Walk the World with Backroads

As you roam the countryside on a walking tour or hiking vacation—slowly, leisurely—be prepared for a sensory rush. Smell the sea before it comes into view. Marvel at silky meadows woven with wildflowers. Hear the cacophony of wildlife in the jungle—and the absence of sound in the desert. There's no glass between you and the world—this is it!

With over 30 years of experience, Backroads believes in crafting walking tours and hiking trips that allow you to embrace the world around you. What transforms our walking and hiking trips into vacations of a lifetime is our unwavering commitment to excellence. A passion for bringing you the best can be seen in everything we do, from the leaders we hire to the luxury accommodations we select to the routes we uncover.

All our walking tours offer several route options so that you can walk as much or as little as you like. Every Backroads trip has options for all fitness levels and abilities. Care for a walk? We do...come join us in exploring the world, one step at a time!
