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.”
Revel in raw, natural beauty
Some of the truly remarkable places in the world are not defined by national borders but rather by a culture; a feeling; a sense of something special. Patagonia typifies this and our week long journey takes us from the UNESCO recognized National Park of Torres del Paine in Chile through to the Glaciares National Park in Argentina. We will get up close and personal with soaring granite peaks, vast stretches of glaciers, pampas and forest. Whilst the landscapes dazzle it is also the local people that we meet that will leave an equally everlasting impression.

Day by Day
Bid farewell to civilization and hit the open road toward Los Glaciares National Park. Spend the evening taking in views of epic Fitz Roy, the legendary granite peak just across the lake in El Chaltén.
Hit the trails behind our hotel (by foot or by horseback), coming to rest at Blue Lagoon (a site that no photo can possibly do justice). After lunch, head back to the lodge—perhaps with some curious
Traverse a former cattle trail on a beautiful hike stopping along the way at Punta del Viento, the azure waters of Lake Viedma and (for the keen hikers) Laguna del Mo.
Wave goodbye to the pink flamingos and Lago Viedma as you make your way back to Calafate. After lunch at a local friend's house, settle into hotel Eolo, your home for the next three nights.
Rise early for an unforgettable view of Perito Moreno glacier in the morning light. Then, head down to Lago Argentino for a closer look at the face of this ice mass (big enough to fit all of Buenos Aires within its borders).
Depending on your preference today, either journey into Patagonia's backcountry by 4x4 or head further south into the much-less travelled glacial valley of Lago Frias.
This morning, depending on what time your flight is back to Buenos Aires, you’ll have time for a hike up the Cerro Frias. Take in your last panoramic views of the Lago Argentina and of the Torres del Paine before boarding your plane.

B&R travel is seamless. The pre-trip informational packet was amazing, the guides were awesome, the food was delicious and the wine was flowing. We loved our experience and would definitely return to ride skinny tires with your company again.— Julianne Major
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.

The walking really varies given the choices available to us most days. Walking distances anywhere from 3 to 24 km (2-15 mi.) are possible over mixed terrain, sometimes relatively ﬂ at but on occasion you can choose to push yourself with more challenging topography. In addition to walking you will have the opportunity to horseback ride (as easygoing as you would like).
“I go on a long walk once a week, and I don’t mind a little sweat.”
Rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.Read more on our Activity Levels
