Group will depart Los Angeles in the morning and drive to Santa Monica. Choose to rent a Stand up Paddle board or surf board to get out on the water and enjoy some sun. Not in the mood for the beach? That's cool, maybe consider visiting the Santa Monica farmers market to stock up on all sorts of local goodies. Grab a quick bite to eat for lunch in Santa Monica and travel northwest to San Luis Obispo for a quick detour to see the chewing gum alley and to grab any last minute provisions before heading to our campsite for the night.
Today is all about Highway 1. Devote the entire day to seeing the best of the best along this famous route. Stop to see Elephant Seals, walk through Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, and make stops in Carmel and Monterey en route to the next destination. Later in the day set up camp in Santa Cruz.
Head out from camp in the morning and continue up Highway 1 towards Half Moon Bay. Enjoy a morning walk in the area before traveling further north to San Francisco where you can grab a late lunch before checking into your hotel. Your CEO will take you on a brief orientation of the city and the rest of the day is at your leisure.
Leave San Francisco behind this morning as you drive to Yosemite National Park. Along the way stop for some fresh produce at a farmer's market in the central valley. Once in the park hike to Lower Yosemite Falls before visiting the visitor centre. Finish the day with a stop at Tunnel View to see El Capitan, and Bridalveil Fall en route to your camp for the night.
Visit the Mariposa Grove in Yosemite and hike the trail through the old growth trees to see the famous Bachelor and Three Graces. Wander the famous Grizzly Giant loop which offers the largest Sequoia grove in the park.
Enjoy free time to walk the Lower Yosemite Fall Trail, Bridalveil Fall Trail, Wawona Meadow Trail, or Swinging Bridge Loop Trail. Relax under the towering granite monoliths of Half Dome or El Capitan. On the way back to camp, search for climbers on the sheer rock face of El Capitan.
Today is all about getting active and exploring the landscapes of Yosemite. Head out on a hike to Vernal or Nevada Falls or opt to rent bikes and cruise around the valley.
This park is a hiker's paradise filled with different options for every skill level. From miles of trekking to short walks featuring amazing views, you won't have a hard time finding a trail to set out on and enjoy. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife and make sure to take plenty of pictures. In the evening relax around the fire and swap stories with your group.
Bid farewell to Yosemite this morning and get ready for some ocean waves and sand between your toes as the group heads south to Hermosa Beach. Travel through the rolling hills and vastness of the Central Valley and arrive at the Pacific coast just in time to walk the beach during golden hour and grab some delicious dinner by the sea. After the forests of Yosemite the beaches of southern California will be a welcome change for some time to relax and recharge. So suit up, grab a towel, find a volleyball, and live out those California beach fantasies with your friends.
Live the California dream as you wake up to the distant sound of waves crashing against the sand. Then, suit up and get ready for your surf lesson where you'll learn a thing or two about what it takes to make riding those waves look so easy.
Afterwards, enjoy free time on Hermosa Beach to lounge in the sun, walk out to the pier, or find a beachfront cafe with a table outside for some people watching. Or choose to rent bikes or surf boards and continue the adventure. Your only dilemma today should be deciding which burrito place you want to eat at.
In the morning travel to Los Angeles. The adventure ends upon arrival.
