Take a tour of North and Central America with us

Innovative, inspirational and awe-inspiring

USA

Dynamic and dazzling, the ever-evolving USA has always marched ahead of the rest of the world. As a vacation destination, it's hard to imagine anyone to which it wouldn’t appeal. If you're looking for shopping and excitement, there's New York. And for beautiful beaches and wildlife, try Florida or California. You can even immerse yourself in jazz and a supremely chilled vibe in New Orleans.

Join us and you'll visit pretty seaside towns as well as vibrant cities, and hear talks from wildlife experts as you explore national parks. And rather than hamburgers, you'll taste and even learn to make local specialties. In idyllic Hawaii, the USA’s only island state, you can go scuba diving, enjoy music and dancing or just relax on the beautiful beaches.

Canada

The world’s second largest country is a land of stunning natural phenomena, from the thundering cascade of Niagara Falls to the snow-capped Rocky Mountains.

French-speaking Montreal is a haven for food, art and culture lovers. While beachside Vancouver, filled with lakes, rivers and green spaces, is a naturally beautiful city in the shadow of the mountains. In gorgeous, flower-filled Victoria, we’ll introduce you to the owners of a vineyard who’ll treat you to a homecooked meal washed down with homegrown wine.

Central America

In relaxing Panama, beyond its world-famous man-made canal, lies dizzying rainforest – where turtles, iguanas, possums and pumas vie for your attention.

And if you really want to experience some of the world’s most exotic wildlife, Costa Rica is home to half a million species. Join us in this prime ecotourism destination, where you can fly through the rainforest on a zip wire one minute, and meet farmers and chocolatiers the next. 

Mexico’s natural landscape is shaped by ancient civilizations and is a land of fascinating Mayan ruins, and it is also home to a super-ravine four times larger than the Grand Canyon. You’ll find the Mexico’s exuberant people a privilege to meet - whether you learn about natural remedies from a medicine woman, or help a restaurant owner to make traditional Mayan dishes.
