From Canada to California and Yakima to the Yukon, Globus and Cosmos have unveiled a new series of ‘Undiscovered’ holidays in North America.

Each of the nine itineraries featured as part of this series of tours offers outdoor-seekers opportunities to wrap themselves in the wilderness, nestle in the comfort of nature, find wonder in North America’s beauty and let the wind whip through their souls, enlivening their spirit for travel.
