The most fun way to travel around India

Rail journeys are one of the greatest experiences you can have in India - a great place to share stories, slow down and watch the world go by

Train travel in India is unlike anywhere else - there’s no looking at your watch to count the minutes, but you can enjoy meeting fellow passengers, play cards and slow down as you watch India roll by out the window, chat cricket and sip a hot masala chai.

With 75,000 miles of track stretching over the vast expanse of the country, India’s railway network is the fourth largest in the world, and there are plenty adventures to be had – as well as the luxury trains available, often the most memorable experiences are to be had travelling on the normal trains Indians use every day.

Have a look at the scenic Mandovi Express which winds its way along the coastal route from Mumbai to Goa and beyond, crossing 2,000 bridges on the way.

And the old British toy trains to hill stations like Shimla, Darjeeling and Ooty are still operational and are the best ways to arrive in town.

Or take one of the regular trains through the Thar desert to Jaisalmer, to really feel the vastness and spirit of the landscape.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
