• Explore the reborn Dalmatian Coast, gaining insight into Croatia's history and culture
  • Island-hop and swim in the sun-drenched Adriatic
  • Dubrovnik, an architectural masterpiece with an impressive fortified wall
  • Hike amid olive groves, undulating fields and jagged cliffs with sapphire sea views
  • Indulge in the freshest seafood and local cuisine

It's usually a choice. Do you choose a destination with history, culture, and natural beauty or do you go for sun, sea, and a laid-back island atmosphere? The Dalmatian Coast is both. Catch rays on the deck of our private boat, then experience the Venetian-influenced architecture of Hvar Town. Enjoy a fresh Adriatic bounty at lunch with locals, then hit the trail and explore. Visit vestiges of a 16th-century monastery, then take to the waters of secluded rocky coves. On and on you'll go from "enlightenment" to relaxation. When you come to the Dalmatian Coast, you'll enjoy two of the best vacations you've ever had.

This was the Canadian Rockies Cycling trip in the year 2000. It was a while ago so i can only remember a few details, but it was a fabulous cycling trip where I not only learned so much more about biking (it was my first ever cycling trip and I just started training for it 2-3 months before), had wonderful and super fun guides, magnificent views, fun places to stay, great food, and I met my husband on that trip! I have a friend who I met on another trip and recommended this one to her. She went on he exact same Backroads trip a few years after us and met HER husband on it! Both of us still married!
