Nature Holidays in India
Spanning more than 1.2 million square miles, India is both vast and varied. Its landscape includes Himalayan peaks and snowy plateaux, tropical jungles, verdant and hilly tea plantations, coastal sunshine and urban hubs. There is no one way to experience India—but if you want to get to know this country, we recommend getting outdoors.
Our holidays in India include a range of outdoor-focussed itineraries, but these are just a starting point for you and your personal travel specialist to begin customising your trip.
Enjoy tiger safaris and wildlife excursions
India’s tigers are, for many, a thrilling part of the landscape, and we offer tours with experienced guides that can take you into the jungles that these big cats call home. Enjoy a wildlife tour in Ranthambore National Park, one of the best places to spot tigers in their natural habitat. Or, travel through the imagination of Rudyard Kipling on a jungle tour where you seek tigers while riding on a local elephant.
Relax on an Indian river cruise
River cruising in India is a recommended way to ensure you see plenty of the landscape, without having to unpack your bags regularly and change locations. A cruise along the Brahmaputra River in Assam allows you to enjoy a backdrop of fragrant forests and national parks from your comfortable river ship, and added excursions ensure that you also have plenty of opportunities to get close to the local ways of life. We also offer Ganges river cruises, cruises through Kerala, and more.
Try a Himalayan mountain holiday
Head to northern India for a journey through Himalayan villages and towns, and witness how the influence of these ancient mountains has affected local customs and cultures. From Shimla, a foothill town with a colonial past, to Dharamsala, the residence of the Dalai Lama in his exile from Tibet, there is plenty to discover in this region that is unlike anything else you’ll encounter in India.
