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.”
Journey into the Sahara
As you cross the sun-baked Saharan dunes and ascend the soaring High Atlas Mountains, a strange sensation creeps over you (don’t worry, it’s not heat exhaustion—we’ve got you covered): it’s the stunning surroundings seeping into your soul. We believe a place like Morocco is best enhanced by local characters sharing their stories and lives, and after more than a decade here, we’ve earned plenty of friends. From souk to Kasbah to remote Berber village, we’ve got the authentic experiences right here. Unleash your inner nomad.

Kasbah Tamadot, Asni
Once owned by an Italian antique collector, this unique mountain retreat is tucked away in the midst of the Imlil Valley.

Riad Farnatchi, Marrakech
With only 9 suites, this boutique Riad boasts elaborate Moroccan design and unique works of art. It is renowned as a calm refuge—with all the modern conveniences—from the frenetic pace of the city around it. Craftsmen and local artists worked for three years to give this property all the authenticity and luxury Morocco could offer. Your biggest dilemma will be whether to wander into the souks or lounge poolside with a long cool drink. View hotel website »
The most memorable? Cars passing as I was cycling up the hill and drivers yelling "Bon Courage!" (good luck); reaching the top of the climb on that last day of cycling to see the magnificent vista below.— Christine Mccaffrey
The Moroccan bike tour is an exotic journey across the sun-kissed Sahara on bikes, camels, foot and 4WD jeeps. Accommodations include one night in a lavish Berber desert camp where luxury tents are bedecked with sumptuous carpets and richly decorated blankets.USA TODAY
We never wanted to be the biggest travel company in the world, just the best.
— George Butterfield
Daily biking distances usually vary from 20 to 50 km (12 to 30 mi.), with options on some days as far as 62 km (40 mi.). The terrain is generally flat, with a few hills along the way when we’re closer to the High Atlas Mountains. The difficulty of the ride often depends on which way the wind is blowing.
“I ride my bike once or twice a month and am comfortable on two wheels.”
Relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.Read more on our Activity Levels
