Holidays in the Great Smoky Mountains
Here at Titan, we make it easy for you to plan a relaxing and unforgettable holiday to the USA. We take care of everything for you, from picking you up with our VIP Home Departure Service, through to organising accommodation and travel - so all you need to worry about is packing your bags and having a great time.
A stunning landscape
One of the main reasons millions of people visit the Smokies every year is due to the awe-inspiring scenery that the region has to offer.
Standing on a summit, you can look out across the valleys to see mile after mile of mountain peaks - often shrouded by a soft mist that creates a mysterious and romantic atmosphere.
During sunset and sunrise, the landscape becomes even more breathtaking, as the sky is illuminated with bright reds and golds that contrast dramatically with the greens, blues and greys of the mountain range below.
For a truly spectacular show of colours, however, there's no better time to visit the Great Smokey Mountains than the autumn as the leaves start to change. October and early November are the best time to travel if this performance of nature is something you want to witness.
As well as the vast picturesque views, there are plenty of other lovely things to look at in the Smokies, including gorgeous waterfalls and quietly babbling brooks, secluded meadows, vast forests and a number of historic buildings.
Flora and fauna
Although some of the forest land of the Smokies was destroyed by loggers in the last century, there's still a huge amount of old growth forest, which is home to birch, buckeye, spruce, fir and maple trees, as well as wildflowers, ferns, hydrangea, and various types of fungi.
If you enjoy watching wildlife, the region is home to many of North America's larger mammal species - like the black bear, white-tailed deer, bobcat, coyote, fox, flying squirrel, river otter and boar.
Birdwatchers will also have a host of creatures to look out for, including wild turkeys, ravens, chickadees, whip-poor-wills, woodpeckers and hummingbirds. For a real treat, be sure to keep a sharp eye out for bald eagles, red-tailed hawks, peregrine falcons and various species of owls.
Other things to see and do
With a Great Smoky Mountain tour from Titan, you won't just be going on holiday to see the stunning mountains and lakes of this picturesque region. Indeed, there will be plenty of opportunities to see other parts of the eastern USA.
The holiday actually begins in Washington DC, where you'll be able to see famous landmarks like the US Capitol building and the Whitehouse, as well as the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Memorial. There's also the vast Smithsonian museum complex.
Other stops along on the tour include Charlottesville, Lexington and Roanoke - all cities in Virginia and important sites in America's history.
Williamsburg is another popular destination for those on trips through the Great Smoky Mountains.
This historic city started as a plantation in the 1600s and for many years served as the capital of Virginia. Today, Colonial Williamsburg is a tourist attraction that brings history to life, with costumed characters re-enacting what life would have been like for colonists.
