Please call Yonder Sky 24 hours in advance to your tour if you have any dietary restrictions and every effort to accommodate you will be made.
Is vegetarian food available?
Yes, we’re happy to provide vegetarian and vegan meals. Please call Yonder Sky at least 24 hours before your tour so there is ample time to prepare.
What should I wear?
Washington’s weather is generally mild, but it can be unpredictable. The best practice is to dress in layers that can easily be removed or added. We recommend a light jacket outer layer to protect against wind or unexpected rain showers. For footwear, please wear comfortable closed-toe shoes or hiking boots that you don’t mind getting a little muddy. We also recommend a hat and sunglasses for sunny days.
What else should I bring?
We recommend you bring your camera, necessary medications, sunscreens, and a small day pack if desired. Where do you pick up? We offer pick-up and drop-off wherever you’re staying in Seattle city limits – whether it’s a hotel, vacation rental, or friend’s home.
What if it’s raining?
Thankfully, Washington is beautiful rain or shine. Tours will be canceled in the event of severe weather or treacherous road conditions. If the tour needs to be canceled, you’ll be notified as soon as possible and a full refund will be issued if there’s not a way to rebook your tour.
