If you were staying any closer to Yosemite National Park, you would be in the Park! Located right at the entrance to Yosemite, this tourist class lodge is perfect for those wanting to experience the wonders of Yosemite with vacation style amenities. Support mass transit and take the YARTS (not included in price, travel time is approx. 1 hour) to and from Yosemite Valley and then use the FREE Hybrid Shuttles to get around and see the sights! All rooms have a view of the mountains or the river, and have in-room A/C, phone, cable TV & HBO. Two outdoor swimming pools and one indoor pool are available to enjoy. Relax after your day of exploring Yosemite in one of their outdoor hot tubs!
Tour includes San Francisco hotel pick-up, transportation to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley Tour and drop-off at Yosemite Valley Lodge (previously Yosemite Lodge at the Falls), where you gain your independence for 24 hours. Tour van 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, wear the right shoes, and get some exercise, you will be greatly rewarded with the natural beauty. There may be times when you will feel like you have the place to yourself.
