Visit North America
You’re in for a veritable travel feast when you arrive in North America - one of the most vast and diverse environments on the planet. Travel across the United States and Canada, and you’ll enjoy spectacular cities, traditional towns, rain-starved deserts and wild mountain regions. Of course you can’t forget the beautiful expanses of coastline that border both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. A visit to North America always reveals something new and extraordinary, no matter how many earlier trips you’ve made.
If the idea of witnessing “calving” glaciers (when a groaning glacier drops giant blocks of ice into the sea) and truly wild experiences top your travel wish list, Alaska is the place to visit. America’s last great frontier, this outrageously beautiful glacial wilderness is twice the size of Texas and has a population of just 700,000.
Stake out Alaska’s formidable fishermen - ravenous Brown Bears, and marvel as they devour salmon flesh and roe on lush riverbanks. This comes with a warning though: witnessing the annual feasting of bears standing over 10 feet tall and weighing over 700kg can be one of the most adrenaline-fuelled experiences of your life!

And for some serious chilling, head to the North Shore of Oahu where the streets are lined with mango trees.
