Just got back from the Western Dream, I did a lot of research into what to expect and looked forward to this trip for over a year, I had high expectations. They were exceeded at every level! Tim our tour guide was fantastic, great taste in music and all :) I had a fantastic time, the hikes were amazing, the camping was spectacular and the whole experience was more than I expected. Tim's knowledge of and passion for the local geology and environment added a lot to the experience a genuinely nice guy who bent over backwards to make it a great trip, when a trip opens with the Grand Canyon its a hard ask to top it each day but this one did and then some. Anyone with a bit of get up and go in them not wanting to be pampered but actually get out and see the fantastic national parks the US has to offer should do one of these tours, I will certainly be back for more.

just returned from walking Canadian Maritimes. Beautiful place , scenery stunning. Walks were easy for a reasonably fit person.
Fantastic personalities in the group which helped to make it a really enjoyable holiday. We have used GAA a number of times and have never been disappointed.

A fabulous experience of hiking through the Canadian Rockies. Tougher than I first imagined but with brilliant Guides, David and Marina, who encouraged us, taught us and kept us safe, we had an incredible two weeks. Spectacular views in the Great Wide Open. Met some new friends. Food was delicious also. Far exceeded my expectation. Absolutely loved it. Would do it all again. Thank you so much.

Stride Review

Grand America Adventures is the sister company to Trek America, founded in 1972. With trips of all styles, all incorporating an element of active adventure, Grand American Adventures is one of the most comprehensive ways to travel the Americas.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Offering the widest range of small group tours in North, Central, and South America, Grand American Adventures is a leader in active adventure tourism. What makes them stand out is their attention to providing travelers with a, not purely adventure activity focused. They are all about presenting travelers with a well rounded experience, so your trip will be not just about adventure activities, but also the history, culture, and lifestyle of your destination.

Who Travels With Them?

Active travelers who are interested in having an adventurous journey but also want to experience the culture of their destination. Their several trip types are geared towards adults between the ages of 25 to 55. Families with children 8 and up are welcome and older travelers are welcome if they are physically fit. Many trips have a camping component so be prepared for that!

Where Do They Operate?

Grand American Adventures focuses on the Americas, operating tours throughout North, Central, and South America.  

Why Travel With Them?

With a maximum group size of 13 people on most of their tours, a guarantee of no single supplements, and highly trained, engaging tour leaders this is the perfect choice for travelers seeking an all encompassing journey. They have over 60 carefully crafted itineraries, allowing you to find the perfect tour for your interests and desired activity level. Their tours aim to encompass everything that makes your destination special from visiting the  most exciting sights and highlights, to off-the-beaten-path locations.

From Grand American Adventures

Grand American Adventures specialises in tours to the Americas, with unrivalled knowledge and experience we are committed to bringing you the finest small group adventures available. No other region on earth offers the diversity you'll discover in the Americas; spectacular natural sights, challenging and rewarding activities and encounters with some of the world's most colourful cultures and wildlife. The possibilities are endless.

Destination Specialists

We offer the widest range of small group tours in North America, along with adventures through Central and South America. With more than 60 exciting itineraries, you can experience epic journeys through the national parks of the west and northwest, celebrate the musical and historical regions of the south, delve into cowboy life on a traditional ranch stay, walk in the Canadian Rockies or raft the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.

Small groups

With a maximum group size of just 13 on most tours, it feels more like travelling with friends than being on an organised tour. Our groups are made up of singles, couples and friends from all around the world. You'll meet like-minded people where everyone is guaranteed to share a passion for travel and discovery, and a small group will allow you to get further off the tourist trails for a more intimate experience.

Highly trained & experienced tour leaders

Our Tour Leaders are chosen for their professionalism, unbridled passion to explore and a desire to share in the experience. They have hiked hundreds of miles of national park trails, slept under the stars and done almost every activity there is, and are keen to introduce you to the places that they call home. Our Tour Leaders will get you from A to B, organise activities and no doubt show you secret spots along the way. Ultimately they are there to make sure you get the most out of your adventure

Tours to suit you

Most of our tours include a mix of activities, culture, wildlife and sightseeing, so you get a little bit of everything, but we also offer a range of dedicated tours for those who want to focus on a particular activity. Specialist tour types include walking, family discovery, wildlife, rail journeys and rafting. You can also choose the comfort level for you, so it's up to you whether you'd prefer to camp in the great outdoors or sleep with a roof over your head.

Small groups of like-minded travellers

We offer small group tours, made up of singles, couples and friends from all around the world. With a maximum group size of just 13 on most tours it feels more like travelling with friends than being on an organised tour. You'll meet like-minded people where everyone is guaranteed to share a passion for travel and discovery, and a small group will allow you to get further off the tourist trails for a more intimate experience.

Our tours are aimed at people of all ages, although most of our travellers are aged between 25 and 55, but with previous travellers aged from eight to eighty, we believe that age is most definitely just a number. We also offer dedicated tours for families with children aged 8+.

No Single Supplements

You won't pay a single supplement when you travel with us as a solo traveller; you'll share a room or tent with a fellow group member of the same gender. If you'd prefer your own space you can choose our Optional Solo Sleeper and pay a little extra to have a room or tent to yourself.

A choice of accommodation

You can choose from comfortable hotel based tours where you'll stay in a range of hotels, lodges or cabins, or go for the real outdoors experience and choose from our range of classic camping tours.

Whatever trip type you choose all your accommodation and transport is included in the price of your tour. On camping trips we also include all meals whilst camping in the price of your tour, so you can eat healthily as a group at no extra cost, making it easy to budget for your trip. For nights spent in hotels, and on hotel based tours, you'll pay for meals as you go along and get the chance to sample local cuisine from Creole and Cajun to local fresh fish and seafood. We've listed any included meals on the individual tour pages.
