Our 3-day, 2-night Mount Rainier Inn-based Tour is an opportunity to experience the best of Mount Rainier National Park and to do it with a high level of comfort and style. On our hikes we explore shimmering alpine lakes, abundant wildlflower blooms, and tumbling waterfalls on the shoulders of North America’s most famous volcano. Mt. Rainier stands at 14,411 feet tall, and is the most heavily glaciated peak in the contiguous United States. In the evenings we will dine in style and relax in comfort at a historic park lodge, and enjoy three hand-picked hikes that represent the best Mount Rainier has to offer. We circumnavigate the mountain and enjoy views from every side on this three day adventure.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL 2
Scale of 1-5. 1 is least difficult; 5 is most difficult
This trip follows mostly well maintained trails and requires carrying a light (~10lbs) day pack, but does offer the opportunity to gain significant elevation in a day. Although we’ve rated the max elevation at 1,800+ feet, our hike to Camp Muir on Mount Rainier can include as much as 4,600 feet of elevation gain if we’re able to reach the famous mountaineer’s camp.
