What is a Small Group Adventure?

Echo Adventures has made its name in the Yosemite guide industry by offering dependable, 5 star, private adventures with our local naturalists through our socially and environmentally sustainable worker owned cooperative, but NOW we are applying that same level of service and dependability to a series of seasonal public tours catered to solo travelers, price conscious guests, groups with tight schedules, or guests that want to further reduce their environmental footprint!


In 2021, Echo launched our group tours! These pre-scheduled, multi sport, small group adventures can accommodate groups up to 9 people and will run each weekend between Memorial Day and Labor Day. They start at $100.00 for adults and $75.00 for kiddos and include meals, transportation from our Yosemite Basecamp, a local experienced guide, your entrance fees and more! Advance bookings are highly recommended, but we will always accommodate last minute adventurers if we have space!


The Big Trees Hike & BBQ was a huge hit!! It was just us and one other family with a kid the same age as our daughter. Bryant was patient, funny and answered all of our questions about the trees and Yosemite. The BBQ was delicious and my son enjoyed swimming while lunch was cooking. We were back in time to catch our flight from Sacramento that evening, so it feels like we got an extra day out of our vacation. 5 stars from the Millers! - Stacy Miller, Hershey, Pennsylvania

In 2022, we have added a small group fly fishing adventure! This adventure is a great way to learn to fly fish is an intimate group setting with no more than 5 people, and is great for guests that want a budget friendly fly fishing adventure or would rather provide their own transportation!
