Virgin Holidays' view

A bevy of sights, sounds and tastes, San Francisco has a vibe like no other. One of the world’s greatest cities, the hardest part may be deciding what to do first. Maybe start in Union Square or with a ride on a cable car to Fisherman’s Wharf? A chance to take that instagram selfie with the Golden Gate Bridge, then maybe treat yourself to a tasty clam chowder with sourdough? Foodies may sniff out local treats at the Ferry Building, or head to Little Italy or Chinatown. The choices are endless and you may be glad of a change of pace when you arrive in Mammoth. A chance to reconnect with nature as you stroll through forests, admire the wildflowers in the meadows and enjoy the great outdoors. The fresh mountain air is known for working up an appetite - dining al fresco on a sunny patio might just hit the spot. 

Itinerary

Stop 1 - San Francisco:

Like they’ve curated all the best bits of any city – and thrown in a whole bunch of exciting extras – San Francisco does everything for everyone. Beaches? It’s got them. Exciting architecture? Check out the skyline from Alamo Square. Shopping? Buy high-end in Union Square or hippy chic in Haight-Ashbury. Landmarks? Er … Golden Gate Bridge. It’s got it all.

Find out about San Francisco

Day 1: Flight to San Francisco

Fly daily from London Heathrow to San Francisco with Virgin Atlantic.

Days 1-4: Enjoy San Francisco

Despite its hills, bike is king here – and there’s nothing quite like cycling over Golden Gate Bridge, or curving your way down Lombard Street, or peddling your way past Pier 39 as you bike the Embarcadero. Still not convinced? There’s always cable cars instead, whipping you from Union Square towards Fisherman’s Wharf in no time. 

Stop 2 - Mammoth Mountain

Its name doesn’t lie – and it’s not just the mountain that’s mammoth here; the attractions come in gargantuan portions too. Its southern California address means Mammoth Mountain gets plenty of sunshine, but the winter sports come as thick and fast as the snow, with skiing (downhill and cross-country), snowboarding, snowmobiling, and other exhilarating action.

Days 4-11: Enjoy Mammoth Mountain

This may be California’s highest ski resort, but you can leave the skis behind and ride snow tubes down the slopes at Woolly’s Tube Park. Or swap the chairlifts for a gondola, scaling to the peak (11,000 foot high) for views just as thrilling as the snow sports. Or travel in luxury by snowcat, going off-piste on a scenic journey. 

Day 11: Fly home

Fly home overnight from San Francisco to Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic.
