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.

“It was a wonderful trip, with the tour guide Sally Bell and bus driver Alex Hess being the best part. . All the museums, animals, and scenery were fantastic. The raft trip on the Snake River and the jeep ride through Custer State Park were the best parts of the trip. The weakest part of the tour was the California Zephyr train. The observation deck was great and the food was good, but the roomette was too small, the train too jerky, and the whole train showing that it was in need of a good cleaning. But we loved the trip and thought it was an awesome itinerary. Thank you.

“The train trip from Chicago to Whitefish, MT was a difficult ride. Staying in the coach seats was really uncomfortable. I believe that there was a defect in the seat I was in; a bent hard wire on the right side was irritating my leg. My husband had a VERY difficult time sleeping, or getting any rest in those seats. I would have considered the bedroom or the other option, but I believed the prices to be OUTRAGEOUS! In December, I was quoted a price over $1K for ONE NIGHT! In May, the price had increased to OVER THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!! Had we flown to Whitefish, or somewhere close by, I think the overall trip would have been much better. I realize that your name is VACATIONS BY RAIL, however, much of the time on the train was during darkness, so not much scenery was available.

“Fabulous itinerary with plenty of leisure time to do what we wanted. Everything went smoothly and we received a prompt refund when one excursion was cancelled due to weather. This was our second trip with Vacations By Rail and very pleased; will book with them again.

“Disappointed in the Westmark Hotels in Anchorage and Fairbanks. They were run down. Loved the ship and train ride! Our room at Mt McKinley Chalet was adequate but the toilet was loose and the shower curtain wasn’t Long enough so it flooded the floor. These rooms also need updated. Overall, the trip was amazing but for the money, I thought our land accommodations were sub par.
