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
Japan Biking With
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?
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.
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.
