From Liberty Island to the Santa Monica Pier, the United States of America largely dominates the North American continent in terms of global appeal. Bordered by mountainous Canada up north and lively Mexico down south, the U.S.A. is one of the most popular destinations for travelers around the world. Still, its surrounding countries are no less attractive to adventure-seekers. Canada has long been a country know for its pristine nature and excellent winter sports facilities, while Mexico’s fascinating culture offers a stark contrast to the ‘American way of life’.

Lesser-known destinations are Greenland, with its vast tundra and immense glaciers, and the beautiful island nations Saint Pierre and Miquelon and Bermuda. The islands are frequently visited by Americans hoping to escape the city, but are also well-visited by the French and the British: though both islands are self-governing territories, they are still overseas territories of France and the United Kingdom.
