Parks And Nature

We believe travel to our planet’s wild places is like medicine for the soul. If you’ve stood on the lip of the Grand Canyon and felt goose bumps crawl up your arms, or drifted over Alaska’s mammoth glaciers and caught your heart in your throat, you’ll know what we mean.

What to Expect:

Wildlife Viewing

There is something in us that longs to connect in some way with the other living things we share our planet with. If you’re one of those people, then have we got the trip for you. Though they may not be as tied to wildlife as Africa in traveler’s minds, the American West, California and Alaska all offer countless opportunities to observe and learn about wildlife during your vacation.

The wildlife of the American West is deeply woven into the history and culture of the region. It’s no wonder that the bison is the National Mammal of the US – its presence in herds as far as the eye could see was at the center of life and culture for numerous Great Plains tribes and it remains an enduring symbol of the West. Its fellow inhabitants of the region – elk, moose, wolf, wild mustangs, grizzly and black bears and the Golden Eagle, the National Bird – also conjure up images and emotions of the great wild places of America. California’s abundance of wildlife includes countless marine animals, including humpback whales, sea lions and dolphins. And Alaska’s wildlife is one of its main draws. Polar bears, brown bears, black bears, caribou, moose, mountain goats, wolf, and Dall sheep rule on land, while the marine attractions extend beyond the salmon – which offer a spectacular show of course – to humpback whales, orca, beluga whales, and bowhead whales, as well as seals and sea lions.

Native American Arts & Culture

Long before America came into being, the Native Americans and Native Alaskans were the stewards of the rocks and rivers, the canyons and cliffs, the wildlife and plant life. They respected and revered the wondrous beauty and natural bounty of the American West, California and Alaska. Yellowstone, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Glacier National Park and Olympic National Park – these places were sacred to the Native peoples of America. And their history and stories are forever linked. With the help of our expert guides, you learn more about these fascinating people and their cultures.

Children and adults alike thrill to the opportunity to climb through Ancestral Pueblo or Anasazi cliff dwellings, using the same hand and footholds that the residents used more than 500 years ago to return home. Pictographs – drawings or paintings made on rocks – and petroglyphs – images carved into the rock – offer a visual connection to the events and lives of Native Americans long ago. Or get a glimpse into how these traditions are honored today when you get face-to-face with storytellers or artisans.

Family & Multi-Generational Travel

What’s the greatest gift you can think of to give your children and loved ones? We’re willing to bet a thriving planet teeming with life and natural beauty, joyous memories, and unhurried time together may be high on your list. We agree. This is why we’ve made this the foundation of our journeys.

The secret to a successful family vacation is to engage the children. And where better to do that than in America’s playgrounds in the West, California and Alaska? Visiting the National Parks and other wild spaces in the western US is not only fun but it can add another level of meaningfulness to multi-generational trips as grandparents and parents delight to see their children and grandchildren discover the places they remember from childhood. California is an ideal family destination, with the perfect mix of natural beauty, cultural and historic attractions, and simple pleasures like the beach and amusement parks. And Alaska’s wildlife and wide range of activities, from hiking, to river rafting to dog sledding, are made to order for active family and multi-generational crews.

Our custom vacations take into account each family member’s interests, activity levels, and personality to create an unforgettable experience for everyone. Our expertise comes from creating hundreds of family trips, including our own! Ask around: we know how to put smiles on faces—from the littlest travelers to grandparents, and everyone in-between.
