A very important feature of our Yosemite National Park adventure is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with fewer travelers for more intimate and authentic nature and wildlife encounters.
Our guests have the option to take this trip on a private basis, traveling with just their selected travel companions. Refer to the Trip Pricing section above for details.

This adventure does not require a particularly high degree of physical fitness. However, please be aware that hiking is the main activity, with two or three excursions per day, totaling 5–10 miles. Hikes on Day 2 are near sea level. Hikes in Yosemite Valley (Days 3-5) will take place at an elevation of approximately 5,000 feet, and hikes on Days 6 & 7 will be at approximately 8,000-9,500 feet. Hikes near Mono Lake are at an elevation of approximately 6,400 feet. In order to participate fully, travelers should be able to walk unassisted for at least 2.5 miles at a time over uneven terrain, with moderate climbs (up to 200 feet of elevation gain per mile) required on some hikes. Guests can usually choose between more or less strenuous hikes. There will also be scenic drives over a high pass with steep drop-offs, so any traveler who experiences vertigo should take that into consideration. We will rise early and often include activities well into the evening in order to take advantage of times when fewer park visitors are present. There will be opportunities for optional canoeing and a float trip that requires the ability to enter and exit small boats on calm water.
Important Information About This Trip
You should also be aware that we spend a fair bit of time driving in vans on this trip. Why is that the case, when the goal is spending time in nature, not vehicles? Well, it turns out that it’s necessary in order to maximize your experience—to make sure you get to all the celebrated sights you’ve come to see. We know you don’t want to miss any Yosemite highlights—nor would we want you to! That means we must get you from one sector of this vast park to another via driving. You can trust us to craft routing and timing that includes plenty of rest stops, viewpoints and nature interludes during those transfers.
To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
