It is amazing cities like New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago and San Francisco that makes North America one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, but there is much more to the country than this. The USA is an incredibly vast, varied, rugged and beautiful country with some of the most breathtaking natural surroundings on the entire planet. Here you will find sprawling desert, thick woodland, imposing mountain ranges, epic lakes, swampland and much more.

As incredible as the major cities are and should be experienced by everybody, you may find that it is in between these destinations where you truly uncover North America. Off the beaten path you will discover the astonishing natural beauty and the heart of the country. Due to the sheer size of the land, there is an incredible amount to see and do away from the cities and this makes the USA a fantastic destination for an adventure holiday.
There are endless options for adventure seekers and nature lovers, but your trip could involve horseback riding in the real Wild West, white-water rafting in Colorado, hiking through the Rockies, glacier trekking in Alaska or taking a helicopter ride down the Grand Canyon.
