A holiday to North America offers a land of diversity and the home of a vast wilderness of untamed forest, desert, tundra, volcanoes and lakes. It provides travellers with a range of experiences, from whale watching in Baja California to the wild frontier of Alaska.
In the far north lies Alaska. Separated from the rest of the United States by Canada, it is an outdoor world, a wild frontier, and a land of many faces. Often so vast and roadless that many areas still remain inaccessible, an Alaskan cruise aboard a small ship with the freedom of a flexible itinerary and a shallow draft to access the quieter backwaters is the perfect way to unlock this little visited area and get up close to its wildlife.
Canada is an outdoor playground with gentle hikes to extreme winter sports in UNESCO National Parks. Towering glaciers, emerald lakes, thick forests and cosmopolitan cities with luxury camping, award winning restaurants and incredible wildlife experiences is just the beginning of what Canada can offer. The Canadian Arctic also hosts some incredible voyages and wildlife encounters including Whale watching, Polar Bear observation and swimming with Belugas.
Lying just south of California, a narrow stiletto-like peninsula separated from mainland Mexico by the Sea of Cortez, Baja is an inexhaustibly rich region with huge appeal. Its coastal waters harbour one of the richest marine environments on the planet, while over 3,000 plant species flourish in its pristine desert landscape.
