Enjoy camping, hiking and swimming in a fun-filled, friendly atmosphere. Visit not only Yosemite Valley, but also the magnificent Giant Sequoia trees and the breathtaking High Country. The fully-guided, all equipment provided nature of this camping tour mixes perfectly with a California coastal itinerary.
Food is provided, but not the chefs. Not only are you the guest, but also the cook, waiter and dishwasher. The fare is all-you-can-eat, very tasty and a mixture of chicken, beef and vegetarian.
Recommended Gear List:
*You will have an opportunity to buy food en route to the park.
The hike through the giant sequoias brings you right up close to these massive wooden monuments, some of which are over one thousand years old and measure up to 30 feet wide and 300 feet tall. Continuing into the park on a 1 1/2-hour guided tour, you will descend into Yosemite Valley, the most famous and photographed part of Yosemite (thanks to the work of Ansel Adams).
Your guide will give you an orientation to the park and explanation of the itinerary and options for the next two days. After some free time in Yosemite Valley, you'll head for your base and set up camp. The day will end with drinks around the campfire whilst planning your next two days in the park.
Prepare breakfast and lunch, clean up camp and head off for a full day of hiking, sightseeing and exploring Yosemite's High Country. A group hike to May Lake and Mount Hoffman is one of the highlights. At the end of the day you'll head back to camp for dinner and time to unwind by the campfire. The odd campfire sing-song has been known to take place, so be prepared!
