We booked the trip via Viator.com and the actual company conducted the tour is Tours Northwest. We took the tour on 6/25/2015, picked up at our hotel in downtown Seattle at 7:30 AM, and spent pretty much whole day for the trip. Our bus/van driver and tour guide, Chris, is just awesome throughout the trip. He is very knowledgeable about... More

Mount Rainier National Park is splendid from the drive in all the way to trails at higher altitudes. We started at Paradise (after stopping at several view points on the way such as Reflection Lake), and hiked up about 1700 feet via the Skyline/High Skyline Trails, as well as explored several other trails. Myrtle Falls was a nice easy hike... More

We took a Viatar Day Trip and it was amazing. Chris, our tour guide, was fantastic. Knowledgeable and funny! We stopped at different spots to see views of Rainier and waterfalls. Once you get to Paradise, there are different trails you can take. We took an easy trail. It was easy for my husband, but not so much for me.... More

My son and I went with International Mountain Guides to climb the mountain. Great experience and excellent guides. Not easy but they make sure you're well cared for. 3.5 days by the Disappointment Cleaver route.

Mount Rainier and the surrounding National Park offers countless ways to enjoy a full day outdoors! I explored the SW corner and Paradise area.

We enjoyed a hike up to Comet Falls and up above to Van Trump Park. Majestic falls and then picturesque views of the mountain above a rainbow explosion of (early this year!) wildflowers!

Even if you don't hike, you should go up a little ways up the Paradise walkway to see the array of wild flowers. It isn't very steep and partially paved. There are also benches outside the visitor's center to sit and look at the beauty of the mountain and surrounding areas!

The mountain soars to 14,410 feet, and you can drive to various locations as high as 6400 feet and hike and gawk at it. The landscape is stunning and it changes as you walk on.

We spent a day at Mount Rainier National Park. It was the best part of our visit to Seattle. We went on a beautiful day, and drove around the park for a while. We finally stopped at the Henry M Jackson Memorial Visitor Center. We hiked the Skyline Trail towards Mt. Rainier. It was a great (but steep) hike, and... More
