Active Women & Backroads
Backroads has teamed up with KN Karen Neuburger®, a lifestyle brand known for its comfort-inspired apparel and home accessories, to offer Active Women Adventures—a unique women-only travel experience that brings women together for fitness, fun and pampering.

Five Active Women Adventures will be offered between May and September 2006. Girlfriends, sisters, mothers and daughters are encouraged to journey together to select destinations across Europe and North America. The trips feature exhilarating daily activities such as biking, walking or hiking, and time out for shopping, spa treatments and girl talk.

Women are always looking for new and exciting ways to reconnect and spend time with their friends. Active Women Adventures offer women travelers an opportunity to do just that while exploring special corners of the world. These trips are ideal for women’s book clubs, social groups or organizations and reunions of friends or family members.

Backroads Trip Leaders handle all vacation logistics and details, so guests enjoy a carefree travel experience. After a day of engaging activity, they settle into wonderful lodgings and indulge in gourmet cuisine.

Each participant in the Active Women Adventures is also treated to a cozy pair of KN Karen Neuburger® pajamas and lounge socks.
