India. From the spices, textiles, food, flower petals, saris, and turbans - colour radiates from every corner.

This 9-day adventure was crafted to give you an authentic and lesser travelled journey through the Golden Triangle route; taste your way through the winding streets and listen to the soul-stirring music of local musicians in Old Delhi, wander the grounds of the great Taj Mahal in Agra and sip a cup of chai at a cafe that empowers women survivors of gender-based violence, spot tigers in Ranthambore National Park, and opt to float above  Jaipur in a hot air balloon.

Plus, visiting India during Holi is an incredible opportunity to get a unique perspective into the country and its people. There's more to this time of year than just colour-throwing. You'll love every minute. 

This is one of Origin's more fast-paced itineraries, but its only because there is so much good to see, so little time.

Celebrate Holi

Holi is an agricultural festival in India celebrating the arrival of spring. We will be celebrating is the charming village of Mathura, one of India's most spiritual cities. We get to Mathura a day before the official celebration of Holi so that we can participate in a more relaxed celebration, and avoid the crazy crowds!
