Active Family Holidays in North America

The land of opportunity and adventure par excellence, this region of the world has vast, open, dramatic landscapes that make it perfect for active family holidays, whether you fancy making like cowboys in the Wild West landscapes of the Grand Canyon or Yosemite or skiing or snowboarding in the some of the world’s best and most family-friendly ski resorts.

National parks all over North America are ideal for outdoorsy families looking for adventure, with plenty of scope for hiking, wild swimming, cycling and animal trekking, plus the chance to camp out under the stars – every child’s and a good few adults’ dream!

Organised activity holidays can be an excellent way of tackling the USA or Canada with children, or conversely, be as free as a bird by hiring a motorhome, that classic American holiday option.
