Bhutan holidays

Authentic tailor-made holidays in Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon.

Tailor-made holidays in Bhutan

Travellers taking a holiday in Bhutan often describe it as a unique, deeply spiritual and mystical experience. This little Buddhist kingdom in the Himalayas is an adventure like no other. Visit the country whose measure of success is its gross national happiness!

We loved the mountains and space, the birds and flowers, the tranquillity, temples and monasteries, the people, feeling safe, and never being quite sure what tomorrow would bring. The trek up to the Tiger’s Nest was tough, but the reward was spectacular.

Wonderful things to do in Bhutan

Reasons to come to Bhutan include the breathtaking landscape punctuated by equally breathtaking architecture and fascinating culture. You will find yourself visiting incredible monasteries and fortresses (dzongs), trekking in Himalayan landscapes, and being entranced by the traditions and cultures of the Bhutanese people.

When to go to Bhutan

As far as the climate is concerned, the best times to visit Bhutan are spring (April to May) and autumn (September to November). The heaviest rains come in July and August. However, when deciding when to go, you might also want to consider one of the various festivals which take place in Bhutan and these happen all year-round.

Places we love to stay in Bhutan

Here you’ll find a small collection of our favourite places to stay in Bhutan, though as an independent tour operator specialising in tailor-made holidays, we actually sell a wider choice of Bhutanese properties than we show. Please note, however, that the standard of accommodation for most properties outside of the main chain hotels (Amankora, Taj and Uma) is quite basic.
