Private Yosemite Hike with Naturalist Guide

Detail Duration: 5 hours
Yosemite Wildflower Walking Tour
Meet at a prearranged location in Yosemite National Park in the morning for your 5-hour private tour, which can be customized to suit your fitness level and interests. You'll be greeted by your guide, a local expert in the region's natural history with more than two decades of experience leading tours in the Sierra Nevada. ?
Camera in hand, walk with your guide through Yosemite's meadows, whose diverse wildflowers attract pollinators and nature lovers alike, or hop in your own car and follow your guide in search of prime bird habitat. Along the way, your guide shares knowledge of favorite places and connects you with Yosemite's ecosystems. (See tour options below.)
Stop frequently to rest, learn about your surroundings, and fuel up with your pre-packed snacks, water and lunch (own expense). Then continue exploring the meadows, fields and forests of Yosemite before your tour ends at the starting point.
Wildflower Walk?
Yosemite is home to several unique species of wildflowers, which blanket the Sierra Nevada throughout spring and summer. With dynamic shifts in elevation, Yosemite is the perfect place to watch the progression of flowers as they move from the foothills to the high country. Hike with your guide to a region of the park with abundant blooms. Depending on the season, you may identify different species, including monkey flowers, tiger lilies, Indian paintbrush, shooting starts, asters, buttercups and lupines, each enchanting you with their brilliant displays of color and lovely scents.??
Birdwatching Outing?
If you love watching birds through your binoculars, you'll enjoy spotting some of Yosemite 's 262 species of birds, including 165 resident and migratory species, as you tour some of the park's most productive habitats. Drive your own vehicle, following your guide to locations where feathered friends are commonly spotted, and enjoy long stops at each site. The tour can be modified to search for certain target species, or to account for shifting bird populations. You might observe flocks of warblers, vireos, flycatchers and tanagers forage for insects, seeds and berries; listen to various birdcalls and songs; or learn about raptors like the sharp-shinned hawk and the elusive peregrine falcon.
