Bhutan Tours & Holidays

Bhutan measures its success by Gross National Happiness and by the end of your Intrepid tour, you’ll have contributed more than your fair share of smiles to the cause.

This tiny Himalayan kingdom does things differently. Having only been open to visitors for 45 years, Bhutan puts its environment, culture and wellbeing ahead of economics. This place absorbs more carbon than it creates and a Bhutan tour is perfect for trekkers, nature-lovers and Buddhist pilgrims. From the jaw-dropping Tiger’s Nest to the prayer halls of Gangte Goemba, you’ll experience moments – and people – that make happiness seem like the norm, not a pursuit.

This is a very grounding experience. I felt that I could take time to experience and immerse myself in this trip. The places visited didn’t have many people so you could slow down and be present. I highly recommend this trip for anyone who loves immersing into new cultures and understand more about ‘exotic’ lands. You will leave soothed and calm and may even inspire a change in how you live your life at home.

Bhutan is a wonderful country and the experience exceeded my expectations. Pratap was a knowledgeable guide and the trip was well organised and delivered. Plenty of history, culture and experiences, with the highlight of course being the Tiger's Nest Monastery - this is an absolute must-do!

Bhutan Discovered

Jerri-leigh · Traveled November 2023
Bhutan is an incredible country. So peaceful and welcoming. Amazing architecture and scenery. Our guide Sangay and driver Tshring worked well together. Nothing was too much trouble and I have left with so much knowledge of both Bhutan and Buddhism.

Bhutan Expedition: Hike the Trans Bhutan Trail

Roz · Traveled November 2023
The TBT is a fabulous trip for anyone curious about Bhutanese culture - an ancient and remote society where the Royal family is revered, there was no currency prior to 1968, and it is common practice to have 4 wives or 4 husbands. A culture where the worst sins are anger, ignorance and greed..... an enrichment and delight to visit this staggeringly unspoilt mountainous country.... and a great physical challenge too.
