North America Holiday Extensions

The continent of North America can seem overwhelming in its vastness and diversity. From the bustling cityscapes of the East Coast and the rugged wilderness of the Utah badlands, to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the verdant landscapes of the Canadian wilderness, nowhere on Earth is there such variety in environments. Experience the true highlights of North America with a Great Rail Journeys extension and enjoy a few more days, in addition to your tour, to soak up the wondrous culture available in this vast landmass.

Join us to explore the highlights of the 'Big Apple' with our 'Simply New York' extension, marvelling at Lady Liberty herself. Or head to the casinos of Las Vegas and experience a once-in-a-lifetime evening on the fabled Strip.

Those seeking more natural climes could head to the unique lake-lodges of our 'Grizzly Bear Adventure' and enjoy an unforgettable experience searching for some of Canada's unique wildlife.
