Northern Trail from New York

amazing, trip of a lifetime

Reviewed November 2012

This was an amazing trek. Our group gelled right from the start. The first day was Niagra Falls which did not fail to amaze. Loved the camping. there was such a sense of fun and friendship on the trek. Our tour leader went out of his way to make sure we seen the best each area had to offer, from the Spam museum to the Jolly Green giant. Chicago was excellent. We did a bike tour which made me laugh so much!! All in all, there was never a boring day. Even on the long journeys on the bus we watched movies, played cards and talked and slept.

This trek was my 3rd trek. I loved the variety of big cities like Chicago and the beautiful national parks. You really get to see changes when driving for many many hours in the van. From absolutely barren prairies to green and lush national parks with mountains.
This trip is according to our trek leader the tour where you have to drive the longest and some of the days are looooooong! But it's okay when you see all the amazing thing :)

Trip of a lifetime!

My fiancee and I went on the Northern Trail trek from New York. We arrived 3 days early so we could spend some time in NY which is definitely worth it!

This trek was amazing and we got to see so many things! Niagara Falls was spectacular - The Maid of the Mist cruise is fantastic. Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse are also epic!

The camping is fun - especially in some of the thunder storms they get over there! I recommend bringing a pillow for the van rides and camping to make your stay much more comfortable. Also bring something to entertain you in the van as this trek has some very long van rides of 9 hours in a day sometimes!

I chose this trek primarily for the visits to Yellowstone and Yosemite parks but you also get to see Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles - all of which are totally different from each other and have their own quirks. Keep a look out for bears in Yellowstone - they are fantastic to watch!

One of my favourite days was in Los Angeles, spending a few hours on Venice Beach. The waves are terrific and you'll have a great time!

I definitely recommend this trek, the long hours in the van are worth all of the amazing sites you'll see along the way. You'll cover 12,000 miles in the 21 days!
