Welcome to the Olympic Peninsula!

Bordered on the west by the Pacific Ocean, on the east by the Hood Canal and on the north by the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Olympic Peninsula is anchored by the majestic Olympic Mountains. No other place in America can match its diversity in terrain and weather in such a compact geographic area.  So come visit and explore our lakes, waterfalls, rivers, mountains, beaches and rain forest.

While our main attraction is the Olympic National Park, there is a wealth of outdoor activities, cultural experiences and local events in each community around the Peninsula to keep you coming back for more! Plus, you'll probably meet some friendly locals enjoying the same "things to do" you'll want to experience.  Be sure to check out our Waterfall Trail website as well to learn more about twenty-four of our beautiful waterfall hikes!
