Travel Tips

Virtually escape to beloved national parks with Xanterra Travel Collection’s new #RoamFromHome series. The travel hub allows users to check on weekly projects and park showcases by following #OneWeekdiscoveries, filled with all the sights and sounds of America’s national parks.

 

Tour the beauty and wild landscape of must-visit, but can’t, stunning parks, including Glacier, Zion, Death Valley, Yellowstone and more, from the safety and comfort of home. Stream with the kids and use it as an at-home lesson on conservation or think of it as your much-needed dose of nature with a side of meditation and self-care.

 

Check out the weekly schedule here and stay tuned for updates:

 

  • April 6–10: #OneWeekOfIcons showcases the most iconic and famous locations in America’s national parks, including Old Faithful.
  • April 13–17: #OneWeekOfWow is all about showing off the more astonishing, jaw-dropping sights of each park. Think of this week as the WOW factor for nature lovers and landscape junkies.
  • April 20–24: #OneWeekOfSoftFootprints arrives just in time for Earth Day and showcases Xanterra’s sustainability practices — a great way to entertain and educate the kids on what it means to be an eco-friendly traveler and support Earth-conscious travel practices at home.
  • April 26–May 1: #OneWeekOfStories displays breathtaking photography alongside interesting stories, keeping the crew entertained and in awe.
