Tour description provided by Viator

Explore the winter trails of Yosemite on a snowshoe hike for a truly memorable experience in this pristine wilderness! With easy-to-follow techniques and snowshoe gear provided, this tour is suitable for beginners and experts alike. You’ll learn about Yosemite from your experienced guide, gaining in-depth knowledge of the natural history of the famous park, and you'll capture great photos of the winter landscape. Bring your sense of adventure and see what the summer crowds are missing!

Snowshoeing offers you a way to see the park from a different perspective while enjoying outdoor winter fun and low-impact exercise. No experience is needed for this sport–if you can walk, you can snowshoe!

You’ll meet your experienced guide at the trail head where you will be provided with snowshoes, trekking poles and simple-to-follow techniques to get you out on the trail. Once you’re ready, strap on your snowshoes and follow your guide along quiet trails, experiencing the Sequoia Grove in its winter beauty. Get incredible views of snow-covered mountains and meadows as you hike, and have plenty of opportunities to stop for photos and rest breaks. Wildlife can be easier to spot in the winter landscape; throughout your hike, your guide will keep an eye out for signs of deer, coyote, bobcats, bears and other creatures that inhabit the area.
