Outdoor Adventures

If you’re looking for the best thing to do in Yosemite, join a Yosemite Conservancy Outdoor Adventure! Our naturalist guides have lifetimes of Yosemite experience and insider knowledge.

Join us for backpacking treks, day hikes, photography workshops, bird-watching tours and discover Yosemite’s “hidden gems” with our expert naturalist-guides. We work hand-in-hand with the park to create unforgettable experiences. Camping reservations, wilderness permits and park entry fees are included so all you have to do is show up! Proceeds from your Outdoor Adventure will help ensure Yosemite’s protection for future generations.

For more information and to register, email adventures@yosemiteconservancy.org, or call 209-379-2317 x10.
