The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
Pedalling northern Argentina
Unbelievable variety is commonplace in Argentina’s northwest. From jaw-dropping mountain vistas and canyons that change colour in the sunlight to incredibly lush cloud forests—Argentina comes complete with colourful colonial towns, miles of bike-friendly pavement, flavours and rhythms that have fed and moved generations of Altiplano people, and Salta, known locally as simply “The Beautiful.” Then, there’s the wine: as good to rest in (via a wine-spa treatment) as it is to drink. Deliciousness all over.

We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
No brochure or trip description can prepare you for the awe inspiring descent in the Andes. We likely would not have experienced this beautiful scenery to the same extent had we not been riding.— Douglas Dorner
The daily bike rides will average roughly 40 km (25 mi.). Your guides always have some extra optional rides if you’re wanting more. An optional afternoon hike is offered as a way to explore the coloured Purmamarca hills.
