Insight Vacations' 2015/16 USA & Canada offering features two incredible new trips and amazing Signature Experiences

TORONTO, June 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Insight Vacations (www.insightvacations.com) is celebrating Canada Day with the launch of its 2015/16 USA & Canada including Hawaii and Alaska program. Featuring 16 premium and nine Gold Luxury escorted journeys with two unique new itineraries added this year, the North American collection now includes Insight's exclusive Signature Experiences across the entire offering. Additionally, Insight Vacations' Early Payment Discount of up to 10 per cent* off selected 2015/16 USA and Canada tours offers travellers incredible value when they book and pay in full by November 20, 2014.

"Our guests enjoy travelling to North America's iconic destinations and being able to discover new sights that our escorted journeys offer in comfort and style," said Cris David, president, Insight Vacations Canada. "Our incredible itineraries showcase the continent's diversity - private vineyards in the West Coast, stunning National Parks, the flavours of the Deep South, bustling, cosmopolitan cities and the laid-back charm of the Maritimes."

For those who love the great outdoors, the new Canadian Rockies & the Pacific Northwest offers guests a 14- or 21-day cultural journey complete with majestic landscapes, towering peaks, sparkling turquoise lakes and gushing rivers. From Vancouver with its broad "foodie" landscape and scenic Stanley Park - this year named the world's most beautiful park in TripAdvisor's 2014 Travellers' Choice Awards - to learning how to fly fish with the pros on an Insight Signature Experience in Spokane, guests are covered from eats to escapades. While this tour ends on land in Seattle, those looking for more can continue onto Alaska for a cruise through ice-blue glaciers, majestic fjords and must-see towns of the Inside Passage.

If travellers prefer to head south for Independence Day, Insight's new 22-day America the Beautiful trip is a comprehensive journey across the USA, spanning 13 states from Los Angeles in the West Coast to New York in the East Coast, with highlights such as Route 66, a Signature Experience learning to dance country western-style in Texas, a guided tour of the Dallas Cowboys' Stadium, a visit to the Graceland Mansion in Memphis, and a visit to the Magnolia Plantation in South Carolina.
