Yosemite National Park, California - Incentive Travel Destination for All Seasons

Yosemite National ParkWhat creates the perfect destination for incentive travel or corporate team building retreats? Most event planners will agree on a picturesque setting with a range of activities, excellent meeting facilities and the "wow factor". Yosemite National Park fits the bill on all counts. Let's take a quick tour.

For spring, summer and fall events and wilderness team building retreats, Yosemite National Park and Mariposa County offer:

  • caving
  • rafting
  • ziplining
  • horse riding
  • rock climbing
  • overnight camping

Hiking trails are available for all fitness levels from easy to strenuous.

Yosemite National Park, a protected territory, covers 1,189 square feet in California's Sierra Nevada. The landscape varies from forests with giant sequoias (the tallest trees in the world) to alpine meadows to stunning waterfalls (from April to June) and mountain peaks that soar over 13,000 feet.

The beauty of this destination is that, for part of the year, it is transformed into the perfect setting for winter retreats and events, a winter wonderland where corporate groups can experience:

  • skiing
  • tubing
  • snowshoeing
  • snowboarding

For a special treat, groups can go ice skating at the Curry Village Ice Rink and then warm up at the outdoor fire ring with S'mores and hot chocolate.

Hotels with facilities for business meetings and corporate events range from luxury resorts (e.g. Ahwahnee Hotel, Yosemite Lodge and nearby Tenaya Lodge) to casual accommodation at Curry Village. Overnight camping facilities are available at the High Sierra Camps and the Housekeeping Camp.
