Wilderness Vacations in the USA

Let the dust fly as you turn off the beaten track and into the untamed, the unspoilt, and truly raw wildernesses of the USA. Chopper over vast red sand deserts, sail near the shores of forest-fringed coastline, and canter past grazing bison on undulating ranchlands. You name it, the USA has it.

Offering awe and adventure in supersized helpings, the USA is a grand wilderness that requires an equally ambitious outlook to experience the best of it. That’s what we do at Pelorus, where our huge appetite for adventure ensures trips that seem like slideshows of bucket list highlights. Our expert team’s military background, coupled with our deep local knowledge, delivers a truly personal and epic vacation.

And long-haul flights and long journeys aren’t always required, as often the most beautiful and unique places are found right under your noses. For those living in the US, a cornucopia of wondrous experiences can often be found close to home. Within a few hours, you can be in a totally different environment. That is the beauty of the USA.

For Everyone

A melting pot of natural wonders and diverse climates, it’s little surprise that the great American wilderness plays host to an array of experiences. It is ideal for a family adventure, introducing children to a wider world with the help of expert guides who can bring learning to life. It can be the ultimate adventure honeymoon for some romantic escapism or a playground for naturalists seeking wild encounters with rare species. 

Cover vast distances over scenic territory swiftly, either by helicopter or by connecting with the wind and water of Alaska’s coastline onboard a luxury yacht. Or travel by horseback, hiking, or a hot air balloon for slower travel and the opportunity to truly tune in with your surroundings. Either way, with Pelorus you will discover the wilderness from new heights and different perspectives.


Your Travels Enriched

The chance to disconnect and open your eyes to the natural world has never been so appealing. And there are more opportunities than ever to enrich our travels with meaningful forays into the wild.

The USA is home to some of the last remaining areas of true wilderness on Earth—where better to experience the natural world than here? As anthropogenic factors threaten our fragile ecosystems, these wild expanses are becoming ever more precious.


Below we have handpicked some of our favorite luxury lodges and wilderness adventures, just a flavor of the personal experience we can tailor for your next vacation.
