Explore Yosemite your way during a tailored adventure with one of our guides. You’ll get to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience — and give back to the park at the same time! As with all our programs, proceeds from Custom Adventures help support important work in Yosemite.

What sets us apart? We have a long history of providing high-quality visitor programs in Yosemite. Our Yosemite experts draw on years of experience and a deep passion for the park to provide top-notch service on guided hikes, backpacking trips, evening programs and more. Plus, as long as the current reservation system is in effect, your Outdoor or Custom Adventure registration fee includes your day-use reservation — no separate permit application is required to enter the park!

COVID-19 safety procedures

We’ve adjusted our safety protocols in response to the ongoing pandemic. As always, we’re committed to ensuring the health and safety of our adventure participants and instructors. For all adventure programs, we’re implementing strict safety measures that align with the latest federal, state and local guidelines. Safety procedures include asking participants to maintain at least 6 feet of physical distance from others, wash or sanitize hands frequently, and avoid touching shared surfaces and objects. If you’re considering joining one of our adventure programs, please review our COVID-19 procedures.
