What to see and do in The USA

Can’t see it here? No problem. Just ask, and we’ll get to work.

Ride out in the High Rockies

Evocative and dramatic, Dunton Hot Springs is a romantic 1800s ghost town of renovated cabins set in its own alpine valley. From here, you can enjoy some of the most dramatic horse riding in America. Ski snow-dusted tracks. Ford tumbling rivers. Experience the west in all its majesty and freedom.

Snorkel for mantas in Hawaii

By night, the warm waters off Keauhou Bay come alive with a mass of graceful manta rays. With some of the creatures growing up to 16ft in length, you’ll join certified guides and crew to experience this truly spectacular nocturnal ballet – witnessing some of nature’s most stunning creatures in their own underwater realm.

Traverse Ranch Country

Here, at Paws Up Ranch, you’ll encounter 37,000 acres of pristine wilderness and parkland. Only it’s private. Located in vast tracts of jaw-dropping scenery, you can experience everything from white-water rafting and horseback trails to fly fishing and clay shooting. A true taste of old America wrapped up with unbeatable modern luxury.

Culture and indulgence in the 'holy city'

The so-called ‘Holy City’ offers a true taste of the new old America. Its charming colonial architecture and cobbled streets are properly thronged with on-trend wine bars, distilleries, retail and restaurants. Plantation gardens, Louisiana grill, oysters and antebellum charm. We’ll introduce you to the pick of the bunch.

Sail the waters of Lake Powell

Travel by speedboat across one of the world’s greatest and largest lakes. Framed by towering buttes and ochre massifs, the region has, since 1869, drawn adventurous sailors and adventurers to its iconic landscapes – including photogenic Antelope Canyon to the Rainbow Bridge National Monument.

Vineyards of Napa Valley, California

Enjoy simple pleasures done differently. You don’t need to visit Napa Valley to drink its legendary Cabernet Sauvignon, but it does taste better when sipped amongst its sweeping vineyards with your own personal sommelier. Jump the waiting list to score the best seat in the house at Yountville’s celebrated three-Michelin-starred restaurant, The French Laundry, where Thomas Keller’s signature oysters and pearls will take you to gastronomical paradise.

Explore the wilderness of Alaska

Immerse yourself in the rawness of Alaska where wilderness means uncharted territory and mountains with no name. Feel reborn as you hike the mysterious terrain surrounding Ultima Thule Lodge with a local expert. Marvel the neon green aurora from a bespoke luxury Blink campsite or take in the world-class view of the Don Sheldon Amphitheatre from the exclusive Sheldon Chalet which can accommodate just 10 people at a time. Our Alaska experience will fuel conversation for a lifetime of dinner parties.

Hike The Narrows

The towering red walls of Zion National Park are the stuff of legend. On this thrilling hike, you’ll traverse the course of the North Fork river; a stunning gorge of monumental sandstone, smudged in trails of orange, purple, and black. The full route can take two days, seeing you camp within the bounds of its ancient embrace.

Camp out in Zion

If we do one thing, it’s that we do things differently. With Black Tomato’s luxury camping service Blink, we can set up a luxurious, all-inclusive amp within the bounds of this most majestic of National Parks, including at the quiet north rim of the Grand Canyon itself. Check out our award-winning Blink service for more.

Sheldon Chalet, Alaska

Privacy is taken to new heights at the 6,000ft high Sheldon Chalet in Alaska. Sitting pretty above the snow-capped panorama of Denali National Park, this luxury chalet features just five guest rooms, all geared towards first-class service. Whether you seek adventure or disconnection, you’ll find it all amongst the pristine wilderness. Once back, expect gourmet dinners comprising of locally sourced produce and world-beating wines, before retiring to the comforts of your room where fur throws and contemplative views of the vast snowy tundra come as standard.

The best of The USA

California

Live it up in Hollywood. Pair things down in Napa.

We’ve sunk deep roots on the sunshine coast – a Black Tomato favourite. A client obsession. We can organise everything from private tours of iconic Kunde Winery, set up a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the Napa Valley, set you up with an expert Conservancy Ranger in Yosemite, and see you off whale watching in Monterey with your private Zodiac boat. One of our private drivers will help you to connect the dots. Breathe deep.

The West

Lose yourself in America’s iconic heartlands.

Rugged, independent, and remote. Embark on an expertly curated journey through the very heart of the USA. Stay at the incomparable Amangiri or newly opened (and adjacent) Camp Sarika. Walk the footsteps of the Navajo in Monument Valley. Trek the stately Colorado Rockies. And live out your western fantasies at the renovated ghost town of Dunton Hot Springs. This is where real life begins.

Charleston

Explore the ‘new, old’ heart of antebellum America.

It’s historic, yes – and charming. But this South Carolina city is fit to bursting with on-trend eateries, award-winning wineries, mouth-watering distilleries and world-class hotels. Shake the trail-dust off and indulge yourself on gourmet dining, historic antebellum gardens, easygoing café culture and world-class bars. We’ll ensure you always have a seat at the table.
