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

India Walking


From the bustling streets of New Delhi to the rural lands of Rajasthan, this journey abounds with authentic experiences and some of India’s most spectacular accommodation. Go behind the scenes on a private tour of Mehrangarh Fort and immerse yourself in the culture of this remarkable land. This is B&R’s India.

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


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.


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.


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?


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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!)


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.


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.
