NO ONE HELPS YOU LIKE A TRAVEL AGENT!
There’s no better way to take in all the majesty of the National Parks than going at it on foot.
There’s nowhere else you’ll see sights like Half Dome and El Capitan.
Be sure to take in the waterworld of jaw-dropping waterfalls and historic geysers.
Wildlife Spotting Tours
When you want to get up close (but not too close!) and personal with the animals, this is the way to go.
Take a guided tour through the most famous forests on the planet.
After you’re done exploring the parks themselves, stop by a museum to learn the history behind all of the land!
It’s said that visiting Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming is like stepping into another world. As the country’s first national park, it offers truly unique experiences like spectacular hiking trails, beautiful views, Old Faithful, and geysers shooting water 100 feet into the air.
Spanning almost 3,500 miles, and extending into parts of Montana and Idaho, makes it one of the largest national parks in the US.
Not only are their beautiful sights to behold that only nature could create, but there’s also an abundance of wildlife and 50 percent of the world’s hydrothermal features, which creates an effect that makes the ground appear to be on fire.
Popular activities that Sunset Travel can arrange include:
America’s most visited national park, Great Smoky Mountains – located in North Carolina and Tennessee – is an ideal getaway to one of America’s oldest mountain ranges.
There are waterfalls throughout the park that draw in over 200,000 visitors per year alone.
If you’re looking for convenience, the park is in close proximity to exciting U.S. cities like Gatlinburg and Nashville in Tennessee.
Add in nearly 80 historic buildings, spectacular displays of wildflowers, and abundant wildlife, and it’s safe to say that Great Smoky Mountains National Park offers activities that everyone can enjoy.
Sunset Travel can get you the ideal itinerary, one that includes the popular activities below – many of which are free:
Located in central California, Yosemite National Park was established in 1890 and boasts some of the best views, hiking trails, and family vacation opportunities in the country – drawing more than four million annual visitors.
The park is roughly the size of Rhode Island, and almost 95 percent of the 747,956 acres is classified as wilderness.
The Valley is a seven-mile wide canyon with awe-inspiring rock formations, including El Capitan, the world’s tallest granite monolith, which has become one of the world’s top rock climbing destinations.
Yosemite Falls is the largest waterfall in North America, and the park is also known for its Giant Sequoia trees, which are estimated to be over 3,000 years old.
Yosemite is our nation’s first land dedicated to recreation and enjoyment, and there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy this pristine land.
Popular activities in Yosemite National Park include:
Covering nearly one million acres, Washington State’s Olympic National Park is ideal for those looking to get up close and personal with nature.
It provides three distinct ecosystems – glaciated mountains, rugged Pacific coastline, and lush temperate forests. With 95% of the park designated wilderness, it gives visitors the opportunity to experience remoteness and pristine nature in a way that few other places can.
There’s a 73-mile long coastline with rocky headlands, sandy beaches, and thriving tidepools. Add in giant spruce trees that are centuries old, towering mountain ranges, and ecosystems that are home to see sea otters, whales, beavers, bears, rhinoceros auklets, golden eagles, and more.
What you’ll find in Olympic National Park is something you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
Popular activities in Yosemite National Park include:
Colorado has more national parks than just about any other state, and one of the most popular – and stunning – is Rocky Mountain National Park.
Located in northern Colorado just outside the popular tourist town of Estes Park, it’s one of the highest-altitude national parks and home to 60 different peaks.
It’s a great family vacation destination, offering outdoor experiences for everyone – from easy nature hikes around the clear mountain lakes and camping, to scrambles up the rocks of waterfalls and mountains.
