Yosemite hikers learn about Sierra birds and flowers with an expert guide on a Yosemite Conservancy Custom Adventure


Our naturalists know the park better than anyone — and they can’t wait to share their expertise with you! Take a guided hike with our Yosemite experts to get an insider’s perspective on the park’s icons and hidden gems. Choose a gentle walk, an immersive full-day hike, or something in between. Throughout your experience, your Conservancy naturalist guide will show you Yosemite’s wonders, from native plants and wildlife to cultural and historic sights. Full-day and half-day programs are available.

Let us create your perfect Yosemite experience, tailored to your interests and needs.
