Your Example Itinerary
Fly from the UK to San Francisco.
Fabulous San Francisco is known for its welcoming, laid-back vibe. Discover the Ferry Building’s popular farmer’s market, the restaurants and sea lions of Pier 39 and the eclectic shops of Union Square before making use of your San Francisco Explorer Pass, which includes a choice of two attractions. Perhaps visit the Aquarium of the Bay, the Walt Disney Family Museum or cruise the waters of San Francisco Bay and gaze at the Golden Gate Bridge.
North America's largest alpine lake, Lake Tahoe is an idyllic summer retreat and bustling winter resort for families and adventurers alike. Winter brings action-packed cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and ice-skating, while summer is reserved for fishing, golf, hiking, mountain biking and swimming. All year round the lake’s south side hosts festivals and boasts a thriving casino and nightlife scene, while the north side offers a more laid-back ambience for families.
Nestled in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains, next door to the popular Mammoth Mountain ski resort, Mammoth Lakes is a stunning collection of snow-capped mountain peaks, evergreen forests and glassy lakes, with a couple of hot springs and a miniature canyon thrown in too. If you’re here in winter, skiing and snowshoeing are the main activities, while in summer it’s all about hiking, fishing, mountain biking and horse riding.
Yosemite National Park
Admire the spectacular mountain and lake scenery in Yosemite, the shining star of America’s national parks. Yosemite offers year-round adventures, with hikes among the wildflowers and waterfalls popular in spring and summer, drives to view the changing foliage colours in autumn and skiing the valleys in winter. This national park is truly spectacular, so get your camera ready for beautiful views at every turn.
Return to San Francisco for one final night before returning to the UK.
