About North America Active

Hiking and cycling tour specialists

We are the people within one of the world's first ever adventure travel companies, World Expeditions, who were voted the Adventure Travel company of the year by our peers at the Australian 2019 Travel Awards.

Our team love to discover the world under their own steam, be it on twho feet or on two wheels. Putting our passion and knowledge of hiking and cycling, as well as our expertise for creating active self-guided tours, to great use, we’re proudly putting North America and its premier destinations on your doorstep with our range of cyclling and hiking trips, both guided and self-guided.

With our extensive knowledge of the destinations and of all things cycling and hiking, this means you get the very best advice, every time. While safety is core to how we operate, we’re also focused on the fun factor and suitably challenging you to reach that great sensation of personal achievement through these immersive active travel experiences. 

You don't have to be a keen cyclist or hiker to join one of our North America Active trips. You just need a sense of adventure and a love of the outdoors.

Come explore the United States and Canada the active way with us, on a self-guided or guided hiking or walking trip.

Our Value Promise

Organising your own multi-day cycling or hiking trip is time-consuming and logistically difficult, especially when you just want to enjoy your trip.

The benefit of travelling with North America Active is that we’ve taken all the hassle out of planning a cycling or hiking trip with our range of 'ready to roll' itineraries. You can choose whether you prefer to travel with a group, or prefer the benefits of group travel but freedom of travelling independently on a self-guided active tour.

Every North America Active trip we offer is genuinely good value. Our range of self-guided hiking and cycling trips include essential items like bike inclusion, app navigation, baggage transfers and comfortable accommodation included in the trip cost allows you to better budget for your cycle journey and eliminates many out of pocket expenses. 

Enjoy the trail ahead - without the hassles of organising it.
