Bryce Canyon, one of the most striking and unique landscapes in all the world and a favorite stop on many of our Backroads trips through the Southwest, was first settled by Ebenezer Bryce. He was an early pioneer who came west in 1870 and settled in this rugged corner of Utah. Despite the beauty and solitude of such a place, the only comment he's known to have made about this now iconic place is "It's a hell of a place to lose a cow." Here's to the pioneers. To adventurers. To wild places and landscapes waiting for discovery. We tip our hats to you.

With so much beauty in this world, where have you traveled to that's made a lasting impression?

It is easy to express the beauty of Alaska in words but seemingly difficult to articulate the impression this place leaves on the soul.

What does cycling mean to you? Trip Leader Andreas Juchli set out on a winter's day in Copenhagen to discover what cycling means to folks in one of the world's most bike-friendly capitals.

This winter I left my apartment with a camera and the goal of discovering what cycling means to my fellow Copenhageners.

Back in 1996, Regional Expert Jeff Cantarutti was tasked with a dream research assignment at Backroads: creating trips in Italy's majestic Dolomites. Today he's still at it, this time with our first hut-to-hut hiking adventure!

Stunning mountain peaks, fairy-tale valleys, Italian comfort cuisine and cozy accommodations are what hut-to-hut hiking in the Dolomites is all about.

The week of Giving Tuesday continues. Thanks to the generosity of the Backroads community we've raised enough money to buy 10 bikes for World Bicycle Relief! Donations are being matched, dollar for dollar, though December. Help us to make a true and genuine impact in the world! Bicycles in impoverished regions = access to education and opportunity = a better world. So simple, so easy. Let's make a difference!

Begin your trip in "civilization" with classic Canadian Rockies hiking in Banff National Park. Then unleash your sense of adventure, journeying by helicopter to reach a remote and undisturbed wilderness. With privileged access to otherwise inaccessible areas, hike amid lush meadows, pristine lakes, glaciers, waterfalls and towering mountains. Join us on this extraordinary new trip and savor what will undoubtedly be a peak experience!

Story
Tagline
The World's #1 Active Travel Company
Introduction
Backroads has worldwide award-winning Biking, Walking & Hiking and Multisport Tours. We also have specially designed trips for Families and Private groups as well as our Classic Adult Tours.

Explore, discover and connect with the world!

Company Overview:

Tom Hale, Backroads founder and president, built Backroads with his passion for exploring the world’s most fascinating places actively. Thirty years later, each Backroads employee and legions of loyal travelers could not imagine a better way to travel—immersing yourself in the life of a region and exploring hidden corners while enjoying the benefits and enormous satisfaction of traveling under your own power. These are experiences you cannot have behind the wheel of a car, or on a train or a tour bus, or in a few excursions from a cruise ship or a secluded resort. Active travel is, at its heart, a way of connecting more authentically with the world. Sure, Backroads provides superb accommodations and meals, and opportunities you could never arrange on your own. But all of our comprehensive planning and support is aimed at something far simpler: bringing you the immediate, highly personal satisfaction of discovering a new world on your own terms.
