From the blue waters of the crashing Pacific, to the millions shades of green of the lush rainforest, to the endless white blanket of ice covering the peaks of the Olympic Mountains, the Olympic Peninsula is perhaps one of the most spectacular regions in the world to visit. Maybe nowhere else will you find the vivid contrast of colors and landscapes in such a small area.
