    Active Ocean & River Cruises

Experience the Backroads way of exploring actively—on a Biking, Walking & Hiking or Multi-Adventure, in combination with small luxury ocean or river ships. Unpack once. Explore multiple regions. Travel with best-in-class Backroads leaders. And best of all… go at your pace and connect with locals and the region in a way that no other cruise experience can.

This is a new active approach to water travel on small luxury ships. No waiting in long lines. No crowded tour buses. No superficial visits to mass tourist attractions. Backroads is the pioneer in active travel and we have the experience, resources and onshore staff to create a unique adventure—even when the weather or sailing conditions may cause a change of plans.
