Day 1

Departure City Seattle (Seatac)

We start this fantastic trip by picking up you and your fellow Adventurers in Seattle at 2PM. We'll prep you for your adventure and then enjoy a comfortable journey to our first destination....


Day 2

Mt St Helens National Monument

May 18, 1980 is a day the people of Washington will always remember. Mt St Helens itself is awe inspiring, but viewing its path of destruction and the footage from that fateful day reminds us all of Mother Nature's powerful forces. The eruption removed nearly 2000 ft off the peak, produced massive mudslides that destroyed thousands of acres of wilderness and even created two new lakes. Yet life on the mountain survived despite the violent event.

Day 3

Mt Rainier National Park

IRising 14,411 feet, Mt Rainier is an unforgettable sight whether you view it from the coastline jutting out of the lowlands, or up close from the many alpine meadows which surround the massive lone peak. Wildflowers and wildlife are abundant in this park, as well as beautiful hiking trails. There is a reason they call one of the main sections of the park Paradise!

Day 5

Rialto Beach Crescent Lake

More tide pooling and beach exploration as we hike to Hole in the wall at Rialto Beach. In the afternoon hike to Marymere Falls or dip your toes in the pristine waters of Crescent Lake. Once again, the sounds of the ocean will lull us to sleep as we camp by the sea!
