Highlights
  • Explore the reborn Dalmatian Coast by bike, with breathtaking sapphire sea views
  • Island-hop along the sun-drenched Adriatic and swim in hidden coves
  • Gain insight into Croatia's fascinating history and culture
  • The freshest seafood and local cuisine
  • Dubrovnik, an architectural masterpiece with turrets, spires and tiled roofs

245 days of yearly sunshine. Sapphire waters and whitewashed villages. Marvel at sublime Adriatic views while you pedal. Then be a part of the view as you boat between islands. It's as relaxing as the Caribbean, as historic as Venice. It's a destination reborn, yet it still feels like, as the Croatians say, The Mediterranean as it once was.

This was our third Backroads trip. It was a 10 day bike trip on the south island of New Zealand. Amazing! Very well organized! Great guides! All the details are carefully taken care of! Even when the unexpected happened (an earthquake!), our guides had a bus replace the train trip that was cancelled (due to damage to the railroad tracks) and it was done quickly. I would recommend Backroads to all my active friends :)

I've taken two Backroads camping trips with my teenage son. It's our summer bonding time and has proved to be a better experience than I could have imagined. Highly recommended. Everything is done for you except riding the bikes! We've been to the San Juan Islands and Yellowstone/Tetons. This year, hopefully Alaska!

I recently had the most amazing experience on the Backroads Singles-Solos Wine Country to San Francisco Biking trip. I'm not a biker but everyone was supportive of each other regardless of experience level. The routes took us through some of the most beautiful roads in the Bay Area. My favorite part was the food as there were freshly-prepared meals three times a day. A+.
