Yosemite National Park Holidays

Yosemite National Park is one of the United States’ crowning glories. Breathtaking vistas, Giant Redwood trees, abundant wildlife, dramatic cliffs and alluring waterfalls hold an almost magical draw, casting their spell over new and seasoned visitors alike. Yosemite National Park holidays take you to a place where inspiration will find you once more; a place to breathe and just be.

Start your Yosemite holiday by heading straight to the heart of the national park: Yosemite Valley. Look out at Tunnel View and gaze open-mouthed whilst comprehending the majesty of the scene; the incredible monolith known as El Capitan and the graceful flow of Bridalveil Falls, with the distinct granite Half Dome in the background.

Adventure awaits in the Yosemite National Park

Yosemite holidays are both the adventure of a lifetime and the chance to lose yourself in nature. Climb up to Yosemite Point, passing views of the valley floor before you reach the top, where surreal panoramic vistas await. Explore Yosemite Valley on a ranger-led tour or go it alone and hike some of the many picture-perfect trails.

Get the most out of your holiday, take a Yosemite tour and bask in the wonder of the park and hike among the beauty, stopping to take in a grove of stunning Giant Sequoia trees. Once you’ve had a dose of serenity at Yosemite, why not explore some of California’s other gems? Just a 4 hour drive away, San Francisco waits to be discovered, with its iconic Golden Gate Bridge and seafront attractions.
