United States Active & Adventure Tours

It's been more than 40 years since the first Backroads guests hopped on their bikes and set off to discover the American West. And in that time, we've meticulously fine-tuned our original itineraries and uncovered exciting new ones. We invite you to travel with us in the US and discover a new world close to home.
