California Vacations, Tour Packages & Travel Experiences


  • Bixby Bridge, Big Sur

Home to Hollywood, ancient redwood forests, and thousands of miles of sparkling coastline, there’s a reason that sunny California is one of America’s most populous and influential states. Stargaze in cinematic history in Los Angeles, the sprawling metropolis containing artsy and radical spirits throughout its hip neighbourhoods and iconic attractions like Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Universal Studios, Santa Monica Pier, and more.

“The Golden State” boasts over 280 state and national parks with varied landscapes, including
the famed waterfalls of Yosemite, enormous tree trunks of Sequoia, and deep valleys of Kings Canyon. Rainforests meet you in the north, Martian-like landscapes of the Mojave Desert in the east, and the sprawling lights of cities like San Francisco, San Diego, and LA on the coast. Explore wine country in the Napa Valley, whose reputation spans the globe for its flavourful grapes produced in its perfect climate. Whether you prefer to surf the Pacific Ocean or plunge into the turquoise waters of Lake Tahoe, California’s diverse beauty will stun you at every turn
