India Holidays -The very spice of life

From 2015 Worldwide Holidays is adding India to its already fascinating collection of exotic destinations. In addition to your own unaccompanied itinerary why not consider the inside track with a personal touch As our introduction to this new adventure, our very own Cherrie with her husband, Geoff, have put together a once in a lifetime Grand Tour of northern India for a small group of 6-8 people which they'll accompany - so you'll share their very personal knowledge and experience of this rich and rewarding country. It sets off at the end of February next year - so you'll need to be quick to join in.

Exotic Landscape

India offers virtually every kind of landscape and terrain, from the towering mountains of the Himalayas to submerged coastal areas of West Bengal, the deserts of Rajasthan to the tropical rainforest of Meghalaya, the open arable plains of central India to the verdant banks of the Ganges and her other major rivers. You'll never cover it all in a single visit but India will always be there to intrigue and fascinate the curious traveller.

Unique Wildlife

Home to the largest remaining genetically viable population of tiger, the Bengal; India is also host to a vast array of prey species and other diverse predators. Together with a kaleidoscope of stunning flowering trees, medicinal and herbal plants the picture is colourfully completed by some of the most beautiful birds you're ever likely to see.

Tropical Climate

Although India has a climate for every taste, the Tropic of Cancer passes through the middle of India, and the bulk of the country can be regarded as climatically tropical. It is however home to a variety of climatic regions, from tropical in the south to temperate and alpine in the Himalayan north; where elevated regions receive sustained winter snowfall. The nation's climate is strongly influenced by the Himalayas and the Thar Desert and endures months long periods of monsoon in mid-year.

Getting About

There are daily and direct flights to Delhi and Mumbai from the UK. Once in the country, it is easy to travel around using air conditioned vehicles and trains and there is a domestic flight network throughout the country.

No matter how many times we return to India we always find something new and exciting so we are looking forward to introducing this wonderful country to you
