Although a hot destination for those coming from outside of the United States, exploring the country you come from is sometimes overlooked by the most adventurous travelers. I’ve met people who have journeyed half way around the world, visiting the jungles of Vietnam, hiking the Andes, exploring the streets of Europe, venturing into the Outback, eating Bangkok pad thai, but who have never traveled much of anywhere right here in the United States. And it’s certainly not because the U.S. is not home to some of the world’s most spectacular, diverse and interesting scenery. In fact, this North American nation is full of natural wonders, awe-inspiring vistas, deep canyons and tall mountains. For the adventurous, the United States is a veritable treasure trove of unique, beautiful and wild destinations. In what other country can you cruise past glaciers and whales in Alaska, explore America’s wacky interior on a long road trip, explore the deserts and canyons of the southwest, see the California coast or look up a giant redwood in the Pacific Northwest or even explore the bustling streets of New York City. When it comes to possibilities for adventure, all you have to do is look around the United States for a plethora of amazing, fun, adventurous and beautiful trips.
One of the problems with choosing a trip of the United States, however, is that because the country is so immense and there is so much to see, visit and explore, deciding which American adventure you’d like to partake in can be really difficult. That’s why signing up for a small group adventure tour could be just the way to narrow the possibilities and have a great adventure that is sure to show you one of the highlights of the country. So, ok, I know what you are thinking. “A travel tour? Isn’t that what old people do?” But, the reality of travel tours these days are far from riding around the country in a giant air-conditioned bus next to blue-haired Edna. Travel tours have come a long way since the days of giant air-conditioned buses and old ladies. Today there are tours designed specifically for the independent, adventure traveler. That’s right—active, interesting and adventurous tours that allow travelers to explore and experience a foreign place. First off, they keep the groups small, usually capping out at 16 people, so you won’t be traveling around with some awkwardly huge group of gawking tourists. Second, these tours don’t just scratch the surface of the places you visit. In fact, by using a combination of local and experienced guides, you’ll often see and experience MORE than you would on your own. Also, because these tours have already been developed to showcase the best of the best, you’ll save yourself from countless hours of potentially pointless research trying to find out where to go and what to eat. Oh, and don’t worry, you definitely won’t be experiencing any part of the United States from the window of some bus the entire time. These tours of the United States have you biking, trekking, hiking, road-tripping and sailing through some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. So, buckle up and get ready to explore this amazing continent.
