Short Description

One of the only trips of its kind in Cascadia, you will not only experience the back country of the Olympic World Heritage Center, you will have the pleasure of authentic and refined lodging, fine spirits and foods traditional to the area, and shops and stops that encompass the culture at the heart of the Olympic Peninsula.  On the trail, you will be led by one of KAF Adventures’ professional mountain guides through the famous “Quinault River Drainage” route from Quinault to Dosewallips.  This carefully crafted trip, offering both cultural and wilderness enrichment, is the journey of a lifetime.

Stride Take


Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

Looking forward for another tour with them!

Amazing day out at Mount Rainier. We were very lucky with the weather, and got to see the park at it's best. Justin was a fantastic guide; knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Looking forward to coming back in the future and taking another tour!

Good tour could have done better!

On Friday October 24 a friend and I did the Portland Craft Breweries & Bridges and the guide Steven was very friendly and the tour in itself was good. However, we did not visit any bridges and only drove by one but no comments were made by the guide. No food of any kind was offer in any of the 4 locations we visited. In your website and ticket paper I have food/snacks are mentioned. We feel we were cheated for the price we paid.

Awesome tour of Portland!

We went on an awesome tour of Portland, as well as a wine and waterfall tour. Both were informative and a ton of fun.
