A world of cultures in one place
North America is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Caribbean Sea to the south. It is the third largest continent and home to over 20 countries. With so many cultures in one place much of North America enjoys a blend of languages and customs. Discover the Spanish influenced Mexico or the French speaking districts of Canada and explore the exotic island countries of Antigua and the Bahamas. The United States is a popular holiday destination and synonymous with the film-making world, tour California to experience the glamour of Hollywood and LA. Visit New York to see the Statue of Liberty and get caught up in the vibrant lifestyle of this fast paced city. From mountain ranges, forests, beaches and mid-west deserts, North America has it all.
North America blends several cultures and languages. Tour the famous cities of the United States such as San Francisco and Washington DC. Retreat to the Caribbean islands and swim in azure waters. Spend time on the slopes of the Canadian resorts of Whistler and Lake Louise or hike forest trails in Mexico.
When To Go?
North America is a year round destination. For those snow sports fans Canada is the ideal location during the winter. If a beach break is favoured retreat to the Caribbean islands at any time of the year. The seasons play out traditionally with the hottest months from June-August and the coldest found in November-January. Book your trip in September for the best deals on flights and to avoid the crowds.
How To Get There?
A reliable international and regional flight network serves North America. Fly direct to Canada from Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow International airports. Flights to the United States from the UK are available with Continental Airlines, British Airways, KLM and Virgin Atlantic. The Caribbean is connected indirectly through a hub at New York's JFK International Airport.
Tour North America by road to see the best of the ever-changing landscape. Starting in the north pass through the majestic snow capped Rocky Mountains of Canada. Travel down the east coast to stop in on New York and take the iconic Route 66 across mid-west America to California. For a relaxing retreat from the road take a short flight out to rest on the beaches in Belize and Barbados.
