Hand Crafted to Perfection
All our private Bhutan Holidays can be tailor made, whether you're wanting to go trekking in Bhutan or would prefer a private Bhutan cultural tour to see the magnificent Dzongs, experience the fascinating culture and see the sights. Bhutan is famous for its colourful, traditional festivals and we can arrange special Bhutan Festival Tours too where you can learn more about the various festivals and time your visit to Bhutan to coincide with one you'd like to experience. All out itineraries can be adapted to incorporate a festival. If you're travelling as a family, we have suggested Bhutan Family holidays too although many of our featured itinerary suggestions are suitable for families. Maybe you'd like to combine activities like walking, cycling and rafting as well as some sightseeing. No problem! Want witness a Bhutan Festival? Check our our Bhutan Festivals page.
Travelling to Bhutan is slightly different to other countries, although contrary to popular belief the number of tourists allowed to visit Bhutan is not restricted. However, Bhutan has a minimum daily package tariff of approx. $250 per person per day. This is often misinterpreted as being the cost of a Bhutan Visa. The cost of a Bhutan Visa is a mere $20, although as you have to travel to Bhutan with a licensed operator (like us), we obtain the visa for you. Indeed it is the daily package tariff that self-limits the number of visitors to this enchanted realm. The independent "let's travel as cheaply as possible" backpackers are kept at bay, ensuring that this unspoilt and culturally intact special Himalayan country by and large remains that way.

All the great classic Bhutan Himalayan treks like the Laya Trek and the very challenging Snowman Trek. Short treks like the Druk Path too, as well as some easy walking holidays where you can stay in hotels every night. Unlike Nepal there are no teahouses in Bhutan, but all our Bhutan treks that involve camping come with a first class fully supported camp service, porterage and an English speaking official Bhutan guide.
You can now enjoy a luxury tour of Bhutan, although the minimum daily tariff always ensures a good standard of hotel accommodation. But if you'd like to see Bhutan in style there are now some great 5* Boutique Hotels ensuring you'll experience the culture of Bhutan your way. From the Grand Tour of Bhutan to shorter tours, all or tours are exclusively private.
Bhutan has to be one of the most family friendly destinations in the world. Unlike Disneyland though, Bhutan is the real "Magic Kingdom". The Bhutanese kids learn English from an early age, so your own kids will love meeting the locals. As all our holidays are tailor made, we'll design your Bhutan Family Holiday to suit your family, but here's some interesting suggestions.
Travelling across Bhutan by bicycle is a fun and often challenging way of experiencing this charming country. What few roads there are have very little in the way of traffic to spoil the fun, and with many high road passes there's plenty of lung-bursting climbs, great views and freewheeling descents on our fully supported cycling tour.
Hike, Bike and Raft amongst glorious unspoiled scenery, see all the major highlights too. A fun and different way to enjoy the splendours of Bhutan. It's not all trekking and cultural tours in Bhutan, you can dare to be "out there" too. Go multi-active in Bhutan because you can!
Want to experience one of Bhutan's colourful, traditional spectacles. Some are now firmly tourist popular spectacles, others that are lesser known and less busy. For the lowdown on festivals in Bhutan; when, where, what etc. Our festival guide will help you choose the ones you'd like to see.
