North America

North America Trips

From Alaska to the Caribbean, your inner adventurer will be delighted with the scope of landscapes and cultures to be discovered

North America is a continent of wild frontiers, from the icy reaches of the Arctic Circle to the swaying palms of the Gulf of Mexico. Here, you’ll encounter a collection cultures shaped by their landscapes, which are as epic and unique as they come.

Our adventures will see you explore the mysterious island of Espiritu Santo, just off the coast of Baja California; immerse yourself in the musical culture of New Orleans; kayak upriver through the Canadian outback, and dive into pristine glacial lakes. By the end of it, you’ll see that North America has just as much to offer as any other exotic destination.
