  • Zip lining Whistler

So, you’re ready to stop having boring holidays. Where do you start looking for amazing experiences?

Here at TrekAmerica we’re ready to help you make the switch. Here are our top 10 least boring experiences in the USA and Canada – but we’re warning you now, once you’ve got a taste for this kinda thing you’re never going to want to go back…

1. Hundreds of metres up in the air over the Grand Canyon

Helicopter Flight over Grand Canyon

Think non-stop epic views. This is the Grand Canyon from the sky, soaring like an eagle over one of the most famous landmarks in the USA, and the world – and you get to do it all from a flippin’ helicopter.

2. Upside Down Screaming

Cedar Point Rollercoaster

Cedar Point is a pilgrimage every coasterhead needs to make once in their life, because this is where some of the tallest, highest, fastest rollercoasters in the world can be found. Come get your adrenalin pumping!

3. Plunging into the rapids

Raft the Kicking Horse River

Upgrade a dip in the sea to a heart-pounding, white-knuckle white-water rafting adventure in the heart of Canada’s incredible Rocky Mountains.

4. Metres away from a herd of Bison

You pause and hold your breath, reaching for your camera as quietly as you can – and right there in front of you is a huge herd of Bison. And it isn’t just Bison; Yellowstone is full of all sorts of amazing wildlife.

5. Cruising down the Strip

Vegas

Vegas is party central, baby – but if you’re going to do it, do it in style. We go big with an included party bus down the strip for a no-holds-barred night on the town that’ll go down in history.

6. On a 4x4 in the Desert

Meet Navajo in Monument Valley

A Navajo-guided backroads tour is hands down the best way to see Monument Valley. You’ll get myths, legends and campfire tales from your local Navajo guide, and see bits of the valley you’d never see from the road.

7. On a Canadian Cable Car

Gondola Whistler

Whistler’s mountain gondala, or the little bubble cable cars, are the perfect way to get up close with these famous mountains – all the views, none of the sweat. Wanna go up a gear? Swap the gentle pace for whistling down the zip lines through the forests with amazing mountain views, or hiring a mountain bike is easy for anyone with a single-track mind.

8. Riding into the Sun Set like a Goddamn Cowboy

Horse back riding

Howdy, partner – welcome to cowboy camp. Saddle up for the ride of your life as you join a real live western, with horse riding through the desert and camping under the stars.

9. Dancing the Night Away in New Orleans

Jazz it up in New Orleans

As night falls, and the sounds of jazz begin to drift on the air, the streets of Nola come to life. This is where the magic happens, under the moon and the neon strip lights.

10. Next to your own work of graffiti art in the middle of the desert

Cadillac Ranch

It’s totally unique. You simply can’t find this anywhere else – huge upended American cruisers nose-diving into the desert sands, covered in graffiti. Everyone has a chance to add their own little bit of art, meaning the appearance is constantly changing – your moment will always be unique. Leave your mark and be part of something awesome.
