DAY IN THE LIFE: By Boat
Grüß Gott! This Viennese coffee is fantastic! (Did I just wake up on a boat?) Just what I needed to start my day, caffeine in my veins. Fueled for the morning ride, let’s see how far I get today.
Rolling up to a beautiful alpine meadow for a picnic lunch, I’m at the head of the pack by a long shot. This is possibly the freshest cheese I’ve ever tasted. Better sneak a bit more before everyone else arrives…
Back aboard for some well-deserved post-bike pampering. From my balcony, I pour myself a cup of tea and let the spectacular views reveal themselves around every bend. Massage time, here I come…
Did I fall asleep? Well, there’s still time to explore the ship and its deck. I wrangle my partner up and off we go to check out what part of the world we’re in now.
Reminiscing about the day during dinner. It turns out everyone has a great story about the day, but the real highlight are these regional wines.
Dinner turned into watching the sunset and a nightcap on the deck. Somehow, the views get even better. I can’t wait to see what my morning view is like tomorrow…

Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.
Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
Walking – 8-12 km a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort. Layover days accommodate varying preferences.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.
Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.
Walking – 11-15 km over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.
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.
We craft extraordinary experiences, tailor made to meet your every need,
with every stitch of every day crafted just the way you want it.
We had high expectations for this Galapagos trip and were blown away with how 'other worldly' and incredible it was. Cannot wait for our next B&R trip!– Donald Holzworth, Galapagos
