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.”
From the North Shore to Waikiki Beach
On this Oahu adventure, experience the classics these islands are most-known for, then let us give you a taste of the real Hawaii. Begin along the North Shore, where you’ll spend your days kayaking, snorkelling, and soaking in the sun at your gorgeous beachside resort. Catch the perfect wave at one of Oahu’s many iconic surf beaches (with the help of your seasoned instructor, of course), then take in 360° views from above as you soar through the skies on a 1/2 mile-long zip line. Complete your journey with a stay at Waikiki Beach’s iconic Royal Hawaiian hotel and an unforgettable hike up Diamond Head volcano.
Note: While there have been some recent eruptions of Mount Kilauea on the island of Hawaii, Butterfield & Robinson trips are currently unaffected by these events. We continue to monitor the situation closely to ensure the safety of our travellers and guides. Our Travel Advisors are here to answer any of your questions at 1-866-551-9090.
