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.


The majority of the routes on this trip are relatively short, but moderately strenuous with occasional steep sections. The most challenging aspect is the dramatic elevation change. We're often climbing or descending steps and cobblestone paths to reach stunning Mediterranean vistas and charming cliffside towns. While you're free to take your time navigating these routes, you should feel comfortable with some steep ascents and descents. Sturdy, lightweight hiking shoes with robust tread and ample ankle support are recommended. Backroads provides two walking poles per guest.

Trail Support

Our routes through this captivating terrain are a combination of loop hikes and out-and-back trails that begin and end in the same location. In some cases our shuttles will get us to and from the trailheads, but due to the nature of these trails, we usually won't see our vehicles along the route. Ample trail support in the form of water, snacks and encouragement is provided by your Backroads leaders and local guides.
