Live The Adventure has been organising trips to some of the world’s most inhospitable climates for more than 25 years and founder Ant Eddies-Davies is proud to be the only company outside Bhutan chosen to promote the race.

“We have spent many years with the people of Bhutan, fostering incredible relationships on the ground and promoting truly sustainable tourism,” says Ant. “It’s what makes our trips so successful – seeing Bhutan like no-one else sees it by foot, bike, kayak and raft.”

We’ve spoken with people who’ve been to Bhutan and all they’ve seen are the temples and monasteries – one after another. Naturally these are an important part of the country but our trips are about experiencing the country in a fresh and unique way.
