Trip Info

The Pacific Northwest is home to some of the most dramatic and dynamic landscapes in the country. We’ll explore its rocky coasts, venture into the heart of a rainforest, and connect with a like-minded group of eco-conscious travelers – all in just five days!


Summer is a wonderful time to visit Washington and the weather can be extremely varied. We’ll be exploring a variety of locations each with its own weather trends.

In general, you should be prepared for warm, comfortable days with temperatures in the 70s – possibly reaching the 80s in the afternoon. Nights will be cooler with lows in the 50s. Though less likely this time of year, there is always the potential for rain. High elevations on Mount Rainier may even have lingering snow this time of year!

Intensity – Mild 

This trip is appropriate for beginner hikers.  Your Good Trip guide will have your safety at top of mind at all times, and group hikes and activities will be based on the overall group’s abilities and interests.



  • Four nights camping in Olympic National Park
  • Tents are double-occupancy and included in trip cost, including sleeping bag & sleeping pad
