Bali crept into people’s imagination, after a hiatus of over a hundred years or so, back in the 1970s and we arrived shortly after with a trip that took us through jungle, across mountains and along sandy beaches. After an exile of over 20 years we are thrilled to be back, resurrecting our previous itinerary with the odd modification or two, and of course the inclusion of the island of Lombok to our “Island of Gods” itinerary.

The best way to see the world

This is our 10th Butterfield Trip. It remains the best way to see a region. Nothing beats vigorous activity during the day and luxury at night. Bespoke trips for a large group are cost-effective and totally your own. We loved our guides Denis and Jerome this month in Loire, France. Amazing trip. With B&R you have access to private homes, private experiences, and people and places you would never meet otherwise.
