North America

One of nature’s greatest masterpieces!

When it comes to travel, North America is always teeming with a wide range of possibilities. From the Rocky Mountains of western Canada to the coral reefs down in Mexico, North America is one of the few continents on the planet that covers every climatic zone. With its first nomadic inhabitants traveling across the Bering land bridge during the Last Glacial period, North America is made up of 23 countries spread over 24,709,000 kilometers squared. A dynamic and diverse society that is oftentimes overshadowed by its fairytale wilderness, North America is a continent that would take more than 10 lifetimes to explore. Anyone brave enough to visit this unspoiled land will find that off the grid adventure is king.
