Cruises In India
River cruises in India provide a peaceful retreat from the madding crowds and crazy traffic in the big cities. Relax on the scenic backwaters of Kerala in the south, comprising a serene stretch of lakes, canals and lagoons. Or journey on the historically rich Ganges in the north; revered by millions of people, it flows through the Gangetic plains to the religious ghats of Varanasi.
The mighty Brahmaputra, in the northeast state of Assam, guarantees an Indian river cruise adventure into parts of the country where few visitors go, while the Hooghly or Lower Ganges offers a front row view of the riverside colonial buildings in Kolkata. Alternatively, explore the Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest and hub of the ‘Royal Bengal Tigers’; or cruise through the Bhitarkanika National Park, a mangrove wetland set on a vast delta formed by the convergence of the Padma, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers.
Our hand-picked portfolio of traditional Indian riverboats and luxurious houseboats has been carefully chosen to include remarkable vessels operated by only the most trusted of partners, preeminent pioneers of the region who offer exceptional itineraries, unrivaled knowledge and utmost levels of service.
