HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Escape the tourist crowds with an itinerary designed to show you the very best that Yosemite National Park has to offer, while still expertly avoiding the busiest areas.
  • Hike at your own comfort level with options for alternate routes and a schedule that eases you in – your first hike is an easy one, allowing you to go slow before tackling more serious trails.
  • Learn about the important work being done by Yosemite Conservancy, with an educational guided walk through the historic Ahwahnee village, where you’ll learn about Native American heritage and the park’s conservation efforts.
  • Forgo the camping sites typical for most visitors to Yosemite and instead rest your feet each evening in a rustic mountain resort that boasts unforgettable views and plenty of charm and character.

You will travel through San Francisco and Yosemite National Park in the USA. "Walk Yosemite National Park" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Pam's review for another Intrepid Travel tour
“This tour, Taste of Tasmania (Original), covered a lot of Tasmania in 6 days, which is where I felt it was rushed. We arrived in Launceston late afternoon, and left early next morning. I would have liked to spend a day exploring the area. Other than that it was amazing, a good walk/hike almost every day, so be aware if your not fit before you start this trip , you will be by the time you reach spectacular Freycinet National Park.
all in all a great tour.”

“The Best of Chile trip was one of the most amazing trips we've ever taken! We visited breath-taking places, experienced the local culture, met some of the friendliest people and enjoyed the unique cuisine that Chile had to offer. We would definitely come back!”

Is this trip right for you:
  • This is a walking trip; a good fitness level will help you enjoying all included walks and activities.
  • Yosemite Park boasts warm summers but be prepared for colder evenings and possibly rainy days. Good clothing and appropriate footwear are a must.
  • This trip involves a fair amount of driving. Each day we will take a shuttle from our accommodation to the start of the hiking trails. On Day 3 the shuttles take approximately 2 hours one way.

  • On our final day we will reach San Francisco between 5 pm and 6 pm. This night’s accommodation is not included so please plan your departure accordingly, or pre-book a post-tour night.
  • This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
