Luxury India Holidays

India is a world in itself. Vast and varied from the deserts of Rajasthan to the High Himalayas, India is among our most compelling destinations for cultural immersion and unforgettable adventure. India is a world in itself. Vast and varied from the deserts of Rajasthan to the High Himalayas, India is among our most compelling destinations for cultural immersion and unforgettable adventure.
Why India?
Whether you’re aboard the magnificent Himalayan Railway journeying between culture-rich Kolkata and the famed tea estates in mountainous foothills, touring the storied sites of India’s Golden Triangle, or relaxing on the sun-washed beaches of Kerala, India is full of surprises. We thrill in the country’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Taj Mahal and the Great Living Chola Temples, yet we also love getting away from it all – escaping into the likes of Kashmir Valley and Hemis National Park.

Wildlife enthusiasts too will relish an adventure through the wilds of India, with opportunities for tracking snow leopard, tiger and birds of prey. And there’s no better way to unwind than aboard one of India’s scenic – and luxurious – riverboat cruises through the Ganges Basin. Let Journeysmiths introduce you to the magnificence and diversity of India.
  • Incredibly diverse landscapes and regions throughout the country.
  • Historic riverboat tours.
  • Breathtaking railway journeys.
  • Track rare wildlife including tiger and snow leopard.
  • Discover a wealth of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
  • Enjoy exclusive accommodations for privacy and comfort.

That collage of glimpses will be there to savour years after you return.
