This Olympic National Park camping tour is an opportunity to hike and explore two lush, temperate rainforests and the exciting and rugged Pacific coastline of the Olympic Peninsula, while enjoying the comforts of a front-country basecamp right on the ocean. Each day brings new sights and adventures as we explore the old-growth forests, dramatic sea stacks, stunning blue-green rivers, ever-changing tide pools, and long stretches of sandy beach right at our campsite. You’ll be able to relax and let us take care of everything, so you can spend your time enjoying the sights of this unique region, photographing wild animals, searching for elusive banana slugs, identifying unique wild flowers, or simply relaxing on the beach.
Each morning we’ll set out on a variety of select day hikes to introduce you to several amazing ecosystems found in the Pacific Northwest, replete with cultural and natural history, endless views, and astounding biodiversity: glacier and snow-fed rivers and streams, towering western red cedar forests, steep sea cliffs carved by the ocean, whales, otters, bald eagles and more! In the afternoons, we’ll head back to our camp right along the Pacific Ocean to relax, enjoy a swim in the ocean, read a book on the beach, or go for a walk along the bluff. At night, we’ll enjoy a wonderful, outdoor meal as we watch the sun set over the ocean, and relax around a campfire as we recount our daily adventures.
