What To Expect
Millions of years ago, the Valley was the scene of an epic clash of glacier and granite that produced delicate ecosystems and dynamic landscapes made of mammoth granite domes, ancient Giant Sequoias, and vibrant wildlife.
Throughout your journey, you'll escape your luxury vehicle frequently to explore the Yosemite National Park, home to hundreds of wildlife species, thousands of plant species, countless waterfalls, and more than 1,000 square miles of wild terrain.
Depending on the weather, group size and season your experienced naturalist guide will take you to one or two of the iconic parts of the park. You may either explore Tuolumne Grove to marvel at towering Giant Sequoias.
Or explore the valley floor to experience granite domes such as Half Dome, El Capitan and breathtaking waterfalls that crash against granite peaks or stroll along the peaceful alpine shores of Tenaya Lake. As snow blankets Yosemite in the winter, you may take advantage of lighter tourist traffic to spend more time experiencing Yosemite Valley on a walk on the shimmering Mirror Lake Trail or the Valley Loop trail.
Enjoy a late snack on the way back to the city.
