100 days of parks and recreation
See the US's Nation Parks from Honolulu to Las Vegas
The US’s National Park Service turns 100 in 2016. To celebrate the tour operator Globus will visit 34 of the country’s national parks on a 103-day tour. It begins on July 7 in Honolulu, HI at Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial and Museum, and ends on October 17 in Las Vegas. In between, travellers will discover volcanic landscapes in Hawai’i Volcanoes and Haleakala National Parks; the giant General Sherman and General Grant trees in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks (California); alpine scenery and wildlife in Denali (Alaska), Mount Rainier (Washington), Glacier (Montana), Grand Teton (Wyoming), Rocky Mountain (Colorado) and Acadia (Maine) National Parks. Most of the trip will be done overland, with flights between regions; one week will be spent aboard a cruise ship in Alaska. The price is hefty — US$26,988 per person — and airfare isn’t included.
