Below are some of TrekAmerica's most popular gap year travel USA options:
- Southern Sun: Eastern energy, slow-paced Deep South, laid-back West Coast (21 days) The Southern Sun slots in extremely well as a leg of a round the world trip whichever way you're travelling - and at just 3 weeks in length, it's an extremely cost-effective option for travelling across the States! Combine eastern energy with the slower pace of the Deep South and the laid-back West Coast, on a tour that's been TrekAmerica's most popular for over 37 years.
- Trailblazer: Two months dedicated to all things stateside! (64 days) The Trailblazer is so extensive and packed full of experiences that it feels like a gap year even though it is only 64 days long! The most extensive tour offered by any American tour operator, this epic journey starts and ends in either New York or Los Angeles, after crossing 33 US states, the Canadian and Mexican borders plus a series of major cities from Las Vegas to Chicago, and spectacular national parks including Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon.
The Grand Trek:
America to its fullest! (42 days)
From mountains to beaches, from the top of skyscrapers to the bottom of canyons, this tour highlights the best of America. Circumnavigating the continental United States, this tour spends three weeks travelling coast to coast through the southern states, then traverses back with three weeks in the north. Covering 26 states in total, it's the perfect option for anyone wanting to experience the best of the USA.
