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.”
Canada's capital of history
How do you improve on luscious cuisine, vibrant city squares and ethereal cultural charms of Europe? Put it in your own backyard—and sprinkle in a dash of Canadian politeness. Here, you will picnic along charming rivers, practice your French, then sample cider and seasonal berries as you ride the bucolic countryside from 400-year-old Quebec City to beautiful Baie-Saint-Paul. Biking and walking through it all, you will soon appreciate why this pocket of North America is truly special—a place where hockey, maple syrup, food and politics are religion (though not necessarily in that order!).

Day by Day
Cycle through vibrant UNESCO-recognized Québec City with your guide and continue to the Plains of Abraham. Then, suit up for an exciting fencing lesson!
Arrive at Jacques Cartier National Park and cycle along the river, keeping your eyes peeled for the moose, lynx and beaver who reside here. Paddle your way back downstream, taking in spectacular views from your kayak.
Cycle along the quiet country roads of Île d’Orléans, past churches, galleries and quaint little workshops. Stop for lunch at a local ciderie before meeting your train to Baie-Saint-Paul.
Head out for a zodiac excursion from Baie Sainte Catherine—you're likely to spot seals, minke, blue whales, and perhaps even belugas in this protected marine park.
Visit Grands-Jardins National Park and stroll its boreal black spruce forest and tundra. This afternoon, make your way through an easy course across the mountainside for spectacular views over the Jardins.
After a final breakfast together, we’ll retrace our steps back to Quebec City. There, we’ll bid one another adieu as we part ways for our homeward-bound flights.
Immerse yourself in French Canadian culture.

This elegant family-run hotel perches in a tranquil mountain clearing. The simple yet elegant rooms capture the sense of place with a true sense of chic.

Our Guide, Jean Louis Doss was amazing. He really made the trip for us. We can’t wait to start planning our next B&R trip and have already told many friends about our experience, our guide and Butterfield.

— George Butterfield
