National Parks Adventure captures the stunning beauty of our wild places and reminds us these landscapes are an essential part of the human spirit.
The power of America’s national parks is undeniable. Millions have packed up the family to hike through impossibly lush forests, to gaze upon towering cliffs and deep-plunging canyons, to witness the breathtaking arcs of natural history, and, most of all, to share moments of wonder amid the protected treasures of this land.
A MacGillivray Freeman film produced in association with Brand USA and narrated by Academy Award® winner Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure is acclaimed filmmaker Greg MacGillivray’s most visually ambitious giant-screen film to date—a film that offers not only a sweeping overview of the national parks’ history, but is equal parts adrenaline-pumping odyssey and soulful reflection on what the wilderness means to us all.
Hit the road with a trio of adventurers whose passion for the parks is infectious. Together, the threesome represent the gamut of what the national parks bring to different people—from unabashed thrills to solace, healing and the source of their livelihoods.
artist & adventurer
“I’ve been going to Yellowstone and climbing up boulders when my mom wasn’t looking for as long as I can remember! My first distinct memory of a big trip to a national park is going to Utah’s Canyonlands around age 5. Way back then, I had that red rock—that utterly alien landscape—burned into my memory.”
“Much of the best climbing in the U.S. is in national park sites, so as climbers we really appreciate it and we feel an obligation to be stewards. I think the wonderful message of this film is that the wonders of our parks are approachable by anyone.”

“I actually lived in Grand Teton National Park—in what they call the Climber’s Camp. My father never pressured me to climb, but being in the mountains was a great way for us to spend time together. I was always drawn to exploring the amazing places my parents introduced me to.”
