Globus & Cosmos Unveil 2016 North America Itineraries

LITTLETON, Colorado – October 7, 2015 – Isn’t it time to discover the wonder of North America? Globus is asking this question as it invites travelers to travel from sea to shining sea in 2016. Next year, the company is unveiling a large selection of North America vacations including a NEW “Special Event” getaway in Canada and two NEW GoParks! Tours in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.

“In 2016, the National Park Service is celebrating their 100th anniversary,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands. “Globus is inviting travelers join in the celebration! This is the year to see these breathtaking treasures. Imagine waking up to an amazing sunrise in a hotel right on the rim of the Grand Canyon, or riding a horse to admire the pink and orange-spired hoodoos at Bryce Canyon. We immerse travelers in the sights and history of our nation in countless ways—with discovery and wonder for all.”

For travelers hoping to enjoy the beauty and wonder of America’s beautiful landscapes, Globus is once again teaming up with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of America’s national parks, to provide unique tour experiences in these amazing national treasures. Since 2012, as part of this Globus and NPF GoParks! collaboration, when travelers book a Globus GoParks! US national parks vacation, the company will make a donation to the NPF at no additional cost to travelers.

To commemorate its long-time partnership with the National Park Foundation and 100 years of the National Park Service, last week, Globus unveiled an unparalleled, once-in-a-lifetime 103-day Centennial Celebration: 100 Days of GoParks! tour which visits 35 National Parks. Globus is also providing travelers a NEW opportunity to explore the West with a 10-day Southern California with Death Valley & Joshua Tree National Parks vacation.

Never settling for cookie-cutter itineraries, as part of every vacation, Globus provides travelers Local Favorite moments in North America with experiences like:

  • Touring the spectacular Antelope Slot Canyon with a Native American Guide
  • Visiting Washington Wine Country to sample some of the regions best wines
  • Spending time with an Amish Family when visiting their country store and farm
  • Touring the Gloria Ferrer wine caves and tasting their 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 travelers oases where postcard views meet life-altering experiences, we’re helping ensure the ongoing conservation of our national parks.”

Globus’ top three (3) GoParks! itineraries are:

  • 8-day Canyon Country Adventure
  • 9-day Classic Fall Foliage
  • 10-day Spectacular Alaska
