Extend Your Stay in North America

Set at a more leisurely pace, these holidays are perfect to add to the end of your journey, but can also be arranged as an independent adventure. You’ll spy grizzlies foraging, watch the northern lights ripple overhead or follow the paw prints of polar bears, all the while staying in remote wilderness lodges, many only reachable by float plane. It’s time to let the real adventure begin.

Contact us at APT on 1300 656 985 to add these extensions to your North American Adventure.
