About the trip

Explore the mountains and waters

The Cascade peaks that stand proudly over the Pacific Northwest are truly iconic. From the moment you arrive and see the summits rise over the clouds, you'll be enamored by their size and beauty; but as you venture into the dense forests that define their foothills, you'll find surprises in all sizes - from the tiny Pika that run through the meadows to the sentinel-like cedar trees of its old growth forests to the glaciated summit of Mount Rainier.

On this seven day adventure, we'll explore the most fascinating and stunning areas of the region from its waters to its mountains. We'll paddle on its shores, learning tales of how the coast gave life to the first people and we'll hike through the trails of its mountains where we'll keep our eyes peeled for flora and fauna that defines one of North America's most fascinating ecological regions.
