I enjoyed my time on this 3 day tour. The places we saw where beautiful. Our guide Emma was very knowledgeable and fun. Our overnight location was awesome, it was beautiful, comfortable, and charming.

This was a truly amazing experience! Every detail was taken care of which meant all of our time could be focused on enjoying the beauty of nature, silence, and the group. The accommodations at the campsite exceed my expectations. Sean is an amazing guide, he knows what he’s doing and loves it. Each day was a beautiful adventure. It’s amazing what some intentional time in silence and in nature can do. I would strongly recommend this experience.

This adventure was just phenomenal. Exploring the wilderness in the Olympic National Park was truly unforgettable. The time spent in the silence of the Hoh rainforest was so impactful for me. I left the experience with a new perspective of how important it is for us to preserve the last of our earth's naturally quiet places. Every aspect of the trip itself was well thought out and taken care of. The transportation was in a very nice and large air conditioned van. The food was plentiful; breakfast and fresh coffee every morning, tons of snacks, a delicious homemade ‘hobo’ dinner we all made ourselves over the campfire, and a lovely dinner one night at a nearby restaurant overlooking the ocean. The campsite was tranquil and the self sustaining trailer accommodations were perfectly cozy. Our guide, Sean, was wonderful. He was patient, engaging, thoughtful, and so knowledgeable. I personally gained so much from connecting with the natural environment on this adventure and I highly recommend it for anyone who is seeking clarity and peace, away from the constant noise of our daily lives.

This was an amazing experience in the Olympic Nat Forest. Sean goes out of his way to show you the sights. It was great to have someone else do the planning and take care of the necessities. The campsite is in a awesome location and very comfy. The partnership with Matt M is a great bonus for this trip. I learned so much about the benefits of silence and our impact to nature on this dimension. I would highly recommend this trip!
