REI and AutoCamp partner in Yosemite National Park
The great outdoors and luxury design come together against the background of a national park thanks to a new immersive experience partnership between REI Co-op, the specialty outdoor retailer and active travel provider, and AutoCamp, the outdoor hotel brand specializing in modern Airstream suites and luxurious tents.
REI’s new Yosemite day tours expand on the co-op’s popular multiway trips in the park, allowing guests to enjoy six fully guided day tours to experience the wonder of one of the nation’s most epic natural places. Guests staying at AutoCamp’s newly opened high-end outdoor lodging property can arrange their REI-led hikes with optional transportation to and from the comfort of their custom Airstream or luxury canvas tent.
AutoCamp Yosemite is roughly a three-hour drive from San Francisco and 45 minutes from the central valley of Yosemite National Park. The property is the brand’s third and largest location to date, with fully outfitted, custom-designed Airstream suites, luxurious canvas tents, and beautiful accessible suites that seamlessly blend thoughtful design with the great outdoors. Lodging rates start at $200 per night.
A two-story clubhouse stands as the center of AutoCamp Yosemite, with a meeting space, a fully stocked shop, luxury bathrooms, showers, pond and swimming pool. The property also features REI’s Co-op Cycles DRT 1.1 bikes that are available for AutoCamp guests as a complimentary amenity.
Appropriate for beginning and moderate hiking enthusiasts, REI’s day tours last between four and seven hours and are led by professional local guides who are incredibly knowledgeable about the park’s history, flora and fauna. Each experience includes a gourmet lunch, snacks, water, and use of a daypack and trekking poles. The day tours are:
Day tour prices start at $155 per person. AutoCamp guests can arrange private tours and transportation or catch a ride on Yosemite’s public transit to the meeting location.
