There are so many land tours that you can take in North America, it would be impossible to review all of them. So here are just a few glimpses into the kind of tours that are available. From the spectacular national parks and sun-drenched California coast to the historic landmarks in the East and the charm of the South. Experience New England's brilliant fall foliage, discover Alaska's breathtaking Denali National Park, sit in reserved seats at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry, visit the famous memorials in Washington DC, and take part in special events such as the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena. Throughout North America there are behind-the-scenes gems you typically can't do on your own. Spend time with an Amish family or visit a bake shop to sample Hawaii's famous sweetbread. Tour the buffalo safari in Custer State Park in search of bison, elk, and deer.
In Canada, explore its picturesque isles and craggy shores in the east, dazzling mountain lakes and world-class resorts in the Canadian Rockies, cosmopolitan cities, and rugged Yukon Territory. Immerse yourself in the French ambiance of walled Québec, charming Scottish Nova Scotia, or very "British" Victoria. Come face to face with remote fishing villages, polar bears in the "Land of Nanook," intricate totem poles carved by First Nations people, breathtaking national parks, and historic sites. Visit a dogsled facility to meet the huskies and their trainers and stop at the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Stables for an encounter with the "Mounties."
