Sometimes, the best trips are just around the corner


Fifty states. Infinite states of mind.

For many of the team at Black Tomato, America is our own backyard. We live and breathe it; this sprawling universe of 10 million square kilometers. From the vineyards of Napa and the red rocks of Utah to the stunning coast of California. And since 2005, we’ve been helping travellers to discover it – one trip at a time.

That’s why we’ve been reminiscing about the many reasons we love America, and pulled together our favourite US experiences into this one single page. So scroll down, take your time, and discover corners of America you never knew existed. We’re ready when you are.



When it comes to choosing where to go in America, the opportunities are endless. But we’re here to help. These are just some of our most popular experiences that take in the best of America.


A wild west adventure in Wyoming

Home to incredible technicolored springs and vast rugged mountains, nowhere screams ‘adventure’ quite like the American southwest. Starting in Jackson Hole, you’ll wind through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, learning to track bears in the forest, white-water raft down Snake River, and horse ride through alpine meadows.

Sheldon Chalet, Alaska

Explore the untamed wilderness of Alaska

No matter where you go in Alaska, you’ll be met with towering mountains and snowy tundras. For 10-nights you’ll explore America’s Last Frontier with dog sled lessons from Iditarod champion Dallas Seavey, guided heli-hikes through Chugach National Park, and whale watching between fjords. The best part? Flying into the one-of-a-kind, remote Sheldon Chalet.

Discover Utah

An otherworldly excursion through Utah

Welcome to Utah: the land of plunging canyons, red rock arches, and isolated buttes. Our US Travel Experts have designed a week-long itinerary to showcase the best of Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon, where we’ll fly you to the top of Tower Butte for a private lunch and take you on an exclusive photography tour of Antelope Canyon.


A tropical escape to Hawaii

Peppering the Pacific Ocean with emerald-hued isles, Hawaii is the original island paradise. Swim with turtles in Maui, and in Kaui, take a doors-off helicopter ride into Mt Waialeale’s crater and learn to surf with a Grand Master. We’ve got you covered.



Explore the USA like never before

Our dedicated team has spent years building their knowledge of the USA, understanding what our travellers want from their trips, and putting together wonderful experiences from coast to coast.

Great American View

#1 The Great American View

It’s no secret that America is home to some of the most spectacular views in the world. And as American photographer, Ansel Adams once said “the art of landscape is the art of knowing where to stand”. So, we’re celebrating The Great American View for ourselves – with a series of breathtaking journeys that take you through some of America’s most legendary sites. From Tower Butte and Robbers Roost to Snake River and Diablo Canyon, it’s time to truly meet America.


Blink camp

#2 Blink

With our ultra-exclusive Blink service, we’ll help you design your perfect luxury accommodation in some of America’s most untouched locations. Places like the North Rim of Grand Canyon. Stage-managed by us, and curated with specialist teams on the ground, we’ll provide all the experiences, facilities, and accommodation, accompanied by the likes of private chefs and expert geologists.

Be the first and the last. Blink and you’ll miss it.


Auberge road trips

#3 Remarkable Drives of Discovery

Last summer we teamed up with our friends at luxury resorts company, Auberge Resorts Collection, to create four road trips through America, in a series called ‘Take the Open Road’. Now, for the second year in a row, we’ve teamed up with them again, to bring you five brand-new road trips. But they aren’t just about the on-road experiences. They give you the freedom to explore at your own pace. We’ll take you horseback riding along the beaches of Monterey and hiking across the Appalachian trail, before bedding down at luxurious Auberge properties. We’ll also gift you a Mercedes-Benz for the duration of your trip.

Space + Time

Covid-19 has certainly changed the world of travel. People are now seeking a slice of privacy more than ever before.

So that’s why we’ve brought together all the ways in which we can design your trip so that you have total privacy guaranteed – think private jets, exclusive yachts, and total hotel buyouts.

Did somebody say road trip?

From winding lanes to mythic Routes. These are our favourite road trips across America

New England holiday

A gourmet-fuelled road trip around New England

Tucked away up in the northeast of America, New England is our go-to getaway for a foodie road trip. With six very different states to its name, you’ll be slinging back self-harvested oysters in the seaside town of Plymouth one minute and the next you’ll be driving through the forests of Maine spotting moose on the roadside. And all at your very own pace.
