This exciting off-the-beaten-track overland trip takes you on a journey through Karnataka, visiting Mysuru and Hampi - both with their own world heritage sites - and then getting away from it all at two beautiful boutique hotels in the plantations of Coorg and Chikmagalur.
Nagarhole National Park offers plenty of opportunity for wildlife experiences, and the adventure closes with some relaxation at the beach in Goa.
Uniquely, this holiday is designed using alternatives to domestic flights. This makes for a fantastic way to absorb the country's atmosphere and scenery in a way that many visitors miss out on.
