Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take a break and relax in the goodness of Mother Earth. From sea to shining sea, the U.S. isn’t short on beautiful scenery or majestic national parks. Millions visit breathtaking national parks like Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Zion, Glacier, and Grand Teton every year. There’s definitely plenty to see across the country. Every park is majestic in their own way with their unique attractions. There’s nothing quite like the view from Mather Point at Grand Canyon. And you can’t miss Old Faithful and the Grand Prismatic Spring at Yellowstone, the first national park in the world. There are 61 protected national parks in the U.S. and any one—or all—of them is worth a visit.
If you’re traveling in Northern California, there’s no doubt you need to stop by one of the country’s most beautiful places: Yosemite National Park. Yosemite has been hailed the “crown jewel” of the National Park Service. While there are many amazing areas to explore in Yosemite like the Tuolumne Meadows, Tunnel View, Cathedral Peak, Half Dome, and of course, El Capitan, it’s hard to pack all of that in one day on your own. If you’re looking for a condensed Yosemite experience that shows you all of its greatest hits, the one-day tour from Incredible Adventures is your ticket to adventure.

A one-day trip packed with adventure
Fourteen hours sounds like a long time for adventuring, but time goes by quickly when you’re exploring the many wonders of Yosemite. The actual time you’re at the park is five to six hours and the rest is travel. Pick up starts between 6:25-7:25 am from most San Francisco hotels. You’ll drive through California’s Central Valley and there might even be a stop at a Farmers Market for snacks. After arriving at the park, you’ll check out views from Tunnel view. Then you’ll make your way to the Valley for three to four hours of free time to explore on your own. You’ll have a 90-minute in-coach guided tour that focuses on the rock formations and waterfalls of the Valley. Some highlights of the tour include Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls, and Tunnel View.
The $149-per-person price includes the park entry fee. This trip allows a max of 13 people in the group, perfect for a family trip, team retreat, or any occasion! Buy Here
