Luxury Travel in North America
An incredible vacation in a scenic destination with abundant wildlife, vineyards nestled in rolling hills, towering mountains, deep canyons and European ambience does not have to be hours away by plane. Choose an inspiring Connections journey or let us put together a custom itinerary that reveals the many treasures awaiting visitors to North America — treasures hidden virtually within our own backyard. Unspoiled, sparsely populated and still within the United States, Alaska's varied terrain includes towering mountains, pristine coastlines, jagged glaciers and even dense rainforests. You can also admire the scenery from a small expedition cruise ship as you make your way through the fjords and waterways.
From the rivers and canyon lands of the Southwest to the snow-capped mountains and wildflower-dotted meadows of the Rocky Mountains and the faint traces left by Lewis and Clark on their expedition to Montana, the American West has much to offer the intrepid traveller looking for outdoor adventure. Raft on rivers running between red-rock canyons and see soaring rock spires on the mighty Colorado or hike spectacular trails in the Pacific Northwest. Camp under the stars in comfortable riverside tents and dine on delicious multi-course meals prepared by your staff.
With A&K's handpicked selection of unique independent itineraries, you can experience California your way. In the San Francisco Bay area, sail near the Golden Gate Bridge or cycle through one of the many nearby vineyards. Savor the magnificent wine region of Sonoma and Napa Valley leisurely, stopping to visit premier vineyards with your personal guide and enjoy private wine tastings.
Western Canada beckons visitors with her ancient rainforests, rugged mountains, hanging glaciers and glistening lakes that offer a multitude of outdoor adventures, including fishing, skiing, golfing and hiking. Eastern Canada offers a blend of city and country. In Ontario, fly over Niagara Falls for an unforgettable bird's-eye view and delve into Niagara wine country, visiting boutique estates and sampling the best wines of the region. In Montreal, Quebec, a romantic, exotic French heritage awaits with unique architecture and decidedly European customs and flair. Nearby Mont Tremblant teems with outdoor activities like rafting, kayaking, cycling, hiking and rock climbing.
