Imagine a Scenario...

It's another beautiful Friday afternoon in Seattle and you're excited to start brainstorming some outdoor activities for the weekend. Maybe some beach volleyball at Alki, a picnic at Gas Works, or stand-up paddle boarding at Greenlake. All awesome options! But guess what Seattle? Your menu of outdoor activities just multiplied!

How about hiking amongst the Olympic Mountains at 5,000 feet elevation atop Hurricane Ridge? A riverside hike through old growth forests to the iconic Sol Duc Falls? Or a big lake day? “Big” meaning to explore one of the deepest glacier-fed lakes in Washington State at Lake Crescent. We're excited to introduce our Seattle-based Olympic National Park Group Hiking Tours, creating the ultimate outdoor daytrip from Seattle!
