Active Destination Spotlight: India

india spiceHow do you start describing India? It’s a feast for the senses – all of them. Crazy, chaotic, overwhelming  -and magical.

One of the best ways to experience India is with one of the active holiday companies we work with.  You’ll be in a small group, on an itinerary carefully planned to combine cultural immersion with some of the comforts of home.

Who’s suited to a trip to India? “Just because you like Indian food at home doesn’t mean you’re ready for a trip there!”  counsels Pat Rochon, Vision Travel’s senior manager of active travel who has visited the country three times. “It can be such an overwhelming destination,  it’s best if you’ve travelled a fair bit in third world countries in Asia, Africa or Latin America and enjoyed those experiences.”

Houseboat on Kerala backwaters, IndiaA suggested place to start in this vast country is with a trip to Rajasthan. Here you can do a circle tour which will take in the Taj Mahal and Jaipur, the Pink City as well as Delhi.  An example of such a tour would be Intrepid Travel’s 15 day Classis Rajasthan which even includes stays in a former royal residence and a fortified mansion.

No matter what area of India you visit, it’s guaranteed it will be unforgettable.  No wonder they say that if you think you’re well travelled, you’ve not travelled until you’ve been to India.
