Take some tropical time out
Southern India is sun-kissed and packed with welcoming spirit. Explore the tiny Portuguese paradise of Goa, stretch out on soft palm-fringed beaches, drift through the emerald backwaters of Kerala aboard a traditional houseboat and get spiritual in temple-soaked Tamil Nadu. The south is a place where the weather is hot and the food is hotter, so you’re in for a sizzler.
Step into the wild side
Scour the tropical undergrowth for wild tigers, watch elephant cross rushing rivers at sunrise, track the Indian Great One-Horned Rhinoceros through the bush and plod into the sunset on a camel. India is home to some truly astounding wildlife. With alpine forests to dense jungle, crocodile-filled lakes and temples overrun by monkeys, the animal world is only ever a few steps away.
Head for the hills
Northern India is a world of snowy Himalayan ridges, forested green foothills and peaceful Buddhist communities. Brilliant for a breath of fresh air after the steamy chaos of the cities, the hill stations and Himalayan villages are cool, crisp and easygoing escapes. Take the toy train through the tea hills of Darjeeling, hike through flower-filled meadows near Manali, stay with local families and watch rainbow prayer flags flutter in the mountain breeze.
Feel the far-flung romance of an India honeymoon
Start your life together with an exotic honeymoon in India. From the Pink City of Jaipur to the Blue City of Jodhpur and the giant golden sandcastle of Jaisalmer, the cities of Rajasthan are the stuff of faraway fairytales. And then there’s the Taj Mahal, an epic building of hopeless romance that will leave you gobsmacked. And that’s just the cities…
India, Nepal and Bhutan
Supersize your adventure by combining India with hidden Bhutan or gentle Nepal. Nestled in the snowy Himalayas, they’re humbling places of heartwarming beauty. In Bhutan, you can trek to monasteries clinging dramatically to cliff faces and in Nepal, you can explore the atmospheric backstreets of Kathmandu.
