North America’s National Parks, Tauck Style
Finding A National Park

Ready to experience the parks? Which national park will you choose for your next travels? Read on, and discover what makes traveling with Tauck to North America’s national parks unique.

Acadia National ParkACADIA NATIONAL PARK

Romantic Gothic novels drum up vivid imagery of Acadia National Park as rockbound coast where lonely lighthouses cling to the shore and spruce forests tower silently over a windswept blue sea. And the reality is... not far off. In the 19th century, wealthy industrialists built summer “cottages” on beautiful Mount Desert Island as they did throughout all of New England’s coastal playgrounds. Thanks to the vision and efforts of two private citizens, George B. Dorr and Charles W. Eliot, to protect and preserve the island, Lafayette National Park was designated in 1919 as the first national park east of the Mississippi River (with a name change in 1929 to Acadia National Park, but that’s another story). One of the park’s greatest friends was John D. Rockefeller Jr., who donated 10,000 acres of parkland. In 1913, automobiles were here to stay – and Rockefeller was so alarmed by the possibility of automobiles taking over his beloved park that he financed and directed the construction of broken-stone carriage roads, winding through the park’s interior, to limit them.

Tauck Journeys and Acadia National Park Highlights:

Grand New England – Explore the park’s historic carriage roads by horse-drawn carriage; the pathways wind through the heart of the park – no cars – and are picture-perfect with stone bridges, woodlands, streams, and of course the famed wild blueberries.

 

Arches National ParkARCHES NATIONAL PARK

You can look at countless photographs of the 2,000+ natural arches that bridge the landscapes just outside of Moab, Utah, in Arches National Park – or replay scenes from The Greatest Story Ever Told and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – but nothing quite prepares you for the real deal. The startling beauty of the surreal shapes you’ll encounter here have rendered even the most seasoned traveler speechless, freezing time and thought, to make the impossible, impossibly real. To see Delicate Arch, balanced over the landscape 65 feet high, during dawn or dusk, is to “experience a kinship that is unique in the world.” When discussing Arches National Park, filmmaker Ken Burns says, “You begin to realize the importance of light in this spectacular museum of patient erosion.”

Tauck Journeys and Arches National Park Highlights:

Spirit of the Desert: The National Parks of the Southwest – Amble in awe with Tauck’s Dawn Patrol or Sunset Scouts as you view formations, dating back 65 million years, like 150-foot-tall Dark Angel, standing freely at the end of Devil’s Garden Trail; Balancing Rock, the size of three school buses; Landscape Arch, spanning 290 feet; and Double Arch, bathed in ever-changing colors as the sun moves through the sky.


Banff National ParkBANFF NATIONAL PARK

Banff National Park was the birthplace of the Canadian national park system – it is the oldest Canadian park, established in 1885. The wild natural beauty of the park is well known the world over, and the town of Banff has emerged as “mountain chic” with good restaurants and fine art galleries. But what you might not know is that within Banff resides The Banff Centre, Canada's arts and cultural organization that provides multidisciplinary programming and advancing the work of artists from many different cultural disciplines. Banff is home to several national historic sites that illustrate the rich history of early explorers, the opening up of the Canadian Rockies by the railroads, and the story of the Nakoda of Banff and Western Canada. And when it comes to natural beauty, the park is unsurpassed… picture-postcard perfect with lush forests, turquoise lakes, glacier-carved valleys and the most amazing mountains.

Tauck Journeys and Banff National Park Highlights:

Grand Canadian Rockies – You’ll have an insider talk with a Parks Canada official, enjoy a Bow River rafting trip, and stay at Fairmont Banff Springs and Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in the heart of Banff.

Best of the Canadian Rockies – A week of wonders within Banff and Jasper national parks includes scenic sightseeing by helicopter near the Three Sisters Peaks; a visit with a naturalist guide to beautiful Moraine Lake followed by a tour of Lake Louise, a private reception at The Banff Centre and more.

Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park – Enjoy a day as you please during a two-night stay at the magnificent Fairmont Banff Springs.

 

Bryce Canyon National ParkBRYCE CANYON NATIONAL PARK

Bryce Canyon is proof positive that Mother Nature is the world’s greatest sculptor of all time. First she chose her material wisely – sandstone in every shade of pink, orange, and red imaginable, with a bit of purple thrown in for good measure. Then she scooped out the canyon, creating an amphitheatre filled with a cast of characters in weird and wonderful shapes, towering and twisted, each with a quirky personality of its own, each uniquely beautiful or funny – or both. She arranged these “hoodoos” – named for their magical aura – in a maze to confound even the best sense of direction, so that when you walk among them you really feel transported into a different world with different rules. You end up unexpectedly in little caves, come suddenly upon fairy tale castles, and feel like you’re surrounded by fantastical near-humans whose colors shift with the play of sunlight. Bryce seems straight out of science fiction, but it’s even harder to believe.

Tauck Journeys and Bryce Canyon National Park Highlights:

Red Rocks & Painted Canyons – Guests on our Tauck Bridges family adventure saddle up for a ride with an insider who knows the canyon like the back of his hand. It’s a great way to get a different view of Mother Nature’s masterpiece.

America’s Canyonlands – In addition to guided daytime walks throughout the pink and orange landscapes there’s star gazing at night – there is virtually no ambient light in the canyon, so planets, stars and constellations shine bright and clear.

Spirit of the Desert: The National Parks of the Southwest – Guided walks include a Dawn Patrol takes you along the rim of Bryce Canyon to catch the shocking array of colors illuminated by the first rays of light on the hoodoos below.


Cape Breton Highlands National ParkCAPE BRETON HIGHLANDS
NATIONAL PARK

Cape Breton Island, “Isle Royale” blends Acadian and Gaelic traditions. Natural wonders and cultural treasures, wild and rugged – that’s what awaits on a visit to Cape Breton Highlands National Park. In the words of Parks Canada, the park is “One of Canada’s most enchanting places, where the mountains meet the sea. As you hug the world-famous Cabot Trail coastline you'll wind through the park, where lush, forested river canyons carve into the ancient plateau, edged by rust-colored cliffs.” Beaches… unique wildlife… human history dating back 10,000 years… plant species found nowhere else in Canada… dramatic cliffs and tranquil seas…all this and more make Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia a must-visit experience.

Tauck Journeys and Cape Breton Island National Park Highlights:

Canadian Maritimes – Drive along the Cabot Trail, a spectacular 180-mile serpentine highway that hugs the tip of the island, decked out with sweeping turns and jagged cliffs – one of the world’s most exciting and scenic drives; visit Chéticamp, a fishing community; enjoy a unique Cape Breton tradition, a “kitchen party” featuring local cuisine, regional spirits and Celtic music.

 

Denali National ParkDENALI NATIONAL PARK

Denali means “Great One” in an Athabascan language, and that’s what the locals call the crowning jewel of this six million-acre wilderness in Alaska. Others call the massive peak Mt. Denali, but whichever name you prefer, it’s definitely as great as they come – the tallest mountain in North America, the third highest in the world, and an irresistible temptation for climbers everywhere. The park spreads out around the mountain, ever present, ever mysterious, and mesmerizing. Grizzly bears, wolves, caribou and moose inhabit the park – and tinier creatures such as the wood frog, who freezes solid during the harsh winter months – heart and breathing stop. Amazingly, when spring arrives, the little creature thaws… and hops away unharmed!

Tauck Journeys and Denali National Park Highlights:

Grand Alaska – Drive deep inside Denali in search of wildlife such as moose, caribou, Dall Sheep, Wolves and grizzly bears; guides have spotting scopes that pull wildlife up close.

Wild Alaska – Go flightseeing by private charter inside dramatic, ice-capped Denali National Park – weather permitting, your ski plane may touch down on a glacier.

 

Glacier National ParkGLACIER NATIONAL PARK

The “Switzerland of North America”… Glacier National Park (Dayton Duncan’s favorite park) in northernmost Montana is the remote wilderness paradise filled with alpine lakes, wildflower meadows, and rugged snow-frosted mountains that instantly make you think of Switzerland. The park is a haven for those seeking inspiration and solitude. The US and Canada united Glacier National Park with its Canadian neighbor, Waterton Lakes National Park, as the world’s first International Peace Park – a celebration of the strong relationship between the two countries.

Tauck Journeys and Glacier National Park Highlights:

Canadian Rockies & Glacier National Park – Travel the famed “Going to the Sun” road aboard a “Jammer,” one of the bright red updated vintage touring buses from the 1930s, and take a private cruise on pristine Swiftcurrent Lake, the crystal clear jewel of the Many Glacier Valley and Josephine Lake, dramatically surrounded by Mount Gould, Allen Mountain, and Grinnell Point.

 

Grand Canyon National ParkGRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK

The Grand Canyon can stop you in your tracks... and not just at its rim, either. First of all, it’s huge – really huge – and can be so overwhelming in scope that it defies description. Carved out of the colorful sandstone of the Colorado Plateau in Arizona over millions of years by the Colorado River and more than a mile deep, this yawning fissure reveals layer after layer of two billion years of Earth’s geologic history... like a vast, amazing book. Although we might take this “Wonder of the World” for granted today, the truth is that attempts to establish the Grand Canyon as our second national park were fought by commercial interests for decades... until President Theodore Roosevelt visited in 1903 and became involved in the tireless campaign to establish it as a national park… a wish that finally came true in 1919. Today, the park is visited yearly by nearly 5 million people.

Tauck Journeys and Grand Canyon National Park Highlights:

America’s Canyonlands – Learn about the canyon’s history and ecology during a special program by a local geologist who shares expert insights; sunrise or sunset from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is unforgettable – and the best views are close to your Tauck lodgings right on the canyon’s rim.

Spirit of the Desert: The National Parks of the Southwest – Stay overnight on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon – fewer than 10% of Canyon visitors go there. Go “inside” the national park system during a talk by a park insider, and see magnificent sunrises on Dawn Patrols.

Red Rocks & Painted Canyons – Family travelers stay right on the South Rim for amazing access sunrise and sunset… and take a guided walk along the rim with an instructor from the Grand Canyon Field Institute to learn about geology and wildlife.

 

Grand Teton National ParkGRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK

Six peaks over 12,000 feet – including Grand Teton, flanked by the Middle and South Tetons – as well as a handful of slightly shorter but no less impressive peaks, seem to rise impossibly out of the broad glacial valley known as Jackson Hole. There’s wildlife wherever you turn in the park – home to bear, bison, moose, gray wolves, pronghorn, coyote, and especially elk, of which there are literally thousands; they migrate right through Grand Teton on their way between Yellowstone and the National Elk Refuge. Even the little prairie dog is important here, due to its symbiotic relationship with larger mammals. As the National Park Service describes, “During summer, wildflowers paint meadows in vivid colors. Crystalline alpine lakes fill glacial cirques, and noisy streams cascade down rocky canyons to larger lakes at the foot of the range.”

Tauck Journeys and Grand Teton National Park Highlights:

Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks – An exclusive experience you’ll find only with Tauck – a private meeting with a resident artist from the National Park Service’s American Indian Artist-in-Residence Program, who shares stories and insights about the rich artistic and cultural legacy of tribal peoples of the American West; you’ll also raft the Snake River.

Legends of the American West – Go on a raft adventure along the Snake River. As an experienced rafter guides you downstream, keep your camera ready and eyes peeled for elk, deer and moose – and for what may be the greatest views of these mountains, period. You’ll also attend a private meeting with a resident artist from the American Indian Artist-in-Residence Program.

Yellowstone & the Tetons: American Safari – Visit the Snake River Ranch, a working cattle ranch; learn about life on the range during a horseback ride with ranch hands or aboard a horse-drawn wagon. Enjoy opportunities for bicycle riding and hiking; go on a guided whitewater rafting adventure along the Snake River.

Cowboy Country – Our family adventure includes a gentle morning flat trip on a stunning stretch of the Snake River; your guide shares the area’s history and geology and helps to spot wildlife such as river otters, birds of prey, elk and maybe even moose. Join a park insider for an exclusive look at the story of the park and efforts to preserve its diverse environment.

Wonderland: Yellowstone in Winter – Take a horse-drawn sleigh through National Elk Refuge, just outside of the national park, and learn about conservation efforts. Spend two nights in the town of Jackson and attend a reception and dinner at the National Museum of Wildlife Art.

 

Great Smoky Mountain National ParkGREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK

The Great Smoky Mountains are some of the oldest mountains in the world, with a story that began almost one billion years ago. They got their name from the dense thick fog that covers the mountains in the morning after it rains; the fog, or mist, casts a blueish-gray tint. The Cherokee called this Appalachian range Shaconage, or “place of the blue smoke.” To filmmakers Ken Burns and Dayton Duncan, it is the original frontier where westward expansion began, the place where early Scots-Irish settlers arrived in the 1700s and changed the cultural landscape of America forever, from bluegrass to bourbon. Great Smoky Mountain National Park is the most visited national park in America… and the park can’t be beat when it comes to interesting facts... it is also known as the “Salamander Capital of the World” with over 24 species.

Tauck Journeys and Great Smoky Mountain National Park Highlights:

Bluegrass & Blue Ridges: Louisville to Nashville – Hear the story of westward migration and experience wilderness life of the early 1800s at a recreation of an early pioneer settlement; gain insights into 11,000 years of Cherokee history and culture at the Museum of the Cherokee Indian.

 

Hawaii Volcanoes National ParkHAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK

One park, two live volcanoes… If you ever needed a reminder that our planet is constantly changing, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island of Hawaii would be a good one. With two active volcanoes here, eruption and lava flow can occur at any time, transforming the landscape in seconds. The evidence is everywhere – the ground littered with twisted lava, cinder cones, and open pits. It’s unearthly. Over hundreds of thousands of years, volcanoes have created what we know as the Hawaiian archipelago, and today Mauna Loa and Kilauea continue shaping the big island of Hawaii even as you’re reading this. UNESCO named this park an International Biosphere Reserve because of its outstanding scenic and scientific value – the diversity of ecosystems provide a habitat for native Hawaiian plants and animals.

Tauck Journeys and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Highlights:

The Best of Hawaii – On the Big Island of Hawaii, drive across the Kilauea Caldera, where views vary from desert to lush tropical rainforest to alpine tundra – and discover what life is like atop an active volcano.


Jasper National ParkJASPER NATIONAL PARK

Jasper National Park earns its moniker as Canada’s largest national park with endless vistas of wild beauty. From hotsprings to sparkling lakes, deep forests to the highest mountain in Alberta, the park is a visual feast. An abundance of wildlife draws visitors annually, highlighted by a rich caribou conservation program in the park. By the numbers… you’ll find over 300 species of birds, 53 different species of mammals, 20,000 types of insects and spiders, 40 types of fish… Jasper boasts three alpine ecoregions that produce a diversity of natural sights as well as four National Historic Sites that remind us all of the rich human history found within the park borders.

Tauck Journeys and Highlights:

Prince Edward Island National ParkPRINCE EDWARD ISLAND NATIONAL PARK

Red-sand beaches line the shores of Prince Edward Island National Park, along with wind-sculpted dunes, salt marshes and broad inlets that provide safe harbor for seabirds and seafarers. When you explore the park, you take note of its fragile ecosystem and gentle beauty. Fishing villages, iconic lighthouses and scenic views embody a way of life that has flourished on the island since 1790. Step back in time on a visit to Green Gables Heritage Place, the site of the home and farm that inspired Lucy Maud Montgomery’s literary masterpiece, Anne of Green Gables. Go inside “Anne’s” home and view rooms set up as they were described by the author and stroll the grounds to learn more about rural life in the early 20th century. Prince Edward Island Tourism notes “In 1998, six kilometres of the Greenwich Peninsula were added to the Park to protect unique dune formations, rare plants and animals, as well as archaeological findings dating back 10,000 years. The largest sand dunes on PEI tower above white-sand beaches to create a stunning backdrop for one of Atlantic Canada's top trail systems. The learning center’s floor model and multi-media theatre showcase how nature and 10,000 years of settlement have made Greenwich a must-see destination.

Tauck Journeys and Highlights:

Yellowstone National ParkYELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

There is nowhere on Earth like Yellowstone National Park. And because it is a natural treasure trove of geysers, fumeroles, mudpots, rivers, waterfalls, lakes, plains, mountains, forests and canyons, it was deemed by President Ulysses S. Grant that the whole world should see it. Forever. He signed into law an act of Congress establishing Yellowstone as a national park in 1872... creating not only America’s first national park, but the first park of its kind the world had ever seen. You may not realize this at first, but when you’re actually in Yellowstone you’re standing atop the largest “supervolcano” on the North American continent – one of the hottest spots on Earth. It’s called the Yellowstone Caldera, and it lurks beneath the surface, giving rise to half of the world’s geothermal features, including the famous “Old Faithful” Geyser and countless other geysers, fumaroles and hot springs that more than 3 million folks visit the park each year to see. The park is the largest and best-known “megafauna” (large animal) destination in the continental US, home to free-ranging wildlife like bison, moose, elk, grizzly bears, coyotes, bald eagles and gray wolves – re-introduced to the park just two decades ago in a successful effort to end their endangered status. The possibilities... are endless.

Tauck Journeys and Yellowstone National Park Highlights:

Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks – Guided sightseeing includes Yellowstone Lake, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Hayden Valley and the Upper Geyser Basin; spend one night at Lake Yellowstone and one night at the Old Faithful Inn.

Cowboy Country – Spend the day with an expert from The Institute of the Yellowstone Association learning about the park’s history and wildlife; picnic in the park; spend two nights at the Old Faithful Inn next to the famous geyser.

Yosemite National ParkYOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK

At Glacier Point, look out over Yosemite Valley and its vast granitescape – it’s like standing on the top of the world. You may feel humbled, exhilarated, or something else altogether – whatever you feel, the valley and mountains here will definitely transform you. Yosemite turned a wandering former carriage wheel factory manager named John Muir into a naturalist-writer-wilderness guide and national parks evangelist who called this wilderness “the grandest of all special temples of Nature.” When word of Yosemite began to spread in the mid-1800s, many who’d experienced it firsthand wanted to protect it from eager developers; the conservationists brought about the quietly momentous Yosemite Grant Act of 1864, which entrusted Yosemite Valley to the state of California for preservation – the first time that any American wilderness had ever been set aside for safe-keeping and the enjoyment of generations to come. Later Muir took President Teddy Roosevelt camping in his wilderness “temple,” where they would talk far into the night... and Muir persuaded the President that Yosemite should become a national park. When you see the world from Glacier Point, you’ll understand why.

Tauck Journeys and Yellowstone National Park Highlights:

California’s Gold Coast – Take an open-air tram tour with a national park guide for views of El Capitan, Half Dome and plunging Bridalveil Falls; visit famed astounding Glacier Point; have lunch at historic Wawona Village.

Zion National ParkZION NATIONAL PARK

Zion means “place of refuge, promised land”… A Mormon homesteader thought he found the perfect harbor from persecutors back East when he named the Utah gorge Zion. Brigham Young was not similarly impressed when he visited the canyon in 1870 and declared it “not Zion.” And while for years his faithful followers called it “not Zion,” the name, and the peace it promises, stuck. Today, Zion encompasses 229 square miles of jaw-dropping vertical sandstone cliffs, monoliths, carved buttes, colored mesas and canyon walls. A virgin river runs through it. Cottonwoods, red maples and Ponderosa pines line its rocky trails. And elusive wildlife... and visitors... find welcome solitude here. The habitats you’ll find in Zion are as diverse as the locals and their habits. North America’s big cats rule the night, preferring geology – rocky outcroppings, boulders and caves – and habitat that give them exactly what they want... solitude. The largest birds in the US, golden eagles rule the sky overhead, soaring silently then swooping down on unsuspecting jack rabbits and ground squirrels not quick enough to seek shelter in the rocks below. Mule deer and wild turkeys graze openly in ancient lake beds, collared lizards bask on sandstone in the sun, desert tortoises lumber across the sand, tree frogs and toads blend in with their surroundings and tiny Zion snails hang on to life in the only place they exist in the world.

Tauck Journeys and Zion National Park Highlights:

America’s Canyonlands – Guided sightseeing takes in geologic history 200 million years old… views a trio of peaks known as the Three Patriarchs… goes past emerald pools and riverside trails… views the veil of spring water trickling over Weeping Rock… and takes in a multitude of arches millions of years old, carved by wind and water.

Spirit of the Desert: The National Parks of the Southwest – Attend a presentation by internationally acclaimed environmental historian and author Alfred Runte on the history of the railroad in the national parks; go on a narrated tram ride that brings to light Zion’s most striking images such as unique sandstone cliffs that change in color from light cream to pink to red.

Red Rocks & Painted Canyons – Take a private tram tour on our family adventure to learn about the rocks that comprise Zion’s cliff-and-canyon landscape, pink gorges and dramatic canyons comprised of rock strata deposited over the course of 200 million years.
