2021 Traveler’s Choice on Trip Advisor – Over 1,200 5 Star Client Reviews!
Looking for the ultimate Half Dome experience? Our 4-day Half Dome backpacking trips are specially designed to make your journey to the summit as spectacular as possible!
This guided tour kicks off in Yosemite Valley, where visitors are enraptured by iconic sights like El Capitan and Yosemite Falls towering above them. From there we’ll hit the trail and guests will hike and camp alongside fabled waters like Sunrise Lakes or the Merced River, experiencing first-hand what John Muir deemed California’s “noblest forests.”
Our expert guides make your experience 5-star with delicious camp-cooked cuisine and comfort provisions around camp, while on-trail pointing out the lesser-known factual gems that surround you. The magic climaxes either on the final evening or the final morning, when you’ll climb the cables up Half Dome’s towering summit for a truly spectacular sunrise or sunset.
Put it all together and we can say without a doubt: there’s no backpacking experience quite like our Yosemite Valley to Half Dome Guided Tour!
