The Classic Route flies between Boeing Field and Mt. Rainier National Park.  En route, you'll fly over the Cascade foothills, do a close flyby of Snoqualmie Falls, and glide over the dramatic peaks and valleys that ring the National Park.  

+$99/Seat Extended Route (~50 mins)

For an extra $99/seat, your pilot will take you on an even greater tour of the valleys, glaciers and snowfields surrounding the National Park.  Like the Classic Route, you'll do a close flyby of Snoqualmie Falls and the Cascade foothills but instead of going directly into or out of Boeing Field, you'll take an extra loop around downtown Seattle, the Space Needle, waterfront, Ballard Locks and Lake Union.
