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.
Cycling California Wine Country
2019 is here, and a new year means a clean slate: a chance to dream, and to dream on a grand scale. That’s what we’ll be doing here at Grand American Adventures – and as a starting point we’ve put together just a few of our grandest dreams that we’re making sure come true for our travellers in 2019.
Unmissable. Iconic. So beautiful they stop you in your tracks – the grand vistas of North America are some of the best in the world. It’s the kind of scenery that delivers views that make your heart skip a beat at every conceivable opportunity.
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.
With Halloween on the horizon, we're delving into the realms of the supernatural. So turn the lights down low, check your doors and windows are locked, and delight in the ghoulish stories from the USA's most haunted locations...
There are somethings Americans just do better than us. Pizza for one. Big glossy shoulder-padded TV soap operas for another. And Autumn too, or Fall, as they call it, which, when you think about it is a much more practical term. I mean leaves fall, they don’t…autumn.
There’s no shortage of incredible hikes in North America, as any traveller can tell you; the sheer scale and variety of this landscape is as mesmerising as it is rewarding.
Raise a glass! Friday 3rd August is International Beer Day, and who are we to argue with such an important event?
