Bhutan Family Holidays - 6 Nights / 7 Days

Bhutan family holidays - a fascinating and privileged experience; rich in culture, hospitable to a fault with plenty of activities for energetic families
Bhutan is a great place for a family holiday. The Bhutanese government policy of high value low impact tourism means that few foreigners visit the kingdom and local people are extraordinarily kind and generous to visitors, even more so when you travel as a family. To make it even more appealing, children aged under 12 are exempt from the minimum daily tariff.

Bhutan Family Holidays

Although Bhutan is incredibly different to countries in the west there's no overwhelming daily culture shock to contend with. However, electricity and plumbing can be eratic and teenagers in particular may be surprised by lack of fashion and make-up choices, internet connection (which becomes less reliable the further east you go) and tobacco (its sale is forbidden).

Parents will probably take all of these things as positive reasons to visit.

Alpine Eco Trek carefully deign your holiday to take your interests into account and work with flexible guides who accompany you throughout your trip and will modify your daily activities as needed.
