Yosemite National Park - 2 Days/3 Nights

Our Yosemite weekend adventure bus tour includes a full day in Yosemite Valley, so you can take your pick of activities! Camp in the park, then explore the glacial terrain of Tuolumne Meadows. Top off your adventure with a relaxing trek through 2,000 year-old giant sequoias. This short wilderness camping tour will introduce you the best of one of America's most beautiful national parks!

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. Lush woodlands sustained by the Merced River contrast the sheer granite faces that make Yosemite world-famous. The park ranges from 2,000 - 13,000 feet (600 - 4000 meters) above sea level. Breathe in the fresh air and take a leisurely walk through the forest on the way to the Yosemite Museum, then take a peek inside the famous Awahnee Hotel.

Strong hikers can hike the Mist Trail to get up close to two thundering waterfalls. The Ansel Adams Gallery puts everything in black-and-white, while numerous trails offer many different full-color perspectives of the sights-don't forget good hiking shoes! Bicycles and rafts are also available for hire. Later, we prepare a gourmet dinner and enjoy sunset vistas before embarking eastward and setting up camp under the stars.

Wake up to another tasty Tortoise breakfast and an inspiring walk through the ancient giant sequoias. Afternoon destinations within the park for our second day are seasonally based. Walk through Tuolumne Meadows, go for a swim in the Tuolumne River, climb Lembert Dome, or walk up to Columbia Point for close-up views of Yosemite Falls and valley views of Half Dome.

After our last gourmet cookout dinner, we wrap up our adventures with a late-night stop at a Gold Rush-era saloon. We drive through the night and arrive back in San Francisco early the following morning.

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.
