|| Dear Traveler,
Discovering America's national parks with Backroads couldn't be easier—or more fun! Whether by bike or on foot, paddling a kayak or a river raft, camping under the stars or getting cozy at a historic lodge, exploring actively as a family is a super way to experience a region in an interactive way, stimulate all your senses and really enjoy the journey together.
Backroads' 2014 lineup features our favorite national parks for active families.
These trips have special kids-only activities, such as rock climbing and mule riding, so the balance of family time together and "restorative" time apart always feels just right. So what are you waiting for? Book your trip today and discover what makes national park'ing with Backroads so much fun!
- Explore Bryce and Zion National Parks, where bizarre and beautiful rock formations will make you feel like you're on a different planet. But you'll know your feet are firmly planted on Earth when you see the depth of the mighty Grand Canyon!
- The Canadian Rockies' Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks provide miles of awe-struck smiles as you hike, bike, climb and paddle on pristine trails, scenic byways and rushing rivers. Cross a massive glacier on foot and behold thundering waterfalls!
- If you can tear yourself away from the geothermal wonders in Wyoming's Yellowstone National Park, hike to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and kayak on Yellowstone Lake. Then have a blast white-water rafting and biking in nearby Grand Teton National Park... and more!
