Snow-capped peaks will be the backdrop to your adventures in this fabulous, frosty trip.
You might think you know what to expect with a North American winter. After all, you’ve probably been watching these snow-capped vistas for years on screen. But nothing can quite prepare you for the magic of California in the colder months. In this trip you'll enjoy the great outdoors with enough activity to keep your cheeks rosy. Hike through the frosted wonderland of Yosemite Valley, see the golden gate bridge from beneath San Francisco’s famous mist and hit the slopes around Lake Tahoe.

Hike through a frosted valley in Yosemite National Park, where there’s more stunning vistas than you can poke a walking stick at with fewer people than the Summer months

Hit the slopes by foot, ski or snowboard in Lake Tahoe, breathing in the crisp smell of pine and snow
See the rugged Clark Ranges so close you could almost feel the rough rock beneath your fingers – if it weren’t for your gloves

Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
You'll be travelling in a van with a group of travellers on long journeys, so conditions may feel a little cramped. This is all part of the adventure though, and you might even make some long-term friends.
You'll need to possess a moderate level of fitness to participate in many of the included and optional activities featured on this trip.
It will be cold. Very cold. You'll need to make sure you have appropriate gear such as a pair of warm winter boots. See our packing list (http://www.intrepidtravel.com/au/packing-list) for a full suggestion of what to take.
