Luxury trips and wildlife adventures

India

India

A land of colour and contrast

India is a land of unimaginable contrasts. Experience the splendour of opulent palaces that preside over bustling bazaars. Seek solace in ancient temples hidden amid chaotic cities. Venture to the icy peaks of the Himalayas or delve into dense, steamy jungles fringed by desert. As India travel specialists, we use our deep knowledge of this vast country to curate tailor-made luxury travel experiences. Our India holidays take you to the heart of every destination you visit.

Explore Rajasthan's majestic palaces, where luxury and extravagance know no bounds. Discover Jodhpur, crowned by the imposing Mehrangarh Fort that shadows labyrinthine streets below. Discover the beauty of Udaipur, the "City of Lakes," home to remarkable museums showcasing the state's rich heritage.

Beyond the Golden Triangle, our luxury trips in India can also include thrilling wildlife encounters. Travel to the Himalayas to search for the elusive snow leopard. You'll join expert tracking guides and traverse wild mountain paths for time-stopping sightings of these magnificent cats. Explore the national parks in Gujarat, where Bengal tigers, Asiatic lions and leopards roam the dusty shrublands and forests.

In India, luxury extends beyond the high walls of royal palaces—it resides in the warmth of its people. With our local guides, you'll discover authentic travel experiences that connect you with real lives and places. As our Travel Researcher, Emily Cadzow, describes, "India opens access to real people living a completely different life. Our tailor-made trips to India feel fresh and authentic from beginning to end."

When to visit India

For the best time to visit India, the period between October and March offers optimal conditions across most of the country. During these months, the monsoon season recedes, leaving clear skies and comfortable temperatures. If you're keen to explore Ladakh or try trekking in the Himalayas, the best time of year is from July to September.
