Group Activities for Adventurers

Yosemite group activities for people who like to break a sweat and have fun doing it include rock climbing, cycling, and rafting. Yosemite is world-famous for its rock climbing, and guided adventures are available for groups. There are also rock climbing team-building adventures available for company retreats. If cycling is more your thing, Yosemite has countless trails for novice and experienced bikers alike. Your group might also enjoy white water rafting if you're planning on taking your group to Yosemite in the summer.

Group Activities for Sight-Seers

For those groups that prefer a slightly more relaxed time, Yosemite group activities include hikes, walks, and tours. Take your group on a guided photography tour or a bird-watching excursion. You can also choose one of dozens of hikes throughout the park on which to see the beauty of Yosemite with your group. If hiking isn’t to your taste, you can also choose to take a guided tram or bus tour through the park. Bus and tram tours include nighttime stargazing tours, historic tours of the Yosemite, and nature tours.

Group Activities in Winter

Winter is a great time to take your group to Yosemite. Yosemite National Park gets the least number of visitors in the winter, meaning you'll be able to enjoy the beauty of the park with minimal crowds. Winter is also the only time that Yosemite's ski area is open. You can take your group up to the Badger Pass ski area to enjoy a day of skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, sledding, or even ice-skating. Consider taking a guided cross-country skiing tour from Badger Pass to Glacier Point. Cross-country skiing is one of the only ways to get to Glacier Point during the winter. From Glacier Point you'll have a breathtaking view of Yosemite Valley. Whatever you choose to do with your group in Yosemite, consider making your Yosemite lodging reservations with Scenic Wonders.
