Deluxe Guided Vacations and Cruises Since 1989!
North Dakota Legends     NEW!
Teddy Roosevelt called this land at the edge of the plains, "a world of beauty and color and limitless space."
Some of America's most inspiring adventurers, including Lewis and Clark, Sakakawea, and President Theodore Roosevelt, left footprints in this sparsely populated state. Even today, the rugged land feels little changed since they passed. North Dakota is the home of a landscape of rolling hills, winding river, and badlands is complemented by free roaming bison.
