Backroads announced today 38 brand-new itineraries for the 2018 season, expanding its offerings to include more exciting destinations, new routes and luxury accommodations, more family adventures and even more trips in best-selling regions. Travel in South America is growing, as the company rolls out a new Bike Tour in Chile’s Lakes & Volcanoes District and a Multi-Adventure Trip in Brazil. New trips in stunning European destinations, including a Walking & Hiking Trip in Scotland, Italian, French & Swiss Alps Hut-to-Hut Hiking, and two-country journey in Slovenia & Croatia are sure to sell quickly as flights to Europe drop in price. Guests will also experience brand-new itineraries in ever-popular Alaska, New Mexico, Iceland, France’s Provence, Spain’s Costa Brava and Morocco.
Family travel has also been on the rise, with the company seeing rapid growth over the past three years. In 2018 Backroads is introducing even more trips just for families. Now, families with older teens and 20s, or teens and younger siblings can hike, bike and adventure their way through Iceland’s fjords, Spain’s Pyrenees, Alaska’s Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, and from Germany’s Bavaria to Austria’s Alps, or Slovenia to Croatia.
This year, for the first time ever, Backroads offered a small Ocean Cruise Trip in Iceland—the adventure was hugely popular and had some of the highest ratings to date from guests who enjoyed living aboard a ship while exploring on land each day. The company is planning to add even more departures and destinations for 2018.
“For almost 40 years now we’ve been taking guests on active travel adventures across the globe,” said Tom Hale, Founder and President of Backroads. “Every year, our trip designers research the best locations, find the nicest hotels, plan immersive biking and hiking routes so that our guests can enjoy phenomenal trips in the more than 50 countries where Backroads travels. In 2018, we’ve done it again with an incredible lineup of new trip departures and new destinations to explore actively.”
