National Parks & Scenic Driving Tours

For over thirty years we’ve been offering North American self drive tours which encompass the great outdoors and below you will see a selection of these, plus a couple of ideas for South America. Each can be tailor made to fit your interests; budget and the time you have available. The majority of these we have experienced ourselves, so feel free to call and chat over them.

Here are a few ideas-

Alaska & Yukon

Canadian Rockies

Canyonlands of Arizona, Utah and Nevada

The Galapagos Islands


New England

The Pacific Northwest – Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island

South America- Iguassu; Peru and Bolivia

Virginia- Shenandoah National Park & Colonial Williamsburg

Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks

Yosemite National Park & Pacific Coast Highway


Australia & New Zealand, despite the bush fires- Jan 13

Just to say that we got back safely from Australia/NZ a couple of hours ago, after a wonderful holiday. Everything went exactly according to plan, which given that we had 10 flights, 11 different accommodations and 3 separate car hires is saying something! Thank you once again for all your help in organising it for us. Best regards Kevin & Jenny

Ash clouds, Bariloche Airport closures- Jan 12

We had clients on a remote and wild walking holiday, visiting Torres del Paine National Park and other parts of Patagonia and the Chilean Lake District. Their exit airport was Bariloche, which had closed due to volcanic ash and a refurbishment that seemed to be without an end. There were over half a dozen changes and re-issues required with services in total flux, they having been routed to both Neuquen and Esquel at differing times. We were sporadically in contact with the clients, reissuing their tickets, keeping them informing of the numerous alterations and advising on how to get to the new departure airports.

The trip was excellent and all the flights worked well. Thanks for all your help. It will likely be New Zealand or Tasmania next year. Best wishes Nigel. 

Earthquake Christchurch, New Zealand – Feb 11

We had clients on a campervan tour of New Zealand, who were due to drop the van off at a depot in Christchurch, but fortunately they were a day away when the quake hit. We were able to liaise with the depot and also advise the client on this and the airport’s temporary closure.

Thanks for all your help – it is great that you have kept an eye on things during the night shift. Thinks getting back to normal here now- so we can get internet access, etc and there’s more info about roads being open or closed etc. We are now only an hour from the Kea office and it looks like pretty certain our flights will be OK. Thanks again – and yes, the holiday has been absolutely fantastic. Best regards Sue and Tim 

New Zealand- May 08

We had a superb time in Hong Kong and New Zealand, everything you organised worked like a dream. Thank you so very much. We thought it would be a once-in-a-lifetime trip, but now we want to go back. We can highly recommend Blanket Bay and Kauri Cliffs-they were amazing! Best wishes Helen and James
