Beyond the Sky is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Winter Sun Trips.

This itinerary offers a completely different way of experiencing this wonderful Himalayan kingdom. Perfect for both family holidays and honeymoons, Bhutan remains to this day an exclusive, romantic and adventurous destination. COMO Hotels, with the addition of Uma Punakha hotel to its already well-loved Uma Paro hotel, are ideal havens from which to explore this enchanting country.

This 11-night tailor-made tour has been created for luxury explorers who want to fully immerse themselves into Bhutanese culture, Himalayan Buddhism and, if they want, mountain sports and activities including Bhutan's national sport, archery. Highly experienced, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides will reveal the little-known wonders of their beautiful country. All this whilst enjoying some of the most attentive and intuitive service, most mouth-watering food and heavenly spa treatments found in the highest mountain range in the world. 

This luxury holiday is purely a suggested itinerary. It can be booked as is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own perfect tailor-made tour of Bhutan. Our Bhutan specialists Shalmali Paterson, Jessica Andrews and Catriona Deredas, have travelled extensively throughout Bhutan on numerous occasions over the last 10 years (we have seen it change a lot!) and will be happy to discuss your holiday and tailor it to your individual interests and requirements.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
We have been on expensive and luxurious holidays in the past, but the service and communication Ampersand has provided has far exceeded those offered by other agencies.
- Susan Ford, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
