Stretching across a whole continent, America experiences every kind of weather imaginable. The south is blessed with yearlong warmth, while the north has chilly winters, perfect for those in search of a ski break or a white Christmas. City breaks are best saved for the cooler, but still pleasant, temperatures of spring and autumn.
With 50 states to choose from, each with a distinct identity, travellers to the USA can expect an unparalleled diversity of landscapes, nature and culture, all blended together in the melting pot that is America. With arid deserts, frozen tundras, deep canyons, snow-capped mountains, and all the lush national parks in-between, the USA has a wellness destination for everyone. Let Southern California tempt you with immersive health retreats, or undergo transformative experiences with a Tibetan Buddhist Master in Utah, before discovering canyons, lakes, hikes and some of the country’s best national parks on your doorstep. In the forests of Pennsylvania, Japanese Reiki and traditional Thai massage come with a soundtrack of trees swaying and birds chirping. Learn wilderness survival techniques at Canyon Ranch Tucson, hidden in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, or disconnect from the world and explore Miraval's peaceful desert setting on foot, horseback, or bicycle.
