Experiences

Helibiking in Bhutan

Bhutan is a mythical Kingdom on the eastern edge of the Himalayas where ancient traditions and modern modes of life collide.

When to go:
March – April, October – December

Be the first to carve your own tracks down previously untouched terrain, through undulating grassy landscapes and past vibrant rhododendrons. Heli-biking combines exhilarating helicopter adventure with off-road mountain biking. This experience allows you to access the inaccessible, safe in the knowledge that at the end of an adrenaline fuelled day you will return to the comfort and serenity of your luxury accommodation, perfectly situated in picturesque Himalayan landscapes. Each experience can be tailored to suit all interests, abilities and time constraints.

Beyond the epic biking, Bhutan offers a plethora of immersive experiences. Bask in wonder with a scenic hike to the sacred Buddhist temple of Paro Taktsang, otherwise known as the ‘Tiger’s Nest’, that artfully clings to the cliffside of Bhutan’s upper Paro Valley.

Start the day early, with a dawn hike to the Gangtey Monastery to witness the morning prayers. Alongside an ex-Olympian, learn the traditional skill of archery, the national sport of the Kingdom, so that you will never miss a shot again. White-water raft down the Punak Chhu river, speeding through the secluded and pristine valley and embracing the luscious surroundings, before stopping at the Wangdue Phodrang Dzong, 1638 fortress.

Take a spectacular mountain flight up and over the Dochu la Pass, landing deep amongst the towering peaks. Here, you will pay a visit to the highlander community of Gasa, home to semi-nomadic yak herders who will show you their local delicacies for you to sample. Hike through the valley, descending to the picturesque grounds of Zurig Dzong, overlooking the palace and the entire valley stretching away into the mountains.
