Small Group Tours in Bhutan

The tiny Himalayan nation of Bhutan offers a tantalising glimpse into what much of the region was once like, replete with still functioning medieval monasteries and a landscape to take your breath away. Our small group tour allows travellers to delve into the culture and history of this beautiful country, where national dress is still worn and ancient traditions strongly adhered to. With just a few privileged visitors allowed to enter each year, travelling through Bhutan is like stepping back in time to a land largely untainted by the 21st century. In our increasingly homogenous world, Bhutans proud sense of national identity is a refreshing change in comparison to some of its neighbours, and offers a taste of an authentic and traditional lifestyle that has been extinguished elsewhere.

Bhutan - Discover Bhutan

Style: TravellerCultural discovery away from the crowds
Duration: 13 days
Type: PrivateExclusive departures for you, your friends and family

Discover the land of the thunder dragon, Bhutan, where gross national happiness is considered more important than gross national product. The country stretches from subtropical valleys and plains to snowcapped mountain ranges. This landscape makes it the perfect place to trek through the majestic valleys or steep mountains to visit ancient architecture and Buddhist temples. Our 13 day private tour takes in the highlights of this rarely visited country including Bumthang Valley, with its apple orchards, dairy farms, potato patches, and rice and buckwheat fields and the world famous Tiger's Nest – also known as Taktsang, it is said to be the most spiritual place in Bhutan.
