California: 2021 Yosemite Park Expedition

Yosemite National Park offers a spectacular backdrop of green valleys, mountains and plains. Declared a national park in 1890, it is full of waterfalls and forests of centuries-old redwoods. It covers an area of over 760 hectares up to the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada. More than 3.5 million people visit it every year, who only visit the 7 miles of the Yosemite Valley. Thanks to our horses we will have the opportunity to visit much more, far from the tourist areas, to experience true unspoiled nature.
