The activities will differ depending on which National Park you're visiting, but you can always be sure of incredible natural wonders, breath taking beauty and exciting adventures.
Hike Yosemite's Sentinel Dome, raft down the Colorado River, walk the rocky shoreline of Maine's Acadia National Park, or take in the view of seven states from Clingmans Dome in the Great Smoky Mountains. In Alaska you can gaze up at Mount Denali while also keeping an eye out wolves, bear, moose and caribou.
The National Parks and Lakes are as much about preservation as they are about entertainment. While luxury National Park holidays are about relaxation and enjoyment, the most important thing here is the nature and its protection.
Wherever you choose to visit you can be sure of a wild ride. Whether you're watching Old Faithful erupt in Yellowstone, gaping in awe at the natural rock formations of Zion, walking through redwoods or learning about kelp in the Channel Islands, you're sure to be amazed.
While there is never a bad time to visit, there are certain times when some of the National Parks are at their best. Denali in Alaska for example, is best avoided in the winter with its long dark days and endless snow.
Death Valley shouldn't be visited in summer to avoid the worst of the heat, while spring brings wild flowers to many of the parks, including the Great Smoky and Rocky Mountain National Parks, while a profusion of flowers hits the Sonoran Desert in early summer.
