Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help. We can create an independent travel experience to fit your needs—and if you desire, arrange for a local guide.
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.”
Through desert & glaciers
We don’t call this an expedition for nothing. You’ll feel like you’ve hiked and travelled to the end of the earth. (You have.) From the Atacama Desert to the Torres del Paine, this region is epic in every way. Filled with sumptuous meals, world-class wines and old-world charm, you’ll find yourself amazed that the drastic changes in the landscape here all still fall under the same flag. You will have access to your own 4×4 and private guide the entire time, meaning the starry sky is the limit for your experience. Our bucket-list Awasi hotels provide soft landings amidst the rugged landscape. May we offer you a glass of Malbec with your hot tub?

Day by Day
Arrive in San Pedro de Atacama and settle into your luxurious, nature-filled home for the next four days. Enjoy dinner under the stars, prepared by Awasi's brilliant in-house chef—he's known for his clever palate and passion for local ingredients!
Your schedule at Awasi Atacama will be yours to create. Today, you could venture out in a 4x4 to a geyser-filled geothermal field. Or, hike to amazing views of the Atacama Salt Flats and enjoy the sunset with a high-altitude appetizer.
Today, you might consider exploring the Cejar by bike. Your route offers 360° view of the Andes, Domeyko and Salt mountain ranges. Afterwards, cool of in the pristine turquoise lakes that will greet you in Cejar.
Hike up scenic Toco Hill and enjoy incredible views of Bolivia's Laguna Blanca at the summit. Tonight, visit the Awasi Atacama Observatory for an incredible star-gazing experience (the desert sky here is one of the clearest in the world!).
Bid farewell to the desert and hello to Santiago. Your local guide will show you around the city and bring some of its fascinating contrasts to light. This evening, enjoy a sunset cocktail on The Singular’s rooftop bar before dinner.
Continue to Patagonia for a first look at the stunning Torres del Paine. Head out from Awasi for a loop hike known as the Sierra Contreras, where you'll be rewarded with postcard-worthy views featuring Cordillera Paine, Las Chinas Valley and Lake Sarmiento.
Take full advantage of the raft of local guides and 4x4 vehicles available at Awasi Patagonia; options abound over the next three days here! Hike the Mirador Cumbre for spectacular views of the Southern Ice Field and the Paine Massif.
Jump in the saddle and head into the plains, watching for condor and guanaco from your steed. The gauchos who run the stables know every bit of the terrain and have an incredible relationship with the horses—they'll teach you the ropes!
Today you will take in your final views of the Torres del Paine (for now) and make your way to the local airport for your flight back to Santiago.
Experience the rugged beauty.

Awasi, Torres del Paine
The complex of cabins and main lodge that make up Awasi is truly magical, featuring stunning views across to Torres del Paine and yet sheltered from the winds that whip through the plains here. The individual cabins are tastefully decorated in local wood and are complete with a fireplace and an outdoor hot tub; the perfect retreat after a day of activities. View hotel website »
Awasi Atacama, San Pedro de Atacama
Inspired by the pre-Incan ruins, Awasi Atacama is built with adobe, local stone and wood in the manner of the land’s ancestors. Each suite boasts a private patio and outdoor shower.

B&R does it right in every way; from the hotels, routes, tours, variety and especially the guides! They even manage to find the hidden treasures and people unavailable to the typical tourist. You could never design a better trip for yourself, no matter what your budget, then the people at B&R can do for you.— Kristin Turner
