What is active travel?

For us, it’s the joy of exploring the world actively, under one’s own power and in the company of other adventurers. We believe one of the best ways to explore new landscapes is from the seat of a bike or from a trail, enjoying the best of a region at your own pace. Since 1979, Backroads has set the standard for active travel with expert trip design, superb hotels, the very best leaders, multiple support vans and incomparable service and flexibility as well as our fun-loving guests. We offer biking, hiking and multi-adventures around the world. And bring our unique active approach to the traditionally sedentary worlds of cruises and safaris. From easygoing to avid—give us your definition of active and we'll deliver an amazing experience.
