Family Adventure Vacations for Teens & Kids

Biking, Walking & Hiking and Multi-Adventure Tours

Backroads Family Trips are fun, thoughtfully designed adventures that feature stimulating activities for parents and kids of all ages. We offer family adventure vacations around the world, and whether you’re biking past castles, hiking beneath waterfalls or wildlife-spotting from a kayak, you’ll be amazed at just how much fun they are. Connect with your kids on these unforgettable family adventure tours and discover the magic of active travel together, enjoying smiles for miles aboard a bicycle or hiking unforgettable trails. 

Our family adventure vacations balance quality time together and apart. We plan adults-only dinners, so that the grown-ups can relax and decompress, as well as kid-specific activities so the younger generation can bond and enjoy the company of their peers. And with family adventure tours designed for three different age groups of kids, they’ll enjoy the companionship of kids their age while you relax. For family bike trips or family hiking vacations, it doesn’t get better than Backroads.
