Sit back, unplug, and reconnect
(with each other).

As the kids head off to college and step into new careers, the opportunities for quality family become fewer. In our (totally non-biased) opinion, there’s no better way to bring the crew back together than experiencing something new with one another.

Whether you want to hike through lush green meadows in the Dolomites or coast side by side through the hills of Tuscany, we’ve designed a special set of departures to suit families with kids in their late teens and 20s perfectly—so you can make this spring break, summer vacay, reading week (or whatever it may be) the best one yet.

Scroll down to see our list of departures specially designed for families with adult children.

Costa Brava Biking

Soak up the warmth of the Med in a region we adore (with the people YOU adore). Ride rolling volcanic hills dwarfed by the Pyrenees and explore villages stamped by time. Cannonball off the side of B&R's sailboat while cruising the Costa Brava, feast on farm-to-fork cuisine in Figueres, and let Spain's best Dali expert guide you through an intimate art tour (it's way better than the kids' art history class).

Dolomites Hiking

Explore the gorgeous (and little-known) Alpe di Siusi together. Experience the region's remarkable people, unforgettable hikes, and hardy mountain cuisine. After an invigorating (and jaw-dropping) alpine hike, keep your adrenaline flowing with a guided trek along a via ferrata. Pure fun!

Family Departure: June 30, 2020

Tuscany Biking

Take in the evening energy of Sienna and join in the laughter radiating from the piazza. Dine together—family-style—under the stars on a meal prepared by our private chef. Join some of our local friends in their own backyard for an afternoon of food and fun that you won't soon forget—if you’ve never danced in cycling shoes, this will be your chance!

Family Departure: July 5, 2020

Vienna to Budapest Biking

Follow the Danube through three countries and capitals, where quiet lakes, historic towns and globally ranked restaurants await around every bend—as does a night in Budapest's Gresham Palace, and another at Taubenkobel (where we're the only bikers invited to stay). Cool off after a day of riding with a splash in the hotel pool.

Family Departure: July 12, 2020

Switzerland E-Biking

Glide effortlessly through mountain and glacial vistas side by side on your faithful e-bikes—we're the only ones with a dedicated e-bike trip designed to electrify. For thrills, lunch in a mountain hut, then traverse a high-altitude glacier via a looming suspension bridge. For culture, listen as our local friend brings the region's stories to life. And for dessert? Chocolate, of course!

Family Departure: July 13, 2020

Prague to Vienna Biking

Bike from Prague's Bohemian chic to Vienna's stately elegance. Add pristine cycling, towering castles, hilltop monasteries (one is our hotel), and dinner at the legendary Landhaus Bacher. Finish off at the best hotel in Vienna, the Hotel Sacher. Fond dinner table memories for years to come, guaranteed!

Family Departure: August 2, 2020

Peru Walking

Want to see Machu Picchu after the tourists have left? We find the best way is to sleep next door at the stunning Sanctuary Lodge. During waking hours you'll walk the ruins of the Sacred Valley and hike the cloud forests of the Inca Trail (race you to the top!) before hopping on the Hiram Bingham Train back to Cusco for a final night dinner in an incredible Inca palace.

Family Departure: August 4, 2020

Berlin to Prague Biking

We've plotted the perfect course from one energetic European gem to another. Along the way, sink neck-deep into the history of UNESCO Dresden, spend not one night but two enjoying the serene bike paths of the Spreewald (and bask in the sumptuous spa of our hotel), then cap it off by riding to the door of our hotel in the city of Spires.

Family Departure: August 16, 2020

Mallorca Biking

Cycle past azure blue shores, fragrant lemon groves, and swathes of almond fields on this journey through Mallorca; a biker’s paradise. There are options for every riding ability, from the level interior to the leg-working coast (meaning both parents and kids will be happy!). Prepare yourself for delectable tapas, secluded coves and remarkable hotels in unforgettable settings.

Family Departure: March 29, 2020

Normandy & Brittany Biking

History comes to life here—and you will too. Let a deep appreciation for life wash over you as you ride as a family past white-sand beaches and memorial markers. Your trip stand-out? A journey through medieval history on a behind-the-scenes visit to magical Mont Saint-Michel.

Family Departure: June 28, 2020
