Northern Trail from Los Angeles

Incredible Adventure I'll never forget

Reviewed May 2017

It has been a few weeks since I arrived home from my 3rd Trek and I have to say it was my favorite. Don our leader was just incredible nothing was too much effort and he went out of his way to make it enjoyable. I managed to tick a number of things off my bucket list which I didn't think i'd be able to do. The first; being surrounded by snow in America and secondly staying in log cabins. We were given the option of upgrading on a number of the nights and we jumped at the chance as it was freezing. The places you visit on this Trek are just breathtaking. The first highlight (2nd day in) was the sunset cruise in San Francisco that will stay with me for a while just breathtaking. Even though it was hard hiking to Upper Yosemite Falls is a must the views make it worth it.. you feel on top of the world. I will also never forget hiking in the snow in Grand Teton National Park there are too many to mention I will be here all day! That is what I love about Trek... you do things you would never dream of doing. Like I said this is my third trek and the things I have learnt about myself and the confidence I have got from going with Trek America is incredible I have to thank them. If you are not sure whether to book a trek please just book it... you will not regret it. After finishing this review I am about to start researching my 4th!

This was the best thing I have ever done! It was the end of my Au Pair year and I am so glad that I spent my money for that.
We had an amazing tourleader (the best ever!!) and the people, who traveled with me, were just great. We are still in contact.
I can't say something negative because there isn't anything. Even the camping was so much fun. Every night you have a campfire and you sit together, this is how you learn to know your group.

The Northern Trail was my second trip and it was just as enjoyable as my first.

Northern trail covers the Pacific Coast highway, followed by the first city stop in San Francisco. Followed by San Francisco is Lake Tahoe and Yellowstone National Park - both amazing! Either side of Yellowstone you have cowboy country stops in Jackson, Wyoming and Cody, Wyoming. Both fun stops, horse riding, white water rafting in real cowboy country. The tour finishes with Mount Rushmore, Chicago, Cedar Point theme park with the last night of the tour spent beside Niagara Falls.

Amazing variety of sites but not enough time.

Had the most amazing time on this trip and there was so much to see but because of the length of the trip and the distance covered a lot of the days were filled with driving but our tour leader did a good job of breaking up the trip with some interesting sites that wouldn't be on a normal trail or somewhere you would think of going yourself.
Just wish we had more time.

Great fun but rushed!

Loved this trek! It's really appealed to me because of all the stops along the way. Highlights were San Francisco and Yosemite National Park. I loved Chicago too but there just wasn't enough time to see much of it as you only really get 1 day there. I guess that it the big flaw in the trek, there isn't much time spent in places. For example there was things to do on the Ohio stop but by the time we had driven all the way there it was too late to do any of it as things were closing. Not great. Our driver was great and even though it was her first time doing the Northern Trail it was still amazing. Made friends for life on this trip and have some fantastic memories.

Una buona panoramica del paese

I parchi nazionali sono fantastici e anche badlands e il south dakota sono molto interessanti a parte un paio di giorni un po' noiosi nel nulla, anche se la pianura è molto bella, il resto è tutto interessante. Le black hills hanno qualcosa di speciale...
