India - a feast for the senses 
journeys for every type of traveller

Vibrant, intoxicating, confronting, astounding, pulsating and magnetic...this is India!

Possibly the most diverse nation in the world, it boasts something for everyone with snow-capped Himalayas, Kerala’s languid tropical greenery, the sacred Ganges, the shifting sands of the Thar Desert, dizzying cities, spice-laden markets, temples, castles, colonial echoes of the British Raj and so much more.

BUT, we hear you cry, where do we even begin? Worry not. Today marks the ancient Hindu festival of Holi and to join the celebration, we've handpicked selection of the most mesmerising, exotic and downright eccentric journeys for you to begin your exploration…

"India...the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for all the shows of all the rest of the globe combined" - Mark Twain
