At Bhutan Homestay we want to understand your expectations and interests prior to developing an itinerary. We will then tailor a tour programme matching your preferences as closely as possible. All our tours can roughly be divided into the following categories:
- Cultural Tours
- Trekking Tours
- Combined Tours (with short treks and/or hikes)
- Special Interest Tours
You can find itinerary samples of all categories below. Festivals can be woven into any of our sample itineraries if your dates and the location in Bhutan match. We will let you know which time of the year is best suited for a successful implementation of your favored itinerary.

Most guests would like to visit Bhutan in October because of the many festivals. Whilst this is understandable it also leads to places being crowded with tourists. It is possible to travel to Bhutan throughout the year (except July, the worst monsoon month). The East for instance is very pleasant during winter months as is the South. Also you are less likely to bump into fellow travelers all the time.
Bhutan Homestay also promotes special interest tours. The themes can cover textiles and other art & crafts, Buddhist pilgrimages, photography, village anthropology, agriculture, food production and culinary, music and much more.
Bhutan Homestay can also deal with logistics for business trips and cultural programs for conferences as well as University excursions and research trips.
Children do not want to sit in the car for too long and they will quickly get “dzonged out”. But kids are curious! We offer family-friendly ways of travelling, including activities for children. These include horse riding, staying at homes where kids are around, visiting schools and interesting projects, engage with nature and animals and much more. We also offer a very high degree of flexibility.
It has become more popular for women to travel alone or in groups with other women. We can design special tours for women and if desired put a focus on female livelihoods in Bhutan. We will make sure that a female guide will be assigned if expressly requested.
You can also book Bhutan Homestay tours with our European partners in Austria and Germany. That way you will be able to combine the advantages of booking through an agent at home while enjoying our personalized services.
Below you will find tourist sites sorted by region. It may help you understand better what you are interested in. This list can never be complete though. We are happy to include your own suggestions as long as these activities comply with the rules and regulations for visitors coming to Bhutan.
