India Holiday Extensions

Goa's pristine sands stretch around the coast almost endlessly, dotted with beach-front shacks, overlooking the turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea. Meanwhile, tigers hunt for shade amongst the plains and grasses of Ranthambore National Park, and Shimla's Toy Train winds its way through the mountains at a slow, steady pace, passing the peaks of the Himalayas, and through Kerala's backwaters, traditional houseboats glide.

Elsewhere in this vast nation, Mumbai bustles with life and history, and along the Wagah border in Amritsar, crowds cheer as the guards are changed and the flags lowered. Along the banks of the Ganges, people come to pray and wash their clothes, the spiritual and the mundane melding pragmatically in the sacred waters of India's best-known river, shimmering in the early morning light, as passenger boats with guests to Varanasi peruse the daily magic of this captivating place.

Explore some of India's fascinating facades, spending a little longer in this incredible destination with a holiday extension. Designed to highlight the very best aspects of India, our fantastic range of extension options allow you to add tailored touches to your holiday, with time to spend in India under your own steam.
