Bhutan Cultural Expedition

Bhutan Luxury Cultural Expedition

  • Type


    The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.


    Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.


    Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.

  • Support
    Daytime Guided


    Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.

    Daytime Guided

    Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.

    24/7 Guided

    Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.

  • Hotels


    We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.


    These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

  • Level

    “I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”


    “I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”


    “I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Immersed in Culture, Lost in Time

Gross National Happiness is an official development goal in Bhutan. We haven’t seen the numbers, but we’re pretty confident they’ve hit their annual targets. Set against the backdrop of sacred mountains, this isolated kingdom offers an entirely unique travel experience. Granted permission to be among the mere 14,000 visitors permitted each year, we make the most of it. Life-altering moment #523: en route to Punakha, we can stop in at the remote Tashigang monastery overlooking the Thimphu Valley, where the lamas and monks greet us, sip tea with us, and then bless our journey in an elaborate (not to mention highly musical) prayer ceremony. There’s more where that came from, but sadly, we’ve hit our space limit. Fortunately, Bhutan’s wonders know none.

Activity Level What’s Included Gear


We are in the foothills of the Himalayas, so some hilly terrain is unavoidable, and this should be taken into account when preparing for the trip. We reach a maximum altitude of 3,900m (12,800 ft.) with options up to 4,200m (14,000 ft.).

The Traveller

“I walk regularly and enjoy the feeling of achievement I get from a good hike.”

The Terrain

Varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
