Famous for its diverse range of places to explore, you’ll never be bored seeking the next place to visit.

TrueEarth US Northern California features Yosemite National Park, famous for its stunning valleys and flower-covered meadows, or take a cruise up the Californian coast and watch as the sunshine bounces off the water. The sights you will see will be truly breathtaking. Perhaps you want a more urban experience? The beautiful cityscape of San Francisco has been fully modelled for a detailed rendition of the City by the Bay.  Set yourself the challenge of finding everything there is to see in Northern California.

The most exciting element of North California is the variety of typography throughout the region, meaning you could spend days exploring and still find uniqueness throughout. The rugged coastlines up by Big Sur and Shelter Cove make for excellent expeditions, whilst seeing the peaks of Mt Shasta is simply breathtaking.
