 Important Notes
  • The actual Firefall is not guaranteed as it is weather dependent.
  • There are no private or secluded viewpoints of the falls and guests should expect a crowd.
  • Weather is expected to be chilly and guests should expect to be standing for up to 1-2.5 hours once you arrive at the viewpoint. REI will provide collapsible chairs.
  • REI will be providing hand warmers, hot beverages, and soup but all guests need to make sure they’re dressed for the cold. Weather appropriate layered clothing – Baselayers, an insulating mid-layer, and a shell are the best way to stay warm. A fleece or ‘puffy’ jacket, a fleece hat, and gloves are highly recommended.
  • Once at the viewing point, your guide, Matt, will also share his best photography tips & tricks. Matt is a professional photographer who guides trips year-round in Yosemite

  • Roundtrip transportation from AutoCamp Yosemite
  • A full day of programming in the park with a professional REI guide and photographer
