GoParks! National Parks and Globus Launch New Program

October 20, 2011 By: George Dooley Travel Agent

The Globus family of brands reports it is partnering with the National Park Foundation (NPF), the official charity of America’s national parks, to provide unique tour and packaged travel experiences in America’s national parks. As part of this GoParks! partnership, when travelers book a Globus, Cosmos or Monograms US National Parks vacation, Globus will make a donation to the National Park Foundation at no additional cost to travelers.
“National parks give us a unique oasis where postcard views meet real, life-altering experiences,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands. “Now, we’re not only giving wanderlust-driven travelers inspired national park vacations, with each booking, we’re also ensuring ongoing conservation of these amazing national treasures.”
The Globus family showcases nearly 20 national parks – from Yellowstone and Yosemite to Bryce Canyon and the Badlands – in nearly 35 touring and independent vacations.
“On our GoParks! Tours, travelers won’t just briefly walk around the Grand Canyon, they’ll stay overnight on its magnificent rim,” said Born.  “And, they won’t just see the sites that played a role in the birth of this nation, they’ll hear hidden stories about the struggles of our Founding Fathers, thanks to our expert Tour Directors.  We understand that destinations aren’t just places on the map, they are the backdrops of some of the most fascinating scenes and stories in history.”
The company’s most popular touring vacations featuring America’s national parks are:

    •    (Globus) America’s National Parks (10 days from Rapid City to Salt Lake City)
    •    (Globus) Parks & Canyons Spectacular (14 days from Rapid City to Las Vegas)
    •    (Globus) California Classics (9 days from San Francisco to Los Angeles)

    •    (Cosmos) Highlights of the Canyonlands (8 days from Las Vegas to Las Vegas)

Also popular are independent travel packages offered through Monograms.  “Our inspired driving and rail vacations through Alaska, the Canadian Rockies and the Redwoods, Wine Country & Yosemite are perfect for people who want to have fun exploring America’s backyard on their own,” said Born.
Favorite Monograms GoParks! vacations are America’s National Parks (8 days from Salt Lake City to Rapid City), Canyon Escape (7 days from Las Vegas to Las Vegas) and The Historic East (8 days, from Washington, DC to Philadelphia).
“There are a vast number of unique experiences national parks can offer any traveler,”  said Neil Mulholland, president and CEO of the National Park Foundation. “By joining together with the Globus family, we’re giving visitors an easy way to have a one of a kind national park experience while supporting these iconic treasures at the same time.”
