A houseboat sailing in Kerala backwaters during sunset, India

15 days
from £1,393 per person

South India - Temples and Waterways

We love...

Taking a jungle walk or bamboo rafting in Periyar, keeping our eyes peeled for elephants soaking in the water and sunbathing on the riverbanks.

Experience the spiritual roots of Southern India, from the colonial-era powerhouses of Chennai and Puducherry to the ancient Chola Empire capital of Tanjore, and the spectacular Hindu temple complexes of Madurai. Discover spice farms in the countryside and wildlife in Thekkady, before winding down with a leisurely houseboat tour on the Indian backwaters in Kumarakom. It’s a journey that will leave you with a deep appreciation for Southern India’s rich history and cultural heritage.
