Highlights

Yosemite Falls

Yosemite is home to North America’s five highest waterfalls, including Yosemite Falls, Ribbon Falls and Sentinel Falls. At 2450 feet, Yosemite Falls is the highest in North America and third highest in the world.

Half Dome Cliffs

This granite dome is located at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley and is Yosemite’s most familiar sight. Its granite crest rises more than 4,737ft above the valley floor.

Cathedral Rocks

So-called because they evoke the architecture of the Gothic cathedrals. Just behind these rocks are two columns of granite which stand 800ft high and 200 – 300ft in diameter. The summits of the rock and spires are about 3,000 feet above the valley.

El Capitan

An awesome 3500ft granite rock face, where you can watch rock climbers as they take on the ultimate 4-7 day climbing challenge.

Sierra Nevada

The tour journeys through this area where the discovery of gold by James Marshall started the California gold rush. On the way to Yosemite you’ll pass one of the country’s original gold towns.
