G Adventures to return to Bhutan

G Adventures is operating trips to Bhutan from October 2022, following of the reopening of the Trans Bhutan Trail.

The Trans Bhutan Trail will open in September for the first time in 60 years after two years of extensive restoration.

G Adventures will be the first group adventure operator to take travellers along the trail when its inaugural, sold-out, departure leaves on October 2, 2022.

Two new active trekking itineraries are available to book with the operator to Bhutan in 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 with accommodation in homestays, locally-owned guest houses and hotels.

The two tours focus on trekking specially selected parts of the 403-km (250-mile) trail and connecting with local people to learn about Bhutanese life and culture.

Other long-awaited destinations returning to G Adventures’ portfolio this October are Australia and New Zealand.

Yves Marceau, Vice President of Product at G Adventures, 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 in magical Bhutan,” said Marceau. “We’ve been thrilled with how popular the new trips have been, even with the delay in reopening due to Covid.

“It’s a country we’ve run tours in for more than a decade and have long admired for its commitment to the happiness of its people and sustainable way of life, which are both philosophies that align with our values as an organization.

“G Adventures is the pioneer of community tourism and being able to give travellers an exceptional travel experience and simultaneously provide much-needed economic benefits to local people is our mission as a business.”
