Supernatural legends, ancient fortress dzongs and vibrant festivals remain at the heart of modern-day Bhutan where the warm-hearted people still live their lives according to time-honoured traditions and deeply held Buddhist beliefs. Along with its unique cultural attractions, Bhutan’s dense forests, high Himalayan peaks and wonderfully varied flora and fauna also make it a Shangri-La for outdoor enthusiasts. For first time visitors a combination of easy walks and sightseeing around the main towns provides the perfect introduction, but for those who want to go a little off-the-beaten-track there are trekking trails, hidden valleys and remote cultural sights to discover.
Take a look at our suggested itineraries, experiences and accommodation options, then let us create your once-in-a-lifetime holiday to the Thunder Dragon Kingdom.

The walking holiday you designed for us was absolutely perfect in every way. We had ample time to look round the dzongs and temples, the walks were not too hard and took us to some really interesting villages and viewpoints, and the accommodation was welcoming and comfortable. Just as we’d requested. Best of all though, the festival in Paro - WOW. We can’t thank you enough.
