North America is a vast continent, spanning more than 20 million square kilometres and home to two of the biggest countries in the world, the USA and Canada. North America contains some of the world’s most beautiful national parks, including Yosemite, Yellowstone and Denali in the USA and Jasper and Banff in Canada. These national parks are fantastic for walkers as they are best explored on foot.

The USA has 59 national parks. Yellowstone was the first and the largest is Wrangell-St Elias in Alaska at over 8 million acres. As well as walking through spectacular scenery, if you are lucky it is also possible to spot some of the North American wildlife including brown bear, moose and caribou. Two of the most popular day walks in the USA are walking down into the Grand Canyon and the Narrows walk in Zion National Park.
