Everybody loves an adventure and there is no country greater for this than the United States of America. This is due to the incredibly varied and beautiful landscape which encompasses everything from sprawling desert to snowy mountains terrain. Although everybody loves adventure, not everybody likes the same type of excitement — this is why it is important to look at the different types of adventure holiday you can have before booking. Here are five of our favorite American adventure tours:
1. Classic Tours
A classic American adventure tour will provide you with an authentic road trip experience and show you the great beauty of the land. These tours, available from companies like Trek America, usually see you travel in small groups where you head off the beaten track, try a handful of fun activities and bond as a group.
2. Creature Comforts
Not everybody’s idea of an adventure involves getting their hands dirty. For those that want to experience an adventure in the heart of America, some tour organizers can arrange tours that provide all the home comforts that you need for an enjoyable yet exciting trip. This may include hotel accommodation each night in the centre of towns, meals at nice restaurants and more included activities.
3. Solo Travel
Traveling solo is a thrilling experience and one that changes many people for the better. You learn many important life skills along the way, step outside your comfort zone and you could make new friends for life.

4. Budget Adventure
As fun as adventures in the back of a van can be, they can also cost a fair sum. One fantastic type of trip that it ideal for those on a budget is to go on a tour that utilizes public transportation. In addition to saving money, these tours are also very immersive and allow you to see how the locals live. In most cases, this type of tour also provides individuals with a lot more independence to do what they want instead of pre-planned activities.
5. Winter Trips
When you think of an American adventure, it is understandable that you would think of hiking in the beautiful summer sun. As fantastic as this is, it is not the only way to see this country. America is transformed in the winter and many of the national parks, hiking trails and tourist spots are practically empty. This creates a magical atmosphere that is matched by the stunning landscape (be sure to pack your camera!).
America is a wonderful country for an adventure, but first, it is important that you find the right type of trip so that you get the most out of it.
