B&R Introduces New Trips For 2013

From exotic luxury biking to private adventures

Toronto, ON—June 1, 2012 
Travel innovator Butterfield & Robinson offers new ways to see popular destinations like India and Morocco and emerging destinations such as Colombia and Laos. Since 1966, B&R has been crafting active experiences in the world's most beautiful settings, offering remote bike rides, scenic walks and the perfect combination of hotels; from traditional Japanese ryokans to riads in Morocco. Each day offers immersion into the local culture through experiences such as a simple lunch in a local home to extravagant celebrations fit for a Maharaja. 

"It's been a busy year for B&R researchers scouring the globe for new hot spots," says Norman Howe, President of Butterfield & Robinson. "As always with B&R, we seek out the unexpected (zip lining off the top of a Jodhpur fort), the authentic (exploring a rural village with locals), with a dash of theatre thrown in (private candle-light dinners under the stars). Whether you experience a private trip or join other B&R travellers on one of our new trips in 2013, you'll be profoundly and eternally changed by the experience. My family and I were in Rajasthan last December and we were transformed by the magic of the people and the land."

NEW Guided B&R Bike Trips for 2013

India Biking From US$7,695 per person; 8 Days; Departs: Dec, Jan, Oct, Nov
B&R has biked in Rajasthan for decades but the India trip has not been offered for the past two years. The variety of new hotels and changing landscapes posed a challenge for B&R researchers to create a new and even better trip! Experience the many facets of Rajasthan where the biking is through farmland and villages, colorful roads, mustard fields, desert flats and the extravagant City Palace of Udaipur. Hotels range from former hunting lodges to modern boutique hotels and the award-winning Oberoi Udaivilas. *India Biking December 20-27 2012 is open to teenagers 16 and older.

Morocco Bistro Biking From US$3,995 per person; 6 days; Departs: March, Apr, Oct, Nov
The idea of a B&R expedition was born in Morocco in the late 90s, reminiscent of ancient caravans travelling through the desert. Since then B&R has taken hundreds of travellers along the roads of this beguiling country. The explosion of new hotels and interest in Morocco has created enough demand to offer two different trips. This trip includes the best of Morocco: Marrakech, Berber villages, stunning oases, fabulous food, a Kasbah hotel, the High Atlas Mountains, and an unforgettable stay in a riad in the coastal city of Essaouira. 

Bistro trips offer more independence (more meals on your own), and the hotels tend to be 3 or 4-stars instead of off-the-chart. But the heart of every one is exactly the same as our marquee trips—same incredible routes, events, insider access and, of course, B&R guides.
