The outstanding nature found in North America is unrivaled, and not too far from home. Witness the uniquely diverse tidal environment at the Bay of Fundy, or admire the unmatched scenery found between the northernmost tip of Newfoundland and the most easterly point in North America. Explore the breathtaking landscapes of the American Southwest, or seek out an array of local wildlife that call Alaska home. Whichever journey you embark on, North America's impressive environment will not disappoint.
Bay of Fundy & Hopewell Rocks
For thousands of years, the Bay of Fundy's extremely high tides have been slowly forming towering sculptures in Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick. Seventeen eroded flowerpot formations cover this unique area, and no Canadian adventure is complete without experiencing these must-see natural wonders and discovering the world's highest tides.
Denali National Park
Alaskan Wildlife
Alaska is home to an abundance of strange and wonderful wild animals. Although a variety of wildlife can be found throughout the state, a large population of spectacular animals can be found in Denali National Park. While at the park, keep an eye out for Alaska's big 5: wolves, moose, grizzly bears, Dall sheep, and caribou. Fun fact: the moose is Alaska's official state animal!
Utah National Park
Utah's Mighty 5
The American Southwest is one of the most geographically diverse regions within the continental U.S. and home to some of the nation’s most spectacular national parks, including Utah's Mighty 5: Arches, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, and Zion. Lace up your shoes, grab your camera, and get ready to explore the rugged landscapes and raw natural beauty of these gems.
Atlantic Puffins
Canadian Wildlife
Whales, bears, and seabirds galore: there is no shortage of spectacular wildlife in Canada. Admire the orange-footed puffins scurrying across cliffs before plunging head-first into the sea. Travel by sea alongside breaching humpback whales and aerobatic dolphins. Keep a keen eye out for bald eagles nesting in towering trees. No wonder Canada is an incredibly popular destination among travelers!
