Bhutan offers a cornucopia of delights to even the most seasoned traveller. Imposing fortress monasteries (dzongs), supernatural myths and legends, and vibrant festivals all bring a sense of Bhutan’s unique cultural identity. It is a place where national dress is still commonly worn, the architecture looks like no other, archery is the preeminent sport and where the people live their lives according to time-honoured traditions and deeply held beliefs.
Bhutan’s verdant forests, high Himalayan peaks and wonderfully varied flora and fauna also provide a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. From gentle walks through valleys and villages to challenging high mountain treks, there is truly something for everyone. For many first time visitors a combination of sightseeing with easy-paced day walks offers the ideal introduction to this remarkable Himalayan 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.
