Today we enjoy a leisurely morning at camp before our first major hike in the wild. We will hike about 5 miles along the coast into the Sinkyone Wilderness. The area takes its name from the native Sinkyone tribe of the area of California. The Sinkyone Wilderness was a fertile hunting ground for Native Americans, providing nearly constant access to fresh fish and meat from the ocean. Make sure to bring a camera for the stunning sunsets in the evening! Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 5
Northern Lost Coast

Today we will explore the northern part of California’s Lost Coast with a 6-mile hike on the King Range Wilderness trail. Completely different from the southern stretch, we’ll find black sand beaches and cliffside coves. We’ll cool off with a swim in the Pacific Ocean this afternoon before heading back to camp for a relaxing last night in this wild and beautiful part of California. Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 6
Highway 1 Mini Roadtrip

Pack up camp and hit the famous Highway 1 as you drive south to Bodega Bay. Our mini roadtrip brings us through quirky villages, historic settlements, charming lighthouses, and picturesque beaches. This 4-hour drive will include several memorable stops, with plenty of great coffee and pastry stops along the route. Our camp at Bodega Bay will be overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Fall asleep to the calming sounds of waves crashing on the shore while lying in our tents. Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 7
Bodega Bay

Positioned along the annual gray whale migration route, Bodega Bay is a prime spot to spot these beauties off the coast. You’ll have the option to join a whale watching tour in the morning, otherwise you can grab your towel and relax or swim at one of the beaches nearby camp. In the afternoon, you can keep napping in the sun or hit the water on an included kayak tour. For dinner, chow down on group BBQ at our campsite. Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 8
Bodega Bay

Today is all about choosing your own adventure! If you haven’t joined a whale watching tour or a kayak tour yet, now is the time. There is also an option to enjoy a great hike along the Russian River with the guide. If you’re looking for a more luxurious day, choose to visit a spa in nearby Freestone. Known for its organic facials, rejuvenating massages, and beautiful Zen‐inspired meditation gardens, this is a great opportunity for some rest and relaxation. The group will reconvene at night for a brewery tour along the Russian River! Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 9
Point Reyes National Seashore

Our final stop on the tour is at Point Reyes National Seashore, which is only a short drive from Bodega Bay. Hike to beautiful Alamere Falls, a rare tidefall with a waterfall flowing directly into the ocean. We will setup our camp for the last time before a memorable farewell dinner and drinks around the campfire. Roast your final s’mores over the fire and reminisce about all the wonderful memories we’ve created. Meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Day 10
Return to San Francisco

This morning we start the scenic drive through Cypress Tree Tunnel. Enjoy one final hike from Sea Lion Cove to Chimney Rock, where we might even spot some Elephant Seals at the overlook. Drive approximately 2 hours back to San Francisco before departing back home in the late afternoon. Meals: breakfast

Day 11
Optional: San Francisco Post-Program Extension

Spend three more days in San Francisco at the end of your Lost Coast camping trip to really get to know this incredible destination. If you are here for the July 4th celebration, your local guide will show you how to celebrate in Dolores Park in the Mission District. If you are on the July SoFe trip, you will join an included Mission District tour to taste the amazing food this Latin community has to offer.
