The Yellowstone National Park is a 3000+ square miles of unspoiled beauty, divided between Wyoming, Idaho and Montana. Wandering across the most ancient National Park (it was founded in 1872 by president Grant), your eyes will be blessed by the sight of canyons, lushy forests, and spectacular geysers like the Old Faithful. A spot not to miss is the Grand Prismatic Spring with its bright, vivid colors. Moreover, the Yellowstone National Park is a true paradise of untamed wildlife. It’s not uncommon to share the trail with buffalos, elks or sometimes grizzlies. Such extraordinary wonders got this colossal National Park the title of world heritage from UNESCO. A true paradise to visit at least once (and more) in your life.
This National Park is an iconic Eden for anyone who loves wilderness and adventures. In fact, the Yosemite Park is widely remembered for the epic climbing achievements on El Capitan or the Half Dome, making it a true shrine for any climbing lover. Other than its granite walls polished by the ice, the Yosemite Park features valleys rich of meadows, ancient giant sequoias and golden waterfalls, when hit by the California sun. Moreover, the valley’s campgrounds offer many activities to practice in wild, like ranger-led nature walks or rafting. Otherwise you can live the camping life, maybe trying to capture with a solar engraving the majestic nature of this beautiful park using Febo!
Spanning more than 1.5 million acres on the southern tip of Florida, the Everglades are a boundless jungle where the green of the mangroves blends with the blue of the brackish waters. This fascinating swamp reserve is home for hundreds of species of subtropical fauna. Exploring this immense National Park on a boat trip you’ll get to admire the pinkish flight of the spoonbills, cormorants and ospreys fishing, bald eagles crossing the skies. And with some more luck, manatees and dolphins will accompany your boat, or you’ll manage to sight a Florida panther hiding in the vegetation. Dive deep in a true American safari and let the spirit of the Everglades inspire your imagination: maybe you’ll recognize an alligator in a tree trunk floating on the waters.
The Atlantic Ocean, the jagged cliffs, the wild forests. These elements make this little National Park a precious pearl of the New England. On the 43km of the Park Loop Road, fjords and beaches alternates with forests where to hike and lakes where kayaking. The Acadia National Park offers moment of peace and reflection, as well as thrilling emotions when watching the whales swimming during a sightseeing cruise. Moreover, go visit the Bass Harbor Head Light, one of the most picturesque places in the park, where a white lighthouse stands on a promontory overlooking the ocean.
Mount Rainier is the highest peak of the Cascade Range in Washington. The atmosphere that you’ll breath will remind you that one of the Alps. In fact, the Mount Rainier National Park is the most glaciated area in the contiguous USA, featuring 26 glaciers and permanent snowfields. The subalpine landscape is rich of ancient forests, green meadows with alpine pastures, and magnificent waterfalls. The park is full of hikes and trails, both for beginners and experts, to immerse in the wonders of this National Park’s nature. Moreover, making this park even more fascinating, is the presence of two volcanoes on the top of the mountain.

Luckily, there are 61 National Parks in the US, and many more reserves and protected areas where the beauty of wilderness is still unspoiled and untamed.
