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.

Alaska the Greatland
15/Oct
Clara
5 stars
“The trip was excellent and our tour guide, Beth Mohan, and bus driver, Joe Hall, were fantastic. When the weather canceled our tram ride up the mountain, Beth had an alternative at sea Aquarium which was lovely. Especially loved watching the puffins. Wish the rail company had told us the bus was going everywhere with us with our luggage as the train restrictions on size made it difficult and unable to pack some necessities like a pillow. I thought the train would be my favorite but the tour boat out into the sound was even more impressive getting up close to the glaciers and seeing other animals. Would definitely reommend this trip to others.

“My overnight train from Seattle to Whitefish was fun with beautiful scenery as we left Seattle. Bus tours with driver Glen and tourguide Bill were fun, informative and safe! The stops at the national park treasures were timely with planned tours and personal time to walk the rim trails and explore the mudpots and geysers. The only negative was the trip to Lake Powell - hot with slow boat ride - it was not my treasure!

“In general it was wonderful. The train was comfortable and the scenery amazing. Hotels were all just fine. It was very disappointing that we had no access to the dining car on the train. If we had been told of that in advance we had missed it. We would not do another train trip of any length without that availability.

“Our issues was the Hilton in Anchorage has no transportation to and from the airport or rail station. It was raining and the two blocks with 2 sets of stairs with two older ladies trying to take our luggage down the stairs. Other complaint is the Pukes transportation was lacking for the amount they f passengers they had to pick up. They had multiple trips to get everyone. The counter wasn’t prepared either or happy to see us. Also having no activity with no transportation in Fairbanks. Maybe you should either shorten the trip or plan another event for then. Other than that we were quite happy.
