Pickup details

We'll pick you up where you're staying in Downtown Seattle including any hotel, Airbnb, hostels, and the port. If you are staying outside our legal downtown pick-up zone, we are happy to meet you at our default pick up location—The Sheraton Grand Hotel. We offer pick-up on Bainbridge Island or in Port Angeles upon request. We will call/text/email the afternoon of day prior to your tour to confirm your pick-up location and exact pick-up time. No need to check-in before we contact you (unless you have a question, of course!).

What To Expect

After being picked up at your hotel in downtown Seattle, climb into a luxury vehicle and begin the journey to Olympic National Park.

The park features snow-covered mountains, rain forests, and the majestic Pacific coastline. There are remote beaches, plus the country’s oldest forests and one of Washington’s most dramatic mountain ranges. The Olympic Peninsula is home to some of the greatest wilderness left in the United States, including sixteen species of plants and animals that evolved here—and nowhere else. Enjoy short, interpretive nature walks throughout the day. If there is enough snow for snowshoeing, the guide will bring all the necessary equipment.

Learn forest ecology and the geology of the stunning Olympic Mountains. Weather permitting, drive up to Hurricane Ridge for incredible mountain views and spot wildlife and waterfalls along the scenic routes. Visit the pristine waters of stunning Crescent Lake in the northern foothills of the Olympic Mountains. This lake was carved by glaciers, so it’s an ideal spot for those in search of natural beauty. On days when weather closes access to Hurricane Ridge, visit the sandy coastline of the Dungeness Wildlife Refuge or spend more time among the forests and waterfalls of the Elwha Valley.

At midday, a gourmet picnic is provided. Please see the Itinerary section for menu information.

We knew we could navigate the Seattle area ourselves. However, the mountains and surrounding areas were challenging and we really wanted to get a taste of the beautiful area! Our Viator tour was worth every penny!! We had two ferry rides which allowed us to snap some great photos of the Seattle skyline. We snowshoed Hurricane Ridge which was my number one objective for our day. We also visited a waterfall and a wonderful beach. We saw a totem pole receiving its finishing touches. We had a great breakfast, a wonderful picnic lunch and some yummy snacks throughout the day. We happened upon an area where trees were being cleared. Very cool to see the trees being packed up and headed to their new life. Our guide, Sean, was delightful. He was VERY knowledgeable and taught us much about the Olympic National Park and the Olympic National Forest. He also had some wonderful stories about the area and how names and places came to be. Our photos from the day are amazing! Absolutely, 100% recommend this tour to truly enjoy the mountains surrounding Seattle.

Must-do to see Olympic in one day
Brenna_M, May 2024
I would absolutely recommend this tour. Marty, my tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable about the local history and the local ecosystem. He was willing to tailor and adjust the experience to his group depending on what people were interested in, their fitness level, and any other needs they had. He was personable and made each person feel welcome and important. The tour itself included a variety of experiences in the park from mountain tops to moss-covered forests. For the amount of time we had, the tour gives guests the best highlights of the park. Also, there were snacks and beverages always available, and the catered lunch was delicious and healthy. There were also plenty of bathroom breaks. If you only have one day to see Olympic National Park, then this is the tour you should take, and you would be lucky to have Marty as your thoughtful guide.
Snow trekking to hiking in the woods in one day!
Debra_W, May 2024
This tour was the perfect ending to our trip to the northwest. Marty was our guide and we were lucky to have him show a few highlights of Olympic National Park. Walking through this beautiful park we saw waterfalls and amazing trees and flora as well as the Crystal Lake. Loved trekking in the snow on Hurricane Ridge!
Beautiful
Paul_K, May 2024
Our guide, Mel made the trip truly memorable plus we had a great group and saw everything we were hoping for. Plenty of bathroom stops and didn’t have to walk too much.
Olympic Park
Sarah_H, May 2024
The views of the mountains were amazing. The guides were fun and knowledgeable. Good quality food and drink was provided which was very welcome. Well worth a visit using this company
Great for nature learning
Ella_L, May 2024
We really enjoyed the snowshoeing up the mountain and seeing the tide pools along the coast which was helped by Evan, who was a great tour guide and was very informative. We learned a quite a lot about the plants and animals as well as how to treat rashes from ivy. Unfortunately the waterfall was closed the day we went (it was a long drive) but we still had a good time.
Awesome tour
Katherine_M, May 2024
Had an awesome tour guide, Marty, lead our group. We stopped at hurricane ridge, crescent lake and then did a hike to a waterfall. We got to see snow and forest, it was great. Marty was prepared with hiking poles for the snow, had awesome snacks for us during the day and a great lunch as well. Everything was very well thought out. Highly recommend this tour company and Marty specifically!
Absolutely amazing day trip!
Melissa_P, Apr 2024
Evan S. was our guide. A wealth of knowledge about the area, made the trip fun, great interaction, yummy lunch, and the sights were just incredible. A must visit and experience!
Had a great time walking...
Kristjan_H, Mar 2024
Had a great time walking in snowshoe on Hurricane ridge with the group, well planned to begin there to see the view, started some raindrops as we left
Great day!!
Erin_M, Mar 2024
Marty was great!! Pick up was on time. Was initially concerned about cost but in retrospect was totally worth it. Marty was welcoming, put us at ease, and a wealth of knowledge regarding the areas and history of area. Marty let us know what was planned and what to expect regarding difficulty of hike / terrain as needed. Locations he took us to were great, loved the diversity of each site. My adult daughter got to see a tide pool.lol Lunch, snacks and of course cookie were great thank you to your caterer. Can't really improve because weather was great as well.

Well organized trip. Martin is an experienced and knowledgeable guide. The food he brought was surprisingly delicious. Highly recommended.
Lovely Guide Karen + Immaculate Winter Forest vibes
LuoQi_C, Mar 2024
My experience with Evergreen tours was great! Pre-experience, the team at Evergreen was patient and informative in preparing us for the trip, providing quick and good waterproof boots rental for our snow-shoe activity. Our guide, Karen, was energetic and lovely, which made our tour experience so much better. She was knowledgeable about the places we went, and her passion for nature was contagious. The tour also provided snacks and drinks throughout the trip, and made sure we were comfortable the whole way even through the 2 hour commute there and back!
Great time in Olympic National Park.
Derric_H, Mar 2024
Karen was an excellent guide. Knowledgeable and kind. She showed great respect and appreciation for the natural environment surrounding us. Also? The snowshoeing experience was incredible!
Perfect
Karla_D, Mar 2024
Karen Woodworth did an amazing job with this tour. She was very informative and answered all the questions we had as a group. The whole day was made special because she took the time to get to know all of us and helped us out during the journey. The whole day was full of snacks and drinks and we were never left wanting. This was our first and best experience on a tour. Will definitely recommend to anybody else.
Highly Recommended
Evelyn_J, Jan 2024
This was my second tour with Evergreen Escapes and I had an amazing time as usual. The tour guide Marty was very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. The catered lunch and the snacks throughout the tour were delicious. We saw some main highlights of the park while learning the park's history, and had a lot of fun. I highly recommend booking with this company.

Worth the expense
Yolanda_M, Jan 2024
Karen offered us an unforgettable experience. We began our day with a punctual pickup in a spacious van. We were provided with a light breakfast on the ferry. My highlight of the trip was snowshoeing in Olympic National Park. We were also taken throughout the park to experience the best of it. On our way back, we were able to see the beautiful night skyline of Seattle via the ferry. I highly recommend this all day outing.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
A perfect day rounded out by a perfect view of the city from the ferry! I love that peaceful boat ride to wrap up a very full and fulfilling adventure. Thank you for tkaing the time to share your experience with future travelers! Kind regards, Kenzi | Evergreen Escapes
Highly recommendable
SOFIAE_M, Jan 2024
Our guide Martin M., was awesome. He made every moment enjoyable because he listened to our questions and prepared a very healthy/delicious meal that we enjoyed on a picnic in the middle of the forest. At that moment, I felt like I was in a movie because we were in a beautiful group enjoying a meal had a lovely table with silverware and everything in the middle of a beautiful forest close to the river. We visited Hurricane Ridge. Also, we visited the most extensive dam removal on Elwha River, and learned the wonders of nature to repair and heal human destruction. We enjoyed the incredible view of the Olympic Mountains, and even though I decided not to make the walk on the snow for personal reasons, the rest of the group had a fantastic time with the wonders of the trail. In the meantime, I also enjoyed being in such a magnificent landscape. We also visited a park on the Coast with beautiful views and a deeply peaceful experience. The views of the trip were so enjoyable that the 12 hours went very fast. It was like a dream to be grateful my whole life.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Thank you so much Sofia, for taking the time to share such a kind and thorough review of your experience with Marty at Olympic National Park! It is such a magical destination, I am happy to hear you enjoyed ever minute of the day. Kind regards, Kenzi | Evergreen Escapes
An Amazing Experience!
Tom_R, Nov 2023
We really immersed ourselves in nature! Mal is a great tour guide. The sites were amazing, lunch was delicious, I learned a lot, and we had a great group. It was also a helpful lesson in being present and allowing hiking to be an experience that engages all of the senses.
