3-Day Yosemite Camping Adventure from San Francisco
On Day Two you will enjoy a full day of hiking, sightseeing and exploring Yosemite's stunningly beautiful High Country. See such iconic Yosemite sights such as Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and Tunnel View. Take a gentle stroll to May Lake, a picturesque High Sierra lake, and head onwards to Mount Hoffman (snow conditions depending) and take in the 360-degree view of the surrounding mountain landscape. At the end of the day you will head back to camp for dinner and time to unwind by the campfire.
Day Three is a free day, with the itinerary based on the interests of the group. Choose from a number of great hikes, rent a bike, or simply relax in the shade by the emerald green Merced River. In May, June and early July, you also have the option of joining a whitewater rafting trip on the Merced River (additional cost, and depending on conditions). After a full day in the great outdoors, head back to San Francisco refreshed and revitalized from your trip to Yosemite National Park.

A well organised and extremely enjoyable three days in Yosemite. Our guide Leo shared huge amounts of information with us, and was full of lots of local stories. Camping was great fun - as was swimming in the river. This was a brilliant way to see Yosemite - I only wish we could have had a longer trip as there is just so much to see and experience.
