8-Day Guided Wildflower Tour Package 6/5-6/12

Smooth Douglasia are early pink wildflowers seen in rock gardens at Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park
Event date

In addition to our flexible-scheduled year-round private day tours, we offer very small group hiking and nature tour packages that are 8 days and 7 nights.

We'll visit the highlights of a vacation to Olympic National Park while focusing on a shared passion for wildflowers and plants in general. 
We've planned all the details, so please join us. Email us today at and we will send you an expression of interest form.
Each tour will have no more than five participants who will be prioritized by the date an expression of interest form is received. 

You don’t have to be a plant expert to join us, the tour will focus on different plant habitats and overall sublime plant viewing. Although the Pacific Northwest is known for rainfall, April to June is a time of transition from our rainy season to our dry summer season. Almost all our lowland wildflowers will be blooming and as the snow melts in higher elevations, spring takes hold everywhere. Early spring flowers that are finished blooming in the lowlands will have just started blooming in the middle-elevation Pacific Silver Fir forests. The higher-elevation Subalpine Fir woodlands and subalpine meadows typically encompass an entirely different diversity of plants. We will have a good chance at viewing Black Bear at a distance, foraging in the lushest of subalpine meadows at Hurricane Ridge although this is dependent on rate of snowmelt.
