Even though I have spent many years in India I still uncover something new to love every day, from the breathtaking Indian Himalayas, to the diversity and ancient majesty of the Northern deserts, to the beauty and charm of the South, this country is a microcosm of the world.

India is bound to hold an abundance of treasures and wonder that makes holidays to India worthwhile.

Visit India, home to over a billion people, contains over 30 unique sub-regions that, when combined, create hundreds of languages, cultures, gods and cuisines, there is something here to please all kinds of travellers. The lunar landscapes, Buddhist tranquillity, and crystal lakes of Ladakh make it one of my favourite places. A trek through the snow deserts will enthral even a seasoned traveller. Rajasthan in North India is worthy of its name. Translated as “Land of the Maharajahs,” this state is dotted with royal palaces, imposing forts, and ancient relics, all against the backdrop of the undulating dunes of the Great Indian Desert. Kerala, with its tranquil backwaters, lush tea gardens, exotic beaches and ancient Ayurveda, is truly the jewel in the South Indian crown.

Holidays to India are an unforgettable and rewarding experience, especially for those who wish to seek something different from their daily humdrum.

Allow us to tailor make a tour based on your personal interests and travel passions.

Trekking the Indian Himalayas

Trekking in the Indian Himalayas is a rewarding experience inside and out. The northernmost part of the country with its outdoor adventure, fresh air, and beautiful Buddhist temples, make it the best place for holidays to India. The trekking routes and mountain trails in this region provide travellers with a truly magnificent views of the majestic Himalayan peaks, where you will experience unforgettable authentic local encounters that will enthral even a seasoned traveller. The best time for this trip to India to visit Ladakh and the Indian Himalayas is the summer season of May to September.

Tour North India

Rajasthan in North India translates to “Land of the Maharajahs,” and it is well worthy of the name. The state is dotted with royal palaces, imposing forts, and ancient relics, all against the backdrop of the undulating dunes of the Great Indian Desert.

Tours to this part of North India are perfect for travellers seeking cultural discovery among the remnants of historical civilizations. Northern holidays to India can range from discovering Yoga ashrams in the Himalayan foothills of Rishikesh, princely palaces and ancient forts of the Rajputs in Rajasthan, to colonial heritage in Calcutta, and the erotic stone temples of Khajuraho.

North India is a perfect introduction to Indian culture both old and new. Those wishing to venture off the beaten track can visit lesser known but equally enchanting destinations of the Gujarat salt desert or the ethnic tribal communities of the Far East. The best time to explore the North of India is from October to April when you have access to brilliant blue skies and moderate temperatures.

Tour South India

Perhaps you wanted to travel to India in search of lush greenery and a gentler way of life. If so, Southern India is the perfect destination for your holidays to India. Deemed to be "softer" than its Northern counterpart, this region offers the beauty of its beaches (Goa, Kerala, and Andaman Islands), extraordinary mountains of Western Ghats, and intricate heritage temples. Your journey from Mumbai to the Andaman Islands will be studded with mouth-watering coastal food, smiling locals, exuberant nature, and the relaxing pleasures of Ayurveda. This region is pleasantly warm all year but to thoroughly enjoy the South of India, it is best visited in the mild temperatures of winter, from November to March to avoid the heavy rains.
