Guided Tours offer a unique opportunity to learn the true nature and history of Mount Washington and the Auto Road.
Driven by one of our accomplished and dedicated tour guides, your “stage driver” will offer stories, anecdotes, legends, history and insight into the ecological wonder of Mount Washington as well as point out interesting features and scenic opportunities from the base to the 6,288-foot summit.
Where 2-hour guided tours head directly up to the summit for an hour and then back down, the 3-hour tours provide the opportunity to explore more of the Road itself along the way. Walks, hikes, alpine flowers, ecological zones, history, or even extended time on the summit are all options that are available.
3-HOUR ADVENTURE TOURS INCLUDE:
- 3 hours on the Mt. Washington Auto Road led by one of our accomplished and dedicated tour guides in a comfortable 12-passenger tour vehicle
- the opportunity to explore scenic points of interest along the Auto Road including options for walks, short hikes and discussions of history, flora and fauna
- time on the summit to experience amazing views or exciting weather extremes; historic buildings, gift shops, and complimentary access to the Mount Washington Observatory’s interactive “Extreme Mt. Washington Museum”
ADVENTURE TOURS ARE AVAILABLE IN
TWO DIFFERENT OPTIONS
Sightseeing Adventure Tours
This 3-Hour Tour focuses on exploring the numerous roadside, scenic vistas along the journey to the summit (the 2-Hour Tour travels directly to the summit). The Sightseeing Adventure Tour offers the opportunity to step out of the van at choice locations for photos, video and to experience the different alpine zones and unique areas of the mountain. Our knowledgeable tour guides will share their knowledge and experiences of Mount Washington and will be available to answer any of your questions.
If you wish to spend more time taking in the views along the road or at the summit, this is the tour for you.

Please note that much of the footing will be on rocky footpaths that can be very slick even when dry. If you have any questions about your ability to participate in this tour, please do not hesitate to give us a call at (603) 466-3988.
