Arrive at Yosemite National Park

The time has come to head out on the road to beautiful Yosemite! We recommend taking HWY 140, as it is very scenic, but also helps you get to grips with driving on the right! As the drive is long, it’s best to load up on snacks or stop off at one of the restaurants along the way.

After arriving at Yosemite, you’ll can check in to your lodge. It’s a cosy, yet simple place that is situated very close to the entrance of the national park. Why not head to Tunnel View, a popular spot that will give you amazing views of the whole valley, including El Capitan, Bridalveil Fall and Half Dome.

Free time

Today is completely free for you to explore as you wish and Yosemite has so many highlights at your fingertips. There is a free shuttle service that operates across the valley to help you reach some of the many highlights and landmarks such as Tunnel View, Bridalveil Fall and the Giant Sequoias at Mariposa Grove. If you’d prefer to drive yourself, you can. Don’t forget to purchase your National Park tickets once you enter.

If you’re hungry after all that exploring, we have a great spot for lunch at Bridalveil Fall, so pack up a picnic before you head out. It’s one of the most iconic waterfalls in the park. Yosemite is also home to the fifth highest waterfall in the world – the spectacular Yosemite Falls. There are also plenty of trails to wonder through and take in the majestic scenery!
