Experience the majestic beauty of Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, and the giant sequoias of Yosemite National Park on this awesome 15-hour adventure!
When you book our multi-day tour with a hotel room at Yosemite View Lodge, you get to stay right beside Yosemite National Park. In fact, if you were any closer, you would be in the park! All rooms are fitted with a phone and offer a breathtaking mountain view. There are also three swimming pools to take a dip in — one indoor pool and two outdoor pools that are open in the summer. Sit back and relax in the outdoor hot tub after a long day of exploring the park!
