California

Nowhere maybe more encapsulates the American Dream than California. But dig beyond the sun, surf and Hollywood stars, and you'll find an extraordinary wealth of reasons to visit. Explore the neighbourhood communities of San Francisco, ride a Harley Davidson down Big Sur, savour Californian cuisine in the Spanish mission town of Santa Barbara, and shop with Tinseltown’s finest on Rodeo Drive.

California

California may well conjure up visions of Hollywood stars and tanned surfers, dotcom millionaires and tree-hugging communities, but that’s just the surface. We’ll help you dig a little deeper to uncover the secret jewels and amazing contrasts of America’s Golden State. Away from the coast, search out fantastic biodynamic wines among the sun-honeyed wineries of Napa and Sonoma, go trekking from waterfall to waterfall in the High Sierra, feel small among groves of giant redwoods and sequoias, and relax by hot springs in fabulous desert resorts. California truly has something for everyone.
