Heli-skiing in the Rockies, sea kayaking with orcas off the coast of British Columbia, the extraordinary scenery of the Grand Canyon, beautiful national parks like Yosemite, and big, brash cities such as Las Vegas and New York - these are just a selection of what our North American destinations have to offer.

Will, Hero and Ysobel are here to help give you the inside track.

Our guide to holidays in North America

Original Travel visits and revisits our favourite parts of North America on a regular basis, and any in-depth exploration of this vast continent makes the fact that so few Americans have passports that little bit more comprehensible. Frankly, with all this on your doorstep, why would you bother?

Kauai Helicopter Tour

Kauai Helicopter Tour

Hawaii

Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands showing off with its immense natural wonders. A helicopter tour is probably the best way to capture the island’s entire natural scenery, lush mountains, beautiful gardens and exotic beaches, but most of all, to fully experience the ‘Garden Isle’s’ hidden wilderness, as over 70% of the Island is inaccessible by land.

The National Parks

The National Parks

The American West

When a country is the size of a continent you’d expect it to have a national park or two, but a visitor to the States could spend every day of the year in a different park and still need another month or two to complete the set. In fact, the US National Park Service protects a total of 84 million acres across every state in the Union. Now that’s impressive.
