Yosemite in fall

Fall visitors have exclusive access to the annual foliage show, where the Yosemite Valley’s deciduous trees pop with a dramatic display of color against their evergreen neighbors.

With summer crowds back to school and work, this is the prime season for uninterrupted adventures. Fall in Yosemite National Park is filled with quieter moments and a showcase of color. Whether rounding up a group and traversing the trails or planning a romantic escape with a special someone, Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite amplifies the exhilaration and enjoyment with special packages to experience the best of this rejuvenating and romantic time of year.

Fall visitors have exclusive access to the annual foliage show, where the Yosemite Valley’s deciduous trees pop with a dramatic display of color against their evergreen neighbors. Bigleaf maples create yellow outlines of riparian areas along the southern wall of Yosemite Valley, black oaks turn golden yellow to dark orange, and dogwoods take on red, pink and yellow autumn hues. The sugar maple near Yosemite Chapel turns brilliant red, creating an extravagant backdrop for photographs.

Guests can fill their days with exploration before retiring to the lodge for a relaxing spa treatment, intimate dining experience and the enjoyment of a local vintage by the warmth of one of Tenaya’s many fireplaces.

Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite offers a range of packages that appeal to autumnal activity enthusiasts. Lovebirds will “fall” in love with Tenaya Lodge’s cottages, the ideal place to enjoy a couples’ escape. Just a short walk from the main lodge’s amenities and activities, the cottages are nestled among fragrant incense cedars and towering sugar pines and feature romantic details like inviting fireplaces and private outdoor seating areas. Tenaya’s Fall Cozy Cottages package gives a VIP experience, offering a bottle of wine and chocolate-covered strawberries upon arrival, a Yosemite park pass, daily breakfast for two and a 20% discount for a couples’ massage at the luxurious Ascent Spa.

The Fall Spice & Everything Nice package includes nightly accommodations in a newly renovated premium lodge room and a 60-minute warming ginger massage or facial. This offer is fabulous for thawing the brisk fall chills. And in the late fall, guests can indulge in the Hot Toddy for the Body package. This sweet offer includes nightly accommodations in a renovated premium lodge room and a

60-minute maple butter massage or facial. Guests will love indulging in Tenaya’s special seasonal treats because they have all the spice and none of the calories.
