India is a land of fantasy, colour and intrigue and bristles with a mind-stirring mix of landscapes and cultural traditions. From the soaring snow-dusted mountains of the far north to the steamy sun-washed beaches of the deep south, India’s dramatic terrain is breathtaking. Along with abundant natural beauties, exquisitely carved temples rise majestically out of pancake-flat deserts and crumbling old fortresses peer over plunging ravines. The complex culture of this magnificent 5000 year old civilisation has long captivated the imagination. India’s sheer diversity and cultural strength cannot fail to impress even the most seasoned traveller. Travelling anywhere in India is a visually rich experience, though for your special celebration, we’ve chosen an experience that is more than just visual. You’ll stay in palaces, dine on your own private balcony over-looking the Taj Mahal, sightsee in a vintage car, explore a fort riding an elephant, discover inner harmony through yoga, be enriched with a spa treatment floating on a lake. Your journey through this intoxicating country will blaze in your memory long after you’ve left its shores. India – incredible India!
