North America

North America, the third-largest continent on Earth, is a land of remarkable diversity, incredible landscapes and boundless opportunities for adventure.

In Canada, adventure seekers can explore pristine national parks like Banff and Jasper, with activities ranging from hiking and kayaking to wildlife encounters with grizzly bears and orcas. The United States boasts diverse adventures, from hiking the Grand Canyon's epic trails and exploring Death Valley to discovering California's most impressive national parks. Whether it's the adrenaline rush of outdoor sports, the exploration of diverse ecosystems, or the immersion in vibrant cultures, North America is a continent brimming with adventures waiting to be discovered.

Highlight of North America

The Grand Canyon stands as an unparalleled highlight of North America, captivating visitors with its awe-inspiring grandeur and profound geological significance. Carved over millions of years by the relentless force of the Colorado River, this colossal chasm reveals an astonishing tapestry of Earth's history. Its immense scale, plunging depths, and intricate rock formations create an almost otherworldly landscape that challenges the limits of human comprehension.

What to do in North America

Walk in the Rocky Mountains

To make the most of this dramatic region, we have devised a walking holiday that explores a variety of trails and areas that showcase the natural wonders on offer.
