Dolce Tempo: Easygoing by Design
Set your own easygoing pace on a new kind of journey that explores a region up close and in depth.
Easier than our other trips, but still wonderfully active—perfect for first timers. A vacation like all Backroads trips that's tailored, not packaged. With Backroads Trip Leaders taking care of the details. A private van to support you along the way. Local experts sharing secrets. The comfort of an exclusive resort—without the walls or crowds. And the freedom to choose how each day unfolds, whether it's a relaxed adagio pace or something a bit uptempo. Welcome to active travel the way you want to play it: Dolce Tempo.
Dolce Tempo itineraries are designed with a light touch. Glide along on your e-bike as it smooths out the rolling landscape. Walk historic footpaths through peaceful countryside. Or choose among various multi-adventure options we adapt to fit your taste and style.
Each day offers you an array of possibilities, expertly curated to make the most of a region, whether that means discovering little-known gems with one of our local experts or just relaxing by the château pool with a good book. It's your vacation, tuned to your pace and schedule—not someone else's.
Relax in Style
Handpicked hotels offering gracious service and the very best of local hospitality. Superb regional cuisine seasoned with anecdotes from the chef. Experienced, creative Trip Leaders looking after your every need. This is your chance to truly escape the usual pace of life.
Tailored to You
We make a great trip personal. Translating your questions to the vintner. Arranging a shipment from the artist's studio. Popping up along the road with a fresh e-bike battery or a lift back to the hotel. Immersing you in unique experiences (not lineups for excursions). We think of everything—so you don't have to.
