Comments about Dalmatian Coast Family Multisport Adventure Tour:

Croatia is extremely beautiful. The hikes and bike rides and sea kayaking were all wonderful. The food choices were exceptional -- great meal after great meal. As usual, the tour leaders were fantastic -- personable, knowledgeable, great with the kids. This was my 6th Backroads trip (5th with my family), and it may have been the best one (which is a high bar!)

Comments about Dalmatian Coast Family Multisport Adventure Tour:

Once again, Backroads provided an amazing vacation for our entire family! Croatia is incredibly beautiful, and I can't imagine a better way to see it. The biking was phenomenal (tough, but fun), the hiking and sea kayaking were great, and the boat transport from island to island was perfect. Our guides were fantastic - although I think a few of the girls were disappointed to hear that Ales has a girlfriend!! Can't wait to see which Backroads trip we'll pick for next year.

A outstanding family trip overall

Comments about Dalmatian Coast Family Multisport Adventure Tour:

The region is breathtaking and this trip had a very nice mix of active time and downtime. We were very lucky with our August week in Croatia and we did not experience the reputed heat. We were well supported by the leaders throughout the trip, most importantly when my daughter "wiped out" when cycling downhill on a hairpin turn (the support van arrived immediately and it had all the first aid equipment we needed). We were treated to a very informative geopolital discussion of the region by Alina while on our long sail. The hikes and the coastline biking were memorable, as was the snorkeling stop on our kayak trip where we spied an octopus! We all enjoyed this trip and have recommended it to friends.

Why Travel with Backroads in Dalmatian Coast

You Couldn't Plan This Online

On the Dalmatian Coast we’ve tapped into years of experience – and our network of local friends – to design a trip you’d have huge difficulty creating on your own. And why would you want to? We link three amazing islands with a range of fun activities designed for all abilities and interests. And throughout your trip we work behind the scenes to make sure the bikes, boats and shuttles all run like clockwork – so you can focus on simply enjoying your family adventure.

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our Dalmatian Coast 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.

Plenty of Kids on Your Trip

It may be hard to imagine being on a family trip with no other families on it—but it happens regularly with some companies. On a Backroads Family Adventure there are typically several families on each departure, creating more opportunities for your kids to make new friends as they try fun things together – which is a big part of the experience.

The Value of Casual Inn Trips

In addition to the ideal balance of comfort and hospitality in our choice of lodgings, this Casual Inns trip includes nearly all of your meals, plus everything from cocktail receptions to the best snacks along the road. So there's rarely a need to reach for your wallet – we've got you covered.

Experts with Secrets to Share

In choosing the ideal experts to enrich your travel experience, we look for people with a wealth of local knowledge, but also the ability to convey their insights in English. Too often travelers find themselves smiling politely, not quite understanding what they're being told. Our experts share intriguing facts, anecdotes and inside stories that stay with you forever.

The Best Leaders in Dalmatian Coast

Backroads has the best-qualified people to lead your trip in Dalmatian Coast, 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.

A Great Trip for Teens

This Family Adventure, with its blend of challenging activities and cool places to explore, is ready to erase the doubtful looks of the toughest travel critics around: teenagers. We're not saying there won't be a single eye-rolling response (or the odd WhatsApp exchange with the gang back home), but this trip has plenty to keep teens in the moment and part of the family.

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.

We Live in the Neighborhood

Our Trip Leaders in Dalmatian Coast live in the area and are deeply engaged in their communities, giving them unique inside knowledge they're happy to share in making your experience that much richer. They'll introduce you to people, customs and parts of town you'd likely never encounter on your own—and teach you a few local phrases to help break the ice.

A Second Van When You Need It

Backroads is the only active travel company providing two support vans in Dalmatian Coast—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.

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 Dalmatian Coast 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.

Our Cultural Roots Run Deep

Thanks to our extensive connections in Dalmatian Coast, Backroads takes you off the beaten track and deep into the region's culture in ways that traditional travel can never hope to do. We know the people and their customs, the legacy of art and architecture, the complex history and politic—and if we're not sure, our amazing local experts can fill in the blanks.

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 Dalmatian Coast 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.
