One of the stark realities of Yosemite is its vastness, where so much of the park is astoundingly remote, if not impenetrable.  Of the park’s approximate 750,000 acres, nearly 95 percent of its area is protected wilderness.  The vast majority of the park’s visitors never venture more than 1/2 mile from their vehicles.  Let us show you another side of Yosemite – the quieter trails, the unique picnic spots, its giant sequoias, dramatic waterfalls, deep glacier-carved canyons, snow-clad peaks and magnificent domes.  The trails included are non-technical day hikes that best reflect the variety and scenic fascination that is Yosemite.

This tour can be booked for any dates from June – October, but we recommend avoiding the middle of summer as it can get very hot and crowded in the valley.  Tours must be booked at least 2 weeks in advance, with a minimum of 2 participants.  **Please Note **  Hotel reservations in the Yosemite Valley can fill up quickly, so book early.  Also for 2024 – reservations are required to enter the park on weekends in June, September and October, and every day in July and August.  The earlier you book, the more likely we can accommodate your date preferences.

(Note: actual hotels are subject to availability and not guaranteed before booking)
