Beaches, Rain Forest & Volcanoes on Nevis & St. Kitts

  • Enjoy exhilarating hikes through a lush rain forest to viewpoints high above the Caribbean
  • Savor family fun and relaxation at a pair of luxurious tropical retreats
  • Keep an eye out for dolphins as you kayak and snorkel in stunning waters
  • Cap off a bike ride with an authentic West-Indies style lunch on the beach
  • Soak up rich Caribbean lore and culture during visits to intriguing historic sites

There's magic here. Clear blue-green water. Warm white sand. A tropical breeze ruffles the palm trees overhead and carries with it a distant calypso melody. Maybe it's all the exercise. Maybe it's the sunshine. Or perhaps it's the islands themselves. Get your family ready to feel refreshed and in sync. Like magic.

Activity Level & Terrain

If you've ever been on a Backroads trip, you know we pride ourselves in offering a wide variety of activity levels each day so you can choose how much or how little activity you want to do. Although the biking on this Caribbean trip is on the easier side, guests looking for even more adventure can choose some challenging hiking routes, including a hike that can be muddy and includes a section requiring the use of both your hands and feet, with tree roots for handholds. This is a far cry from rock climbing, but still best for those who are game for the challenge of a technical and rugged trail. Activities may also seem more difficult than the route rating suggests due to the hot and humid tropical island climate.

Why Travel with Backroads in Caribbean

Only the Best Hotels

On this Premiere Inn trip, you can count on the best lodgings Caribbean has to offer. In fact, the hotels we've chosen in this region have higher retail room rates than those offered by any other active travel company—even when their trips cost more.

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our Caribbean trips to suit mixed abilities and varied interests—so you can set your own pace, then change things up as the day unfolds. And all guests are free to do the same, traveling together or apart, with no one cramping anyone else's style. Which sounds easy in theory, but it's hard to pull off. Here's more on how we do it.

The Best Leaders in Caribbean

Backroads has the best-qualified people to lead your trip in Caribbean, and our guests back that up, rating our Trip Leaders an average of 9.75 out of 10 for all-around quality of performance. Get the facts (and no fluff) on how we recruit and develop the very best people for your trip.

Get the Most Out of Each Day

Coordinating multiple activities throughout a single day can be tricky, but with Backroads you'll never know it. When you explore Caribbean with us, you switch activities seamlessly without missing a beat. We invented the multisport concept, and we're constantly adding new dimensions and fine-tuning the experience to make it even more enjoyable.

Kids Who Aren't Kids Anymore

Only Backroads offers active trips in Caribbean designed for families with older teens and 20-somethings. Our Family Breakaway trips are aimed at you and the amazingly grownup members of your clan—whether they're almost high school grads, already in college or further along. Find out more in this blog post.

Our Superb Bikes Included

A great bike is obviously critical for a great multisport trip; you don't want to gamble on one that's been sourced locally to trim costs. This trip features our acclaimed Backroads Custom Titanium bikes, expertly tuned and fitted, and included in your trip price. Learn why our titanium bikes are ideal for most riders.

A Second Van When You Need It

Backroads is the only active travel company providing two support vans in Caribbean—because we know it's essential to ensure a truly great travel experience. It doubles our ability to be there when you need us to offer hydration, lighten your load or give you a lift if it's time to take a break. Read more on why two vans make all the difference.

A Variety of Routes Each Day

In Caribbean you head off each morning after choosing among several expertly designed routes—all with detailed directions, mileage and shuttle options. Unlike trips with one fixed daily route (or worse, one guide that everyone's obliged to follow), you're free to enjoy the best of the region at your pace, stopping wherever you want to explore further.

Quality You Can Measure

Since 1979, Backroads Founder and President Tom Hale has shown that staying #1 means constantly evaluating our performance using the best possible source of information: our guests. As we systematically analyze your feedback on our trip consultants, leaders, hotels, meals and on-trip activities, we never stop working to make a great company even better.
