North America, the continent that brings together Canada, the United States and Greenland. North America offers a thousand and one options for every type of traveler. Even though the United States is very western, there are huge differences with Europe† Everything and everything is big in the United States, the amount of food, the roads, the buildings. It is the land of unlimited possibilities with Route 66, The Big Apple, Thank God It's Friday, Yellowstone, Hollywood, Alaska, Hawaii, Disney, Memphis, The Rocky Mountains, Greyhounds, Seven Eleven, baseball, bears, TV, the Grand Canyon, Broadway, and McDonald's.

Canada

Whale watching, getting to know the Inuit lifestyle and doing cultural in Vancouver or Montreal for example. Canada is the largest country in North America and is the second largest country in the world. Canada is more European than the United States. Because it is fairly sparsely populated, you will still find many untouched nature reserves here.

The United States

North America is versatile and adventurous. Roadtrippend through the US on Route 66, a city trip along the Canadian metropolises of Vancouver and Montreal or a week of sun and sea on the hot Mexican coast: you will go home with a suitcase full of beautiful memories. Canada has beautiful nature in store for you and cities with a European atmosphere such as Vancouver and Montreal. The United States of course has an irresistible attraction in New York. But there are so many other beautiful cities: Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, New Orleans, Denver, just to name a few. All cities with their own character. And what about the beautiful nature reserves and National Parks, Route 66, the unbeatable Las Vegas, the world-famous beaches of Miami and LA! Enough choice for discerning travellers.

Greenland

Greenland, a country that you don't think of first when you hear or see North America. Greenland has rugged and imposing landscapes that range from rocky mountain ranges and giant icebergs to deep fjords and dry tundra. Other Greenland highlights include: Kulusuk 'The world's most unusual day trippers dream', dog sledding trips, swimming in hot springs with views of the drifting icebergs, traditional villages and Ilulissat, the world's most impressive glacier outside Antarctica.
