America's National Parks

Our favourite National Parks
1. Zion - 2. Acadia - 3. Denali - 4. Haleakala - 5. Shenandoah

America's National Parks contain some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes and many of the country's most iconic. In these vast areas, some as big as European countries, you'll find fantastic wildlife as well as every possible terrain imaginable, plus some that are quite simply beyond imagination. Pull up to a National Park kiosk and you know you are in for something special, and with nearly 60 parks to choose from, your only difficulty will be deciding where to venture first.

Looking for a Wild West landscape straight out of The Lone Ranger or Thelma and Louise? Try the famous National Parks of the Colorado Plateau. Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capital Reef and Zion; all boast their own unique vistas, characterised by imposing rock formations, carved over millions of years by the elements. Monument Valley, whilst not a National Park is also high on most people’s bucket list and instantly recognisable from the silver screen.

Want to get closer to nature? How about canoeing through the mangrove swamps of the Everglades National Park, looking for crocodiles and manatees? Or taking a bat tour at Carlsbad Caverns? Or driving through Yosemite, keeping an eye out for bears? The options are endless. But the best way to experience the National Parks is often on foot, with some stunning hiking trails from 20 minutes to two days just waiting to be walked.

But it’s not all about action packed days on National Park holidays. Its about learning too. Discover the fascinating cliff dwellings of the Ancestral Puebloans in Mesa Verde National Park. Find out about the awe-inspiring power of volcanoes at Yellowstone, the USA’s oldest National Park which contains half the world’s geothermal features. Or see two billion years of geological history exposed in the Grand Canyon. Wherever you choose to go, get ready to be inspired.



Why not explore our favourite National Park destinations

Zion National Park, Utah

Zion National Park

Zion National Park is located in southern Utah and is famous for its fantastic rock formations and towering sandstone cliffs. The dramatic and inspiring landscape attracts visitors for hiking, climbing and canyoning through the maze of deep narrow sandstone canyons hemmed in by the tall canyon walls. A highlight is the Zion Narrows, a spectacular gorge carved out by the Virgin River running through the park, a place where the walls rise 2,000 – 3,000 ft. above the canyon floor.

As visitors gaze up at the steep canyon walls in the park they will notice the variety of life growing on the steep cliffs. Nicknamed the ‘hanging gardens of Zion’ these masses of ferns, mosses and wildflowers seem to thrive in this precarious environment and take their sustenance from the water and minerals seeping through the sandstone from the mesas above. There’s also a great variety of wildlife to be spotted in the park despite the arid climate, and this includes many birds, jack rabbits, porcupines and coyotes.

Much of Zion National Park is accessible by car and the 6 mile Zion Canyon Scenic Drive is not to be missed. Zion Canyon itself can only be visited by the free shuttle which operates from late March to October. This starts at the Zion Visitor Center where there are also interesting exhibits to be seen and plenty of background information available.

Acadia National Park, Maine

Acadia National Park

Located about six hours drive north of Boston on the east coast of Maine near the town of Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park comprises of more than 47,000 acres of land and attracts huge numbers of visitors year round to its rolling green hills and beautiful coastline scenery. With a relatively mild marine climate, the park often sees a variety of weather including foggy days, so visitors should come prepared with the right clothing and footwear. Whatever the weather, hikers are rewarded with stunning views, some over the Atlantic ocean and especially from the park’s Mount Desert Island and the highest point of the park at 466 metre high Cadillac Mountain.

Other ways to explore the park include the free Island Explorer bus which takes visitors through the park, stopping at points of interest on its route. Another great way to see the sights is to hire a bike and cycle some of the many dedicated carriage roads which crisscross the park. Along the way you’ll have a good chance of spotting some of the many bird species in the park, such as bald eagles, peregrine falcons or woodpeckers to name just a few.

Denali National Park, Alaska

Denali National Park

Denali is one of the most accessible of Alaska’s National Parks so it’s not surprising that it’s also the most visited. The park, named for its highest peak (also the highest in North America), is made up of a vast, unspoiled six million acre wilderness of glacial rivers, massive peaks and tundra. Wildlife regularly spotted here roaming freely includes grizzly bears, caribou, moose, Dall sheep and wolves.

There is just one road running through the park for 92 miles traversing the valleys and high mountain passes with breathtaking scenery along the way. During the Alaskan summer from late May to early September private vehicles may drive the first fifteen paved miles of this road and stop at the numerous pull-outs to take photos of Denali Mountain and the marvellous scenery. A bus tour will take you deeper into the park increasing chances to see more wildlife, or you can hike or bike in the wilderness.

Although most visitors arrive in the summer months, fantastic autumn colours can often be seen as early as August while winter is the time only for hardy travellers looking for tranquillity despite the challenges of extreme weather. Whatever time of year you do visit you can expect excitement, incredible vistas and an amazing experience at Denali National Park.

Haleakala National Park, Hawaii

Haleakala National Park

Haleakala National Park was established in 1916 on Maui and protects around 30 thousand acres of land much of which is designated as wilderness. Highlights of this park are its stunning volcanic crater, extensive lava flows and the cinder cones which dot the desolate terrain and often provoke comparison to a lunar landscape.

A highlight of the Haleakala National Park and an unforgettable experience is to be at the summit of its volcano to watch the sunrise over the edge of rim. Gradually you will then see the surrounding landscape light up with rich colours and deeply sculpted contours, quite different to other landscapes you might have seen. Follow this by a hike amidst the cinder landscape, maybe spot some of the native birds, and see the endangered silversword plant that still thrives in this apparently forbidding environment.

There are 3 visitor centres in the Park open daily where visitors can pick up useful guides and information, and the park itself is open year round. There are guided tours available and also the opportunity of a thrilling bike ride from the park’s entrance back down to the coast.

Shenandoah National Park, Virginia

Shenandoah National Park

Set in Virginia and only one hour’s drive away from Washington D.C., the Shenandoah National Park is one of the most popular parks in the eastern USA and attracts visitors year round but especially in the autumn when visitors come to see the rich contrasts of autumn leaf colours, or in spring for the equally colourful wildflowers. Forming part of the Blue Ridge Mountains the park has many high peaks and forested slopes with a huge variety of trees, and is home to many different animals as well as bird species.

A highlight for visitors to the park is driving the Skyline Drive in the park which meanders 105 miles along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and is the only public road. There are many scenic overlooks along the way as well as a larger area for a longer stop off at Big Meadows. The Skyline Drive is the starting point for many short or longer trails, which are the best way to get up close to the beautiful surroundings. The Stony Man trail is one of the shorter hikes which passes over a mountain summit to bring visitors to a spectacular cliff overlook. Whichever trail you pick you’ll be certain of fantastic vistas and an escape to relaxation and recreation.
