Pacific Coast, Epic Redwoods, Sonoma & Napa Valleys

  • Pedal amid vineyard-laced hills, hike beneath towering redwoods and picnic on a mountaintop
  • Taste world-class vintages at wineries along your route
  • Be awed by the diverse natural beauty of Point Reyes National Seashore
  • See Michelin stars twinkle as you dine at Calistoga's wonderful Solbar restaurant
  • Experience the charm of historic Wine Country towns and luxuriate at three of our favorite hotels

The Wine Country is bigger than life. Sunlight filters through the quiet majesty of giant redwoods. Endless blue sky meets endless blue sea at Point Reyes. A vast patchwork of vineyards decorate the Mayacamas Mountains. Exquisite wine. Michelin-starred cuisine. Epic biking and hiking. Sometimes, bigger is better.

Itinerary

Day 1 Flower-filled meadows, luxuriant forests, rugged beaches and panoramic ocean vistas await on our hike at Point Reyes National Seashore Views of Tomales Bay are even more spectacular when enjoyed with the region's delectable oysters.

Day 2 Bike along the Sonoma coast past steep bluffs and wind-scoured beaches Veering inland, follow the Russian River, perhaps stopping in quaint Duncans Mills for a coffee and pastry Sounds fade away when you enter Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve, the serene setting for our gourmet picnic and hike among thousand-year-old redwoods—the tallest living things on Earth.

Day 3 Experience the beauty of the Mayacamas Mountains as you hike through grassy creek-lined valleys, rolling hills and sweeping cliff-edge vistas  Gather for a mountaintop picnic and wine tasting The afternoon is yours—perhaps opt to indulge in a massage at an award-winning spa or join in an olive oil tasting.

Day 4 Cycle from Healdsburg through idyllic countryside blanketed with vineyards, apple orchards and forests  As you ride through Alexander Valley, one—or two or three—acclaimed wineries may tempt you to stop in for a taste.

Days 5-6 Pedal through rolling foothills on the Silverado Trail into the heart of Napa Valley Spin on tranquil oak-lined roads past acres of vineyards and dozens of noteworthy wineries The stars are out tonight—Michelin stars at chef Massimo Falsini's incredible Solbar restaurant Keep an eye out for peregrine falcons as you hike a stunning trail along a rocky volcanic ridge overlooking Calistoga and the Napa Valley.

We've been exploring the scenic routes of California's wine country since 1980. And there's nothing we love more than introducing guests to our favorite spots, from boutique wineries to acclaimed restaurants, from world-famous vineyards to towering redwoods and rugged coastline. And over the years, we've found what you like best—the option to keep biking or hiking… or return for a relaxing massage. The choice is yours in this vintage Backroads destination.

Traffic & Terrain

Because the Wine Country is a popular destination, some of our biking routes are in high demand with cyclists and drivers alike—particularly in Napa Valley, and specifically on the Silverado Trail. In late summer/early fall during the Crush, grape juice tankers and oak-barrel toting trucks are in abundance; remember to use extra caution when sharing the road with any motor vehicles, especially during the harvest season, and always keep to the right when biking! With the occasional section of rough roads, it's also important to be on the lookout for broken pavement and potholes.

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our California Wine Country 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.

Only the Best Hotels

On this Premiere Inn trip, you can count on the best lodgings California Wine Country 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.

More Leaders to Support You

On our California Wine Country trips we have an extra leader supporting you along the road and trail—for a total of three, compared to the industry standard two. So we can be in more places at once, giving personal attention to guests traveling at their own pace. Here's more on our Trip Leaders.

A Second Van When You Need It

Backroads is the only active travel company providing two support vans in California Wine Country—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.

We Live in the Neighborhood

Our Trip Leaders in California Wine Country 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.

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 California Wine Country 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.

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.
