  • Day 1: San Francisco & Lake Tahoe

    Head for the hills and the shores of Lake Tahoe and discover why it is the choice destination for locals to kick back and relax. Swim, and enjoy a myriad of water-based activities in this picturesque setting and top off your evening with an optional sunset catamaran cruise before trying your luck on the Nevada side's many clubs and casinos.
    Accommodation: Camping included

  • Day 2: Yosemite National Park

    After crossing the 10'000 ft Tioga Pass, we get our first glimpse of this incomparable landscape of glacier carved cliffs and cascading waterfalls. Make your way to Yosemite's famous Nevada Falls for unparallel views of El Capitan's sheer granite rock face.
    Accommodation: Camping included | Meals: Breakfast & lunch included

  • Day 3: Yosemite National Park & San Francisco

    Departing Yosemite, we stop at a grove of towering Redwoods. Another impressive display of mother nature's handiwork, these are the tallest trees in the world, growing to over 120 metres in height. We finish our journey back in the 'City by the Bay', famous for its Golden Gate Bridge.
    Meals: Breakfast & lunch included.

    The arrival time in San Francisco depends on each group, but we generally aim for a 3:00pm arrival. If you decide to fly out this day, please do not book a flight before 8:00 pm which will give you enough time to catch a shuttle from the hotel to the airport and be there 2 hours before departure.
