Though part of Asia, the Indian subcontinent seems worlds away from the nearby Southeast Asia or East Asia. Moving from the peaks of the snow-covered Himalayas in the northern part of the country to the famous sand dune deserts of royal Rajasthan, the massive metropolis of New Delhi to the surprisingly laidback tropical south, which is home to lush rainforests and languid waterways, one can luxuriate in a variety of unique landscapes. Whether taking a Darjeeling trip package from Kolkata from city to family owned tea plantation or entering the other worldly scenery of Kashmir on a Delhi to Ladakh trip package the Secret Retreats concierges are ready to tailor your India travels to suit. Of course, the countless different customs, cultures, cuisines and communities found throughout this great country also add to incredible India’s ongoing appeal. The birthplace of some of the world’s greatest religions and teachings, from Buddhism to yoga, and with a population of more than 1.3 billion people, India always has something to enchant explorers, regardless of whether you are on your very first visit or have already spent months criss-crossing and exploring this continent of a country.
With so much to offer, it’s often best to choose one region and dive deep into its delights rather than try to organise a whirlwind tour. Carefully-curated India holiday tour packages from the people who know the country the best – its locals – help you make the most of your precious time. And the Secret Retreats Concierges, Asia locals themselves, always work with community based teams for the best on the ground knowledge and support in each destination.
Discover India from north to south with the best travel packages in India, including luxury India tour packages, from Secret Retreats.

Feel the intrigue with adventure tour packages in IndiaJourneying through the mighty Himalayas provides a highly adventurous experience few explorers can pass up. Trekking tour packages in India take guests on thrilling mountain routes past rural villages and even more remote vistas. The northern territory of Ladakh and its capital of Leh, often serve as a popular base for adventure trip packages in India and heading into the Himalayas. Framed by snow-capped peaks and home to picturesque stupas, an impressive palace, winding paths and a traditional bazaar, visitors often select Leh Ladakh tour packages from Delhi, moving from the capital city to the rugged northern part of the country and then spending a couple of days in Leh before beginning their Himalayan trek.
Sink into relaxation in southern IndiaIt’s no secret that India is an assault on the senses – invigorating and thrilling yet overwhelming at times. Those looking to leisurely spend their days know to make their way south, to the tranquil states of Kerala and Goa. Kerala holiday packages India allow travellers to slowly glide through the region’s distinct backwaters on charming hand-built houseboats. A must-do while in the south, these dreamy excursions often include overnight stops and delicious local dishes cooked directly on board thanks to a private chef. Goa, meanwhile, is known for its relaxed beach scene where one can easily spend several days – or perhaps weeks – enjoying the region’s chilled out coastline and back-to-nature pleasures. But don’t ignore the great cities, and our luxury holiday packages in India include a 4 day luxury tour of one its most fascinating cities, the holy city of Varanasi.
