America’s National Parks are true treasures, providing millions of annual nature-loving visitors a clear view of the stunning diversity of the country's natural wonders. Standing above the clouds on canyon cliffs and mountainsides, or diving deep into the cool blue waters of the coasts, and seeing the wildlife of all kinds are but a few of the life-changing experiences offered in national parks.
There's no wrong way to experience a national park. Hop into a kayak to explore life-laden wetlands, lace up your boots and strap on a pack heading for the high country, or strike out on your own to explore landmark park highlights to get the most of your adventure! From sweeping Yellowstone vistas to the purple majesty of the storied Great Smoky Mountains, the acrid whiff of fresh magma forming the Hawaiian islands, or the immense and amazing subtropical wilderness of the Everglades, there exists a National Park experience certain to appeal to groups of all ages, interests, and abilities.
Not to be overlooked, lesser-known parks make some of the best destinations from Lassen Volcanic in California, the Guadalupe Mountains and Big Bend in Texas to the Dry Tortugas, 70 miles outside of Key West – a few hours of research can be both fun and enlightening! With a little thinking outside the box, it’s possible to build an entire getaway around the park of your choice, and your seasoned Adventure Student Travel team will ensure you and your group enjoys the National Parks vacation of a lifetime, surrounded by unrivaled natural splendor with an itinerary matched to your exacting specifications.
