The park is a UNESCO World-Heritage Site remarkable for its ecological diversity and expansive wilderness. This naturalist-guided tour takes you across Puget Sound by ferry and up Bainbridge Island to the Hood Canal. Visit Hurricane Ridge to watch deer graze in the meadows or feel the snow crunch beneath your feet on a winter snowshoe. Continue west to glacially-carved Lake Crescent, where you’ll explore the fern-filled forests that line its shores, trekking through giant trees to Marymere Falls. We'll tailor the day to your small group!

Our all-inclusive small group day trip is limited to just 10 travelers. Sleep in a little - we'll bring coffee, bakery, fruit, and tea. We'll bring a local, organic, family-style lunch, local wine, and we'll eat outside! We’ll bring snacks, water and sparkling water for the day. Don’t worry about a thing.

Guide was the best. Beat our expectations. 0lympic National Park is a must see. Snow shoeing Hurricane Ridge is a check box to do.

You have to love what you do otherwise it wouldn't be joyful for you and this goes double for the hospitality business.
My two tour guides - peyton (olympic national park) and clay (mt rainer) absolutely love what they do and it shows. Kudos for evergreen escapes for finding such talented people.
Different food options were exquisite and sourced locally - trail snacks, cookies, coffee and lunch- salad, pasta and chicken w/ local red wine was fulfilling and esp important on the second day after the hike.
Day one with peyton was fun - he has a collection of dad jokes, corny jokes and fun family friendly cringe worthy jokes, car games which made the car ride so fun. The tour itself was gorgeous, weather was cooperative - it only rained long enough for us to scramble to put on our rain jackets and it stopped.
The hike was mild, lunch delicious, waterfall breathtaking, forest hike tranquil.The group was amazing as well. All in all well worth the time and money though we could have spent longer on the hike - it doesn't take away anything.
Day 2 with Clay was comparatively strenuous as the group as a whole decided we wanted a longer and higher hike experience which ended up being a 2.5 hour, 5.5 mile hike with 1250 ft elevation. We had fun deciphering what mushrooms,birds and animals we saw and on the ride back - everyone got a quick shut eye

PREFACE: We have always had good luck with Viator, and looked into options while we were in Seattle /Tacoma for a family member's wedding. This tour, like so many Viator activities, provides pick ups from different hotels. The formal tour starts in Seattle, but we started in Port Angeles, just outside the Olympic National Park (ONP) entrance ... closer to our wedding hotel. As expected, The Wife and I had hotel door-to-door service, but much of the tour occurred before and after we joined.
OUR TOUR: Preston was a fabulous, knowledgeable guide who answered all our group's questions on flora, fauna, and history. The wet (In Seattle? Who knew??) weather caused some improvising to scheduled activities, but I think all of us were pleased with our experiences under the uber-damp circumstances. We entered and exited ONP a couple of times to visit different areas, culminating with a scenic, informative hike to a beautiful waterfall. (As it turned out, I should have stayed with my wife in the lodge in front of the fireplace. My 70 year old bones slowed down the other hikers and the almost 2 mile trek took much longer than it should have. But then I would have missed so much of Preston's knowledge sharing.) After post-hike refreshments in the lodge, we left ONP and were returned to our hotel. The rest of the group then had a ferry ride back to their Seattle accommodations! Bet that was fun.

Jeff picked us up at our hotel right on time and provided us with all of the information that we could wish for and more. His accommodation for a client who got carsick on the winding roads through the park was sensitive and adequate without infringing on the rest of the group. A variety of snacks were provided (breakfast muffins, granola, peanut butter stuffed pretzels, cookies and “Ozzie bars”) along with a hearty lunch. The lunch was described as gourmet, but I don’t consider baked chicken, potato salad and kale salad to be “gourmet” even though the chicken and potato salad were really delicious. A single bottle of wine was opened and was enjoyable enough that I wish a second had been opened as well. Jeff’s knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area were quite good and his presentation kept us laughing as well as interested. The hour and a half to 2 hour drive to the park and back went quickly due to his interaction with us. The tour itself began with a hike along Hurricane Ridge during which he pointed out and explained many interesting things. His ability to answer questions was exceptional. Due to the altitude several guests became winded and needed to rest. His willingness to push on or turn back as the abilities of the group demanded was evident throughout, yet those who wished to push on were always able to do so. As the group included mostly “mature” clients, this was very appreciated. Later while the group took a short walk to a lovely waterfall, Jeff put out the tablecloth, cloth napkins, metal flatware and food which would be lunch. Following lunch was a drive to a walk in a temperate rainforest where Jeff’s knowledge and ability to spot wildlife was again outstanding. The five rainbows which we saw made the drizzly weather worthwhile. The day was totally enjoyable however for the price I did expect the group to be much smaller than the nine clients who were on the tour.
