USA Adventure Holidays
Holidays to the USA with Exodus are all about experiencing the great outdoors. We take you into the heart of some of the country’s justly famous national parks to fully immerse yourself in the remarkable scenery. Just about everything in the USA is big and its wonderful national parks are no exception so it’s easy to get away from the crowds.
California’s Yosemite National Park is blessed with vast areas of forest punctuated with granite outcrops – home to a healthy population of black bear. Further east, the somewhat drier state of Arizona has more barren, but no less striking, scenery. The Grand Canyon is jaw-droppingly huge and stretches off into the distance both long ways and downwards. Its steep walls are made of some of the oldest exposed rock on the planet making it a draw for geologists from all over the world. Bryce and Zion National Parks also feature stunning rock formations, best viewed as the sun sets. Then there is Monument Valley with its iconic red sandstone mesas which instantly conjure up images of cowboys and Indians fighting in old western films.
The north of the USA boasts one of the greatest wilderness areas in the world: Alaska. The sheer size of Alaska is quite daunting; its total area is over a million square kilometres, yet there are only about 500,000 permanent residents. Alaska contains over 5,000 glaciers, including one the size of Switzerland, and vast areas of uninhabited wilderness. It is by far the largest state of the USA, and includes vast empty tundra plains, mountains, glaciers, rivers and forests; all this combined with its fascinating history makes Alaska an ideal adventure travel destination.
