The Best of North India (19 days)

North India is, for many, ‘classic India’. The sweeping vistas of Rajasthan littered with forts, palaces, and heritage hotels; bustling cities of historical, political, and spiritual resonance; an array of vibrant national parks; endless historical and cultural artefacts…intrigue has no limits here. This three-week examination of Northern India aims to cover the very best on offer. Beginning in Delhi, you immediately veer away from the ‘Golden Triangle’, heading east instead to pass through intoxicating Varanasi, and Lucknow, the city of Nawabs. Pay a visit to the Taj Mahal at Agra, before continuing to regal Jaipur, then deeper into Rajasthan to witness mighty Mehrangarh in Jodhpur and the beautiful rural surrounds of Narlai. Round out the trip with two nights beside Lake Pichola in Udaipur, the shimmering City of Lakes. A lot of ground is covered, but always at a relaxed pace. There is plenty of scope for tailoring too: perhaps adding in some more national parks in central India, another tranquil homestay in rural Rajasthan, or extending on to a bustling urban hub such as Kolkata or Mumbai.
