Summer’s here and a great summer family adventure are any BACKROADS Tour!

We embarked on our first “glamping” trip a few summers back to the Great Tetons and Yellowstone Park- I wanted to take my kids camping, but didn’t want the “work” of it all. We wanted to sleep in tents have cookouts and campfires but not schlep our gear. I wanted to travel to a great destination and not fear that I would miss something great about that location that only a local would know. So I called the PROS! BACKROADS was the BEST choice! They offer activities, of hiking, biking, kayaking, nature walks, star gazing and fine dining and white glove service! With backroads you get three guides, always small groups, two vans and smart, engaging, knowledgeable, caring and endlessly enthusiastic staff. The Trip Leaders are renowned for their ability to transform a great vacation into the kind of inspiring and even life-changing experience you could never orchestrate on your own. With the average guest-to-leader ratio of better than 6:1, you can count on enjoying a superb level of attentive personal service.

We arrived in Jackson hole Wyoming for our initial meet and greet our bags were swept away and we got right on our personalized mountain bikes – we were off to start our adventure and as each kid or adult dropped off, the van pulled over and each hopped in as we went on! This trip is great for any “effort” level and no one misses out! We arrived to our campsite to find white table clothes, camp fire, a game of frisbee, our tents and sleeping bags already set up, and ongoing rides to warm, clean restrooms with our own fresh towels! This was GLAMPING!

After a fabulous dinner and camp fire stories, off to bed to be awaken by her sweet smell of homemade breakfast! – The food is AMAZING – each meal and snack truly is! Then off again for another adventure leaving the rest of the crew to clean up and move camps – and our stuff! -You’ll never lift a finger! This adventure went on and never a dull moment of biking, hiking and kayaking! We were educated, well traveled, we saw so much and made such long lasting friendships it is no wonder why people choose Backroads over and over again! You won’t find someone who has only done ONE BACKROADS TRIP!

They are Global and offer every adventure level from camping, to casual inns or premier inns with adventures of wine tasting to gourmet trips!

So if you are active, retired, traveling with family or groups or solo and single! BACKROADS have got you covered and loved!


The Destination Angels give BACKROADS two wings up!
