Visit North India’s exotic destinations from Delhi to Varanasi and join a far-flung adventure to one of the planet’s most exotic destinations.

North India Unplugged

Day 1-2 Delhi

Discover the beating heart of Old Delhi - its narrow streets burst with stores selling silk, copper and spices. Board an overnight sleeper train and head towards Rajasthan.

Day 3-5 Jaisalmer/Thar Desert

From Jaisalmer, experience nomadic life on an overnight camel safari through the Thar Desert. Eat local specialties by the camp fire and sleep under a blanket of stars.

Day 6-7 Jodhpur

Sip on a lassi and admire views of the colossal Mehrangarh Fort. Wander among colourful saris and sparkling bangles in the Sadar Bazaar, one of the oldest markets in India.

Day 8-10 Udaipur

India's most romantic city, Udaipur, is a centre for artists and musicians. Why not visit the dramatic Monsoon Palace or have dinner at a rooftop restaurant overlooking the lake?

Day 11-12 Pushkar

Mingle with holy men in spiritual Pushkar and seek out a bargain in side-street bazaars. Early risers can take a walk to Savitri Temple for an inspirational sunrise.

Day 13-14 Jaipur

See the intricate, pink sandstone latticework of the Hawa Mahal, the 'Palace of the Winds'. Have a unique cinema experience at an optional Bollywood movie screening.

Day 15 Bharatpur

Take an optional trip to the famous Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary, a welcome relief from the chaos of modern India.

Day 16-17 Agra

Discover spectacular views from the Red Fort and admire the elegant architecture of the Taj Mahal of Agra - sunrise over this iconic monument is worth rising early for.

Day 18-20 Varanasi

The holiest place for Hindus, Varanasi is a city of ritual and ceremony. Walk the ghats for a heady experience or hire a boat and see the city from the water.

Day 21-22 Delhi

Watch the sprawl of India’s capital come into view from the window of the overnight train. Enjoy a free day exploring the sights and sounds of the city. If you want to pick up any souvenirs for friends back home, now is the perfect opportunity. Then it’s time to say goodbye to confounding, overwhelming, incredible India.
