COVER IMAGE Brown and grizzly bears live in the forests and mountains of North America, primarily in Alaska and on islands like Kodiak. Male bears are solitary creatures and tend to congregate at prime Alaskan fishing spots when the salmon swim upstream for spawning. During this time, bears gather to feast on the fish that will sustain them for the winter ahead. Female bears and their cubs tend to stay together. Grizzlies once covered much of North America and even roamed the Great Plains however today, only around 1000 grizzlies remain in the continental US. To see these magnificent creatures, stay at Kodiak Brown Bear Centre, or book our Bears of Brooks Falls package, both on page 22.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT ON OUR JOURNEYS... CULTURE & HERITAGE There’s no better way to experience a region than by immersing yourself in local culture. Gain a genuine appreciation of a place, it’s people and landscapes by learning directly from those who truly understand it. Meet and stay with locals, explore historical sites and marketplaces, and eat traditional delicacies for a sincere, rich experience.

WILDLIFE & WILDERNESS Getting up close and personal with wildlife that you’ve only seen in magazines can be a surprisingly touching experience. Witness animals in their natural environment - often far-flung, breathtaking backdrops. By exploring mountains, lakes, gorges, plains and rainforests you’ll feel an honest connection to a place and its wild inhabitants.

ACTIVE ADVENTURES Our adventure journeys are created to offer a rewarding journey without needing a wealth of previous travel experience. Enjoy all the comforts and conveniences such as exceptional cuisine and friendly porters to carry and transfer luggage. Many of our adventures could be found in a ‘hard adventure’ category, but physical exertion is not the aim. And you can rest assured there’ll be a comfortable night’s sleep at the end of an active day.

WEST COAST

Oregon SEVEN WONDERS OF OREGON Sure the Seven Wonders of the World are impressive, but have you heard about the Seven Wonders of Oregon? The perpetually snow-capped peak of Mount Hood can be seen from kilometres away and the forests and lavender-filled valleys are beautiful. The 585 kilometres of Oregon coastline is open for everyone to experience, to watch the waves or hike the cliffs. Just a short drive from Portland, you’ll find the Columbia River Gorge, the largest national scenic area in the USA. The Painted Hills reveal millions of years of history in the layers of the mountains of earth. At Smith Rock, towers of volcanic ash rise like spires out of the dust of the desert. Hike, ride a horse or take the gondola to the summit of the Wallowas. The waters of Crater Lake are such a beautiful deep blue – no wonder, it’s the USA’s deepest lake.

Portland PORTLAND IS HAPPENING NOW!

Portland has been described as the USA’s most European city – a great walking city that celebrates the arts and a culture of great cuisine and artisan coffee, beer and wines, with neighbourhoods that each offer something different. Portland’s 12 distinct districts include Downtown Portland, a compact, walkable area that offers easy access to great food, green spaces and cultural activities; the Pearl District, where the loading docks and cobbled streets hint at the area’s past as the warehouse district; the Lloyd District, accessible by light rail or streetcar and home to Oregon’s largest shopping mall; the Alberta Arts District, home to shops and galleries, which erupts with a colourful street fair each month; and the Belmont and Hawthorne Districts, which boast block after block of vintage and indie shops, cafes and bars.

Since the restoration, Travel & Leisure Magazine has named the Weasku Inn as one of their ‘Top 25 Lodges in the United States’.

Originally opened in 1915, the historic Crater Lake Lodge welcomes you with a boldly stated fireplace in the Great Hall. Following extensive renovations the lodge also offers an atmosphere reminiscent of the 1920s and immerses visitors in its rustic charm.

INTRODUCING BREATHTAKING AND ICONIC

WEST COAST

Yosemite

EXPERIENCES NOT TO BE MISSED Mariposa County, home to Yosemite, is open year-round and offers something unique in each season. In early spring (March -May), the waterfalls are at their peak and it is the best time for biking and hiking. Experience the thrill of rock climbing and zip lining year-round or come in winter (December – February) for breathtaking skiing and snowshoeing.

HALF DOME Granite, water and light are the hallmarks of Yosemite and the granite monoliths here are unrivalled. Half Dome is among the most iconic rock formations in the world.

EL CAPITAN At more than 900 metres from base to summit, El Capitan is the largest single block of granite in the world. It is the mecca for the sport of climbing, drawing athletes from all over the world to test their skills and endurance on the imposing face of Half Dome.

YOSEMITE FALLS The best-known waterfall in the park is Yosemite Falls. It is also the tallest waterfall in North America and fifth highest in the world with a total drop of 739 metres. Early spring is the best time to visit to see Yosemite Falls.

GIANT SEQUOIAS The most impressive plant in the park is the giant sequoia, a species that is considered to be among the oldest and most massive living things on earth. There are three groves in Yosemite but the largest and most well-known in Mariposa Grove, home to more than 500 mature specimens, some as old as 3000 years.

INTRODUCING ROSE OF THE DESERT

WEST COAST

Nevada

From extraordinary landscapes, culinary curiosities and historic locations, Nevada offers limitless destinations for you to experience.

VALLEY OF FIRE STATE PARK Valley of Fire State Park, about 84 kilometres northeast of Las Vegas, is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park. The park gets its name from its stunning red-sandstone formations, which seem to blaze when the sun sets. Explore trails through canyons and past rock formations. Petroglyphs - ancient rock art - can be found throughout the park, but they’re most easily viewed at the Atlatl Rock area near the western end of the park.

L AKE TAHOE Lake Tahoe – one of the largest alpine lakes in North America, situated on the Nevada-California border and surrounded by the forested mountains of the Sierra Nevada and Carson Range – offers recreational opportunities in all seasons, from skiing in winter to kayaking in summer. Known for the clarity of its water and cold temperatures, Lake Tahoe is an especially popular recreation area for water sports.

RED ROCK CANYON Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is just 27 kilometres west of the Las Vegas strip, but a world away in terms of environment and ambience. Red Rock Canyon offers almost 80,000 hectares of unique geological features to explore on hiking paths, by mountain bike, on horseback or through one of the many trips offered in the area. Red Rock Canyon can also be enjoyed by car: there’s a 20-kilometre scenic loop drive with multiple trailheads and lookout points along the way.

INTRODUCING CITIES OF COWBOYS & CULTURE

SOUTH WEST

Dallas Fort Worth STOPOVER IN DALLAS-FORT WORTH Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Airport sits between the two cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, and is a great starting point for travellers wanting to experience two very unique US destinations. Internationally known for football, oil and tax-free shopping, there’s so much more to experience in Dallas. Klyde Warren Park sits over an eight lane freeway on two hectares in the heart of the city’s urban centre - think yoga, food trucks, kids activities, concerts and more. Night owls will love the Deep Ellum neighbourhood, a hot bed of blues and soul in the early 20th century that became a thriving alternate music scene in the 90s. And lovers of craft beer can’t miss the Efrogs brewery tour that visits four craft breweries. Foodies must check out one of the fathers of South Western cuisine Dean Fearing’s new restaurant Fearing’s. Also high on the must-try list, are chef Stephen Pyles’ Flora Street Café, the heavenly barbeque at Pecan Lodge and the famous restaurant incubator at Trinity Groves. Moving over to Fort Worth, all visitors must head to the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. Shop for an authentic cowboy hat, take a walking tour, enjoy some great Mexican food and watch the twice daily Fort Worth Herd cattle drive. There’s also an indoor rodeo on the weekends. While in Fort Worth, a visit to the Ale Trail is a must do. The trail is a group of nine breweries scattered throughout the city. Grab your Ale Trail passport and start collecting the stamps! You can also hop on a Cowtown Cycle Party tour, an ecofriendly way to see the city and enjoy a beverage or two. If you have the time, check out Fort Worth’s cultural district and take in classic art and sculpture at the Kimbell Art Museum, quirky, contemporary art at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and unique works of Americana at Amon Carter Museum of American Art.

Tombstone Monument Ranch is surrounded by kilometres of rugged, open country, with views of the Dragoon Mountains. A prosperous mining town in the 1880s, Tombstone quickly earned a reputation for deadly shoot-outs and vendettas and plenty of lawless characters. When you visit, you’ll meet them. It has been said that guests don’t just feel like they got away, they feel like they travelled back in time… The ranch was purpose built as an 1880s Main Street with dirt roads and boardwalks. The 18 spacious guest rooms are individually decorated in turn-of-the-century style. You may find yourself waking up in the Mining Office, Miss Kitty’s Bordello or the Blacksmith’s Shop.

This celebrated historic hotel located directly on the rim of the Grand Canyon first opened its doors in 1905. The architect envisioned the hotel as a cross between a Swiss chalet and a Norwegian villa. The hotel was built from local limestone and Oregon pine and many considered it the most elegant hotel west of the Mississippi River. In 1987 the hotel was designated a National Historic Landmark. In the past, the hotel has hosted such luminaries as Theodore Roosevelt, Albert Einstein, President Bill Clinton, Sir Paul McCartney and countless others. Today, El Tovar retains its elegant charm and is widely considered the crown jewel of Historic National Park Lodges. Located on the canyon rim it features a fine dining room, lounge, gift shop and newsstand. Due to the historic nature of the hotel no two rooms are alike, which gives the hotel its distinctive charm.

INTRODUCING THE MIGHTY FIVE®

SOUTH WEST

Utah Utah’s five national parks draw millions of travellers each year to witness magnificent sunrises and sunsets and travel through awesome canyons.

CANYONL ANDS NATIONAL PARK Imagine wave after wave of yawning canyons and towering mesas, pinnacles, cliffs and spires, all stretching across southeastern Utah – this is Canyonlands National Park. It is where breathtakingly deep canyons drop suddenly out of the desert and twist and turn through the plateau.

ARCHES NATIONAL PARK Arches National Park (pictured bottom right) protects an awe-inspiring landscape with the largest proliferation of arches in the world – more than 2000 in total. Arches is the perfect park for hiking and has a 65 kilometre scenic drive that crosses a vast, glorious landscape.

CAPITOL REEF NATIONAL PARK The undiscovered gem of the national parks in Utah, Capitol Reef National Park (pictured centre right) is comparable to a strange planet unlike anything you’ve ever seen before with spectacular cliffs, hidden arches, massive domes and a deep canyon.

BRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK The towering hoodoos, narrow fins and natural bridges of Bryce Canyon defy explanation. An overnight stay in the park is a must to witness dawn and dusk, when the pink-orange sandstone goes through dramatic transformations of light, shadow and colour.

ZION NATIONAL PARK Zion National Park’s canyons and mesas (pictured top) are spectacular, even in a state known for its dramatic landscapes. The breathtaking Zion Canyon is the centrepiece of the park and is surrounded by high plateaus, sheer canyons and monolithic cliffs.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY We arrange the provision of Travel Products which are provided by third party suppliers. We do not ourselves provide the Travel Products you may receive on your holiday.

Your acceptance of the vouchers constitutes those terms and conditions as the entire agreement between you and the relevant supplier and you bear all costs or losses incurred as a consequence of your failure to comply with them.

We are not responsible for any criminal conduct of any third party. We are not liable for any injury, damage, loss, delay, additional expenses or inconvenience caused by your acts, omissions or defaults, your state of health, medical condition or circumstances or other reasons which are beyond our control, including force majeure events or failure of equipment or machinery. Maximum Liability Despite any other provision of these terms and conditions, to the extent permitted by law, our maximum liability to you or any third party is limited to the price you have paid us for the booking. 11. COMPLAINTS We endeavour to ensure that the arrangements we have made for you are implemented as arranged. If a problem occurs, the most practical way to deal with it is attempt resolution with the supplier. If you fail to follow this course, any claim for compensation may be reduced or denied. If you have any unresolved complaint, details should be lodged in writing (with supporting documentation, including efforts made with the supplier to resolve it) with your travel agent or directly with us within 30 days of your holiday concluding. 12.
