There are places every traveler has on their bucket list - Paris or Fiji, perhaps, or a weekend in Las Vegas - but sometimes it feels good to get off the beaten path and visit someplace more remote. If you’re interested in a unique holiday where you can really explore, consider these spectacular North American destinations.
Denali National Park, Alaska
Mountains, rivers, glaciers - the Denali Wilderness is a breathtaking natural landscape in Alaska. Visitors can enjoy a day hike, take a dog sled out onto the snowy tundra or even take a helicopter ride over the park. Camping options are available, or stay in a local bed and breakfast just outside the park. This incredible location is perfect for photographers or nature enthusiasts looking to spot some caribou or moose. (Just watch out for bears.)
Nearest airport: Fly into Anchorage and then board a floatplane for an amazing adventure!
Haida Gwaii, BC
This revered archipelago in BC is unlike any other place in Canada. This magical landscape is full of ancient village sites and lush rainforest, making visitors feel like they’re in another world. It’s the perfect place for hiking, fishing, kayaking, cycling and other outdoor activities. There are beautiful accommodations to choose from and an abundance of fresh seafood served in charming local restaurants. A part of the Haida Nation, this spectacular destination makes for an unforgettable trip.
Nearest airport: Fly into Prince Rupert, Masset or Sandspit BC.
Hoh Rainforest, Washington
Interested in exploring an incredible rainforest without leaving the U.S.? Consider a trip to Washington State. Unlike the Denali Wilderness, the Hoh Rainforest in the Olympic National Park is not so far off the beaten path - but you’ll feel like you’ve traveled somewhere otherworldly. Take in the mountain views, look for wildlife, go fishing, hike along creeks and visit tide pools along the beach. There’s so much to do and see, and you’re only a few hours away from Vancouver or Seattle.
Nearest airport: The Port Angeles, WA/ Fairchild Intl Airport is the nearest airport capable of handling all types of aircraft, just under 2 hours from the visitor center.
Fogo Island, Newfoundland
Fogo Island is undeniably special. There are fantastic hiking trails here, but the views are spectacular anywhere on the island. Fogo Island is easily accessible and makes for an amazing, relaxing East Coast getaway. It’s home to one of the most unique luxury accommodations in Canada as well as some great restaurants, historical sites and art galleries. Wander through the charming town or take a walk down to the shore to see some icebergs passing by. Go whale watching or look for wildlife on a guided tour. Community is important here, and if you’re lucky, you’ll be invited to a bonfire. Enjoy!
