Location: San Francisco, United States
Product Code: 3454YP2DWIN

Activity Details

Immerse yourself in the beauty and solitude of Yosemite National Park in the winter for two days of crisp, fresh mountain air on this semi-guided tour. At night, sleep comfortably in the historic Yosemite Valley Lodge nestled in the heart of Yosemite Valley. Here you will witness a Yosemite that few tourists get to see: towering granite monoliths blanketed in snow and magnificent waterfalls frozen in time. This itinerary allows for both a guided portion and ample free time to explore on your own. During this time may choose to hike, go snowshoeing, ice skate, grab a hot drink by the fire, or take a guided tour of the valley floor. This winter voyage to Yosemite is the ultimate laid-back winter holiday and not to be missed.
