Two (or More) Vans for Support
Spend your time enjoying your trip—especially those unscripted moments that make active travel so rewarding— and not waiting for the lone van to show up. Enjoy the amount of activity you like—at your own pace, always with the option to change your mind as the day unfolds.
Other companies often have only one van. With one van there are untold situations where it's out of commission. At Backroads we put our money where our mouth is with two vans (if not three)* to support a wide range of route options—while you enjoy the ultimate flexibility. We know you may welcome some time to yourself while you're out exploring. But when you need us, we're there. Want a snack or a cold drink? Left your map behind? Looking for a lift up the next hill—or back to the pool? You can always count on exceptional support from your three Backroads leaders*. They've got the wheels to deliver it.
*Over 95% of Backroads guests on scheduled departures travel with two or more support vehicles and three Backroads leaders or support staff. Fewer than 5% are on scheduled trips where the small number of guests requires just one van and two leaders to maintain our high service standards, or on select Walking & Hiking Trips where our routes are a combination of loop hikes and out-&-back trails that allow two leaders and fewer vans to provide excellent trail support.
