There is access to the hostel kitchen. All beds have good quality fresh linens on real mattresses and pillows. Fresh top linens and blankets are included. Sleeping bags and sleep sheets are acceptable. Each cabin has modern commercial showers, sinks and toilets. Room phones and TV are not available in this class of accommodation.

All tours visit the Yosemite valley where Half Dome and El Capitan are located but Yosemite van tours usually will visit the Giant Sequoia Grove in addition to the valley.

IMPORTANT: There is an approximately 75 - 90 minute commute time on YARTS shuttle from where we drop you off in the park (Valley Lodge) to the hostel. YARTS shuttle will drop you off at bus shelter on SR 140 from where you walk about .25 miles (400 meters) first down and then up a hill, with no street lights. Please be prepared with a flash light if you are planning on getting back late and during winter time.

Yosemite Three Day Tour - Day One

6:00 - 7:00 AM
Pick-ups start in Fisherman's Wharf Area and continue in downtown San Francisco.

7:00 - 9:00 AM
Continuing east, see the windmills and descend into the San Joaquin valley and stop for a break and a snack.

9:15 - 11:00 AM
Begin the climb into the foothills, through gold country, and up into the Sierra Nevada range and Yosemite National Park.

11:00 - 1:00 PM
On your Yosemite tour, enjoy the amazing views of the valley, El Capitan, Half Dome, and the Yosemite Falls. Enjoy a hike to one of the park's waterfalls or lakes, or relax at the visitor's center where there are museums, restaurants, and the Ansel Adams Gallery.

1:00 - 5:00 PM

Your independence begins. Check out your options, check your bags, and check out Yosemite! And check your YARTS schedule for departure times, because you are staying outside the Park!


Check into the hostel, have a nice dinner, sit by the fireplace, relax, have a brew, and get a good night's sleep so you can get up early for another exciting day in Yosemite.

Yosemite Three Day Tour - Day Two


Get up early, and get ready for your second exciting day! Walk to the YARTS stop and get back into the Park. Check the schedule & be early.

All Day

You decide! Get some maps, talk to the rangers or the staff at the Village and the Lodge and get some ideas. DO NOT miss the last YARTS bus out! Ask for schedule updates.

Be prepared to walk on ice and snow - bring warm clothes, waterproof hiking boots, and mittens! Hike the valley, climb to the Top of Yosemite Falls, or take the Mist Trail beside the roaring Merced River. (Be careful, and ask Park staff about trail conditions.)


Check the schedule and take YARTS back to the hostel, have a nice dinner, reflect upon the days experience, and get a good night's sleep so you can get up early for another exciting day in Yosemite.
