About
This Tour

Stand at the base of a tumbling 2,425-foot waterfall, a soaring 8,842-foot granite dome and a 3,000-year-old, 300-foot giant sequoia, and experience for yourself why John Muir described Yosemite as “…by far the grandest of all the special temples of Nature I was ever permitted to enter.”

  • Hike a scenic canyon to the confluence of the south and middle forks of the Tuolumne River for a refreshing dip beneath a waterfall
  • Try your hand at rock climbing and rappelling alongside an expert instructor
  • Let the spray of Vernal Falls cool your cheeks on a walk along the Mist Trail
  • Explore postcard-perfect lakes and sub-alpine meadows along Tioga Pass and Tuolumne Meadows, keeping an eye out for bighorn sheep
  • Walk amongst the aptly named Grizzly Giant and Fallen Tunnel sequoias in Mariposa Grove
  • Unwind with a well-earned plate of pan-seared rainbow trout or grilled flat-iron steak and a restful night’s sleep in the comfort of the historic Wawona Hotel

Everything was smooth and seemless, as always. Great directions, great encouragement, great hotels and food. We could not have wished for more in any way.

    A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

    • 1. The Yosemite Firefall: learn the history of an 88-year-old tradition deemed so dangerous that it was discontinued in 1968.
    • 2. Taft Point: jutting 1,500 feet over the valley, you can't beat the view from the Point.
    • 3. The trees! It took 15 Austin Adventures guests, hand in hand, to barely encircle one Giant Sequoia.
    • 4. The rock climbing: after a 60-foot rappel down the base of El Capitan, you and your kids both will have a new perspective on what you can accomplish.
