Great Outdoors

If you are heading to America on holiday, you might want to consider exploring the great outdoors. From national parks to wonders of the world, you’ll be amazed at what you can discover exploring the USA. Discover America’s natural landscape. Here is a selection of the possibilities available to you whether you’re flying, biking, or driving across this magnificent country.

Are you ready to explore the great American outdoors? Then don’t wait, it’s time to book your trip and see a fresh side of this incredible country.

Explore Incredible National Parks

From Yellowstone to Yosemite, America has a number of National Parks well worth visiting. You can spend a night or a week camping in the beautiful outdoors, exploring America’s great wilderness. Arguably one of the most exciting traits of the U.S. National Parks is the incredible wildlife. It is here that you will be able to see amongst others, bald eagles soar and wild bears roam around their natural habitat. They are also home to buffalo, wild wolves and elk.

Each National Park also has its own unique features. If you’re heading to Yellowstone, you’ll be able to visit a real-life dormant super-volcano - one of the largest in the world. Yellowstone spans an incredible 3,500 miles and is home to some incredible hot springs that can be the ideal location for taking a dip.

Visit a Land that Time Forgot

If you want to journey back in time, you should head to Hoh Rainforest. This is one of the most beautiful locations in the Olympic National Park in Washington. The beautiful landscape here isn’t quite like anything anywhere else in this world. The trees, that are hundreds of years old, soar into the sky with their peaks reaching well over 250 feet. It is very much like exploring a lost jungle, and for those who love wildlife, you can see between three and four hundred elk roaming around the area.

See The Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is one of the greatest natural wonders of the world providing an incredible photo opportunity, and today there is a clear walkway so that you can look directly down beneath you into the canyon below. You can also get helicopter tours through the area, and it is even an incredible place to explore on foot. Close by, you can also arrange for river rafting tours to explore the area.

Discover Death Valley

Death Valley National Park is an incredible desert landscape that you can find on the border of California and Nevada. Here you’ll find sand dunes, salt flats and badlands. For a beautiful and incredible view, you need to head to Zabriskie Point. This provides one of the most stunning points to view the sun-beaten badlands. Trekking through Death Valley isn’t easy, and the name is quite apt, but it is an environment that is as unique as it is beautiful.

Go where the Snow Never Melts

There are plenty of places in America where you can enjoy an incredible season of winter weather like Central Oregon. It’s here that you’ll be able to journey through a winter landscape where there are a number of incredible activities to enjoy. Would you like to try riding on a sledge pulled by snow dogs? Perhaps you just want to head to the slopes for a few days’ skiing? All this and much more is available for travellers who are eager to enjoy the outdoors in winter.

Try Glamping

Some people prefer a more luxurious vacation while still exploring the great outdoors. You’ll be pleased to hear there are opportunities to suit everyone when you visit America. Head to Nebraska, and you’ll be able to rent a teepee, or sleep in your own fully covered wagon! Once you explore the possibilities, you’ll discover that there’s an option for every type of traveller at a variety of campsites across North America. Sleep under the stars or get a full cosy cover - the choice is yours!
