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.”

Day by Day
We’ll meet in Cusco and learn about the process of fabric making in Awana Kancha before a scavenger hunt and picnic lunch in the Sacred Valley.
Start the day with a lesson on stand-up paddle boarding at a nearby lake. Bike along the fields of the Chinchero plateau, backdropped by the snow-capped Urubamba range, to the Maras ‘salt works’.
Head out for a walk in the heights of Ollantaytambo to the archeological site of Pumamarca. Lunch includes a visit to an organic farm set on an original Inca Terrace.
Chug along on a train to Machu Picchu, one of the most spectacular journeys in the world, as it follows the Urubamba River through the Canyon of Vilcanota and on to the Lost City of the Incas.
Set out for a second visit to Machu Picchu on an adventurous hike up to Machu Picchu Mountain or explore around the ruins of the site. Head to Cusco this evening for a night on the town.
Journey up to the Sacsayhuaman archeological site, designed by the Incas to depict a puma’s head. Feast on an Andean barbecue lunch set up especially for us in an exclusive location.
A private car will collect you from the hotel to take you to the Cusco airport for your onward journey. Safe travels!
See more than Machu Picchu.

Contemporary amenities create the ambience of comfort and exclusivity enjoyed by guests of the hotel. View hotel website »
We would like to congratulate B&R for the amazing experience we had in Peru. The unique opportunity we had to interact with local people and go really deep into their culture is something we will never forget.— Leandro Taga
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
Our daily walks range in distance from 4 to 10 km (2.5 to 6 mi.), on cobbled city streets, grassy terraced hillsides and along the winding footpaths of the Inca Trail. We travel throughout the Sacred Valley at altitudes between 1,500 and 3,200 m (5,000 to 11,000 ft.). Apart from one challenging walk up to Machu Picchu, it’s moderate going. You may find, however, that the effect of the altitude will make the walks require more effort than they would at lower elevations. Expect some uneven stairs on our hikes in the ruins as well as some sheer drop offs in places.
“I am an active person and don’t mind a little sweat. I like to walk or bike once a week at home.”
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
