Wildlife Holidays in North & Central America
North America may lack the south’s faunal diversity, but it offers the comfort, security and sophistication that some travellers prefer, and some breathtaking scenery! From the prairies and the swamps of Florida to the frozen realm of the Polar Bear, Naturetrek’s North America holidays offer some impressive wildlife spectacles.
Our America specialist recommends...
I’d recommend ‘Trinidad & Tobago’. This tour starts with eight nights at the Asa Wright Centre where you can watch hummingbirds while sitting on the verandah, or visit the nearby Oilbird cave. This is followed by four nights on Tobago relaxing on idyllic beaches or (in April) watching Leatherback Turtles lay their eggs! - Paul Stanbury
What can I see in North America?
North America is rich in natural beauty and wildlife. From Canada’s snow-clad mountains, vast forests and mosaic of deep fjords to the legendary whale watching venues of the USA’s eastern seaboard, here are a few highlights of Naturetrek’s tours to the continent:
- Canada’s Grizzly Bears fishing for salmon in autumn & colours of the ‘fall’
- Pods of Orca off Vancouver Island
- Autumn migration of millions of warblers & waterbirds in the eastern United States
- Whale watching off Cape Cod
- Marine mammals & bird life in California’s Monterey Bay
Why choose North America?
As well as being home to some superb wildlife, North America offers grand-scale scenery, comfortable accommodation, and you won’t go hungry!

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT OUR N & C America HOLIDAYS
Our local guide was excellent, finding, calling and identifying birds and ensuring everyone saw them...very professional. The Canopy Tower staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. The group was a happy, friendly and sociable one.
Chris gave us a very well organised tour, he really knew his patch and made sure we all got the best out of the birds whatever our level of expertise. Santiago was a good driver and knew the birds, he and Chris made a good team. We saw a wide range of habitats and moved around Costa Rica, but never felt rushed…a great holiday. Thanks.
I would rate the trip as a memorable lifetime experience and would like to thank everyone who contributed to its organisation and planning.
