Seattle One-Day Private Trips

Private Full Day Tour:

Mt. Rainier National Park

Stroll through the old-growth forests near Longmire, where Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar trees dwarf visitors and the bubbling of natural springs fill the crisp air. Experience waterfalls and big mountain views as you wind to higher elevations. In the summer, pick wild berries on a sub-alpine hiking trail. In the winter, take advantage of Paradise’s legendary snowfall (and the winter solitude) on an introductory snowshoe trail.

One of the most stunning landscapes on the planet—Mt. St. Helens is like nowhere you’ve been before. Once in the Volcanic Monument, you’ll traverse the barren landscapes, stopping for a peaceful hike along the Hummocks Trail or to take in the still blue waters of Coldwater Lake.

San Juan Island

The San Juan archipelago harbors mythical beauty amid its islands, bluffs and seascapes; its regional historical relevance is just as stunning! Spend the day on our San Juan Island Tour discovering this mysterious landscape with a naturalist guide. As the morning ferry glides toward Friday Harbor, keep an eye out for sea life and birds. This hour-long ferry ride will keep you glued to your window or deck railing as you slip between islands. Once on San Juan Island, fantastic walking options, birding spots, and whale watching from shore will keep you busy. If the islands weren’t lightly populated–the whole place would make an incredible National Park! Picnic with local fare and a glass of wine, then explore historic British and American “Pig War” camps. Explore the rocky coastline and old lighthouse of Lime Kiln State Park; bring your binoculars–it’s generally considered one of the best places on the planet to watch for whales from shore! As the sun begins to set–hop into a seaplane for a gorgeous flight back to Seattle.

Private Full Day Tour:

North Cascades National Park

Adventuring from Seattle into the North Cascades National Park is a unique and unforgettable experience as this is one of the least visited and most rugged parks in the US. It is nicknamed the “American Alps” because while hiking through the park’s alpine meadows or along its high, rocky ridges visitors observe a seemingly endless sea of jagged peaks and glaciers. Yet unlike the Alps, the North Cascade Mountains harbor an abundance of wildlife including mountain goats, black bears, grizzlies, wolves, and wolverines, with very few human inhabitants. Anyone interested in wilderness preservation and escaping the humdrum of city life will relish in the scale and grandeur of this protected landscape. However, the small communities outside the park are also well worth exploring for their organic berry farms and wineries!

The perfect deep-dive in a (nearly) perfect city.  Food, culture, and nature are what make this city (and this tour) so easy to love!  Morning coffee, a lighthouse hike in Discovery Park, a visit to a local libation maker, Kerry Park, the Ballard locks…should we keep going?  It won’t take you long to fall in love with Seattle–it will take you a while to take pictures of every beautiful corner of our city on this tour…
