Wildlife and Adventure Holidays

The U.S. is rife with fabulous cities and majestic destinations that recount the various stages of history. Visiting these places can be an electrifying experience, filling visitors with a sense of intrigue and excitement. Sometimes, though, it is nice to leave the hustle and bustle behind and regain a sense of tranquility in the great outdoors. Nature and wildlife tours allow travelers to do just this while putting adventure at the forefront of the expedition. Surrounded by mountains, forests, oceans, and wide-open spaces, wildlife vacations in the USA open the door to what lies beyond.

Adventure vacations can take you to any number of beautiful places, including the country's national parks. From the towering sandstone arches of Arches National Park to the plunging depths of Grand Canyon National Park, there is no shortage of wondrous sights to behold. There are stunning hanging gardens and waterfalls in Zion, impressive naturally carved hoodoos in Bryce Canyon, and breathtaking mountain and glacier views in Glacier National Park. Moving further north, Alaska's protected lands, including Kenai Fjords and Denali National Parks, offer a little-seen glimpse of truly remote lands. Your time in these places may include guided tours by bus, boat, or even on foot to be fully immersed in the remarkable scenery. But the views are just part of the equation; the animals that inhabit these parks are just as spectacular.

A wildlife tour in Yellowstone, or one of the other northern parks, brings the chance to see bison, bighorn sheep, and bear. Safaris in Alaska venture to isolated islands or bays for bear viewing amongst some of the world's most concentrated populations or whale watching with snow-capped mountains in the backdrop. Set out into the wilderness for an immersion into the great outdoors.

“The package put together by Vacations By Rail went above and beyond what I could have done on my own. They really considered logistics when booking overnight hotels and rental car pick up/drop off. Overall as our first experience with long distance rail travel, I am very happy we chose Vacations By Rail.

5 stars
“Booking the trip was easy and fast with Ryan's assistance. The trip itself was wonderfully organized, with Joan our Tour Director keeping us well informed throughout the trip. Hotels were great, food was delicious, and Dale our bus driver was wonderful. I'd do this tour again. The step-on guides for Yellowstone and the Black Hills added a lot of great information. The only change I would make would be to take a bedroom instead of a roomette if traveling with two people. The roomette was good during the day but extremely cozy at night.
