G Adventures restarts Bhutan, Australia and NZ trips
The Kingdom of Bhutan next month reopens the historic Trans Bhutan Trail for the first time in 60 years.
The trail will be officially reopened in a formal ceremony in Bhutan on September 28, 2022.
As an exclusive launch partner G Adventures will be the first operator to take travellers along the Trans Bhutan Trail when the inaugural, sold-out, departure leaves on October 02, 2022.
G Adventures is also resuming trips to Australia and New Zealand this September.
, says the operator is excited to be heading back to these three countries which are some of the last to reopen to foreign travellers, and to be bringing tourism dollars back into local communities, specifically in Bhutan.
“We’re honoured to be working with the Bhutan Canada Foundation and the Trans Bhutan Trail to launch this newly restored route, and we’ve been thrilled with how popular the new trips have been,” Yves Marceau, VP of Product at G Adventures
There are two new active trekking itineraries available to book in Bhutan into 2023.
There is an 11-day Camp the Trans Bhutan Trail trip which features camping and homestays, and a 12-day Highlights of the Trans Bhutan Trail itinerary.
The two tours focus on trekking specially selected parts of the 403-km (250-mile) trail.
The trail features camping spots and overnights in comfortable local homestays.
