This is an excellent chance to visit California’s most popular national park in its winter glory, and the perfect time to visit the park without the crowds. We will set up base camp in our HEATED tent cabins in Curry Village and take side trips to visit waterfalls, explore the valley and take in some great vistas. At night you can choose to ice-skate under the stars or attend a ranger-led presentation. Monday we will say good-bye to the Valley and then snowshoe among Giant Sequoias. Yosemite is a winter wonderland!
