A fantastic destination for adventurous families, Bhutan works exceptionally well for those with older kids who love the outdoors. From adrenaline-fuelled white-water rafting to contests in archery, from experiencing the lifestyle of a local farmer to meeting young monks in their remote cliffside monastery, there are so many family-friendly activities on offer that will show children a completely different way of life.
Trekking through the incredible scenery is one of the big draws of Bhutan. Whether your family is ready to take on the challenge of a hike to the legendary Tiger’s Nest or you prefer a gentler walk through one of the more accessible national parks, there is something for everyone’s pace and stamina.
We know Bhutan will appeal to families looking for a genuinely off-the-beaten-track adventure. We offer safe drivers to transport you around, engaging English-speaking guides and some exceptional hotels. Our itineraries give you the chance to immerse yourself in an ancient culture with a very different set of values to those found in western society - teenagers will be amazed by the laws on national dress and tobacco, the unreliable internet and the lack of materialism; parents are likely to feel refreshed by the simplicity and peacefulness of the Bhutanese way of life.
Finally, if you - or your children - can’t imagine a holiday without a beach, Bhutan can be combined with a relaxing stay by the sea in Thailand, Oman, The Maldives, Sri Lanka or India.
