Alaska, the USA’s northernmost state, is an immense treasure trove for lovers of nature and the great outdoors. The majesty of the wilderness is spellbinding. You can witness spectacular glaciers, snow-capped mountains and an inspiring, fjord-indented coastline. This pristine, other-worldly landscape is rich in wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, moose and whales.
Canada is the world’s second largest country by total area and, like the USA, is a land of great contrasts. Dominated by the Rocky Mountains in the west and the Arctic in the north, the country is known for its natural beauty and vast, unspoilt wilderness areas. Canada has 39 National Parks spread across the whole country, of which Banff, Jasper and the Pacific Rim are perhaps the most famous. Outdoor activities are available in the parks and elsewhere, with hiking, biking, horse riding, white-water rafting, canoeing and whale watching all popular choices for adventurous travellers.
Whether you go in search of the activities, the wildlife or simply want to immerse yourself in its vast, impressive landscapes, North America has a huge amount to offer adventure seeking travellers.
