Trip Info

Yosemite National Park has entranced artists, climbers, painters, and explorers for thousands of years. Formed by millennia of turbulent geological forces, its granite cliffs and massive giant sequoia groves provide a backdrop for a trip like none other. Spend five days in the Sierra and exploring the trails of this special place and retire at night to a cozy heated tent in the shadow of Half Dome.

Weather

Summer in Yosemite is generally quite mild during the day and can still get quite cold in the evenings. Daytime temperatures in June usually peak around the low to mid 80s (depending on elevation) with nighttime lows dropping as low as the mid 50s to upper 40s at higher elevations. Rain is not uncommon though most days are sunny or overcast. Snow on trails may stick around in higher elevations so muddy conditions are likely on some hiking days.

Group 

Good Trippers can be any age but most of our travelers are in their 30s – 50s.

We get families, couples and friends, but most of our travelers come solo! We have trips for all abilities, just make sure to review the Intensity section for information about what to expect on your trip. 

All public trips are 18+. If you’re traveling with kids, we’d be happy to make any itinerary private! Email info@goodtripadventures.com.

Intensity – Moderate

Hiking days will usually include about 6 total hours on the trail, covering anywhere from 5-8 miles on the day. This trip includes three days of hiking back-to-back so it’s best for travelers who are comfortable being active for most of the day, multiple days in a row. Some hiking experience is recommended.

Accommodations

  • Four nights in an accessible, large, heated safari tent in Curry Village
  • Price is based on triple occupancy accommodations
  • Single supplement is available for an additional $850 per person and subject to availability

Flights

Please plan to arrive at Fresno Yosemite International Airport by 2:00 PM PST on Day 1. Your guide will pick you up shortly after arrival. Alternatively, your guide can collect you from your accommodation or another central point in Fresno (within 30 minutes of airport) by 1:00 PM PST if you choose to arrive a day early.

Your guide will transport the group to the airport to arrive by 2:00 PM PST on Day 5. Please plan a departure after that time. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to book a hotel, please be prepared to find personal transportation to the airport (via Lyft, taxi, etc).

Travelers are also welcome to drive from southern California if that is more convenient. If you choose this option, you’ll meet your guide at your camping accommodations in the park.

Itinerary

Day 2

This morning, we’ll head out on the trails of Yosemite for a full day of hiking in the valley. The day will include several short, mild hikes along the valley floor with stops to see points of interest such as Bridalveil Falls, El Capitan, Half Dome, and Mirror Lake. Our final trails are selected based on our group’s needs and experience level but will include paved options.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 3

Yosemite is famous for its unparalleled rock climbing and its granite walls are the perfect place for both new and experienced climbers alike! We’ll meet up with our climbing guides for a day on the rock. All equipment is included and our guides will be ready to adapt to climbers of all experience levels and abilities. Between climbs, you’ll be able to relax and take in the beautiful scenery all around you.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 4

Today, we’ll head out for a drive to Yosemite’s high country! Our final destination will depend on park conditions but will likely be either along Tioga Pass or Glacier Point Roads. We’ll spend our day exploring alpine meadows and seeing the beautiful Sierra range from above. Our hike today will also be tailored to our group. Our day also includes a visit to see the massive and beautiful Giant Sequoia trees – some of the largest and oldest living organisms in the world!

Meals: B, L, D

Day 5

We’ll kick off our day with an optional bike ride along the Valley Loop trail, exploring more trails through the forest and meadows on the valley floor. After lunch back at basecamp, we’ll head out onto the water of the Merced for a half day rafting! Adaptive equipment for both activities is available and included.

Meals: B, L, D

Day 6

It’s time to say goodbye to Yosemite! Be sure to take in some final views as we drive out of the valley and head back to Fresno for our departure.
