Highlights & Activities

Guided meditation with a Buddhist Monk teacher
Visit the nearby Shedra, an institute where monks learn Buddhist philosophy, poetry, logic, meditation, and debate for guidance in a meditation practice to overcome stress, develop a peaceful mind, and to generate kindness. Before the meditation class, feel free to converse with the instructor on meditation or any other aspect of Buddhism.

Traditional Hot Stone Bath
An ancient Bhutanese tradition, Hot Stone Baths are believed to hold medicinal benefits arising from the water’s heat, minerals released from the rock, and local herbs collected from nearby Bhutanese forests. Rejuvenate with a deep soak in the healing bath, crafted from local pine wood and heated by large river boulders.
Practice the art of Archery
Khuru (darts) and Bhutan’s national sport Dha (archery) are the most popular sports for the Bhutanese. There are traditional bows and sets of darts to equip adventurous challengers, whilst accomplished archers in Gangtey are happy to teach you the basics.

Make butter and Cheese on a family farm
Walk in the footsteps of a local and visit a traditional farmhouse in Gangtey Valley, immersing yourself in the community and learning more about their rich culture. Join a family to experience how they make hand-made traditional butter and cheese, or help them harvest potatoes.
Hike to the ultimate mountain restaurant
Embark on a 30-40 minute hike towards the meditation cliff standing at 3,400m, passing through towering bushes of jade-hued bamboo or, in spring, vivid rhododendrons. Hikers are rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of Gangtey Valley and the Himalayas. Walk along the ridge line to see the secluded meditation huts before enjoying a breakfast or lunch with once-in-a-lifetime views.

Rediscovering and Prioritizing Traditional Foodways on Fogo Island, Newfoundland

Getting away from it all is Fogo Island’s speciality. An island off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada in the North Atlantic Ocean, Fogo Island is a place guided and dictated by nature. With seven seasons, the island shifts and changes depending on the time of year but what remains constant is its power to connect people with what is essential.
