Experience the Serene and Magical Rainforest
All three temperate rainforests located in the contiguous United States are on the Olympic Peninsula. We proudly offer Quinault Rainforest tours year-round, departing from Lake Quinault Lodge - the only guest accommodations directly inside the rainforest.
Join us for the only tour of its kind anywhere on the Olympic Peninsula!
Our 3 ½ to 4 hour, comprehensive tour of the lush Quinault Rainforest takes place in our comfortable 14-passenger Tour Coach where your Interpretive Guide will explain the history of the area including the Quinault Indian Nation, the early expeditions that revealed Lake Quinault and the flora and fauna native to the rainforest. This unique tour takes you to the best photo points and you will get up close and personal with the rainforest on selected short walks.
Your rainforest tour will help you discover the beauty and tranquility of this magnificent wild resource. You will gain an understanding of how all things in nature are connected and dependent on each other for survival. Wildlife sightings may include the magnificent Roosevelt elk, black bear, and many varieties of birds including bald eagles and osprey.
