The Story

Best time to go: October Half Term, Christmas Holidays, February Half Term, Easter Holidays
Best for: Family Holidays, Cultural & Immersive

There are so many varied experiences in Bhutan that children will absolutely adore.  It is an adventure playground, where you can trek through remote villages, raft down Himalayan rivers, visit monasteries meeting Buddhist monks who are the same age of them, make prayer flags and even create their own stamps. If you children are under 12, then the government waive most of the visa royalty fees, and as you are travelling as a family, you also get get classed as a group, so again you save a little more. This itinerary combines Paro, Thimphu and Punakha, so you aren’t doing too many long drives, but get to experience all the diversity which Bhutan has to offer. It goes without saying that you will have your own comfortable six-seater vehicle (so lots of space for bags and children), a private driver and also a personal guide. The day-to-day experience can be adapted to suit the ages of your children, as we know every family holiday needs to be customised totally around you. End your holiday with some beach time in Oman.

Customise Your Itinerary

We can tweak and change any element of this itinerary and you can depart on any day you want, add nights here and there, and we can fully customise your day-to-day experiences depending on your interests. Here are just a few ideas of many that we can look at and discuss when we come to plan your tailor-made itinerary.

Idea 1

There are countless beach options to end a family holiday to Bhutan. Maybe fly down to Bangkok and onto the beach hotels in Phuket or Koh Samui.

Idea 2

Upgrade any of the hotels on the itinerary. Uma Paro has got a swimming pool which might be of interest. The Amankora Punakha also has a swimming pool - something children love after a day exploring.

Idea 3

You could spend a little longer in Nepal beforehand by heading off to the Annapurna Region, wildlife in Chitwan National Park or spending longer in Kathmandu.
