Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Easygoing Adventure

This is a Level 1–2 trip, meaning the activities are easygoing and designed to allow us to take it slow and soak up the beauty of the region. Each day we embark on an active adventure, but the amount of time spent in the saddle and on the trails is less than the typical Backroads trip. We've paired our core activities with ones that are suited to this destination, such as kayaking and snorkeling. The level of these activities, combined with plenty of downtime to relax and take advantage of the resorts and beaches, result in the ideal way to experience Key West.


Long shuttles on Days 1 and 3 (sometimes made longer with traffic) allow us to cover the highlights of this dynamic region.

Peak Season Crowds

The Keys have their share of crowds and traffic, especially over peak holiday and spring break months. While we always aim to get off the beaten path, during certain times of the year traffic delays and slow service are unavoidable. Not to worry—we've built plenty of time into this itinerary to account for the relaxed pace, which the locals charmingly call "Keys Disease!"

Weather-Dependent Activities

Water activities in the Keys are weather-dependent. Snorkeling can be canceled in the winter months due to low visibility. In the case of inclement weather, alternative activities are available.

A Place Like No Other

The Florida Keys are a truly unique destination teeming with fascinating history, vibrant character and quirky culture. On this journey expect to see everything from pristine beaches, out-of-this-world sunsets and mangrove forests to cruise ships, tackle shops and t-shirt stands.
