Olympic National Park Nature Tours

Olympic National Park Nature Tours

Tours in Olympic National Park

The Peninsula Tour is a full day tour that visits multiple locations in Olympic National Park.  We can travel to any area you choose.  The suggested route is to visit Hurricane Ridge on top of the mountains, where you will have good chances to see deer, mountain goats, marmots, chipmunks and birds.  We will visit the Elwha River valley, where elk reside and the largest dam removal project in the United States occurred.  The third stop is to visit the rainforest to see old growth trees and waterfalls.  At each of these locations, there are opportunities for short walks and if time allows, visit additional locations.

From the ocean to the mountains and the rainforest in between, there are five major life zones in this this amazing ecosystem! There is a lot to see and learn. This is a great tour to see as much of the park as you can in one day.

Private Tours of the Olympic Peninsula

We offer custom and private tours.   Whether your interest is seeing a particular animal, learning about the life of a tree or expanding your general knowledge about Olympic National Park, we can design a custom tour for you. The Peninsula Tour involves more time in a vehicle and the Olympic Ecology Walk spends more time on the trails, but each tour visits the same locations. We can customize this how you please.
