The Best Activity Holidays in America

Do you like to make the most of your holiday and try something new every day? Then an activity holiday in America could be for you. When visiting such a diverse country as the USA, the options are endless for adventure holidays.

So, we’ve picked out our three favorites that we think any active holiday-goer will love.

  1. Experience the Rocky Mountains

Head to the most prominent mountain range in North America – the Rockies. As well as some impressive views in the surrounding national parks, you can relax in Miette Hot Springs, spend a night in the cowboy town of Jackson or drive along the famous Icefields Parkway.

Those who enjoy extreme sports can head to the adventure capital of Whistler for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and bungee jumping. Or, you could spend a day at the Whistler Olympic Park, which was built for the 2010 Winter Games. Take their tour, try your hand at some of their activities or watch world-class athletes as they train. Whistler is a haven for an activity holiday.

  1. Go Exploring the West

Live the Western Dream with a trip to the Wild West. This opportunity is perfect for an adventurous spirit and you can either book a pre-planned tour of the best of Western America or compose your own itinerary. There’s so much that you could fit into your trip, including:

  • Salt Lake City
  • Walking trails at Yosemite, Zion, Bryce Canyon and Grand Teton national parks
  • Monument Valley
  • Old Faithful geyser at Yellowstone
  • Watching the sunset at Grand Canyon
  • Visiting Death Valley

Whether you want to catch a glimpse of a wolf, or marvel at the natural beauty of the national parks, there’s plenty to do when you plan a trip in America’s magnificent West.

  1. Embark on an Alaskan Adventure

Any adventurous traveler who prefers the winter chill to the heat of the summer should plan a visit to Alaska. It’s great for those who love trying out new experiences with breath-taking scenery – you could go whale spotting or try your hand at dog sledding in this one-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska.

Stay at a wilderness camp or in a rustic cabin in the Alaska Range to spend your holiday exploring the beauty of Kenai Fjords and Wrangell-St Elias National Parks. What better holiday can you imagine than spotting wildlife in their natural habitat, hiking in stunning landscapes and the opportunity to try sea kayaking?

If you’re looking for an activity holiday, then the USA is the destination for you. With so much to do and so much to see in this rich and diverse country, you’re sure to continue going back for your next adventure holiday time and time again.
