Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Experience an active hiking adventure that will take you on hikes to flower-covered alpine meadows, old-growth forests, waterfalls, beautiful mountain overlooks and spectacular Mount St. Helens, where you can peer into the crater left from the 1980 volcanic eruption. Throughout each day, learn some of this area's history, geology, flora and fauna.


Highlights

• Hiking around Naches Peak provides outstanding views of Mount Rainier, carpets of wildflowers and a fascinating walk through a majestic old-growth forest.
• At Paradise on Mount Rainier’s south side, hike through wildflower meadows on the flanks of the mountain and enjoy dinner at Paradise Inn.
• Explore historic Longmire Springs on the west side of Mount Rainier and hike to several of the waterfalls in the park, and experience Sunrise on the east side for close-up views of the mountain’s glaciers.
