Rajasthan, India


A trip to the desert state of Rajasthan is essential if you want to get to know India deeply. Nowhere else does India present itself as colourful and exotic as in Rajasthan. Influenced by many historical forts, palaces, havelis and the Thar Desert you can immerse yourself into a completely different world. Make encounters with the people, the shepherds and the desert dwellers or indulge yourself and travel through the gorgeous landscapes like a Maharaja . We are happy to adapt our classic Rajasthan tour to your wishes. If you are looking for an adventurous, special experience, integrate a trek on foot, by horse- or 

camel-ride through the populated desert Thar or opt to discover the Aravali range and interact with different tribal people of this land; you can also choose to include a visit to one or several National Parks to make fantastic wildlife observations; or experience the glitz and glamour of the Indian princes by choosing to stay in Rajasthan’s most beautiful and luxurious palace hotels.
