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.”
Old world charm meets new world cool
Geographically narrow. Culturally robust. Welcome to Chile. Dominated by the Andes and the Pacific on a strip of land that runs up South America’s south-western coast, Chile boasts a mix of European and indigenous influences that imbue the country with an old-school, European feel. The Mediterranean-like climate in its wine valleys has helped propel the country’s oenological offerings to international acclaim, and nowhere is this more evident than our final night hotel, the Vina Vik, recently named one of the world’s best new hotels by Travel + Leisure magazine.
