Thank you so much for the amazing 3 days!! It was my most amazing experience and this trip changed my life! I will keep working on being as strong as people who carry one 3rd of their body weight to climb up the mountain and want to back packing one day. I will definitely come back to Rocky Mountain! Hope to see you soon!

I hired Kaiyote to help me find the best place to photograph Hurricane Ridge during sunrise. She did a phenomenal job, and I was so grateful for her experience. She also made sure to suggest a few venues that also made for great photographs. Thanks so much, Kaiyote. I hope others discover your awesome business.

Kaiyote led my family on a guided tour of Iceland in August 2018. We had a wonderful time in the country and with Kaiyote. The highlight of the trip was visiting a puffin colony on an island off of Iceland. It was wonderful to see these amazing birds up close. My time with Kaiyote introduced me to bird watching, an activity which, due to my time with Kaiyote, I've also come to enjoy and love!

I have known Kaiyote from her days in Colorado, her knowledge of nature intertwined with birds and animals of the world. I had the opportunity to go to Columbia, December 2018. The trip was wonderful and many birds were found. My favorite is hummingbirds and we saw 32 species in 12 days. The trips run smoothly, we eat well always and the camaraderie was wonderful. I would highly recommend a trip with her.

From Kaiyote Tours

At Kaiyote Tours we specialize in birding, botany, wildlife viewing and nature travel.  Our trips offer unique experiences and great opportunities for photography, learning and adventure.  We travel in small groups of 7 – 10 travelers with knowledgeable guides.

Kaiyote Tours never misses an opportunity for a little fun; perhaps an afternoon of learning how to surf or maybe climbing up into a rainforest canopy platform to sleep with the parrots or even exploring and swimming in deep beautiful caves. Sometimes we travel first class and sometimes we take the “chicken bus”. Exploring local cultures and meeting the local people is part of the fun.

If you love birds, wildlife and the thrill of getting to remote places, the trips we offer are for you. On all trips, it is our goal to see as many birds and interesting critters as possible. We also, however, appreciate that travel is always more than that. The places you will get to in your life and the people you meet along the way will be some of the most memorable experiences you will have. It will change your life.

We are professional guides based in Port Angeles, Washington.  Our specialty is nature and travel tours.  We offer twelve different international trips a year.  We travel to Argentina, Colombia, France, Iceland, Nicaragua and Scandinavia. We live at the edge of Olympic National Park and we have been taking travelers on guided tours since the year 1998.

Kaiyote Snow is the owner and lead guide of Kaiyote Tours.  Kaiyote has a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.  She is a self-taught naturalist, an award winning photographer and artist.  Kaiyote is a certified Wilderness First Responder, a NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School) graduate and a Leave No Trace Backcountry Master Educator.  Kaiyote is a former instructor for the Rocky Mountain Conservancy. Her passions are birding, botany and adventure travel.

From 1998 - 2014 Kaiyote led guided birding, hiking and backpacking tours in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Currently she lives in Port Angeles, Washington and continues to lead international nature trips and tours in Olympic National Park.  She has traveled much of the world in search of birds and adventure.

When we are not out exploring the world we are at home, living in the mountains and by the sea.  Here we spend our time birding, wildlife watching, hiking, backpacking and sailing.  In the winter, we are skiers, both Alpine and Nordic, and we love to snowshoe.  We can guide you on any type of trip you would like, whether it is private or with a group.

We believe that travel and nature will show you a better way to live and will change your life forever.  There is no better way to find a new part of you then to lose your old self in a new world.
