There are few places in the world that are truly unlike anywhere else, but there's definitely nowhere else like New Zealand. It’s easy to see why Hollywood is so in love with this incredible place, filming movies such as The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, The Last Samurai and so many others here. Whether it’s rugged natural beauty, small-town charm or simple living, New Zealand is most definitely a world worth discovering. #NewZealand #BackroadsTravel

Don't ever let anyone tell you that the adventure has to stop when winter arrives. For Backroads in Yellowstone, the fun is just beginning! Dog sleds, geysers, hot springs, snow-covered bison and endless wildlife are just a few of the reasons why this place is truly magical in the winter. Strap on a pair of snowshoes and come experience Yellowstone and the Tetons the Backroads way! #backroadstravel #yellowstone #tetons

Have you ever been to the Hawaiian island of Lanai? Chances are you haven't, because not many people have. Just a short ferry ride from Maui, Lanai has managed to remain a quiet and secluded escape among the more visited surrounding islands. Lanai's miles of empty beaches and one sleepy plantation town offer a uniquely peaceful escape for travelers looking to relax and rejuvenate in paradise. We spend two nights here at the luxurious 4 Seasons Resort on our Backroads Maui & Lanai Trips and, to be honest, we never want to leave. Looking for a new incredible winter getaway? You just found it. #paradise #lanai #hawaii

These are the trips that will get you here!

What is the "iPhone Effect" and why is it impacting so many families in today's world? As your kids head back to school and are once again fully immersed in an overly digital culture, it's more important than ever to find ways to form genuine connections with your family. Here's some insight from the Huffington Post, written by Backroads Guest Erika Keswin, about discovering non-digital ways to bond with her family. #guestperspective #iphoneeffect #optoutside

Backroads Destination of the Week! We were already in love with the island of Bali even before TripAdvisor just named it the "World's Top Destination." There are so many reasons this place is special! Part of the “Coral Triangle,” Bali has some of the greatest marine species biodiversity on the planet, which makes for some epic Backroads “shipwreck” snorkeling. Bali’s “cultural landscape” has also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site – specifically its picturesque rice terraces and water temples. From the pristine tropical beaches to the market villages and beyond, Bali is worthy of a spot on every traveler’s must-do list. The perfect escape for this winter? Definitely. #bali #tropicalescape #backroadstravel

This is the trip! https://www.backroads.com/trips/BBLI/bali-biking-tour?p=D358

Today is the 101st Birthday of the National Park Service! Home to some of our greatest Backroads adventures, we're so grateful for these incredible national treasures. Have you seen the sunset over Bryce Canyon? Or watched the orange lava glow rise into the night sky from Hawaii's Kilauea Crater? Here are a few of our very favorite "Must Do" National Park Experiences! #nationalparkservice #nps100 #backroadstravel

Every Backroads Leader is often asked "What is your favorite trip?" For some it can be a hard question to answer. For Erica Hausfeld, it's very easy. New Zealand. "Exotically distant and wild, culturally charming, and surprisingly familiar and foreign at the same time." And that's just the start. #NewZealand #notaustralia #Backroadsblog #kiwilife

Backroads Destination of the Week! From September to April, this Backroads journey is one for the record books. Picture this: Swim, kayak and snorkel through the unrivaled biodiversity of the Galapagos Islands before adventuring to the great snow-capped peaks and volcanoes of the Andes. Then finish off the journey with 4 days spent cruising down the legendary Amazon River aboard the Anakonda, the only luxury ship in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. Have you ever dreamed of walking among giant tortoises, squirrel monkeys, toucans and iguanas? This is the trip that will get you here. Who's up for the adventure? #Ecuador #amazonriver #backroadstravel
