Tent Cabins in Curry Village provide a comfortable, inexpensive accommodation right inside Yosemite National Park, in the shadow of Glacier Point and Half Dome! Each tent cabin can accommodate up to 5 people. There are two central shower buildings and rest rooms are even closer. Curry Village has an outdoor pool, a mountaineering store, several restaurants, and a well stocked general store. You are also welcome to bring or buy your own food so long as it is not kept in the cabin, but stored in a bear-proof locker (provided free of charge at Yosemite). Curry Village is a great way to be close to nature, just minutes away from Happy Isles, the Mist Trail, and a short FREE Hybrid Shuttle ride away from the Yosemite Village, Yosemite Falls and most of the Yosemite Valley's attractions. For just a little sacrifice, you get a great payback in convenient location, and several hours a day more time being so close to Yosemite’s world famous landmarks, because there is no commuting out of the park! A tent cabin is just like it sounds – a wooden frame with canvas covering, four single beds, bug screen windows with privacy covers, one light bulb, and a lockable door. There are a few heated ones for the winter, but most are not.

Tour includes San Francisco Hotel pick-up (tour van has limited space for luggage, so try to keep it small!), transportation to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley Tour and drop off at Yosemite Lodge, where you are free to roam the park for a full 72 hours. The Four Day Yosemite National Park tour gives you 2 full uninterrupted days you don’t get with the 1- or 2-day tour. Do some all-day hiking to the top of Yosemite Falls, or if you are really in shape (and get an early start), to the top of Half Dome, or only part way, to the top of Nevada Falls or Vernal Falls - things that are hard to fit into 2 half-days or less. You could also slow it down and go rafting down the Merced River, or ride around on an open tram tour of Yosemite Valley. Mirror Lake is just a short uphill walk, and you can just take it easy and walk around the beautiful valley floor, or bus it up to Glacier Point, or the Mariposa Grove (fare extra and seasonal). On the fourth day, meet another tour group, and finish the day with them and return to San Francisco.

In winter, it is still a great time to visit. Some locations are inaccessible, but the scenery is completely different – the Valley itself is a winter waterfall wonderland. For someone willing to bundle up and wear the right shoes, and get some exercise, you will be greatly rewarded with the natural beauty, and there are times when you might feel you have the place to yourself.

* DURING WINTER MONTHS *
Winter clothes, especially shoes or boots with rubber soles and treads, are recommended.
We will always do what we can to make your trip enjoyable, but safety is “Job 1”, so the route and itinerary may be changed due to snow depth, road conditions, construction projects and detours.
Note: The Giant Sequoias hike on the Yosemite Tour is dependent on snow levels and trail conditions from October to April.

Luggage Policy: Customers are allowed up to 2 luggage items (1 carry-on & 1 personal item) free of charge. Each additional item will incur a $25 excess luggage fee. Maximum dimensions are 24” x 16” x 10” (60cm x 40cm x 25cm). Passengers must advise us of oversize luggage 48 hours prior to departure in order to guarantee the accommodation of the luggage on the vehicle.
