Yosemite 2 Day Itinerary

Visiting Yosemite National Park is a bucket list experience that brings millions of people to California every year. Visitors come from all over to experience the picturesque landscapes and cascading waterfalls of this 700,000-acre park. Incredible Adventures has been offering trips to Yosemite for almost 30 years, and we are passionate about sharing the magic of this national park with California travelers. Our Yosemite 2 day itinerary is crafted by the people who know Yosemite best. Join us for a Yosemite guided tour, or simply follow our itinerary and hit the trails on your own!

Day 1 in Yosemite National Park: 

  • Begin the day with one of the most famous vistas in the Valley, Tunnel View
  • Make your way down into the valley and park in Curry Village, make sure you have enough water from one of the many refill stations, and head over to the Mist Trail
  • Hike along the Merced River until you reach the top of Vernal Falls, be careful; it’s called the Mist Trail for a reason!
  • Once you’re ready, head back down to Curry Village for lunch, there are many restaurants near Yosemite serving anything from grab-and-go wraps to pizza and burgers. 
  • After lunch, it’s time to immerse yourself in the history and geology of Yosemite at the Visitors Center, the Yosemite Museum, and the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite Village. There is also a moderately sized store in the Village with a plethora of ingredients, souvenirs, books, and beverages where you can stock up and pick out a Yosemite souvenir.
  • Follow the Lower Yosemite Falls Trail path and see the tallest waterfall in North America before eating dinner at the Mountain Lodge.
  • End the first day of your Yosemite 2 day itinerary by watching the sunset and stargazing in the open valley.

Day 2 in Yosemite:

  • Begin your second day bright and early with a hike to Upper Yosemite Falls; make sure to take snacks, water, and sunscreen! This hike is long and challenging but worth it for the view of the Valley from 2,000ft above.
  • Once you’ve taken in the vistas, make your way down to the Merced River for a refreshing dip and treat yourself to dinner and drinks at the Ahwahnee Hotel. Cheers to a wonderful trip in Yosemite!
