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
The Hacienda had a lovely atmosphere, very homely and real. Our leader Chris Kehoe was very knowledgeable, and experienced as a group leader. He was intelligent with an acerbic sense of humour and ran a tight and efficient ship.
I expected this trip to be very good and my expectations were surpassed ... My thanks to Naturetrek, in particular Paul and Chris for a trip of a lifetime.
A wonderful trip, one of the best we've ever done. I don't see how it can be improved. The crew of Search couldn't be more helpful and cheerful, every one of them. The leaders knowledgable, enthusiastic and hard-working. I would recommend this holiday to anyone.
