  • Day 3

    San Francisco to Yosemite National Park

    Drive Time: 3 hours, 40 minutes | Distance: 188 miles

    En-route to Yosemite, we thoroughly recommend a side trip to Columbia State Historic Park (and if time allows, the town of Murphys), for a glimpse into California’s Gold Rush Era. Highway 49 (named after the thousands of prospectors who pitched up in the Golden State in 1849 to find their fortune) has a treasure trove of Mother Lode towns with Old West architecture, historic artefacts, wine tasting and scenery that many visitors to the region miss.

  • Day 4


    Yosemite National Park is home to thousands of waterfalls—from towering spectacles with a half-mile of cascading water, to tiny streams of white that drop only a few feet. Spring is the best time to experience them, when the winter’s massive snowfall melts away and heads toward the Pacific Ocean. ​​

  • Day 5

    Yosemite to Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park

    Drive Time: 3 hours, 55 minutes | Distance: 172 miles

    Travelling south through Fresno, you may want to break up your journey and the Fresno County Fruit Trail or subterranean tunnels of the Forestiere Underground Gardens are a great way to stretch your legs.

  • Day 6

    Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks

    Sequoia and Kings Canyon are two of California’s most enchanting national parks, showcasing some of the Sierra’s most majestic mountains and gargantuan fauna (including Mount Whitney – the continental US’s tallest peak; the General Sherman Tree – the world’s largest tree by volume, and one of the world’s oldest at the grand old age of over 2300 years; and Kings River Canyon, one of North America’s deepest canyons).

    To appreciate as much of the parks’ rugged splendour as possible, you must hike a trail, taking in impressive collection of sequoias in Giant Forest, along The Generals Highway, and in Grant Grove. And don’t miss a visit to Sequoia’s secret underground world, the Crystal Cave, and a climb up Moro Rock for knock-your-socks-off views of the western half of Sequoia National Park and the Great Western Divide.​​
