Can you believe we're halfway through 2022?
That means it definitely not too early to plan some fun active travels for next year. In fact, you better get on it, or you risk missing out.
Backroads, one of our favorite active- and adventure-travel companies, has developed new small-group tours in Mexico's Baja California, Vancouver and Washington's San Juan Islands and more destinations that we think are worth considering.
Additionally, you could dive into their great new offerings in the Carolinas, Santa Barbara Wine Country, Italy's Dolomites to Lake Garda and Sardinia.
Backroads specializes in the distinctive accommodations, bucket-list destinations, authentic cultural experiences and outdoor adventure that people want right now. To meet rising demand for small-group travel, especially as the world continues to reopen since the pandemic, Backroads added itineraries and departures during the spring and fall seasons in many locations, including Europe.
Backroads is the only active travel company to segment trips for families with kids into three distinct age groups: Families with Teens and Kids (best for ages 9-plus), Families with Older Teens and 20s (one or more kids age 17-plus) and Families with Adult Kids 20s and Beyond (one or more kids age 20-plus). In 2023, Backroads is also launching new trips for families in Yosemite and Provence.
Check out some of the best new Backroads trips for 2023:
Bike Tours in Puglia, Santa Barbara and Sardinia
Multi-Adventure Tours in Baja California and the Carolinas
Walking & Hiking Tours in the Dolomites & Lake Garda, and Vancouver & San Juan Islands

"We're seeing huge post-pandemic demand for small-group adventure travel, especially among families," said Backroads founder and president Tom Hale. "Next year, we're introducing more destinations, more age-segmented family trips, more departures and have expanded when we run our trips to take advantage of good weather and fewer crowds in the spring and fall seasons."
