This Fall, Travel with the Very Best!
No matter how incredible a destination might be. No matter how stellar the views or rich the culture, we've always believed that the experience is enhanced (immeasurably!) when it's shared with other engaged, inquisitive people with a common spirit for adventure. We work hard to attract this type of guest—active, outgoing travelers who are keen to see the world up close—and we focus even harder on hiring and training the most phenomenal trip leaders on the planet! Knowledgeable, caring and endlessly enthusiastic, our trip leaders are renowned for their ability to transform a great vacation into the kind of authentic, inspiring, even life-changing experience you could never orchestrate on your own. Most of all, Backroads leaders create a very special positive energy...and it's contagious!
While our fall trips are filling quickly, we still have space available on select September and October departures, from Washington's sensational San Juan Islands to Turkey's magical Mediterranean Coast.
What follows is a small sample of the leaders you can meet in person on upcoming trips this September and October!
Hope to see you out there,
Founder & President

A Trip Specialist several times over, Vincent Soyer is a globetrotter through and through. He's traveled all over the world, leading Backroads trips from South America to Southeast Asia, and nearly every European destination. Though he loves adventures worldwide, Argentina and Spain are home for this Frenchman. When he's not on the go, you can find him green-thumbing in his San Juan, Argentina, garden or soaking in the mountain views from a quaint Pyrenees hamlet.

It's been 20 years—and some 300 trips—since Paul's first Backroads trip, camping on the Russian River in California. And during this time he's surprised even himself by falling in love with Chinese culture and the joy of riding a bike through its sometimes crazy countryside; doing more laps around the South Island of New Zealand than anyone in Backroads' history; learning about world religions by working in Bhutan and Bali, where he became fascinated with prayer wheels and Hindu gods; living each summer in the San Juan islands, knowing the way the light looks on the water at all hours of the day, from all viewpoints, like a local knows it. Come and join this Backroads legend in his element!
