The Great Indian Adventure

In the year India celebrates its 70th year of independence, and the 15th year of our association with it, Wild Frontiers is excited and proud to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel in style around this great country.

From the palaces of Rajasthan, to the backwaters of Kerala and from the mayhem of Kolkata to the tranquillity of Goa’s endless beaches, we will take you on a journey of discovery by way of 15 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with three esteemed India commentators to help you unlock the secrets of this beguiling country.

Using some of the region’s finest hotels, best restaurants and most engaging guides this is a voyage into the heart of the country, though her captivating urban centres and her evocative countryside. On this tour you will witness all the colour, culture and beauty of India as well as getting away from the madding crowds.
