The Only Tour of Its Kind

Alpine Lake Packrafting

Discover the ultimate adventure in the captivating Pacific Northwest with our exclusive, multi-sport tour. Delve into the wilderness as you embark on a remarkable backpacking expedition, traverse a mesmerizing glacial alpine lake by paddling, and camp under the towering 200-foot trees – all in a single, extraordinary weekend or overnight trip. Our groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind tour reimagines travel and exploration, raising the bar for immersive, outdoor experiences.

At Optimum Adventures, we pride ourselves on our distinctive approach. Our signature, overnight tour stands as the world’s only two-day alpine lake packrafting adventure!

Reserving this exceptional tour sets you apart. It offers you an exclusive opportunity, unmatched by any other experience worldwide. Upon your return, you’ll have the privilege of sharing with others not only your exploration of the Pacific Northwest, but the unparalleled way in which you accomplished it.


For thrill-seekers craving more than just a tour, our extraordinary adventure promises to challenge your limits, ignite your passion for the outdoors, and deliver a rare experience that only a select few have undertaken.

We’re not offering a typical rafting trip on a river, paddle boarding on a nearby lake, or a simple backpacking trip in the mountains. Instead, we expertly blend hiking, camping, and paddling in a magnificent outdoor setting for an unforgettable, high-impact adventure!

During this exhilarating journey, you’ll trek beneath towering canopies of Douglas Fir trees, explore one of the country’s few designated wilderness areas, and navigate a mesmerizing turquoise alpine lake situated at the base of a glacier, surrounded by mountain peaks and cascading waterfalls.

By fusing backpacking and packrafting into a single two-day escapade, you’ll experience some of the most picturesque scenery in the entire Pacific Northwest, and do so in a way that only a privileged few have ever achieved.

Nature at its Finest

If you’ve been looking at all the pictures on the website so far then you don’t need to be told this, but this trip takes place in one of the most beautiful places in the world!

We at Optimum Adventures are extremely fortunate to operate in an area with granite mountains peaks, snow-capped volcanoes, old-growth forests, and glacially-fed, turquoise waters. To us, the Cascade Mountain Range is our weekend playground, but for many, its a life-long vacation destination.

So if you’re looking to experience a natural landscape only found in a few select areas in the world, or to be in a place where anyone with a camera is a great photographer, join us in the Cascades, as this is the trip for you!
