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.”
The land where the sun sets
Morocco is one of our oldest friends—the land, in fact, where the idea of a B&R expedition was born. We saw a foreign, exotic, stunning country beautifully suited to our penchant for pedaling and knew we absolutely had to introduce B&R travellers to it. And despite its convenient proximity to Europe, we knew our travellers may very well only come once. With that in mind, we give you the best on this Morocco bike tour: magical Marrakech, Berber villages, stunning oases, fabulous food, a Kasbah hotel, the High Atlas Mountains and an absolutely unforgettable stay in the magical city of Essaouira in a riad.

Kasbah Bab Ourika, Ourika Valley
With 360-degree panoramic views of the Ourika Valley and the snow-capped Atlas Mountains, the Bab Ourika receives warm sunlight all day, ending in spectacular sunsets. From its unique eyrie-like position, it offers a bird’s-eye view of the Atlas range, traditional Berber villages and the lush river valley below. View hotel website »
Villa de L’O, Essaouira
Located a few meters from the beach, the Villa de l’O is a 18thC palace which been tastefully restored a few years ago. The theme here is a mix between a very original Colonial style and a certain idea of Moroccan luxury. The rooftop terrace offers the most beautiful views on the bay and enjoying a breakfast is a pure delight! View hotel website »
Naoura Barriere, Marrakech
This recently opened property is nestled in the walls of the ancient city. It offers all of the amenities you could dream and is built in the “Ryad style” with of course, a very large pool in the courtyard. It’s one of the most recent addition to the “Barrière” Hotels Collections and it also has in its walls one of the small “brother” of the so famous restaurant Le Fouquet’s in Paris!

The B&R guides were incredible, talented and gifted. Traveling with them was an excellent experience.— Marina Junqueira Netto de Azevedo Barros
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. The walking routes are mostly flat, except for our day in the Atlas Mountains.
“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
