What you'll do

A first-rate adventure in our favorite 1,100 square mile national treasure – spend time on foot in our favorite places in Olympic National Park! Join Matt Mikkelsen, documentary filmmaker and protector of natural silence, on an unforgettable guided exploration of the quiet corners of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. We'll depart Seattle by ferry for the National Park, where you'll explore waterfalls, mountains, big trees, beaches, and one of the most-intact silent landscapes remaining on earth - the legendary Hoh Rainforest. Renowned local sound recordist Matt Mikkelsen will guide you through the Hoh Rainforest to 'One Square Inch of Silence', a tranquil sound sanctuary and the subject of his documentary, "Soundtracker". Other highlights include Ruby Beach, Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge, Kalaloch, and more! We’ll be walking each day – tailoring distances and timing to you as we circumnavigate the National Park. We’re happy to accommodate a wide range of desires and ability levels. At night, you'll sleep soundly in the heart of Olympic National Park - with big views of the Pacific Ocean coast - in private, comfortable mobile mini-cabins outfitted by our friends at ROAM Trailers!
