Dolce Tempo is the Backroads program of easygoing e-biking, walking and multi-adventure trips. Its easygoing design is perfect for clients who enjoy e-biking, and are new to active travel and want a balance between activities and leisure time. 

Go Private! Guests may join scheduled departure dates or take over a date to make it their own private trip with just 8+ guests. Call Backroads for pricing and details. 

Target Audience:
Backroads is suitable for couples, solo travelers or groups of friends traveling together, and families with kids as young as age 4 and adult kids well into their 30’s still traveling with their parents. Guests generally range between 45-65 years old, but some are well into their 70s and 80s, too.  

Target affluent clients in your database who are active couples, single travelers, small ship cruisers, weekend walkers, outdoor enthusiasts, yogis, tennis players, wine enthusiasts, foodies, golfers, skiers, e-bikers, and avid hikers and bikers. Backroads offers various mileage options each day, so guests do as much or as little as they like at their own pace! It’s not “follow-the-leader” and guests don’t have to keep up with anyone else.
