BACKPACKING THROUGH
USA & CANADA

usa-canada-0186amer2015a
What better time to backpack through the USA & Canada than right now when you’re young and free to explore. There is a lot of ground to cover when backpacking Canada and backpacking the USA, so we’ve made it easy by listing the top 35 things you need to do in the USA & Canada before you turn 35. Top of the list for the nature seekers is hitting up some of the amazing national parks (perhaps some bear spotting in Yellowstone), or for the foodies amongst us nothing beats a deep-dish pizza in Chicago. What makes backpacking around America so great is that you can experience the cities and natural wonders made famous in the movies and TV shows we grew up with.

No matter your backpacking USA budget, there’s a Contiki USA tour is for you. We’ve got your transport, accommodation, some food and experiences covered, plus a tour manager on hand to give you local insights to maximise your experience. One of our most popular backpacking USA routes is our Grand 
Southern Tour; starting in Los Angeles, then heading through the south to Miami and then up to New York, this ultimate tour ticks off all the sites; from the rock and roll scene in Memphis with a visit to Graceland to the natural wonders of the Grand Canyon.

If Canada is on your backpacking north America wish list then there are two main tours you can choose to do with Contiki; our Canada & the Rockies tour, or our Grand Canadian tour. Our Canada itineraries cover the east and west; cities include Vancouver, Whistler, Jasper, Banff, Toronto & Montreal. The landscape, mountains, and lakes are truly breathtaking and backpacking through Canada must include these top 5 destinations.

So if you’re an adventure seeking, foodie loving traveller then grab your American backpack and head to the USA and Canada today.
