And it’s not just the L.A. Times that recognizes our tour. This trip has been highlighted in 11 different newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune and The Morning Call! So what makes our tour stand out? Our small groups, unique itinerary and commitment to creating an authentic experience that allows travelers to explore nature in a comfortable, fun, and eco-friendly way.

The Olympic Peninsula Tour

While there are many tours offered on the Olympic Peninsula, only Gondwana Ecotours gives you the quintessential Pacific Northwest experience. You won’t have to piece together one tour to take you hiking through the rainforests of the Olympic National Park and then another tour to see whales in the Salish Sea. You won’t have to try and book seaside cabin accommodations or find your way through the historic towns along the coast. You’ll get to see the most celebrated features of the park, like Lake Crescent and Hurricane Ridge, without having to figure out how to get there. Gondwana’s Olympic Peninsula Tour has been carefully crafted to allow you to see all of these things without all of the normal stress of travel so that you can simply relax and enjoy the journey.

More than a Vacation

There are hundreds of options to choose from when you’re planning your next trip. Where do you go and what do you see? Do you travel with a group or do you go it alone? It can be both exciting and exhausting trying to plan out your next vacation. But maybe it’s time to start thinking about vacation in a whole new way. It doesn’t have to be about visiting tourist traps and fighting crowds to get a peek at a famous landmark. It doesn’t have to be mixed-up reservations and disappointing accommodations. It can be experiencing a moment of quiet contemplation on the edge of the clear waters of Lake Crescent. Or it can be learning about a whole new culture and making new friends with members of the Makah Nation. It can be about making memories instead of taking hurried selfies. With Gondwana Ecotours, your vacation can be a life-changing experience!
