Discover for yourself what happiness truly means."
—Karen MacRae, Experience Designer

In the Gangtey region, marvel at vast spaces and small villages. In Punakha, enjoy a picnic lunch near the river and take a gentle walk to a sacred temple through rice paddies. Take in the capital of Thimpu, haggle with locals and visit its splendid Textile Museum.
Bhutan Grand Journey
This unparalleled private expedition highlights the best of what Bhutan offers. If your goal is to see as much as you can, this trip will be number one on your list. Beginning in Paro, you’ll make your way to Bumthang, Gangtey, Punakha, Thimpu and then circle back to Paro. This trip uses flights, comfortable exclusive vehicles and your own two feet. Drives can be long in certain areas, and we break this up with some good old-fashioned walking.
Bhutan Family Adventure
Bhutan is an exceptional destination for family travel. Safe, fun and adventurous, every region offers an abundance of unique experiences for all ages.

Accommodation is particularly suited, with luxury hotels offering private space and rooms large enough for families who travel together.
Art & Culture in Ancient Cities
Bhutan’s cities provide an authentic combination of modern and tradition. Art, ceremony and festivals are not a former glory of Bhutan, but a living demonstration of its whole being.
