Join a local nature & wine guide on a small-group trip where you'll combine the best the Northwest has to offer in this full-day adventure: enjoy a beautiful National Park hike with big views of Mt. Rainier, an organic picnic lunch outside , and wine tastings at beloved Northwestern wineries in the Yakima Valley! First, we'll drive 1.5 hours to Mt. Rainier for a 3-mile nature walk/hike appropriate for most abilities. On a clear day the beautiful, hulking monolith can be seen from just about anywhere. At the height of summer, travelers and locals alike make pilgrimages to her flower-flanked trails for the relaxation, fresh air, and peace that only comes with a walk in a quiet, wild place. Along the way, your guide may even show you which plants are safe to nibble on! After an organic, gourmet picnic lunch outside - we'll head for the Yakima Valley known for sunshine, Italian, German, and Portugese grapes, and wines with food-friendly acidity. We'll visit two beloved, locally-owned vineyards in the Naches Heights AVA. We might visit Wilridge, Mill Lane, Fontaine, or Southard vineyards & wineries. After all of that, we'll aim to deliver you safely back to Seattle by dinner time!

Your small group will travel comfortably in a Mercedes sprinter, 2019 Ford Transit, or luxe SUV (depends upon group size).
Mt. Rainier National Park: a vast majority of bigger tour companies don't have a Commercial Use Agreement to explore beyond a mile of the road--we do. They're restricted to "road tours" while we'll get in a lovely, accessible 3-mile hike. Yakima Valley: we'll choose two well-loved wineries/vineyards and take travelers behind-the-scenes to learn from local wine makers, vineyard owners, and our sommelier wine guide!
