North America is a geographical area included in the continent of America encompassing Usa, Canada, Alaska and Greenland.
Geographically it can be divided into four big areas: the Great Plains, from Gulf of Mexico to the Canadian Arctic; the young Western mountains; the Canadian Shield, located in the Central-East Canada; and the North-East region, the most diverse area, hosting many mountain ranges, such as the Appalachian Mountains, the coastlines facing the Atlantic Ocean and the peninsula of Florida.
North America features many different climates and landscapes because of its extension. The United States of America are probably the most popular travel destination, thanks to the big cities, such as New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco, but also due to the beauty and diversity of its natural landscape, from the gorges of Grand Canyon to the sweet coasts of Florida.
Canada is the ideal destination for those loving nature, thanks to the great natural parks, Niagara Falls and the chance to view aurora borealis. Then there are the extremely charming cities of Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City, the oldest city of North America.
Finally, the cold lands of Alaska and Greenland await the brave traveller. The first surprises with its glaciers and fjords (or Mount Kinley, the highest mountain of North America), while the second will leave you breathless with its hot springs, jagged coasts and Arctic wildlife.
