    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Snoqualmie Falls, 6501 Railroad Ave SE, Snoqualmie, WA 98065-9687

    Your full day incredible Mount Rainier helicopter flight and hiking combo tour is divided into three parts: 35-minute helicopter flight, 4-hour ground tour with naturalist walk, private vehicle transport, and a catered meal.  This tour is available for a morning or afternoon departure.  Both tours include all of the same incredible experiences.  

    Helicopter Flight

    In a 4-seater Robinson R44 or 7-seater Airbus H130, you'll soar over the Mt. Rainier Wilderness, getting up close with peaks, glaciers, waterfalls and thundering rivers that would take days of strenuous hiking to reach from the ground.  Between Mt. Rainier and Seattle, your pilot will even take you on a close flyby of Snoqualmie Falls and you'll glide over the Cascade foothills' lakes, rivers and dense forests.  You'll enjoy incredible photography opportunities with a bird's eye view of all of this stunning scenery.  On the clearest days, you'll also catch glimpses of Mt. Baker, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens, and even Mt. Hood in Oregon--5 of the greatest Pacific Northwest Peaks in a day!  As you fly along, your expert pilot will point out the sites and maneuver the helicopter to offer the best views.  

    Duration: 35 minutes

    Stop At: Mount Rainier National Park, 39000 State Rt 706 E, Ashford, WA

    Once on the ground at a secluded location surrounded by plunging valleys, your ground tour guide will take you to experience the best of the National Park that you won't get to see from the helicopter: walk through a towering old growth forest, gaze across wildflower fields that burst with color in the summer sun, and feel the cool spray of mist from crashing waterfalls. 

    You'll learn about the mountain's geologic history, diverse climate and stunning glaciology.  On a moderate hike, you'll breath in the freshest mountain air and search for wildlife in the forest and sub-alpine slopes.  Stopping frequently to marvel at the scenery around us, countless photography opportunities await you around each bend in the trail.  Best of all, you'll share this experience with a tiny group of just up to 5 other guests.  The ground tour combines travel on foot and via private vehicle along the Park's roads. 

    We want you to eat well during your full day excursion with us.  Your tour with us includes a delicious, beautifully catered meal in the midst of Mt. Rainier's natural splendor.  Guests joining our morning tour will enjoy lunch in the Park before departing back to Seattle via helicopter.  Guests arriving via helicopter in the afternoon will be treated to a full afternoon tea and canapés before returning to Seattle via private ground transport.

    Duration: 4 hours
