New! Introducing Wellness Trips with Butterfield & Robinson

Walking, Wellness… and Wine!

Escape, Unplug, and Indulge with B&R.

Slow down to see the World has always been about more than simply experiencing new places; it's about finding new ways to re-engage with yourself in different settings.

While all B&R trips aspire to that (lofty) goal, our new wellness portfolio takes it up a notch by thoughtfully pairing exceptional spa properties in regions that have been practicing healthy lifestyles for millenniums, rooting your experience in

  • local knowledge,
  • challenging physical activities,
  • optional yoga classes (outdoors, whenever possible!) and
  • investigations of slow food concepts.

We still drink wine and let loose—we’re not tyrants—but we prioritize healthier fare and good old-fashioned exertion to get the heart rate up, so that the mind can settle.

It’s an ancient quest, but you can trust we bring new flair to it.

Butterfield & Robinson’s new 2020 wellness collection spans the globe.


Retreat. Unplug. Reconnect. Whatever your vision is—extended spa visits, getting as far from the nearest cellphone tower as possible, meditation in the mountains—our experts can bring it to life, with all the B&R panache you can imagine.



The Butterfield & Robinson difference is the best active experiences in the world’s most incredible places (and we should know—we’ve been discovering them for over 50 years!). It’s the most capable and genuinely friendly guides you’ll find anywhere (and we found ours everywhere). It’s the most interesting hotels the region has to offer (of course, by “hotels” we mean castles, riads, ryokans… you get the idea). It’s amazing culinary experiences, state-of-the-art equipment, great wines at dinner, a water bottle that’s always full, suggestions you won’t find in any guidebook, and an experience you simply can’t get anywhere else.

Terms, conditions and restrictions apply; pricing, availability, and other details subject to change and/ or apply to US or Canadian residents. Please confirm details and booking information with your travel advisor.
