Walking Holidays in the Americas
From North America, a land with jaw-dropping and iconic protected wilderness areas on a grand scale, to the humid equatorial regions of Central and South America, HF Holidays have a great range of guided walking and sightseeing holidays in the Americas.
The USA and Canada have much to offer lovers of the great outdoors with their vast areas of national park protecting precious wilderness and wildlife. Stand on the rim of the Grand Canyon for jaw-dropping views, wonder at the formation of the sandstone rock arches and pinnacles in Arches National Park or feel the heat in the surreal landscapes of Death Valley – the hottest place on Earth. For cooler climes, head for Alaska or Canada – with their sublime scenery of lakes, forest and mountains, which are home to brown and grizzly bears, moose and magnificent bald eagles. Admire the world’s largest non-polar ice cap and drink in the wilderness of the Canadian Rockies.
Central America is epitomised by lush, tropical rainforest and idyllic islands encircled by white-sand beaches. Head to the forests of Costa Rica for colourful birds, reptiles and plants. Or immerse yourself in the Caribbean traditions of Grenada and Barbados, a strong contrast to the curious island of Cuba, where sultry rhythms still play out.
South America is a must for lovers of the outdoors, with exceptional walking holidays in Peru, Chile and Argentina. Immerse yourself in the mysteries and remains of the Inca empire, walk the classic Inca Trail and stand in Machu Picchu in Peru. Get close to wildlife on Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands, and get back to the wild in Patagonia. To really get away though, head to Chile’s Easter Islands to meet the moai.
