As a young backpacker with big ideas about seeing the Americas your way - you have just hit on the best way to do it!
Every year thousands of young people from all over the world find that our group backpacking holidays offer a safe and easy way to explore North & South America.
TrekAmerica is all about exploring the real Americas in an informal style - our itineraries are not completely rigid so if there is a chance to take a hidden back road or stop off at a local festival, then let's do it. With TrekAmerica you'll combine all the flexibility of independent travel with the cost savings and security of a group tour. With most people on our trips travelling alone and with 5 or 6 different nationalities on each trip, we guaranteed a diverse and fun group.
TRAVELLING ALONE? - COME JOIN US!
With North America being so vast, travelling solo in the states can be quite lonely, and it's the shared experiences and the laughs along the way that make travelling with TrekAmerica so enjoyable. Over half of our travellers join their trips alone, so you'll be travelling with people like yourself from all parts of the world, making a lot of new friends on the way and having a once in a lifetime experience.
DON'T BE A TOURIST - BE A TRAVELLER
Our adventure vehicles allow us to travel away from the tourist crowds and deep into the National Parks and wilderness areas that are often difficult, if not impossible to reach on your own. Travelling in smaller groups also makes it easy for us to be as flexible as we can. We at Trek know it's the smaller, local places that make the real American experience and these stops are quick easy and fun.
SIT BACK & LET US DO THE WORK
When you travel with TrekAmerica, your tour leader handles all the driving and organises all the day to day activities as well as negotiating group rates wherever he or she can making it cheaper for you. Our leaders are selected for their personality, confidence and energy and their enthusiasm for leading tours and a genuine love of the outdoors brings them back to work for us year after year. We just don't claim to have the best leaders in the business, we know we do!
