  • Visit Moulay Brahim
  • Fantastic views on the Lalla Takerkoust Lake

Have the experience of a lifetime on a bike or, if you prefer, an amicable camel. Go from bustling souks to Berber villages and crumbling kasbahs. Lose yourself overnight in the silky Saharan dunes at a breathtaking tented camp, and luxuriate at Kasbah Tamadot, Dar Ahlam and Riad Farnatchi (exclusive to us). You’ll think you’re walking toward a mirage, but trust us, it’s all real.

If you've not taken a trip with Butterfield & Robinson as your guides, you must! My husband and I love to travel and are pretty resourceful at finding great hotels and restaurants on our own. However, we just completed our third trip with B&R and are always so impressed and awed at the quality of accommodations, education, and experiences we would not of had on our own.We can't wait and are already planning for the next trip!

Just returned from our first B&R trip, a walking tour to Machu Picchu. Our guides, Stephanie and Peter were outstanding. Each day we were surprised with amazing experiences, 5 star accommodations and exceptional food. Our expectations were far surpassed. It is hard to put into words the moment we entered the Sun Gate and first looked down on Machu Picchu. I will only say you will never forget that moment. Thank you, thank you B&R!!!

Butterfield and Robinson has changed our lives. The combination of hiking, or biking, or cruise/biking at a slowed-down pace, with the help of their excellent guides, in foreign locations, makes for a relaxed, pleasurable travel experience. We have now travelled ten times with them, and we plan to do more. Their electric bikes (optional) extend our opportunity to travel with them into happy old age. Terry Patrick

This was our first trip with B and R, but it will not be our last. Our Amalfi Coast walking trip was so amazing from start to finish. Our guides (Courtney and Lisa) took such great care to make all of us so comfortable and feel safe and secure. The food, the five star hotels, the sights, sounds, and surprises along the way will leave lasting memories and bring smiles to our faces when we think of our Italian adventure.

Accomodations

Dar Ahlam, Province de Ouarzazate

Located within the palm groves of Skoura, this relaxing kasbah features serene guest rooms, a gorgeous turquoise pool and soaring views of the mighty Atlas Mountains. Our Regional Expert for Morocco reports that the property is possibly the best he's seen in his 18 years in the country.

A Night in the Desert, Iriqui Lake

Our private Berber Camp in the middle of the desert is not just magical and romantic—it’s also very comfortable. The camp features double and twin private tents furnished with rich carpets, warm blankets and very comfy beds, so you’ll sleep like a Berber and a baby at the same time!

Kasbah Tamadot, Asni

Once owned by an Italian antique collector, this unique mountain retreat is tucked away in the midst of the Imlil Valley. Surrounded by the High Atlas Mountains, rose gardens, almond groves and fruit trees, B&R is proud to be the only biking company accepted at this impressive property.
