The hotel was built in 1927 and it's spectacular views, architecture, and iside decorations along with excellent service have earned it the premiere lodge classification. When staying at the Ahwahnee, you are just minutes away from Yosemite activities and sights. There is a free shuttle that takes you through the valley and to all Yosemite sights and activities like horseback riding, rock climbing or nature hikes. The Ahwahnee Hotel sells out in advance – we recommend you book early! 

Tour includes San Francisco Hotel pick-up, transportation to Yosemite National ParkYosemite 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 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 by the natural beauty, and there are times when you might feel you have the place to yourself.
