Small Groups, Big Connections

Discover new landscapes and cultures with a wide range of fellow guests—couples, friends and solo travelers. We consistently hear from our guests how much they enjoy the company of other Backroads travelers. Encouraged, supported and inspired by like-minded travelers, they discover extraordinary places in a different way than they would exploring on their own.
