Our guide to Yosemite National Park in a Day

Situated 180 miles from San Francisco, Yosemite National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty, shaped by the power of glaciers.

Although it is best known for its high cliffs and stunning waterfalls, you will also find deep valleys, grand meadows, giant trees and vast wilderness areas within its boundaries.

Get an early start to the day and enjoy a view of the sunrise from over the Bay before continuing by coach to Yosemite National Park.

The four hour scenic drive to Yosemite takes you through the Central Valley, the most productive agriculture valley in America and then follows the beautiful Merced River to the Sierra Nevada Mountains where you enter Yosemite National Park.

Plenty of time is provided for photo opportunities, and experiencing nature's grandeur that is Yosemite.

Here are some of the sights you may discover at California's most famous National Park:

  • Yosemite Falls - At 2450 feet is the highest in North America & third highest in the world.
  • Half Dome Cliffs - A granite dome located at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley, it is Yosemite's most familiar sight. The granite crest rises more than 4,737ft above the valley floor.
  • Cathedral Rocks - Suggest the architecture of the Gothic cathedrals. Immediately behind these rocks are two “slender and beautiful columns of granite,” which are about 800ft high and 200 - 300ft in diameter. The summits of the rock and the spires are about 3,000 feet above the valley.
  • El Capitan - This is a 3500ft granite rock face where the group can watch rock climbers on the ultimate 4-7 day climbing challenge.

Throughout the tour your guide will amaze you with their knowledge of the sights, sound and history of this very special natural wonder!
