Virgin Holidays' view

One of America’s most distinctive cities, San Francisco packs a pretty impressive amount of charm. It won’t be hard to channel your inner photographer - Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the cable cars are yours to capture. Dig deeper though and explore its colourful neighbourhoods each with a distinctive vibe. You’ll find pop-up restaurants, local breweries, cosy coffee shops and hidden gems. You can even wind down Lombard Street on a Segway or take to the air in a seaplane. When you leave the urban life behind, the stunning natural beauty of Yosemite awaits. Jaw-dropping views, massive cliffs and beautiful waterfalls are there for your viewing pleasure. 


Stop 1 - San Francisco:

Some cities are just enduringly endearing – and that’s San Francisco. Its quirks will just make you smile more: the barking sea lions of Pier 39, the impossibly steep hills (which seem to only ever go up), Lombard Street’s crazy crooked twists, the mindboggling dramas behind Alcatraz, the chaos of its cable cars – it’s all entertainingly eccentric.

Day 1: Flight to San Francisco

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

Days 1-5: Enjoy San Francisco

San Francisco might be full of excitement, but there’s plenty of peace too. There are the beaches by Ghirardelli Square. The waterfront park of Crissy Field. The rose gardens of Golden Gate Park. And day trips over the bridge to enjoy the calm of Muir Woods, seasidey Sausalito, and Point Reyes National Seashore. Stay 4 nights at the Sheraton Fishermans Warf. Find out more about this hotel >>

Stop 2 - Yosemite

Dramatically dwarfed by nature’s super-sized skyscrapers, from El Capitan to Half Dome, Yosemite Village’s smattering of lodge-like buildings is more base camp than star attraction (although the Ansel Adams Gallery’s well worth a view). Most of your time will be spent with your neck-craned staring up at mountains and waterfalls, or eyes-strained gazing at infinite views.

Days 5-7: Enjoy Yosemite

As The States demands, this national park does things on a whopping scale. There’s the stature of its monarchs, Half Dome and El Capitan. The thunderous soundtrack of Bridalveil and Yosemite Falls. The vastness of views from Glacier Point, Tunnel View and Olmsted Point. The loftiness of Tuolumne Grove’s sequoias. And its boundless beauty, remoteness and peace. Stay 3 nights at Yosemite Cedar Lodge.Find out more about this hotel >>

Day 8: Fly home

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

If your holiday is going ahead as planned, you can continue to pay for your holiday in Manage my booking, even if travelling in less than 12 weeks.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Payments are being prioritised based on when the request was made, working in order from March 2020 onwards. We will always try to process refunds at the earliest opportunity, for requests before August our maximum timeframe is 120 days. As we are steadily reducing the maximum processing time for each new request, for refund requests made in August, we expect the maximum processing time to be 80 days, from the date the refund is requested. For those requesting a refund in September, we expect it to be processed within a maximum of 60 days, and then reduce to 30 days for refunds requested in October, before returning to normal levels.

We'll be in touch soon

To finalise the amendment, one of our customer advisors will phone you. We need to work through amend requests in departure date order so we can prioritise those with the most imminent travel plans, so you may have a longer wait than usual until we’re able to ring you back. We will help everyone that wants to move their holiday.

I returned early from holiday and have further questions?

You can contact our team by emailing to discuss options on unused portions of your holiday. If you need to contact our team about amending an existing holiday or requesting a refund please log in to manage my booking.
