Yosemite in Winter
Trip Overview
Experience the beauty of Yosemite National Park during winter! Photograph this iconic park during its least visited season when the vastness of Yosemite is covered in pillows of white snow. Winter is an absolutely magical time to visit Yosemite and work on some incredible landscape photography opportunities.

This is a unique opportunity to photograph Yosemite Valley during the stunningly beautiful winter season. Yosemite is one of the most unique natural wonders on our planet and in winter provides jaw dropping opportunities for landscape photography and wildlife! The light is beautiful in the winter and the colors are vibrant making for superb snowy landscape photography opportunities. We schedule this trip in late February to potentially take advantage of Yosemite’s famous “Fire Fall” event but the main purpose of this trip is to photograph the beauty of Yosemite when the entire valley is covered in snow!

This photography excursion features full days of photography from sunrise to sunset as we visit carefully selected locations in the best possible light, taking our time (key for us photographers!) exploring and photographing. We’ll hit the iconic spots such as Half Dome, El Capitan, Bridalveil Falls, Gates of the Valley and Tunnel View as well as many off the beaten path locations most people don’t know about.

This Yosemite photography tour will be based out of our quaint & cozy lodge with prime access to Yosemite Valley. Each evening after our photography session we will return to the lodge for some rest and relaxation and a great meal at their restaurant.

You’ll get ample one on one time with your instructor and improve your photography in one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic locations. Aside from the fun you’ll experience with your fellow photographers you’ll leave this trip with a highly expanded portfolio of excellent images and a wealth of memories. Join us today for the trip of a lifetime to Yosemite National Park in winter!

  • A Great Expereince!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
