Berkeley, CA (March 28, 2019) Backroads continues to innovate and lead in active and adventure travel with even more family trips this summer to hundreds of coveted destinations. Backroads family trips are uniquely designed for distinct youth age ranges, with activities and routes tailored to families with younger kids (aged 4-12), families with teens and older kids (aged 9-19), and families with older teens and 20-somethings (aged 17+).

Offering Biking, Walking & Hiking and Multi-Adventure Tours around the world, Backroads runs family trips to popular summer destinations including national parks like Yosemite, Glacier, Yellowstone, the Tetons, Bryce, Zion and the Grand Canyon in addition to European favorites like the Dalmatian Coast, Iceland and Switzerland. Trips are designed so families can enjoy time together as well as independently, parents can connect with other parents and kids can have fun with new friends of similar ages during kids-only activities that keep them engaged and entertained.

With over 30 years of experience creating and leading trips for families, Backroads is the only company today offering distinct trips designed for families at a particular life stage. By creating trips for kids in specific age groups, Backroads is responding to a growing demand for active family travel, as well as requests from repeat guests who travel with Backroads as their kids grow.

"We understand the unique dynamics at play when families travel, from that first real summer vacation when kids are old enough to enjoy it, to the milestone trips that expose older kids and teens to new cultures and experiences," said Backroads Founder and President, Tom Hale. "We know that family interests and fitness levels vary and life stages and ages play a key role. We design our trips with this in mind."

Backroads family trips include fun activities and rich cultural experiences tailored to families and kids. On family adventures in Italy, parents can select the biking or hiking route that suits them while kids learn how to make pizza in a hands-on cooking class. In South Africa, Tanzania, or Ecuador's Gal√°pagos, families can witness incredible wildlife in their natural habitat. Whether hiking in a national park, sea kayaking along the Dalmatian Coast, learning to surf in Spain's Basque Country or riding horseback in Iceland, on Backroads trips, kids of all ages experience one-of-a-kind adventures.
