Elegant Journeys

North and Central America

Blessed with an abundance of natural resources, vibrant cities, and an indomitable spirit of patriotism, philanthropy, and optimism, the Americas remain as compellingly attractive today as they did to explorers and early colonists hundreds of years ago. From the Rocky Mountains to the Florida Everglades, and the expansive tundra of the Canadian High Arctic all the way to the tropical rain forests of Belize, there is truly something for every type of traveler in North and Central America.


O Canada... a country of snowy mountaintops and cosmopolitan cities, poutine and maple syrup, and some of the nicest people our world has to offer. A haven for outdoor enthusiasts, Canada offers a myriad of options—kayak with killer whales on Vancouver Island, heli-ski in Alberta, photograph polar bears on the edge of Hudson Bay, beachcombing on Nova Scotia’s rocky coasts, cast a fly to steelhead trout in British Colombia’s gin-clear waters, or chase elusive narwhals in the Arctic. The cityscape of Vancouver offers a bit of sexiness for fashionistas and foodies, while way over yonder the greenery of Newfoundland encompasses a sense of peaceful stillness. Meanwhile, the Quebec-quoi of Montreal will satisfy any French wanderlust you may be feeling.


A place so spectacular and fulfilling we almost think of it as its own country rather than one of the fifty states, Alaska's incredible scenery leaves us breathless time and time again. Our 49th state has so many cool claims to fame: it hosts the tallest peak in North America (Denali), it is our largest state, it has more coastline (34,000 miles) than the rest of the states combined, and borders three different seas—the Arctic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and the Bering Sea. It has more than 3,000 rivers and 3 million lakes and more than half of the world’s glaciers. Whether you opt to explore by cruise, on foot, or by seaplane, the impressive state of Alaska should be on everyone’s bucket list.

Continental United States

'From sea to shining sea' the lower 48 states of America offer a cultural melting pot unlike any other place in the world. Sophisticated city streets complement the vast wildness of its 58 National Parks, and all the highways in between make for lots of hidden gems and secret getaways—full of adventure, music, and incredible art—from north to south, east to west, and Alabama to Wyoming. Regional cuisines and local specialties are as diverse as the landscape: enjoy a lobster roll on the coast of Maine, shrimp and grits in the Carolinas, BBQ in Texas, deep-dish pizza in Chicago, a bison burger in Montana, and organic farm-to-table delicacies in the California Wine Country.


The United States’ youngest state, Hawaii, consists of 137 islands that make up the most geographically isolated island chain on earth, contains 10 of the world’s 14 climate zones, and is the only state whose land mass continues to grow because of volcanic eruptions. There are no snakes, no billboards, and no gambling—nothing not to like! To complement the world-class resorts, visitors can engage in an array of outdoor activities—surf, mountain bike up the side of a volcano, helicopter to a distant waterfall, channel your inner Hawaii 5-0 in an outrigger canoe, or sway to the dulcet tones of a ukulele at a sunset luau.


It's hard not to find yourself craving Mexico, no matter how many times you may have been there. The rich flavors of a mole sauce, the familiar sounds of a mariachi band, and the vibrant colors make for an all-encompassing sensory experience. Explore the cobbled streets of colonial towns like San Miguel de Allende or Oaxaca, witness the monarch butterfly or grey whale migrations unique to Mexico, retrace the footsteps of Frieda Khalo and Diego Rivera in trendy Mexico City, investigate the archaeological Mayan and Aztec treasures of Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Tenochtitlan, snorkel or dive the second largest coral reef in the world, or luxuriate in one of the country’s fine resorts. Whatever is calling you to Mexico, answer the call, and you will be rewarded!

Central America

From Nicaragua to Costa Rica to Panama and in between, the region of Central America is a region of fascinating heritage and awe-inspiring geographical wonders. Small in size but mighty in cultural flavor, this part of the world has a vibrant personality that brings the Frontiers team back time and time again. Tropical rainforests pair with extinct volcanoes, stunning coastlines, archaeological sites, and colorful towns. There are so many ways to explore: surf, hike, zip line, sunbathe, and much more!
