SALEM, Ohio — Globus takes groups to discover the wonder of North America, from sea to shining sea. On the heels of one of the biggest and best years for North America travel, the company is unveiling a large selection of North America vacations that includes new special event getaways and Mexico and Cuba itineraries.
“My favorite new tour for 2017, hands down, is our 10-day Oregon’s Coast, Cascades and Craft Beers,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands. “Travelers will kick off their vacation with a beer tasting at Redhook Ale Brewery in Seattle. Itinerary highlights include several park visits, such as Fort Clatsop National Historic Park, Cape Mears State Park and Crater Lake National Park. There will be a dune buggy ride in Florence, a Hood River orchard visit and beer tastings in Newport, Bend, Hood River, Portland and more.”
Other tour itineraries, such as Tournament of Roses with San Diego, are built around special events. Globus is also expanding its Mexico offerings in the new year, including Mexico’s Copper Canyon vacation and the Wonders of Mexico’s Yucatán itinerary.
In addition, Globus is expanding its Cuba itineraries with the 13-day Cuba Panorama. On this people-to-people program, travelers will explore the beautiful island nation to take in its compelling history and rich culture while also being immersed in Cuba’s everyday life through captivating activities like joining and discussing life and the arts with the dancers of the world-renowned Camagüey Ballet Company, joining a mojito-making demonstration and walking through Old Havana with an architect.
For groups hoping to enjoy the beauty and wonder of America’s beautiful landscapes, Globus is once again offering dozens of GoParks! tours. For the first time, when groups book a Globus GoParks! U.S. national parks vacation, the company will donate to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps families of firefighters injured or killed in the line of duty.
As part of every vacation, Globus provides groups “local favorite” moments in North America with experiences such as touring the spectacular Antelope Slot Canyon with a Native American guide, visiting Washington wine country to sample some of the region’s best wines, spending time with an Amish family when visiting its country store and farm, and touring the Gloria Ferrer wine caves and tasting its sparkling wines
“Our outdoor escapes, those vacations featuring America’s natural landscapes, are among our most popular vacations,” said Born. “And now, with 16 Globus GoParks! tours to 43 national parks, we’re not only giving our groups oases where postcard views meet life-altering experiences, we’re helping ensure the ongoing conservation of our national parks.”
On all of Globus’ North America tours, groups are privy to expertly designed, inclusive land programs that feature world-class accommodations, guided sightseeing, engaging lectures and VIP access to key destinations. Globus also invites groups to stay connected, even on the road, with free Wi-Fi on every motorcoach.
