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.”
Three countries, one incredible journey
Austria, Slovenia and Croatia are a nature lover’s delight. Snow-capped peaks, sparkling blue lakes, dense forest and vineyard-covered valleys come together (with a healthy spattering of designated bike trails) to leave outdoor enthusiasts spoiled for choice. Though these three countries are far from their bind in the Austro-Hungarian empire, what they do continue to share is a love of locally sourced food, stunning and varied landscapes and an appreciation for well-crafted wine.

Day by Day
Visit the town of Graz, Austria for a tour with a local artist, who will capture the beating heart of this delightful city. Then, change into your bike clothes for your first ride along the Mur River.
Hit the quiet roads that zigzag through the hills of Southern Styria. Stop en route to taste the local delicacy, kürbiskernöl (pumpkin seed oil), and enjoy lunch at a local Buschenschank (wine bar).
Start biking straight from the hotel’s doorstep into the wine hills and across the border into Slovenia. Lunch will be a local affair, hosted by a family of farmers along the way.
Venture to Radovljica to meet with your bikes for a spin in the direction of Lake Bled. Marvel at its impossibly turquoise-blue waters before heading back to Ljubljana for a guided tour of the old town.
Discover the hidden corners of southeastern Slovenia and pedal through forested hillsides and emerald green valleys. Along the way, visit with the locals, sample cured meats and get familiar with Slovene schnapps!
Depart Otocec for a ride skirting the border of Croatia. After lunch, say goodbye to your bikes and hop in the vehicle headed for Zagreb to wander its streets at your whim.
After one of the best breakfasts of your life in the Esplanade hotel (trust us!), you’ll be driven to the airport for your onward travels.
Experience Austria, Slovenia and Croatia.

It was a total immersion experience and we can't wait to do it again.—Louise Ebentier
I loved the guides—all interesting, smart, and capable, trying hard to make sure we had a good experience.—Linda Laskowski
The terrain on this trip is challenging. Climbs can be as steep as 10% and with lots of rolling hills in between and long ascents and descents. An e-bike is highly recommended.
“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
