From mountains to mystics, temples to trains, meditation to me-time, this Classical Northern India Explorer Tour has something for everyone.

Come with us and see the real, incredible, amazing, breath-taking India.  We will practice with Indian yogis and gurus, visit Swamis, attend Aarti on the banks of the river Ganges, experience fire puja ceremony, visit famous India temples, experience a journey on the Shimla “toy train”, explore the Varanasi ghats and much more!

India can be a truly transformative experience, and not a place to be taken lightly, with all the aromas, colours, language, crowds and countless other differences which can make travelling there a little intimidating for some.   We will handle everything for you from the pre-tour planning and booking through to accompanying you for the duration of your trip.

This is a 14 night tour to Northern India and some of the most sacred places on earth including Rishikesh and Varanasi.  You will create memories that will last a lifetime.
