Take an unforgettable journey to the United States with friends

Close your eyes and picture your adventure with friends in the United States. Are you spotting a grizzly bear in its natural habitat? Climbing rugged red desert rocks? Hiking through national parks with mountain views as far as the eye can see? Cycling through San Francisco? Sampling a wine in the Oregon wine region? Surfing off the coast of Santa Barbara? Marvelling at black-sand beaches of Hawaii? Doing anything your heart desires? The possibilities are limitless.

Experience the United States like a local.

Your well-organised holiday to the United States should represent you and your friends - and everything you like to do together. Stay in small-scale accommodations that offer the perfect blend of genuine American hospitality and authentic local experiences other tourists don't know about. Short drives and mapped-out routes make sure you hit all your bucket-list items while travelling at a relaxed pace. Surrounding nature provides the perfect backdrop to learn new things about the world, your friends, and yourself in turn. Let’s put your dreams on paper.

Sustainability in action

When is the best travel time?

The United States is a beautifully diverse country that is great for travel at any time of the year. Every season offers a new adventure, and each region has a unique personality of its own. Spring brings the wildlife out of hibernation with their newborns. Summer is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. Autumn brings an aesthetic like no other, with bright red, orange, and yellow leaves. Thick layers of snow cover the mountains and grounds during the winters.

Based on your specific interests, we can advise you on the best time to travel and the best regions to visit. Do you want to surf? Explore the cities? Hike to spot grizzly bears? Since the options are endless, click below to get a glimpse of what each season in the United States can offer you on your adventure with friends.

How long do we need in the United States?

The United States is one of the biggest countries in the world. You could spend months travelling the ever-changing landscape and not see the same place twice. For your holiday, the question becomes, "How long do we have?". The more time you have means the more you'll be able to see and do.

To truly experience the essence of the United States, we recommend travelling at a relaxed pace for a minimum of three weeks. Or, if you have slightly less time, you can visit a few places in-depth and come back again one day.

Go waterfall hopping through Yosemite National Park, the crown jewel of California. Sail the waters of San Francisco Bay. America’s flora and fauna is so impressive that you will never feel alone.

Your options are endless, with personally selected private or small-group local activities, ranging from easy-going to adventurous. Let us know your interests and discover what is best for you.

How do we travel around?

From coastal roads, to panoramic mountain passes, and awe-inspiring desert landscapes, the United States is best explored by car or SUV. The roads are safe and the views from your car are often magnificent.

Driving yourself means you're able to reach places that group trips and public transport cannot. You can go at your own pace and stop when necessary. With only a couple of hours between each location, you'll have more time to relax and explore, which is what you should be doing on your holiday.

Flying to the United States

The United States isn't that far away. A direct flight takes approximately eight hours to the East Coast and ten hours to the West Coast. With a stopover, the flight time fluctuates between 11 and 14 hours. Your holiday begins as soon as you board your flight, so a comfortable journey makes all the difference.

No matter which class you fly, our hard work and connections with airlines at Little America ensure you the best flight schedule, the most spacious seats in each class, a private HD display, delicious food and drinks for the journey, and of course, the best price.
