North America Tours & Adventures

Guided backpacker experiences in North America

Backpacker tours in North America are hugely popular, and it’s not difficult to see why – when the two main countries included in tours are the United States of America and Canada, you’re not exactly going to struggle to find people willing to go.

Although getting around North America independently is generally quite straightforward, even if you’re a newbie traveller, there are numerous reasons to consider taking a tour instead. Being on a tour gives you a fixed itinerary that guarantees you’ll see all the highlights and not miss any of the best bits – there’s no opportunity to take a wrong turn, run out of petrol, or simply underestimate how long it can take to get from one place to another on this vast continent. Everything you need, including accommodation and transport, is taken care of for you. Plus you’ll get to see everything alongside like-minded people and create amazing memories with new friends.

Advice and inspiration for travelling in North America


Touring North America

Backpacker tours of North America come in all shapes and sizes. You might keep it simple and take a short city tour of iconic metropolises like New York, Las Vegas, or Toronto. Or you might road trip through California, or right across the whole USA via legendary Route 66. The really adventurous can delve into the continent’s awe-inspiring natural assets by exploring the continent’s numerous national parks, including Yosemite, Banff, Yellowstone, and Jasper (here be glaciers).  If you have the time, you could top it all off by heading south of the border into Mexico, to party hard in the city or relax on the beach (or a little bit of both).

That’s just covering the mainland, of course. If you’re really in search of paradise, you can find a tour that’ll take you hopping between Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago, and more. And for something completely different, there’s Cuba waiting just off the Florida coast.

The point is, you’ve got a lot of great options. Finding the right tour for you ensures you see as much of the continent as you want with none of the stress of making it happen. You can thank us later.
