We specialize in small group day tours to Mount Rainier National Park. We pick you up at your South Puget Sound hotel or local Park-n-Ride in our clean and comfortable touring van. With our small group size, we can cater the day to your desires and offer more time at locations of your choice. During your tour you will have the opportunity to hike in old growth forests, feel the mist of thundering waterfalls, look for pika, marmot, fox, deer, bear and other wildlife; learn about glaciers and native trees, hear about the colorful people who pioneered the creation of the park, and of course, stand in awe at the sight of magnificent Mt. Rainier!

My friend and I took a private tour with Diann in April. She was responsive to my many emails and questions regarding possible restrictions due to an injury, bus routes from where we were staying, and what the hike would/could entail. Although I can't wait to see the park during summer, I loved seeing it during the transitional time between... More

Diann is such a kind person and very knowledgeable. I'm so glad we went on a tour with her because we learned so much. Our time in Mt. Rainier was so much more meaningful than it would have been if we would have just wandered around on our own.

Diann is the best. She knows so much about Mt. Rainier and the surrounding area. She was very accommodating, had great equipment to let us borrow, and was very patient with our crew. Snowshoeing was more enjoyable than we expected. Beautiful area to explore, would love to return. Very professional and fun. Thanks!

Discover Nature / Diann is the dream guide... everything you could wish for: local, informed, considerate, prepared, unfailingly positive and friendly. I can't imagine a better experience.
