Yosemite Conservancy Outdoor Adventures

What makes Conservancy adventures stand out? We’ve been partnering with the park to offer high-quality programs for 50 years!  Our guides are Sierra Nevada experts dedicated to providing top-notch Yosemite experiences.  Join Yosemite Conservancy naturalists for backpacking treks, day hikes, astronomy programs, bird-watching tours and discover Yosemite’s “hidden gems” with expert naturalist-guides.

Scheduled courses:
Yosemite Conservancy works 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.

Custom Tours: 
Explore Yosemite your way during a tailored adventure with one of our guides. Our Yosemite experts draw on years of experience and a deep passion for the park, our programs range from easy to strenuous day excursions, private star gazing or campfires, to winter programs. You’ll get to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience — and give back to the park at the same time!

Custom Adventures start at $400 for a half-day and $700 for a full day for groups of 1-4 people.  Please inquire for larger groups.  Regardless of Yosemite National Park’s day-use reservation status, a booking with Yosemite Conservancy Outdoor Adventures will gain you admittance to the park.
