- One of only 20 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in USA
- Explore the majesty of Olympic with a specialist guide
Among the few UNESCO World Heritage Sites in America, Olympic National Park is a natural jewel lying just outside of Seattle. Remote beaches lie alongside ancient forests, overlooked by dramatic mountain ranges, providing a golden opportunity for photographers to exploit on this thrilling Seattle gift experience. You’ll begin with a ferry journey through the scenic waterways of Puget Sound to Bainbridge Island. Travelling in a luxury van as part of a small group, you’ll then discover Hurricane Ridge, a mountain citadel affording astonishing panoramas over jagged mountain peaks and the San Juan islands.
The tour continues through open meadows where you might encounter marmots, black-tailed deer and even the occasional black bear, so binoculars are highly recommended. Your trained naturalist guide will explain the sub-alpine ecosystems you’re visiting, and equip you with snowshoes too if you’re taking this tour during the winter months! Hike trails around Lake Crescent and through old-growth forests; see the misty Marymere Falls, and pause for a delicious lunch sourced from local providers. If you want to get out in nature, this gift experience in Seattle makes for an unforgettable day out.
