Backroads Trip Leaders

Do you have a memorable leader from a past trip? Message us on Instagram or Facebook to let us know what made them special and nominate them to be our next featured leader! And follow us on Instagram and Facebook as we regularly feature our leaders in 2017.

As anyone who has been on a Backroads trip knows, our leaders are the spark that turns a fantastic trip into something magical. Without their tireless energy, creative minds and true dedication to their role as exceptional leaders, we wouldn't be anywhere close to the company we are today. We want to give you an opportunity to meet two great leaders who were first introduced to Backroads as guests. They were so inspired by their Backroads experience that they later joined our leader ranks and now share their passions with our guests in all the beautiful corners of the world. Keep an eye out for them on your next Backroads trip!
