  It's been more than three decades since we first resolved to explore the planet actively—and to share that passion with our guests. And during the past 34 incredible years, we've kept our promise of redefining what a family vacation can be and bringing you a better way to discover and connect with the world.
  Dear Traveler,

There's still time for you and your family to enjoy the best summer vacation ever—with Backroads! The question is...where to?

As a native of Canada and mother of two boys, I give an enthusiastic thumbs-up to our Canadian Rockies family adventures. From fascinating wildlife and stunning natural beauty to rich local history, there's something here for everyone in your gang. We've mapped out the best biking and hiking routes for families and uncovered places you might never find on your own. We've arranged the best hotels (you'll love the pool at the Post Hotel), the most scenic campgrounds and kid-friendliest restaurants. And you'll travel with the most amazing Trip Leaders on the planet!

It's hard to match the good times you'll enjoy when you travel with Backroads. When families explore actively together, the fun and camaraderie just come naturally. And kids have such an amazing time on these trips, they have no idea how much they're learning in the process! It all adds up to an exceptional vacation and a lifetime of wonderful memories.

I hope to welcome you and your family to Canada this summer,
