Butterfield & Robinson
Butterfield & Robinson has been leading biking (and walking) tours since 1966, and remains a heavyweight in the luxury bike tour space. It’s grown to offer more than 100 trips on six continents, including Asia and Africa. Expect small groups and a choice of riding styles, from easy to Type A active. A typical trip includes a mix of cultural exploration on leading bike brands (Bianchi, Cannondale), knowledgeable guides, thoughtfully chosen meals, and top-rated hotels.
Highlight: A newly added week-long excursion through Chile offers a moderate pace through wine country, with plenty of time for wine tasting. (Of note: Puglia, Italy is trending at the moment thanks to flat terrain that’s geared toward all abilities.)
See For Yourself
Dominated by the Andes and the Pacific on a strip of land that runs up South America’s south-western coast, Chile’s mix of European and indigenous influences imbue it with an old-school, European feel—and on our Chile Biking trip, you’ll take it all in on two wheels.
