Backroads FAQs

Just about everyone. There are trips for solo travelers, friends, couples and families (with different trips catering to families with teens and younger kids, plus “kids” in their 20s and beyond). Backroads can also arrange private trips.

Absolutely not! Backroads caters to everyone — and every activity level. On any trip, there are always route options with varying degrees of difficulty. Plus, if any activity ever becomes too much, you can always take one of their handy support vehicles back to the hotel (or spa), without any shame. This is your vacation, after all. (If you’re looking for something with more of a slower pace, their Dolce Vita trips are a great option.)

Backroads’ list of destinations is vast — they run trips on all seven continents. Wherever you choose to go (Oman, Thailand, the Canadian Rockies, Puglia…), there are no wrong decisions.

Backroads believes strongly in stellar accommodations. From countryside castles and luxe lodges to seaside retreats and hidden gems, all of the properties included on a Backroads itinerary have been rigorously vetted, and many are members of Relais & Châteaux, Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Four Seasons and other prestigious collections.
