Group Size
Limited to 14 Travelers with Two Expedition Leaders
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.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
Accommodations, services of Nat Hab's professional Expedition Leader(s) and local staff, transportation in Nat Hab's North American Safari Trucks and other vehicles, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, most gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, all activities and entrance fees, all taxes, permits and service fees.
Not Included
Travel to and from the start and end point of your trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees (if any), optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry and internet, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes (if any), optional travel protection and medical evacuation insurance.
Physical Requirements
Moderate
This adventure requires a moderate degree of physical fitness. Hiking is the main activity, with two or three excursions per day, totaling 4-8 miles. In order to participate fully, travelers should be able to walk unassisted for at least 2 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. Most hikes and the majority of the trip will take place at an elevation of approximately 5,000 feet. 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. Water levels permitting, trips departing in June may have the opportunity for a float trip that requires the ability to enter and exit small boats on calm water.
Important Information About This Trip
We have taken great pains to create a rich and captivating itinerary in this iconic destination while attempting to avoid crowds as much as possible. However, Yosemite in the spring and summer is always going to be crowded, and there will be times that we simply cannot escape substantial crowds if we want to see the globally renowned natural sites that draw so many visitors from around the world—this is especially the case in Yosemite Valley. But we also employ strategies to help attain the most meaningful experience possible! Our Expedition Leaders know the Yosemite region intimately, including less-traveled corners away from the heaviest crowds. We seek to maximize quieter time at park highlights by waking very early to beat the crowds, and enjoying excursions into the evening when day-trippers have left and other visitors have retreated to their hotels and campsites. Due to extremely limited parking in Yosemite Valley, we use the park shuttle service to get around while staying in the valley. This is often a very crowded experience, but it is by far the fastest way to move around in Yosemite Valley.
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we strongly recommend that all guests have, at minimum, medical evacuation insurance for this program. While this is not required, we make this strong suggestion in the interest of our guests' safety. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage.

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.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrival: Arrive in Fresno, CA by 3 pm in order to attend a welcome dinner beginning at 6 pm on Day 1.
Departure: You may depart Fresno, CA after 2 pm on the final day.
