These vacation options include something for every type of active traveler, including the company's popular Dolce Tempo trips. These are easygoing options for people looking for opportunities to get outside and enjoy hiking, e-biking and multi-adventuring at a more relaxed pace.

"There's an incredible amount of pent-up demand out there, and we're seeing unprecedented interest in active travel for both this year and next," said Tom Hale, Backroads founder and president. "We're excited to return to doing what we love most -- exploring the world actively."
Backroads Dolce Tempo trips give travelers a relaxed, flexible pace. The trips are ideal for people who are looking for a great way to get out and see the destinations actively but don't have the inclination or desire to put themselves through the punishingly long days of hiking or biking that they might have when they were a bit younger. These tours are a new favorite for Backroads fans, and nearly all the 2021 departures have already sold out. With this segment rapidly growing in popularity, Backroads announced more than 100 new Dolce Tempo departures in 2022, including trips in the Canadian Rockies, Sweden to Denmark, England's Cotswolds, Portugal, a Danube River Cruise E-bike Tour and new departures around the United States.
In addition to hundreds of new departures, Backroads is launching many new family trips, including 20s & Beyond and Older Teens & 20s itineraries.
We are impressed that the company is able to create such a marvelous cross-section of active trips, so that families, friends and groups can always find something special to do when they explore the world actively.
