Activities in North America

One of the benefits of being so immense in size with such variations in landscape is that North America offers a whole host of possibilities of what to do. If it's the water that draws you in, join the surf culture of the West Coast of the USA, go diving in the Molokini Crater in Hawaii or snorkel with whales in the Arctic temperatures of Hudson Bay in Canada. If the mountains are what appeals, head to the Canadian Rockies or British Columbia for a spot of hiking or skiing. Or if relaxing with a glass of wine (or two) is more up your street, try wine tasting in Santa Barbara or British Columbia.

Whatever your preference, we've got something for you with our selection of activities to embark on in North America.
