North India Adventure

Rose-hued cities, time-worn desert forts, and holy rivers – discover North India on this 22-day tour. From ancient ruins that punctuate peaceful countryside and everyday city life that swirls with colour and noise, India’s energy will leave you giddy with excitement and sporting a smile that’s wider than the Ganges. Deeply spiritual yet never dull or somber – the sites of North India are as alive as a crowded laneway, as vast as the Thar Desert sands, as humbling as a Varanasi dawn and as intricate as the Amber Fort. Give your senses a well-earned kick and delve into a North Indian adventure that ticks all the boxes.
