As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
This itinerary aims to combat over tourism by visiting the less popular sections of Yosemite National Park, allowing you to still enjoy one of the USA’s most spectacular spots without contributing to the crowds. As a single-centre tour, you will be based in a mountain lodge throughout, minimising vehicle travel from place to place. Visit the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir and learn how controversy surrounding the construction of the dam lead to the creation of the US National Park Service.
Your base for this adventure is a locally owned and operated lodge – your visit will make a big impact in helping the local community bounce back from a dip in visitors caused by the pandemic and catastrophic fires in the region. Take a walk through Yosemite National Park with an expert guide from the Yosemite Conservancy. Your guide will let you know how the group advocates for the Native American Community and preserves their culture. Your guide will also fill you in on the crucial role Yosemite played in the USA’s conservationist movement.
