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.”
Windmills and flower fields
Tilt at some windmills as you walk the picturesque coast that inspired the Dutch masters. For a nation in which many live below sea level, the high points are everywhere apparent. Here, in the legendary land of tulips and windmills, we navigate our way by walking the endless towpaths, polders and dykes that dot the land. Delve deep into the gastronomical wonders: oysters and shellfish, traditional savoury pannekoeken (pancakes!) and even two Michelin two-starred meals. The journey is quite simply a masterpiece.

Our trip to Holland was amazing. We we were able to experience so many facets of this incredible country. Our guides Alice, Alessio and Abby were just wonderful. After eight B&R trips, this was our best yet. Hard bar to exceed!— Carol Llewellyn
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
The walks are mostly as flat as a Dutch pancake with a few occasional rolls in the dunes, and vary between 7 and 16 km (4.5-10 mi.).
“I can’t say I really work out, but I do walk a couple of times a week at home.”
Country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.Read more on our Activity Levels
