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

  • Enjoy exhilarating hikes through lush rain forests to viewpoints high above the Caribbean
  • Adults savor pure relaxation at a pair of luxurious tropical retreats while kids play in the sun
  • Kayak and snorkel in the stunning waters of the Caribbean
  • 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

What's the opposite of boring? Snorkeling with angelfish. Bike rides in the sun. Games on the beach with new friends. Look at that waterfall! Is that a monkey? 1, 2, 3… cannonball! Blue-green surf. Kids having the time of their lives while adults get pampered at luxurious hotels. The opposite of boring? A trip to Nevis and St. Kitts.

This was our first Backroads trip and also our first major vacation with the kids and couldn't have been more pleased. We were excited but unsure what to expect. Would the kids have fun? Would the trip be able to accommodate our varying interests and athletic skill levels, which ranged from experienced hiker/100-mi cyclist to couch potato? What would it be like traveling with a group of other families? Very quickly it became clear that we had nothing to worry about. The trip was well-planned, well-managed, flexible, interesting, fun, active, AND relaxing. We loved exploring the natural beauty of St. Kitt's and Nevis as well as local culture, history, and cuisine. Everyone in our family came away happy. Sign us up for the next trip!

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 requires the use of both your hands and feet, with tree roots for handholds. This is a far cry from any sort of rock climbing, but still best for those who are game for the fun 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

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.

We Stand Behind Our Trips

Most companies' trips in Caribbean are run by local operators. At Backroads we manage our own trips; we would never subcontract your precious vacation to a third party. So as you enjoy the support of your seasoned Trip Leaders, along with our expert local guides and drivers, you have the confidence of knowing we're with you every step of the way.

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.

Like You, We're Family Experts

At Backroads we've honed our expertise in active family travel over many years and a lot of trips. We host at least 20 times more family guests than any other active company, so we're constantly gaining new insights that make our trips even better. Detailed planning, behind-the scenes logistics, unrivaled support from three Trip Leaders—all backed by a team that proudly creates the kind of experiences we'd want to share with our own families.

We Invented the Multisport Trip

After 30 years of creating Backroads Multisport Adventures, our trip designers know how to blend the perfect balance of biking and hiking with other activities to showcase the best of a region. And then they arrange the seamless transitions that would be so hard to orchestrate on your own—adding dimensions to your trip that are exciting, inspiring and just plain fun.

Custom-Designed Bikes for Kids

Only Backroads provides bikes specifically designed for younger riders. Find out more information on all of our kids' bikes and optional accessories. And check out Tom Hale's blog post about biking with your kids.

Tweens, Teens and the Rest

The activities on Backroads Family Adventures are designed with all of you in mind. We've got easier routes designed for younger kids' abilities – and attention spans—and great longer options scaled to fit the tastes and energy levels of tweens, teens and adults. To narrow down the best choices for your family, take a look at our age guidelines.

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.

Time Together, Time Apart

Backroads is the leader in designing trips that ensure everyone, young and young-at-heart alike, has an amazing time. Your Backroads Family Adventure balances family activities with diversions designed exclusively for the kids—giving the adults a welcome break from making decisions, other than choosing whether to explore a few more miles or just enjoy each other's company. A family vacation where everyone gets to relax, recharge and have fun – what a concept!

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.

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.

Leaders Focused on Families

When everyone's together, there's lots going on; and when kids' and adults' priorities diverge, it can seem like two different trips. That's why our Family Adventures in Caribbean have three Trip Leaders—including a dedicated Kids Activity Expert who regularly takes younger travelers off to do their own thing. Other companies try to get by with two leaders; we step up and do it right. For more on our family focus, check this out.

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.
