America's National Parks
Discover America's iconic National Parks with Travelsphere
We began escorting holidaymakers to North America in the late 1970s - that’s nearly 40 years ago. The spectacular scenery of America’s national parks will stop you in your tracks and take your breath away. Dubbed North America’s ‘best idea’ and with 2016 the centenary of the National Park Service, why not join the celebrations and put our top 5 national parks on your must-see list this year.
The world’s first national park is home to more than 290 waterfalls, 10,000 thermal features and 300 geysers including ‘Old Faithful’, which erupts up to 20 times a day.
2. Grand Canyon
We’ve all seen photographs of this famous site but nothing prepares you for its sheer size and the spectacular views that can be seen as you stand on the South Rim.
Best known for its waterfalls, this great valley is also home to giant sequoia trees, a species which can live for more than 3,000 years.
4. Zion National Park
As you follow in the footsteps of ancient native people and pioneering adventurers cast your gaze upwards at massive sandstone walls rimmed with craggy peaks and hanging valleys.
Explore the lush scenery of the largest sub-tropical wilderness in the United States and look for thrilling wildlife from alligators to pelicans.
