Because this country really has it all and with our bespoke holiday packages we can combine a once in a lifetime break with everything you want packed in to your timeframe for a true taste of this vast but warm hearted country.
Itinerary idea– choose a 12 night cruise from Quebec City to New York experiencing Prince Edward Island and Halifax.
Often referred to as ‘The Wilderness State’ Alaska is only one of two U.S. states not bordered by another state and quite rightly boasts some truly exceptional sights to see. One of which is the famous Northern Lights, otherwise known as the Aurora borealis, which can be best seen in Winter but still perfectly possible at the end of summer in early September. This incredible country which is six times larger than the UK also boasts active volcanoes, abundant rainforests, a secluded Arctic frontier and an amazing 100,000+ glaciers! However much of the landscape is well connected by road and also by the superb Alaskan Railroad. To experience true Alaska wilds we can offer you many guided trips and tours to take you to a variety of remote (and not so remote) places, where you can encourage almost any outdoor pursuit, from kayaking and river rafting, to Salmon fly fishing and Kodiak bear watching.
Itinerary idea– choose a 13 day inland Alaska tour with train ride from Fairbanks to Denali for an awe-inspiring experience of the lands natural wonders.
