When, in 1872, the US established Yellowstone, its first national park it signalled the start of something truly special.

The US knows how to do wilderness.

Wedged between the two great oceans of the world, it is home to practically every landscape under the sun.

Beaches, lakes, mountains, rainforest, deserts, canyons and glaciers all rise and fall across this continent-sized country.

The country’s national parks – along with a multitude of other protected areas – make the US an adventurer’s dream and one of the world’s best countries for hiking.
