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) from and to 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 the indoor and outdoor pools to relax. Enjoy a drink after your day exploring Yosemite at their Cocktail Lounge and have a delicious dinner at their 50's-era Diner. 


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, a tour of Yosemite Valley, and drop off at Yosemite Lodge, where you are free to roam the Park for 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 (fare extra and seasonal). 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 and back (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.
