Our Yosemite camping tour leaves San Francisco in the evening, and we arrive in Yosemite Valley for a continental breakfast and an incredible view under El Capitan.
Breathe in the fresh air and take a leisurely walk through the forest on the way to the Ansel Adams Gallery and Yosemite Museum, or take a peek inside the famous Awahnee Hotel. Walk up to Columbia point for great views of Half Dome. Strong hikers can head up the Mist Trail and get up close to two thundering waterfalls — don't forget good hiking shoes!
Bicycling or floating the river are also great ways to spend the day, before we embark eastward across the park's sunset vistas. We arrive at our camping spot in the Sierra Nevada for dinner and a starry campsite.
We'll wrap up our adventures with a late-night stop at a Gold Rush-era saloon, and arrive back in San Francisco early the next morning.
Transportation, camping and food is included in the price! Note: Be prepared! We visit many environments in the course of our Yosemite adventure, so anything from valley heat to a near freezing night is possible. Your food fund covers all national park and camping fees, and all meals.
To reserve your seat call 415 956 7500 ext 1.
