This week we're celebrating the centenary of the Grand Canyon! This week marks 100 years since the Grand Canyon was designated a protected national park.
Cycling through Wine Country
From the saddle you can savour the very best of California wine country, with routes that link up fine vineyards with opportunities to enjoy the fruits of your labour with included wine tastings along the way. Your ride takes you on quiet roads through Napa Valley and Sonoma County, where the vineyards stretch to the horizon in aesthetically pleasing green lines. Along the way you’ll stop for indulgent moments that are well-deserved: enjoy a recovery hot spring spa and massage treatment, wine tastings, and a visit to the millennia old Redwood forests that California is known for. And if you’re more of a bikes and beers cyclist, then never fear – there’s craft beers at the Stone Brewing restaurant as well.

Exploring unique destinations and discovering authentic and memorable experiences in the Americas is something we like to think we’re pretty experienced in. The big sights are, of course, a must - but when it comes to delving deeper below the surface, this vast continent has so much more to explore.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site is a sought-after status, and in America’s vast and dramatic west, it protects a number of the USA’s open spaces and natural wonders.
From overawing canyons to the serenity of ancient forests, these world heritage sites represent the very best of the phenomenal landscapes of this vast and varied nation.
Adventures abound in North America. There’s never a shortage of inspiring views to keep you to going around the next bend or up to the top of the next hill, but what about a vantage point many never get to see?
Seeing the Americas from the water gives you a whole new perspective. These are some of our favourite experiences on the water.
