Descubre una cara (o dos o tres) de California que muchos visitantes nunca llegan a ver en esta aventura de nueve días por algunos de los mejores parques naturales del estado. Pasa de una sobrecarga sensorial a otra a medida que te adentras desde las deslumbrantes luces de Las Vegas a las impresionantes vistas del Valle de la Muerte, el Parque Nacional de las Secuoyas, el Parque Nacional Kings Canyon y el famosísimo Parque Nacional Yosemite. Harás muchísimo más que solo ver vistas; dispondrás de cantidad de tiempo para explorar los paisajes salidos de otro mundo del Valle de la Muerte y Yosemite, así como para observar las estrellas en el PN de las Secuoyas (que, precisamente, es lo que hizo que el primer editor a tiempo completo de National Geographic se diera cuenta de la importancia de conservar los parques nacionales). Tu aventura concluye con las vistas y los sonidos emblemáticos de una ciudad tan variopinta como San Francisco.

Itinerario - 9 Días

Día 1 Las Vegas

Llegada en cualquier momento.

Día 2 Las Vegas/Parque Nacional del Valle de la Muerte

Deja atrás el brillo y el glamour de Las Vegas, y viaja al Valle de la Muerte: el lugar más bajo, más seco y más cálido de Norteamérica. Maravíllate ante los extremos de este paisaje y, si quieres, realiza un recorrido en jeep.

Día 3 Parque Nacional del Valle de la Muerte/Parque Nacional de Yosemite

Begin the day searching for animal tracks amid the otherworldly landscape of Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, where shifting sands soar up to 100 feet high. Then discover Father Crowley Vista Point, where an easy hike offers an epic payoff: a sweeping view over Rainbow Canyon and Panamint Valley. Keep an eye out for fighter jets practicing between the cliffs. Continue around the Sierra Nevada mountains to California’s Sequoia National Park.

Día 4 Parque Nacional de Yosemite

Enjoy a full day to explore the legendary trees of Sequoia National Park. Walk in the shadow of its formidable giants—including General Sherman, the planet’s largest known living single-stem tree—alongside a naturalist from Sequoia Parks Conservancy. On an afternoon hike along Big Tree Trail, hear how, in 1916, National Geographic deeded tracts of giant trees here to the National Parks Service for safekeeping. This evening, return to the park for an evening of stargazing with a local expert; or, if skies are cloudy, set out on a nighttime walk to witness nocturnal life.

Día 5 Parque Nacional de Yosemite/Parque Nacional de las Secuoyas

Embark on a spectacular drive, watching as the scenery changes from towering sequoias to one of the deepest canyons in the United States. On a journey from Grant Grove to Cedar Grove, be awed by the glacially carved Kings Canyon, and keep an eye out for the endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep and other majestic wildlife.

Día 6 Parque Nacional de las Secuoyas/Monterey

Head north through the Sierras to the south entrance of Yosemite National Park, a natural wonderland of picturesque valleys and ancient granite formations. Stop at the trailhead to Sentinel Dome and climb to the pinnacle for a picnic lunch and breathtaking 360-degree views of Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Falls. Or, go on a hike in the old-growth forest of Mariposa Grove. Continue to Glacier Point for another dramatic vista—and a closer view at iconic Half Dome. Later enjoy a viewing of Free Solo, a National Geographic film based on climber Alex Honnold and his quest to ascend El Capitan without ropes or a safety net.

Día 7 Yosemite National Park

This morning, join a Yosemite Conservancy naturalist on a guided excursion around the park, gaining an insider’s perspective on the human, natural, and geological history of the region. Hike through the heart of Yosemite while hearing about its flora and fauna, and learn how this rugged backcountry became the U.S.’s first protected state park in 1864—and, with the help of John Muir, a national park in 1890. Enjoy the rest of the day on your own; choose your own adventure amid majestic waterfalls, crystal-clear lakes, lush meadows, and pristine groves. Keep an eye out for glacial erratics, rock climbers, and a diversity of wildlife. Opt to visit the Ansel Adams Studio or relax by the river with Half Dome as the backdrop.

Día 8 Yosemite National Park/San Francisco

Pass through the Central Valley of California, stopping at a local farm stand to sample some of the region's best produce. Drive over the Bay Bridge on the way into one of America's most vibrant cities, San Francisco. Settle into the hotel before heading out on a CEO-led guided driving tour of the city. Take in the epic view from atop Twin Peaks, walk across a portion of the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge, and stroll past the Painted Ladies—a “postcard row” of Victorian houses that stand as symbols of the city. This evening, consider joining an optional sunset sail in the San Francisco Bay, departing from Fisherman’s Wharf to glide past notorious Alcatraz Island and underneath the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge.

Día 9 San Francisco

Salida en cualquier momento.
