Alaska Multisport

Trek past glaciers as tall as high rises, spot active volcanoes and moose the size of minivans. There are trails to hike, rivers to raft, sheltered coves to explore by kayak and breathtaking roads to ride. Not to mention bald eagles everywhere you look, and vast sea waters teeming with puffins, sea otters, humpback whales and orcas! Ready to be part of an incredible Backroads Alaska adventure this summer?

Canadian Rockies Multisport

Mother Nature opens her arms wide for families in the Canadian Rockies. Alongside our Trip Leaders, who are local experts and certified Mountain Parks Heritage Interpreters and Guides, pedal and hike family-friendly routes amid mighty peaks, immense ice fields and turquoise-colored lakes fed by glaciers. The kids team up with a local guide for a rock-climbing lesson. And everyone makes a splash on our rafting trip down the rapids of the Athabasca or Kicking Horse Rivers.

Maine Family Trips photo
Maine Biking

There's so much to smile about in Maine! Jaw-dropping views of Penobscot Bay from Cadillac Mountain. Historic lighthouses and picking wild blueberries. Scaling granite with expert rock-climbing guides. Cycling past the crashing ocean and through charming New England fishing villages. A bald eagle soaring overhead. And even time to sneak off for a spa treatment...

Québec Multisport

Attention explorers of all ages: heed the call of "Vive le Québec!" Here you'll kayak in the realm of beluga whales, ride a gondola to a mountain top and frolic with your family on the beach. Discover glacier-carved fjords, wooded capes and the extraordinary sea life of the might St. Lawrence River. Fuel yourself with Québécois cuisine, apple cider and superb wine. And soak up the vibrant blend of cultures that makes this region so unique.

Dalmatian Coast Family Trips photo
Washington's San Juan Islands Multisport

Million-dollar views of emerald islands and shimmering waterways. Charming villages filled with shops and galleries. The scent of salt-infused air and the slap of waves on driftwood-strewn shores. The stillness of old-growth forests and the flavors of the day's fresh catch. Orcas breaching just past the bow of your ferry and tide pools teeming with colorful sea creatures. There's so much to love about the San Juan Islands. Come experience it with Backroads!
