If it's adventure you're after, then an optional hike deep into the canyon on the Bright Angel Trail will make sure you're pushed to your limits, but rewarded for your efforts with stunning views. Let's not forget about the aptly named 'Ooh Aah Point' on the South Kaibab Trail, which again, delivers breath-taking views.

Leave those sore heads and empty pockets behind and get back to nature with a stop at the awe-inspiring and stunning Yosemite National Park. There's a reason that Yosemite is California's most loved national park, with its ancient Giant Sequoia trees that tower high above you. You'll also have the opportunity to spot some of the USA's most iconic wildlife, including black bear and coyotes. Both easy and challenging hikes await you and whichever you opt for you'll be brought face-to-face with stunning glacier-carved granite monoliths, deep valleys and spectacular waterfalls. Take to two wheels on a bike and explore Yosemite Village with the wind in your hair, or for a different way to see the park, why not enjoy a float down the Merced River on a rubber ring?

Touring with TrekAmerica

TrekAmerica was founded 45 years ago, on a simple concept; get together a group of free-wheeling, independent types, pack up a van with tents, camping gear and a trek leader and follow the road, hitting all the key places along the way. Today, not much has changed, and as the longest running North American, small group tour company, they are proud to say no-one knows the area like them. With ‘Tours for Non-Tourists’, they love bringing together small groups of young, international travellers to experience the best of USA, Canada, Alaska and South America; showing them America's big highlights from bustling cities to jaw-dropping National Parks, and incredible places so hidden only locals like them know about them.

TrekAmerica tours are designed specifically for young, international travellers aged 18-38, so you're guaranteed to be travelling with people of a similar age, all with a sense of fun, adventure and a keen desire to explore. Whether you're travelling alone or with friends, you'll soon be surrounded by like-minded people who will quickly become your new best trek mates. The tour leaders are home-grown, knowledgeable and fun loving folks with a passion for showing you the real Americas. Only the most enthusiastic and committed people are chosen to become tour leaders; they are trained extensively as TrekAmerica believe that the most important ingredient for the success of a tour is a great leader.

With year round departures and over 50 unique itineraries from 3 days to 3 months in length, TrekAmerica offer a wide range of tours and departures and whatever you choose they guarantee you the experience of a lifetime! Each trip offers fantastic value for money; they include all accommodation and transport, your own experienced tour leader, all national park fees and selected meals on some tours. Plus there are no single supplements for those travelling alone. They also include exciting activities along the way so you get serious ‘bang for your buck’. You have a choice of accommodation on each tour; you can opt for full on communing with nature with the camping option, or go the hostel route of group accommodation with the Budget Lodging option, or if you need your creature comforts, the Plus option is for you.

Whichever tour you choose, fun, freedom and flexibility are key to TrekAmerica’s style of travel and with interests as individual as their travellers, you're able to hang out with the group when you want or do your own thing. In addition to the many included highlights and activities, there are also lots of optional activities for you to choose from during your trip. They keep these optional so you have the flexibility to do the things you want to and leave out the things you don't, according to taste and budget.
