Berkeley, CA (February 5, 2020) — Backroads, the leader in active travel, today announced new trips in Central and South America with departures to destinations in Costa Rica, Cuba, Peru and Chile. The company also rolled out additional departures for families traveling with older teens and adult kids in their 20s & Beyond. Backroads will be running special Chile and Argentina Biking and Multi-Adventure Tours for viewing the total solar eclipse on December 14, 2020—a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

New in 2020, Backroads is expanding its South American offerings with a Chile Patagonia & Fjords Cruise Walking & Hiking Tour. Visiting the popular yet hard to reach Chilean Patagonia Fjords, Cape Horn and Torres del Paine National Park, the trip offers unique wildlife and glacier viewing, epic hikes and tours of historical sites in Wulaia Bay, once visited by Charles Darwin. Guests can experience three trips in one while living aboard the Australis, a state-of-the-art expedition ship and staying at Hotel Las Torres and The Singular Patagonia.

“Winter in the Northern Hemisphere means summer in Central and South America and a great time to go on a Backroads active vacation,” said Backroads Founder and President, Tom Hale. “For families with Older Teens & 20s or adult kids 20s & Beyond, we’ve expanded our offering with even more trips and a chance to explore areas like Machu Picchu, Chile’s Volcanoes and Lakes District and Cuba’s countryside.”

“Backroads Trip Leaders and Field Staff are the best in the business,” said Tom Hale, Founder and President of Backroads. “We’re looking for a wide variety of people, interests and skillsets for the 2020 travel season. If you think you’ve got what it takes to work for Backroads, we’d love to hear from you.”

Several of Backroads Latin America tours will take place during the total solar eclipse of 2020. Guests wanting to experience the Americas and the eclipse simultaneously should consider booking the following trips: Argentina Patagonia Lake District Multi-Adventure Tour, Chile Bike Tour and Chile Multi-Adventure Tour.
