CENTENARY: 100 days in US national parks

THE US National Parks Service turns 100 next year and Globus is celebrating the milestone with a 100-day tour of America's greatest national parks.

From Hawaii to Maine, the tour visits 34 national parks, national monuments and historic sites.

Starting July 7 next year, travellers will cross 24 states and six time zones, linking world-famous parks such as Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon and natural wonders such as the glaciers of Alaska, the peaks of the Rocky Mountains and the desert formations of Monument Valley.

Highlights of the tour include the islands of Hawaii, a seven-night Alaskan cruise, the canyons and desert parks of the south-west, wine regions in California and Washington, New England parks in the north-east and the bright lights of New York, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

The tour, titled Centennial Celebration: 100 Days of GoParks, is priced from $41,482 per person, twin-share, starting in Honolulu and ending in Las Vegas.

The commemorative tour has been created under the Globus GoParks scheme in which Globus makes a contribution to the US National Park Foundation for every guest aboard its GoParks tours, helping to preserve parks for future generations.

The Globus GoParks partnership gives guests access to in-park accommodation and other exclusive experiences in some of the most celebrated national parks in the US.

There are other GoParks tours available from Globus.
