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.”
Sailing Sardinia's North Coast
Once the home of kidnappers and bandits, today the residents of Sardinia couldn’t be any more welcoming. Travelling by private boat and two wheels, we’ll take you from the glitzy beaches of the Costa Smeralda—considered one of Europe’s most well-heeled coastlines—to the northwestern islands with their intriguing Catalan roots. En route, we’ll dip into the French island of Corsica, where we’ll discover the Old Town of Bonifacio and pedal to ancient sites in its environs. We’ll cycle past small villages that bear mysterious pasts, through rolling hills dotted with grazing sheep, and along trails that travel beside the sparkling blue sea. A sleek and modern gulet, the Victoria, serves as our floating home, allowing us to sail between the islands with style and ease.

Day by Day
We rendezvous in the Costa Smeralda for our warm-up ride. Views of the sea punctuate our journey until we reach the Surrau Winery for a taste of Sardinia’s delicious varietals.
Cycle past sandy coves; incredible granite formations; and a seascape that reveals a majestic patchwork of blue, emerald, and green on Maddalena Island. A dip in the water is encouraged!
On Caprera Island, we'll hike alongside pink granite rock formations that watch over the turquoise sea. After lunch, we'll join an expert to kayak the coves and inlets of La Maddalena National Park.
We set sail across the Strait of Bonifacio to Corsica. Upon reaching the inlet of Cala Sciumara, we'll begin our hike along the southern coast, walking beneath spectacular white limestone cliffs to Bonifacio’s citadel.
Today’s ride takes us inland to Hermitage of the Trinity, a remarkable site with an ancient altar that dates back to the 5thC. A short walk then leads us to a stunning remote beach—accessible only by foot!
We cruise out of Bonifacio and motor along the Corsican coast to the picturesque marina of Santa Giulia. We'll hop on our bikes for a scenic ride to Porto Vecchio, a town noted for its fishing history.
Today we make our way back to Italy and Sardinia’s shores. After lunch on the gulet, we disembark in Santa Teresa di Gallura for our last spin of the week.
Following breakfast, we disembark in Cannigione for the approximately 35-minute drive to the Olbia airport for your onward travels. Arrivederci!
Drop anchor in pure paradise.
Gulet Victoria, Sardinia
The Victoria spans roughly 25 metres (82 feet) in length, with a Mahogany-finished interior and six cabins with ensuite bathrooms. The fully-air conditioned vessel enjoys two common dining areas (where we’ll gather for breakfast and dinner), a sunbathing deck and endless epic views of the surrounding Tyrrhenian sea.
Travelling with B&R is what being alive is all about. It's action packed and incredibly invigorating with so many personal highlights that it's hard to single out just one.— Andrew Crowe
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
This trip is appropriate for travellers who bike about once a week at home. Your daily rides are 22 to 52 km (14 to 31 mi) often over rolling terrain, some with challenging climbs. There is also a moderate hike and an easy going walk while on Corsica. Van support is at hand for the cycling, allowing you short shuttles to reduce the distance of any ride, but your experience is definitely improved with consistent training leading up to your trip.
“I bike about once a week at home.”
Gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort. Layover days accommodate varying preferences.Read more on our Activity Levels
