Olympic National Park is situated on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula in the Pacific Northwest. The park contains three distinct ecosystems for the visitors to explore; lush temperate forests, glaciated mountains and the rugged Pacific coastline.
Due to the park’s pristine state and exceptional landscapes, the United Nations has declared it as both an international biosphere reserves and a World Heritage site.
More than 95% of the park is labelled as wilderness, providing tourists with the chance to experience the remoteness and immaculateness of nature in a way that few other places can.
The park experiences a moderate marine climate with pleasant summers and mild, wet winters. Summers are normally fair and warm, with high temperatures usually between 65 and 75 F. Summer is the driest season, with heavier precipitation during the rest of the year.
At any time of year, visitors should come equipped for a variety of conditions. Rain gear and layered clothing are a compulsion.
