The Cedar Lodge is located 8 miles from the entrance of Yosemite Park and is great for those who want to experience the wonders of Yosemite with vacation style amenities. Take the YARTS (not included in price; travel time is approx. 65 minutes) 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 modem access, phone, cable TV & HBO, spa tubs and family units with kitchenettes. Private beach access to the Merced River is available as well as indoor and outdoor pools to relax. Enjoy a drink after your day exploring Yosemite National Park at their Cocktail Lounge and have a delicious dinner at their 50's-era Diner.
Tour includes pickup from your San Francisco Hotel, transportation to Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Valley Tour and drop-off at Yosemite Valley Lodge, where you gain your independence for 24 hours. Tour van has limited space for luggage, so try to keep it small! The next day, you will 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. During 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 might be times when you feel like you have the place to yourself.
