Pacific Northwest

Olympic National Park is a place where the earth's beauty is on constant display, a sanctuary for the soul seeking solace in nature's grandeur.

 

The Pacific Northwest has it all: mountains, oceans, volcanoes and rainforests. Mt. Rainier offers a glaciated volcano - fire and ice - surrounded by meadows of wildflowers and ancient forests. Olympic National Park showcases the Hoh and Quinault Rainforests with their primeval forest growth, the rocky coastline with stunning scenery, and rivers that harbor salmon that return from the sea to spawn. This trip also features a day in Seattle to see the Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, the Museum of Pop Culture, and so much more!
