Indian Subcontinent Luxury Holidays

Travelling to the Indian Subcontinent introduces you to a bewitching land of passionate people, glorious landscapes and soulful spirituality. Contemporary India is rapidly developing, but it still has a firm grip on its ancient roots; the country's long, and often tumultuous, religious history has borne an abundance of sacred sites and long-held rituals that survive in this modern age. It's just one element of the culture that forms part of a confronting experience that begins the moment you step off the plane, train or rickshaw – this is a region where the getting there is just as fun as the experience.
But the subcontinent is more than just India, captivating though she may be. Like a tiny teardrop rolling into the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is a jewel of dazzlingly white beaches, verdant tea plantations and rain forested peaks, not to mention ancient treasures to explore. Nepal packs a serious punch thanks to its spine of 1,500 mountains over 5,000m, making it the perfect place for a serious walk, while tiny, unique Bhutan and its hospitable people have embraced tourism with open arms. The rewards here are plentiful and well worth the effort to get here. Whether it's the swish of a jade-trimmed sari, the lulling hum of a train on tracks or the flash of a wide smile, the Indian Subcontinent is a vibrant region full to bursting for those who are out for adventure. 

Travelling to the Indian Subcontinent with A&K
The Indian sub-continent with its kaleidoscope of faiths and peoples is an intricate tapestry of contrasts that make it consistently colourful and full of character.

Holidaying in India offers the opportunity to enjoy diverse experiences, from the snow-capped Himalaya to the arid deserts of Rajasthan, from cities teeming with bazaars to the laid-back tropics of the south. Travelling across India's enchanting landscape is memorable in itself but a holiday to India with Abercrombie & Kent has no limits. We can arrange anything from a private air charter and the incredible pan-India Maharajas' Express to a game of elephant polo to ensure that you are fully exposed the region's magical qualities.

Further afield go in search of tiger in the National Parks or explore North East India and discover hidden valleys and indigenous tribes. For more information about India and the full collection of properties we recommend, please see our India holidays 2016, 2017 page.

Trek the magical Himalaya in Nepal. Sri Lanka is the land of smiles and hospitality - the natural friendliness of the Sinhalese will undoubtedly make your holiday there very special. The wildlife is striking from jungle birds with remarkable colouring to Yala National Park famed for its leopard. It is also extremely good value. The unique way of life and timeless traditions of the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan are virtually untouched by the influences of the 21st Century . Experience the ribald laughter and colour of tsechus (festivals) in Bhutan and the welcome and generosity of its peoples.
Our experts all have first-hand experience of the countries of the Indian sub-continent and will take great pride in working with you to design the perfect holiday for you in this fascinating part of the world.
