Here at B&R headquarters, there are a few things we pride ourselves on: we never fill our own glass before another’s, we cut a mean rug on the dancefloor (and occasionally the table, or the top of the B&R van), and as proud as we are of our past, we’re constantly looking to the future.

So we’re thrilled to share our 2017 Trip Portfolio with you. Whether you want to glide atop Tuscan hills on an e-bike, traverse Patagonia’s glaciers or taste your way through Southeast Asia, our 2017 lineup offers a flavour of adventure for every palate.

NEW Scheduled Trips

Rhine River Cruise Biking

 

Discover the famed Rhine River from the splendid S.S. Antoinette, exploring the terraced vineyards and stately cities of Switzerland, Germany, France and the Netherlands. Travelling by both ship and bicycle, it’s the ideal combination of class, comfort and intimate experience.

Bermuda America’s Cup

 

Beyond the screaming 50-foot catamarans almost flying by, the collection of volcanic islands that make up Bermuda have much to offer. Join us for a week of cruising, cheering, and relaxing, as the world’s best sailors compete for yachting’s biggest prize.

Sonoma & Napa
Biking

 

Northern California combines rolling landscapes of tidy vineyards with backdrops of golden hillocks, making it a great place for bikers! Embark on scenic routes winding through small towns and meandering walking trails, all just a few hours from bustling San Francisco.

Japan Walking

 

On this epic walking journey, we’ve gone out of our way to ensure you experience some of the most breathtaking walking trails that Japan has to offer. Let time stand still as you marvel in the soothing peace of this awe-inspiring country.

Japan Biking With
Arthur Golden

 

Join author, Arthur Golden, along with George and Martha Butterfield on a special one time departure, as they celebrate the 20th anniversary of Arthur’s bestselling book, Memoirs of a Geisha—and what better way to celebrate than to return to the source of the inspiration?

Sicily Walking

 

Two nights in Baroque Noto, the “Ingenious City,” where legend says Hercules himself went for R&R. Three days in the shadow of Mount Etna, with an unforgettable hike into its bleak, volcanic beauty. Vibrant, bustling Catania. And a Michelin-starred surprise as reward.

Cuba Active Expedition

 

To see what makes Cuba tick, we immerse ourselves with our local friends. (Is there any other way?) Join us on our people-to-people journey as we bike, swim, cook, eat, play music and dance our way around this magical island. Experience Cuba before it changes forever.

CUBA-button

Bavarian Lakes Walking

 

Our idea of “a nice walk”? Roaming the tucked-away, mountain-encircled lakes of Koenigssee (known for its glacial waters), Chiemsee (featuring a castled island), and Fuschlsee (gesundheit!) Plus, dinner at Heinz Winkler, friend and Michelin-starred chef.

BVLWS_button

Douro Valley Walking

 

No need to choose between the hot wine regions of Vinho Verde and Douro (home of Port)—we’ll explore both in style. Unfortunately, you’ll still have to choose a Six Senses spa treatment: Olive oil body wrap? Rose-jasmine facial? Cupping massage?

PORWS_button

Beijing & Himalayas Active Expedition

 

Everything we love most in China: Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, sure, but also our favourite restaurant for duck in Beijing (don’t challenge us on this), a serene picnic on the Great Wall, Dali tapas by Erhai Lake, isolated Naxi villages, and gorgeous rural riding along the Yangtze.

CHINA-button

Rhone River Cruise Biking

 

How does one trek from Provence to Burgundy, but only unpack once? By floating up the Rhône aboard one of Uniworld’s stylish river ships. Fall overboard (in a good way) for the vineyards of the Luberon, Côtes du Rhône and Beaujolais.

RHOBC_button

Camino de Santiago Biking

 

Middle Age Christians considered the “Way of St. James” one of the most spiritual routes on the planet. Make your own pilgrimage (minus the robes) from León to dramatic Santiago de Compostela—including the astounding, emerald-green Cantabrian range. Hallelujah.

CDBSS_button

Vietnam & Laos Biking

 

Take enchantment to a new level. Limestone islands? Floating villages? Secret caves? Ridges of rice paddies? Private float plane? Even your B&R guide gets googly-eyed.

vietnam&laos-button

Puglia Family Adventure

 

Kick off your summer in Italy’s most bambino-friendly region. Splash around in the sparkling Adriatic, let the kids get their Katniss Everdeen on (archery, that is, not revolution-mongering), float in a catamaran, and explore Ostuni—Italy’s bright, white answer to Santorini.

PUGFS_button

Sri Lanka Active Expedition

 

This sensuous, once-troubled region features golden beaches, lush rainforests, vanished empires, tea plantations, Hindu temples, gentle locals, mist-shrouded highlands, and eucalyptus forests—a heady mix that still remains relatively unexplored. (Unless you join us!)

srilanka-button

Tuscany E-Biking

 

Hilltop vineyards, charming (and surprisingly unfrequented) villages, lush vistas, dinner in former stables, a private picnic with our local friends—this is the Italy of dreams. Even dreamier? Tap your e-bike at the first hint of fatigue and feel the wheels practically turning themselves. No pain, all gain.

Mosel & Rhine River Biking

 

How does one summarize “meandering valleys of terraced vineyards that produce delightful white wines”? And how best to put “countless castles and slate-roofed villages, rich in folklore and steeped in tradition”? In a word, it’s “Mosel”. Come and see for yourself. Veni et vide. It’s what the Romans did.

Mekong Grand Journey

 

When we go big, we go big. Stay in two of the most remarkable properties on the continent, drift along the Mekong River in a five-star floating hotel, join 600 saffron-clad monks in a ritual, hike to cascading waterfalls, and pick your jaw up off the ground at least
three times a day.

Myanmar to Thailand Active Expedition

 

Experience unforgettable Thailand and Myanmar, from biking the lush countryside to strolling through spectacular temples, we take in these two countries at a pace that reflects their gentle character and reveals a world that will forever live in your imagination.
