About The Tour

Mount Rainier National Park is centered around an awe-inspiring, iconic volcano — Mount Rainier — and takes you through miles and miles of old-growth forest, up and down a rollercoaster of the Cascade Mountains, past lakes, rivers, and waterfalls, and along scenic hikes through wildflower meadows, up mountains, and through woods. The overlooks along the drive will take your breath away and the serpentine roads leading up to Paradise and Sunrise — the most popular sections of the park — will keep your heart pumping and your camera clicking.

Here are just a few of the fun things you can do on the tour:

• Explore the stunning alpine meadows of Paradise, where wildflowers bloom beneath the imposing backdrop of Mount Rainier's glaciers.

• Witness the first light of day at Sunrise Point, an overlook offering unrivaled views of the mountain's icy flanks and the surrounding wilderness.

• Wander through the ancient forest of the Grove of the Patriarchs, where colossal trees stand sentinel over a tranquil island oasis.

• Stand in awe of Narada Falls as it plunges gracefully over a rugged cliffside, sending misty rainbows through the crisp mountain air.

• Ascend to breathtaking heights aboard the Mount Rainier Gondola at Crystal Mountain.

Made Kauai even better!

This is our third trip to Kauai in the past 6 years. This time we used the Shaka Guide app and did all four tours. We saw so many things we didn’t see before. The history, legends, and traditions shared in the stories along the way brought the island to life in a whole knew way.

Made the Road to Hana even more fun. Great info and a useful map!
