While we’ve all been trained to explore the world by the Web, sometimes it’s just nice to have a catalog in hand to browse and earmark the things that interest you. Can’t you see yourself curled up on the couch on a crisp fall evening dreaming of where you will travel next spring?
That’s why we urge you to request a catalog from Backroads in addition to browsing our full-service website, which offers not only an easy to find list of all our biking trips and walking tours, but a wealth of trip preparation information, including recommendations for travel gear, travel health advice and Rail Europe, as well.
Backroads offer three catalogs – Biking and Multisport, Walking and Hiking, and Family Trips – which you can request here.
Each catalog details:
- The type of experience you’ll have (biking, hiking or multisport), and explains that your active vacation will be as “active” as you’d like. Bike, hike or ride in the van – or all three! It’s totally up to you.
- Our trip leaders and their qualifications. Our leaders are a defining difference between Backroads tours and a trip with another company. Our leaders are amazing, talented, passionate and have lots of experience. They really know the places they’ll take you, and that makes your trip a very unique one. Plus, they’ll be as engaged as you like, providing you with lots of local info, or giving you as much space as you need.
- The connection we have with locals in each location. This relationship enables us to provide you with insider knowledge, as well as local leaders and experts. You’ll truly get to experience the destination as the locals do.
- The service we provide. Backroads allows you to focus entirely on your trip, letting us handle all the details. Two vans travel alongside most trips to give you a break from the bike/hike if you need, provide snacks, fix bicycle problems and more. We also take your luggage from location to location and have all accommodations and most dining planned for you. Our trip leaders can also customize trip experiences for your unique needs and desires.
They say a picture’s worth 1,000 words and Backroads agrees! That’s why we’ve also filled our catalogs with breathtaking photos for each of our featured adventure trips. Backroads truly goes to some of the most beautiful places on earth and our catalogs capture bits and pieces of these areas – just enough to whet your appetite and want to make a reservation so you can go see these places for yourself!
To request one of our catalogs, please visit our website, fill out a brief form and we’ll send one to you as soon as possible so you can start making those vacation plans. Got questions in the meantime? Please call one of our trip consultants 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Pacific time at 800-462-2848.
