Holidays to the Americas
From the gates of the Arctic all the way to Tierra del Fuego...
This 'New World' contains amazing contrasts: its ancient civilizations lie alongside great modern metropolises, whilst arid deserts, steamy jungles, soaring mountains, great forests and arctic tundra all provide some of the most diverse and rich animal habitats on the planet. In high profile destinations like the Galapagos, Denali National Park, Yosemite and the Inca Trail there are strict rules, which we abide by; in other areas such as Costa Rica, and the jungles of Peru we actively seek out lodges that run on eco-friendly lines and employ local people. We also feature a range of Cuba holidays designed to show you Cuba away from the resorts.What the experts say about our trips to the Americas
'Standing at sunset on Roraima's summit, with a view that stretched for nearly 200 miles (322km), it wasn't hard to see why. Just a few feet away, the cliff walls dropped 2,000 feet (610m) beneath us. No lips, no ledges. Straight down. Above us, a full moon shone out of a clear blue sky as a rolling bank of cloud like a giant tongue licked its way through the chasm between Roraima and its neighbour, Kukenan. And as the setting sun performed miracles in the sky, it was easy to imagine a time when Roraima, indeed the world itself, was young.'
