Private Mount Rainier Tour

Our Private Mount Rainier Tour from Seattle covers all you can ask for and more for a mountain tour!  You get to see all sides of Mount Rainier as you travel all the way around it, we don’t go up and back the same way.

Trail hikes, waterfall trails, a canyon, and fast-flowing rivers will get your spirit active.  We provide a map and trail suggestions, and the Visitors Center can provide even more trail ideas, maps, gift shop, mountain animals to look for, geology, and more to help coordinate your time at Paradise.  Box canyon, near remnants of lava, are showcased along-side the trail, easy to see, get to, and enjoy.  Even a view of Mount Adams can be seen on a clear day.  Some waterfalls are right by the parking area, so no walking at all.

We offer tours for both hikers and non athletic visitors on our Private Mount Rainier tour; anyone who wishes to see the beauty and grandeur of our Cascade Mountains.  We modify the tour as we go along just to keep you having fun, and often make wow! stops for photos.

We also make several brief stops on our Private Mount Rainier tour to see unusual and interesting sights along the way (you’ll love it!) and to stretch our legs during the drive to and from the actual mountain roads. You ask, we stop.

Lunch is included at a restaurant along the way, unless you want more time on the trails.  In that case you’ll eat at the Visitors Center or we’ll pick up sandwiches and chips to eat on the way.

Can’t wait to meet you!  Call Cheryl’s Northwest Tours LLC at 206 353-3330 or book on line at cherylsnwtours.com.  We have limited availability due to these being private tours, but we’ll watch for you!

Lake Chelan Stehekin Overnight Tour

This gallery contains 5 photos.

A new addition to our tours, we’ve added several overnight excursions.  May 30-June 1, 2015 try our Lake Chelan Stehekin Tour. In Eastern WA, Lake Chelan is approximately 50 miles (80 km) long and 1486 feet (453 m) deep, in the Northeast North Cascade Mountains. The third deepest lake in the US, this lake is beautifully landscaped with forests and hills. Lake Chelan Stehekin is a wonderful day or overnight retreat.  The town of Chelan sits on the South end of the lake, and Stehekin on the North end. Stehekin is only accessible by boat, plane, hiking, or horseback.

You begin the Lake Chelan Stehekin tour with a ride from Seattle over a mountain pass from Seattle to Chelan, about a 4 hour drive. You stop for lunch just past the midway mark.  You’ll stay the first night in a wonderful resort hotel with hot tub, pool, great food and accommodations, all on the beach of this lovely lake.  In the morning you transfer to the dock and take a boat ride to Stehekin, arriving in time for lunch.  We’ve arranged a tour to Rainbow Falls and a talk with a naturalist, and the hotel rooms view the lake from the North. Stehekin is somewhat rustic with little to do if you aren’t in to nature. It’s a great, peaceful getaway.
