Overlanding is a fantastic way to experience the traveller's paradise of North and Central America! Dragoman have been the world's leading overland operator for decades, so take advantage of our years of experience and come with us as we include all the must-see attractions as well as heading into the wilds, well away from the usual tourist trail. We begin our journey in the Alaskan town of Anchorage, and wind our way through the wilds of Alaska and the forest-covered slopes of Canada's mountain country. We will learn about the local cultures and minig history, camp out in the wilderness, trek through the breathtaking landscapes, forests and glaciers, and have the chance to enjoy some exhilirating outdoor activities in some of the world's best National Parks such as Denali, Jasper and Banff. From the glittering city of Banff, we journey through the stunning western USA along the famous Rocky Mountains, to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, the geothermal geysers of Yellowstone, the red columns of Monument Valley in Utah, and through the incredible deserts of Arizona en route to Mexico. This scenic and active journey takes us to Mexico's buzzing capital. From the artistic Mexico City, we journey through some of Central America's greatest highlights including Mexico's incredible Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, the tropical paradise of Caye Caulker in Belize, and the ruined city of Tikal in Guatemala. After visiting the colourful markets of Chichicastenango, we reach the charming colonial town of Antigua. Join us on this unforgettable overlanding experience through the Americas!
