattle

One of America’s finest remaining sections of expansive wilderness. Sweeping ridge top views, waterfalls, big trees and glacial lakes!


We work hard to be the very best guides in the Pacific Northwest.

We’re a small, award-winning travel company that blends jaw-dropping natural wonders, outdoor adventure, first-rate customer service and local experiences into relaxing small-group tours that depart from Portland, OR and Seattle, WA.

We’re a bit different…

We spend our workdays trying to figure out how to better serve explorers of the Pacific Northwest. This place is our home and we’re committed to preserving what we have and sharing her stories with everyone else. We think that there are a few things that set us apart from your other options:


Our guides have street cred: it’s our mission to understand our places, share the right stories and listen well to the folks that elect to travel with us. Want to visit a national park with a professional biologist or naturalist? We do too!


For us, getting to know travelers from around the planet is a huge benefit of our work! This isn’t another bus tour – you’ll know your guide well and they’ll know you. Exchange ideas or have coffee with a few people from all over the place!  Have a larger group?  Let us know here!


When you book with Evergreen Escapes we go out of the way to make sure the details are taken care of. Full-day trips feature beautiful meals; all trips feature local coffee, snacks, and water (play your cards right and we’ll bring local wine!).


The best way to experience our places is by being in them on foot. Sure, we need to drive from place to place — once we’re there we pay attention to what you want to do with your day and then we make sure you experience the nuances of our home.

Traveler Testimonials

We know we work hard but don’t take our word for it – here’s what our guests say:

We had a blast on this tour! Spencer was super knowledgeable as a fifth generation Oregonian…great stories about growing up in such a beautiful place. My husband and I hate going on big tour buses, it feels so impersonal, so we chose to do this small group tour even though it’s usually more expensive (but worth it!).


Falls & Wine, 2018

I’ve been blessed to take a great number of tours over the past few years and this tour was about as good as I’ve seen. The pacing was perfect. We never felt rushed but never lagged either. Sean was as knowledgeable, pleasant and accommodating a guide as I’ve ever had. It was truly a perfect day. I highly recommend Evergreen Escapes!


Olympic NP, 2018

We booked the Portland City Tour and were lucky to get Paul. Even though we were the only people to book the tour on this particular day, they did not cancel or try to reschedule. Instead, they gave us a full private tour. The tour was very informative and you get to see the entire city! I would absolutely recommend this to start your trip to Portland.


Explore Portland, 2018

Our tour guide, Katherine, could not have been better! She was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and truly made our experience what it was. Katherine’s background knowledge about the area, mountaineering, nature, and animals was quite impressive. This tour is highly recommended and totally worth the cost.
