Yosemite Valley - Yosemite Valley, CA
Trip Overview: Incredible hiking on this 8-day adventure in stunning Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. Glowing with vibrant, colorful beauty, the soaring landscapes of Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks are befitting of one of America’s great hiking destinations. We will travel to Sequoia National Park from San Francisco area. This dramatic landscape testifies to nature's size, beauty, and diversity--huge mountains, rugged foothills, deep canyons, vast caverns, and the world's largest trees. Yosemite NP is not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra.

Note on Itinerary: Although we do our very best to adhere to the schedule listed above, this itinerary is subject to change for numerous reasons beyond our control. (bad weather, trails closed are just some reasons we have had in the past trips) How physically fit do I need to be? Do I need to be an experienced hiker? The hikes that we will be doing will range from very easy to moderate/strenuous so some hiking experience is definitely necessary. Some hikes will cover long distances and significant elevation gain so it's important that you're comfortable with that. However, we will definitely be taking our time on the hikes so don’t worry if you consider yourself a slow hiker! Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns! Accommodations We will be staying in hotels and maybe Airbnb. Shared rooms with two/ three per room. Coed room only if the parties agree to share. Single Accommodations You can request single room accommodations, in which case you will be asked to pay for the whole room. This may only be possible with Hotel. If we use a Airbnb it might be difficult but will do our best to fill your needs. Trip Cost: We do our best to keep cost low with things like room sharing but, I would still plan to spend around $1670 to $1970 per person give or take for the 8 days. More if you have your own private room. This should include your airfare, hotel, van rental, gas, park fees, any gear rental, your food, and anything else. At this time this is just an estimated cost that I put on the higher side. I do feel it will be less but till I start booking rooms and stuff I won’t know for sure. Allow $325-425 USD for meals not included. Extra tours, gear rental, or guides can add to cost of this trip. Trip Deposit: After sign up, we'll be contacting you in May and asking for a trip deposit of $450. This is so we have the funds to start booking rooms and other requirements for this trip.
