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 restrooms 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 Valley’s attractions. For just a little sacrifice, you get a great payback in convenient location, with no commute time, and more time being so close to Yosemite’s world famous landmarks! 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, transportation to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley Tour and drop-off at Yosemite Lodge, where you gain your independence for 24 hours. Tour vehicle has limited space for luggage, so try to keep it small! The next day, meet another tour group at the same time and place, and finish the day with them and return to San Francisco. Overnight Yosemite National Park tours are a great way to spend time doing activities that our guided 1-day tours don’t have time for, such as rafting down the Merced river, learning rock climbing on the beautiful Yosemite granite cliffs, or relaxing on an open tram tour of Yosemite Valley all at your own leisure. In the 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.

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.

Yosemite Two Day Tour from San Francisco - Tent Cabin
– Stacy W. on 05/03/2015

I went to Yosemite with extranomical for a two days trip. It's definitely the right choice especially for solo traveller like me. They have comfortable vehicles and really nice guides. I went there with Nick who is very knowledgeable and back with Ben the next day, he was very humorous and you can tell he likes gourmet! There are many choices for overnight traveller to stay, in or outside the valley. I recommend in the valley cause you'll see more. After spending a wonderful morning with the group, you'll have the time after 3pm and the next morning on your own. Go hiking! The mountain is calling! I stayed in the Curry Village tent cabin, they have shower and restroom near the cabin. Then I hiked to the lower Yosemite Fall and Mirror Lake. The museum and Indian Village are also worth to pay a visit to. If you have the newspaper from the guide, there are activity schedule in it, check and go walking with some rangers or have a photography workshop!
