US National Parks Destination guide

As the world leader in travel experiences since 1947, we connect you to the real US National Parks in a way like no other. Breathe in the fresh mountain air. Listen to the whispers of the trees. Feel the spray of glacial waterfalls. From the moment you enter the national parks of the United States, you’ll sense the magic. There are 61 national parks across the country, making up 14 percent of the land in the US, and they hold some of the world’s most extraordinary wonders. Our national parks tours take you to the most incredible sights, from 300-foot sequoia trees, to a canyon with two billion years of history. Explore the ancient cliff dwellings of the Ancestral Puebloan people in Mesa Verde National Park, discover thousands of natural sandstone arches in Arches National Park, admire the thundering Bridal Veil Falls and towering trees in Yosemite, and see the bubbling hot springs in Yellowstone. Top it all off with a helicopter flight over the colossal Grand Canyon, for an unforgettable view of nature’s brilliance. Travel with us and unlock the infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
