Our new series of bookable trips, Travel + Leisure Great Adventures by Butterfield and Robinson, will take you to some of the world’s most iconic sites in 2018 and beyond.
We travel for the thrill of seeing and experiencing something new — be it an awe-inspiring monument like the Grand Canyon, a city going through dynamic change, such as Lima, Peru, or nature at its most elemental, in wildlife-rich destinations like Tanzania.
Issue by issue, story by story, the editors of Travel + Leisure bring places such as these and fascinating cultures to life, giving you advice on where to go and how to make the most out of every vacation. Now, our editors have teamed up with Butterfield & Robinson, the Canada-based luxury adventure outfitter, to give you the chance to travel and see the world through our eyes.
Travel + Leisure Great Adventures by Butterfield & Robinson is a portfolio of six thrilling trips to countries including Canada, Peru, Tanzania, Spain, Ireland, and New Zealand. Ranging in length from five to nine days, and customizable for any group size, these trips combine outdoor adventure with incredible culinary and cultural experiences; each night ends in a top hotel, some of which have been voted World’s Best winners by our readers. T+L worked with the team at B&R to vet each hotel and design each itinerary, which includes a special editors’ pick activity.
In Spain, for example, you can embark on a leisurely biking trip through the vineyard-laden hills of Rioja, visiting charming villages along the way, and taste the impeccable reds the region is known for at the Marques de Riscal winery, designed by Frank Gehry. In Tanzania, over the course of nine magical days, you’ll visit both Tarangire National Park, a lesser-known, off-the-beaten path protected area that is home to some 550 bird species, and the show-stopping Serengeti, famous for its annual migration.
