Our experts say
A great way to experience rural India at a slower pace, cycling along country roads and staying in stunning heritage hotels
Suitable for seasoned cyclists as well as enthusiastic amateurs, this cycling holiday takes you off the main tourist trail as you ride past villages, farms, forts and palaces. Some of the latter are also your accommodation, as we have selected some luxurious heritage hotels for your stay.
We will provide you with good mountain bikes, an experienced guide, and transport to carry all your luggage, so you can focus on enjoying the ride. You can choose how long you want to cycle, and it’s very flexible so if you like you can break up some of the longer sections with a drive.
Remember, this is just a suggested itinerary - your own holiday can be tailored to your preference of budget, duration, locations and experiences. Get in touch to discuss your trip.
