Things to See & Do

It comprises almost a million acres—it is so vast that it contains several distinct ecosystems, including snowy mountains, wild coastline, and temperate rain forests. There are several other natural attractions, including waterfalls, beaches, and rivers for kayaking or canoeing. The Olympic Peninsula offers breathtaking views during all times of the day. Look for glimpses of whales along the Whale Trail and stunning views of the Washington Lavender Farm.
