As part of our longstanding partnership with Yosemite National Park, we have decades of experience offering immersive educational programs. Our guides are experts in their fields, and they have created one-of-a-kind adventures for clients including Backroads, Abercrombie & Kent, Off the Beaten Path, American Excursionist, and MT Sobek.
We look forward to helping your tour group connect with Yosemite’s natural wonders during a private half- or full-day outing.
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 one of our adventure programs, please review our COVID-19 procedures.
In accordance with CDC guidelines, we will be limiting group sizes to nine visitors plus one naturalist guide (10 people total). If you have more than nine guests, we will need to schedule multiple naturalists in order to adhere to the maximum group size. Please contact us for more information and pricing options.
What will your group’s experience look like? We offer a range of options to fit your group’s needs and interests, from slow-paced, low-mileage plans to more challenging routes. Read our sample itineraries for inspiration, then work with our team to create a trip tailored to your clients.
