South India Explorer

This three-week tour is a fascinating and hugely varied journey through India’s Deep South. Our tour encompasses some of the country’s most elaborate and iconic architecture in the form of vivid Hindu temples and charming old colonial buildings that reveal so much of India’s varied and often tempestuous past. The circuit of this stunningly beautiful region passes through a rich variety of highland, lowland and coastal scenery which truly does justice to the diversity of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. En route, we also enjoy relaxing stays at hill stations, still affording very vivid echoes of British rule; we make forays into wildlife reserves and encounter Indian elephants and a multitude of bird species and other wildlife; we visit some of the most stunning of India’s Maharaja’s palaces and learn much of the fascinating history of the country; and finally we sunbathe on the region’s idyllic tropical beaches. One of the highlights is our stay on a houseboat on board which we explore the picturesque Kerala backwaters around Alleppey. In the process too, we relish some of India’s tastiest dishes, and of course find ourselves immersed in the vibrancy that South Indian society offers.
