Mt St Helen’s | Private Tour

On May 18th, 1980 the “Mountain of Fire” blew its top with the force of over 27,000 atomic bombs. The ash cloud drifted around the world and it dumped ash a distance of a thousand miles away, burying cars and leaving people stranded for days. The devastation left was awesome and it resulted in a mile plus wide crater, the largest landslide in recorded history. The trees in the blast zone were left prostrate and all vegetation destroyed and the soil steril. Rivers of mud buried lakes and rivers and made new ones.

The recovery 33 years later is amazing and a sight of incredible beauty. This ecotour will set you back to the realities of our smallness and the vast, overwhelming power of nature.

Snow and animals are seasonal and their abundance may vary, driving routes may vary based on weather and road conditions, your guide will make necessary changes to enhance your tour experience.

Private tours are based on minimum occupancy of 7, or $140 per person, which ever is greater. Child rates do not apply.   Price includes tax and courtesy pickup; gratuity is appreciated and graciously accepted.
