Foreign Travel Advice

This 55 day trip affords us a wonderful overview of the western side of North America, as we travel down the spine of the continent from Alaska and the Northern Rockies to the capital of Mexico.

There is so much stunning wilderness and beauty along the way, with bears, salmon, elk, moose and beaver. If you want to see the national parks of North America, then this IS your trip, as we explore the mountains and glaciers of Denali and Kenai, the great parks of the Rockies, such as Jasper and Banff in Canada and, of course, the stunning landscapes of Yellowstone and Grand Tetons, with their wealth of wildlife and biodiversity.

Further south we enter the dry lands and deserts of the wild west, stopping to explore, Canyonlands, Moab, Monument Valley and Zion National Parks and, of course, the Grand Canyon. But it is not just the natural wonders that complete the experience as no visit to the USA would be complete without a few of the cultural highlights, such as a couple of nights in Vegas.
