Highlights

 
     

    The kingdom of Bhutan, a landlocked state surrounded by several other, larger countries is like a small jewel resting in the middle of an enormous sandy beach. And while that jewel is small, that does nothing to diminish its beauty and shine, which is a fitting description for Bhutan.

    This magical kingdom is an amazing place to visit. And for 7 days, it is our goal that you have as much opportunity as possible to see and experience everything Bhutan has to offer, from its beautiful valleys to its incredible culture.

    You will get to see and spend nights in 4 different places during this tour. They include Paro, where you will land and depart, the capital city of Thimphu, the village of Gantey and the town of Wangduephodrang. Each one of these places offers their own set of unique highlights that will create their own unique memories.

    There really is something for everybody on this week long tour. For nature lovers, there is the gorgeous forests we will hike through, as well as a lot of varied wildlife you will doubtlessly be able to see. For history buffs, there are numerous monasteries and Dzongs you can see, each one with their own story to tell. Last, but certainly not least, for those who wish to admire the Himalayan mountains you will have countless opportunities to do so during this trip as well.

    If Bhutan has ever peaked your interest then this is the trip for you. At at only a week long, it is very manageable. So if you would like to join us, just send us a request. We’d be happy to guide you!

    If you are looking for a more adventurous journey through Bhutan, we can also lead you on this 12 day trip that includes a long trek on the Druk path.
