Journey to India with Archers Holidays

Travel specialist Archers Holidays has launched a range of aspirational holidays inspired by the new film of Kipling's famous The Jungle Book, allowing travellers the chance to enjoy the colours, culture and incredible wildlife of India.

The new ten day India's Golden Triangle and the Tigers of Ranthambore tour features the iconic sights of Delhi and Agra; the spectacular Taj Mahal; and the ancient city of Jaipur. Guest can see Old Delhi's famous Red Fort from a cycle rickshaw, enjoy a sunset from the Agra Fort, before travelling to the Ranthambore National Park, where they can see the protected tigers from which Kipling drew inspiration for his Jungle book character Shere Khan.

To enjoy old style luxury, guests can step aboard the Deccan Odyssey train at Mumbai on Archers’ two new rail journeys: the ten day Hidden Treasures of Gujarat, and Indian Exploration – Mumbai to Delhi. In opulent style with fully-equipped guest cabins, the train's 21 air-conditioned royal coaches provide two restaurants, a lounge, and even spa and gym facilities. The luxury train holidays offer a range of daily sightseeing excursions for guests to experience the historical palaces, local traditions and cultures of Shimla, Amritsar and Goa.

Travellers can explore Northern India's cities on a new 14-day small group tour, titled Highlights of Northern India. In addition to seeing the famous Amber Fort at Jaipur and Taj Mahal, guests can take a guided walk through the back streets of Delhi and enjoy snacks in Bikaner city. They also have chances to learn how to tie a turban, visit the local Bishnoi desert tribes by jeep, and see the old block printing technique at Jaipur's Anokhi Museum.
