This holiday is designed for travellers with an adventurous spirit who like to get away from the tourist trail, who have a desire to explore eclectic, busy and ever evolving Indian cities, but who also want to contrast urban life with some very rural, national park time.
Take time to delve into Kolkata, Varanasi and Lucknow with our signature experiences in each. You’ll journey by car, train and minimal internal flights so that you can experience the beautiful rural life and lanscape of the north as you move around. You’ll spend 6 days exploring two of India’s more remote national parks in Uttarkhand and Uttar Pradesh; allowing completely different wildlife experiences in each and, if you're lucky, a chance to spot the infamous tiger.
- Taking lunch with an art collector in his home in Kolkata
- Watching sunrise from your private boat on the River Ganges
- Exploring off-road in a jeep as you explore the inner depths of Corbett National Park
- Chatting with a farmer in rarely visited Dudhwa National Park
