We are actively monitoring the discussions in Congress over federal funding, and the potential impact on our tours visiting Federal Sites & National Parks across the United States.

Without an agreement between the House, Senate and White House, the government will shut down on Saturday September 30, 2023 at midnight. The impact to our Tours will be limited to those visiting some Federal Sites & National Parks across the country. Some states including Utah, Arizona and Colorado have indicated that they will provide the necessary funding to keep the National Parks operating. Other states are considering similar measures.

If we are unable to operate or your tour is altered due to the government shutdown, we will contact you directly prior to departure.

From the migratory birds in the tidal marshes of Low Country to the black and brown bears that call Denali National Park home, there are a number of animals you may come across on one of our tours across North America. In honour of the National Wildlife Federation’s annual Wildlife Week, we caught up with some of our Tour Managers (and the Camera Rolls on their phones) to see what creatures they’ve seen on tour.

Here are a few of our favourite pics that our TMs snapped of animals they have seen while on the road:

Did you know female moose, called cow moose, do not grow antlers?

American Bison in Custer State Park

The American bison was named the national mammal of the U.S. in 2016. It’s the first national mammal in U.S. history and joined the bald eagle as a national symbol!
