Ireland Biking: Through Counties Cork & Kerry in the Southwest

Cork Airport, Ireland for 6 Days • from $3,998* per person

Provider: Backroads

There's just something about Ireland. You get swept up in it. The indescribable hues of green. Tiny thatch-roofed homes. City names that sing like songs - Ballylickey, Clonakilty and Glengarriff. Your stay at Park Hotel Kenmare only adds to the drama. Herds of sheep add to the comedy. The accents of locals. Stopping in a small pub for a pint. And every person you meet strikes up a conversation. It seems like everyone has a story to tell in Ireland.… more

Imagine a rustic mountain hut that serves piping hot spaghetti al ragu and vino rosso. More than a warming hut, the traditional Dolomite rifugio is an oasis of simple comfort and hearty cuisine.

Provider: Backroads

Maybe it's the bike. It's disarming. Friendly. It shows you China in a way you can't see by any other means.

It's closer than that. It's real. The foods are richer. The language is spoken with your eyes. Yes, this journey somehow… more

Nothing can prepare you for Bhutan. It’s like nowhere else you’ve been. It has a magic about it that's indescribable. The quiet smiles. The natural rhythms of life.

How long does a trip last? Not in duration. In memories. In the stories you’ll tell friends.

That whole "time flies" theory just doesn't work in Patagonia. Imagine slowly ambling along a small ferry through a tremendous fjord on Lago Argentina heading toward Upsala Glacier. Time is moving so slowly but you can't possibly take in the scenery fast enough. The Andes are so windswept they almost look like petrified ocean waves, white caps and all. The lake is bouncing a clear blue sky back up at you. Framing everything perfectly. It's like time freezes in Patagonia… more
