Cruise on the holy river

Enjoy a gentle rhythm of life on one of the greatest rivers in the world, with plenty of interesting stops on the way

For Hindus the Ganges is not just a holy river, but the goddess Ganga herself, flowing from Himalayan glaciers to the Bay of Bengal, bringing water and life to the vast plains of North India. By far the best way to explore all the life on its riverbanks is on a luxury river cruise. You can choose from difference sections of the river, upstream and downstream, and cruise from 4 to 15 nights. Aside from enjoying the gentle rhythm of life on the Ganges, there are lots of interesting stops along the way – ancient holy cities like Varanasi, small villages, temples and historical sites far off the tourist trail.

The ships have stylish interiors with colonial touches, complete with bar, restaurant, sun deck and spa. So go on and splash out. There is also an expert naturalist on board to point out the wildlife.

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… so we connect with local communities, and strive for sustainable travel to make your holiday special
