I did a private one-on-one hike with a guide to Half Dome. This was such an amazing experience! The guide was very knowledgeable regarding Yosemite, and I realized I wouldn't have completed it without the help of the guide. His expertise and calmness during the cables really enabled me to push through and complete this amazing hike!”

We were a group of 7 family members (ages 22-65 years old), for all of us was our first hiking/backpacking/camping experience. We all have such an amazing yet challenging experience, it was really worthy! Thank you so much to our guides Nicole and Jack for your cheers, your spirit, your cooking, your yoga time, your knowledge and for doing this family trip so great! We really enjoy it!!

I booked a guided hike for Clouds Rest as I was unsuccessful in my ballot for Half Dome. My friend was unable to make it so I decided to book a guided hike for myself. From beginning to end, Lasting Adventures was great. They replied to me quickly, and my guide was excellent! He offered me hiking poles in case I hadn't taken any and had plenty other essentials on hand.

This hike offers a little bit of everything, from meandering trails through majestic alpine forests to some of the most stunning panorama views Yosemite has to offer! Start off with a gorgeous walk through the north rim woods on a moderate, downhill trail surrounded by pine and fir forests, crossing two creeks along your way. You can extend the hike by taking a side tour to Indian Rock, where an immaculate arch will blow you away! Emerging from the woods, the hike takes visitors up to Indian Ridge for an expansive view of Tenaya Canyon and the Merced River Canyon. Nearing North Dome, the breathtaking scenery opens up to a larger-than-life view of Half Dome, with the best view of all coming from the peak of North Dome itself!
