A world of elephants and tigers, turmeric-coloured villages, coconut-studded coastlines and dazzling cities – India's magic will never cease to amaze you.
Delhi is the second most poulated metropolis in India after Mumbai, is full of stunning temples, ancient tombs and amazing architecture. It is also a great starting point for the journey to Agra to see the Taj Mahal, and south to tour around majestic Rajasthan, otherwise known as the Land of Kings.
Rajasthan is known as the Land of Kings, and to travel around this magnificent region is to immediately see why. Comprising the Great Indian Desert and the Aravalli Range, one of the world’s oldest mountain ranges, Rajasthan is bursting with culture, art and rich cultural traditions. The shopping here is fantastic and you can buy your entire baggage allowance worth in knick knacks in absolutely no time at all.
Furthest north, we can organise luxury safaris, fishing trips and hiking in India’s beautiful, mountainous region such as an exhilarating motorbike trip through the valleys, visting the villages or simply doing a spot of yoga over the most inspiring views in the world.
Home to some of India’s most beautiful parks including Kanha National Park and Pench National Park, central India is perfect for off the beaten path safaris. We have handpicked a number of luxury lodges, tented camps and safaris where you can relax and view the amazing wildlife indigenous to the region.
Southern India most definitely moves at a slower pace of life than the north and is more traditional, and is a lot more rustic than Rajasthan for example. For the best beaches we recommend going west towards Kerala.
If you’re looking for an exciting way to do India, Lightfoot Travel has got just the thing for you. Soak up the pulsating energy of Delhi’s sounds, sights and aromas. Trek the twists and turns of the Himalayas and sink into your luxury lodge at sunset. Go on a tiger safari in Madya Pradesh and enjoy camel festivals in Rajasthan. You can even ride a classic Royal Enfield Bullet motorbike through the sun-soaked hills of Ladakh. To slow down, head for the sandy beaches and tranquil backwaters of Kerala staying on a traditional houseboat or a boutique beachside property. And let’s not forget India’s atmospheric train journeys, colonial tea trails, or her most iconic of palaces, the magnificent Taj Mahal.
Sound like your cup of chai? India can be a hard place to travel – some of her infrastructure is as rickety as her rickshaws. We know India well and we work with a great team of English-speaking staff on the ground, so with Lightfoot’s help you can expect a trip as smooth as ghee.
