Ultimate guide to USA National Parks


To celebrate the release of the 2020 Globus USA & Canada Preview brochure, we’re taking you on a journey through North America’s most treasured National Parks.

 

 

From the jaw-dropping landscape of the Grand Canyon to the dramatic mountains that oversee Denali, there’s no denying that the United States National Parks are an expansive group of sites to bear witness to.

 

With so much to see, it can be difficult to know where to start so we’ve created this guide to some of America’s National Parks to help you, with tips on what to do, where to go and what not to miss.

 

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, IDAHO, MONTANA & WYOMING

For nature, animal and outdoor lovers, America’s first National Park is the place to be! Covering more than 7500-square kilometres, you’re bound to see many of Mother Nature’s treats in every which direction.

 

ACTIVITIES

For outdoor-enthusiasts, Yellowstone is the gift that keeps on giving, with plenty of activities to be enjoyed year-round.

Summer:  fishing, white water rafting, horseback riding

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK, ARIZONA

Prepare to have your senses overwhelmed when you visit the Grand Canyon. At 446km long, 29km wide and 1.6km deep (not to mention the unique combination of geologic colours), the Grand Canyon is a massive sight to take in and definitely worth spending a couple of days exploring.

 

ACTIVITIES

There’s a lot to be admired at the Grand Canyon – if we’re being really honest, simply enjoying the view can last for hours as you take it all in! However, if you’ve got the time to do a little bit more, here are some of our suggestions:

Ride a mule into the Canyon

Sightsee on-board the Grand Canyon Railway

Raft along the Colorado River

See America’s tallest mountain as you try to spot the Alaskan Big 5 (moose, bears, dall sheep, caribou and wolves) in Denali National Park. There is plenty to see and do in the state’s first National Park, which was established in 1917 as Mount McKinley National Park and renamed Denali National Park in 1980.
