The United States of America (USA) has something for everyone. Famous for iconic cities, epic landscapes, pop culture icons, politics and well known history – much immortalised through their leading movie industry.

With 50 states stretching from the glacial wonder of Alaska in the Arctic Circle to the volcanic shores of tropical Hawaii to luminous cityscapes of New York and San Francisco to the famous walks in Hollywood to the ski slopes of Aspen Colorado to the creole lifestyle in the New Orleans and the ancient landscapes of Arizona and the Grand Canyon. America is about living every moment to the full and presents thrilling travelling experiences.


Canada

One of the world’s most popular destinations, Canada is a blend of several cultures with the French towns of Montreal and Quebec in the east to the vibrant west Canadian city of Vancouver, in between lies the spectacular Canadian Rocky Mountains, home to the world class ski resorts, the Calgary Stampede, and one of the world’s most famous rail journeys. 


Alaska

Untouched wilderness, you will marvel at the snow-capped peaks and glaciers. This is wild country where mother nature rules. You can spot bears in the wild and see whales, seals and even polar bears. Home to the Eskimo culture and one of the world’s last frontiers. There is so much discover about Alaska by cruise ship, plane and overland.
