Sunrise Guided Tour 

Leave the driving to us in one of our 8-passenger vans. Experience a sunrise on Mt. Washington from the comfort of a Mt. Washington Stage Coach.

Our experienced tour guides will drive you up the Mt. Washington Auto Road for a chance to watch the sunrise. We leave promptly from the base lodge and will not hold back the trip as we need to keep a tight schedule to make sure we have enough time at the summit for this experience.

Our drivers know the prime spots to view, have access to safe “VIP” parking where other cars would not be able to park, and will tell their tales on the ascent and descent. Even if we don’t actually get to the see the sunrise, you can be sure the lighting on the mountains will make for incredible and unforgettable scenes. Although you are riding in a heated van, you should dress warmly as you will have an opportunity to get out of the van for pictures and to experience the weather on Mt. Washington. Weather info can be found here and you are always welcome to call for the latest conditions. This tour may run over 2 hours depending on weather and where we watch the sunrise from.

Drive Yourself at Sunrise

The Auto Road will open early so that you can Drive Yourself to the summit to experience sunrise at the summit of Mt. Washington. Weather permitting, as always. Be sure to check the Road Status for the most up-to-date operating information.

There is an additional $10 fee for vehicles for the sunrise drive above our standard Toll House rates. We encourage all drivers to book online in advance for this sunrise trip.

Bookings for Sunrise Drives are limited to 4 people per vehicle.
