Posted: Jun. 5th, 2012  |  By Amy Hughes

For the nature and outdoor enthusiast, the Pacific Northwest is the perfect location and Seattle, the hub of the PNW, has much to offer.  There is a vast expanse of beauty to be found: lush, cool forests and mesmerizing lakes, luxurious city parks and untouched wildlife preserves, eagles that soar over rivers which are chock full of salmon, and so much more.  Seattle resides on the shores of Puget Sound, filled with spectacular islands, orca whales and views of awesome sunsets you won't want to miss.  The possibilities that lie before you as a nature lover in Seattle are endless.  Here are just a few of them.

Alpine Adventures

Rapids, waterfalls or just a relaxing float down the river; Alpine Adventures offers them all.  Experience the excitement of a white water rafting trip on the rollercoaster-like rapids or take in the sights as you enjoy the tranquility of drifting on a raft.  There is no better way to travel than down the river with Alpine Adventures!

Discovery Park

If you travel all the way to Seattle and miss out on Discovery Park you will be sorely disappointed!  For the outdoor enthusiast this place is a paradise.  A 534 acre natural area that offers breathtaking views of Puget Sound and both the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges and includes two miles of protected tidal beaches as well as open meadow lands, intense sea cliffs, gorgeous forest groves, active sand dunes, thickets and streams.  Set aside at least one day to explore Discovery Park.

Argosy Cruises

There is absolutely no better way to view Seattle than from the water and Argosy Cruises provides the opportunity for you to do just that!  With four public cruises that depart daily from downtown Seattle, Lake Union and Kirkland City Dock, you will experience a tour like no other which includes live narration, wonderful views and feature Seattle's most famous places.  Tour Seattle in style with Argosy Cruises!
