Joanna Lumley's Japan

Joanna Lumley's Japan

Japan takes centre stage tonight with the start of a three part documentary series that sees Joanna Lumley embarking on an epic 2,000 mile journey round the country. She will be exploring the unique culture, sampling the cuisine and learning about Japan’s fascinating history as she tries to get under the skin of this compelling and intriguing land.

Joanna’s journey takes her from high-tech, high-rise cities to remote islands and ancient mountain trails, on the way she discovers wonderfully varied landscapes, unexpected delights and a world of cultural contrasts. As she says herself: “Every moment was thrilling, fascinating and often very moving. With my hand on my heart I can say: please come with me… to Japan!”

If Joanna’s travels round Japan make you want to visit, then take a look at our two NEW trekking holidays in Japan. Staying in traditional accommodation, our Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trek follows sacred paths through beautiful high mountain scenery, whilst our immersive Gentle Trekking Japan trip explores ancient trails and historic post-towns including the Nakasendo Trail – named by Joanna Lumley in her top 5 things to do in Japan.

Joanna Lumley's Japan starts Friday 9th September at 9:00pm on ITV.

Mountain Kingdoms clients return to Bhutan

Bhutan is back open after two long years, and Ian and Lizzy were amongst our first clients to return. They were doing the Druk Path Trek and here’s what they had to say about their time in Bhutan.

"Amazing scenery and sights with the most hospitable people you’re ever likely to meet. Our guide was superb and all the camp crew were great. The Druk Path trek may be a short trek but the altitude makes it more challenging as most of it is over 3500m, we were well looked after and the food was amazing in camp."
