Indian Subcontinent

Exquisite and exotic, prepare for spiritual inspiration, sensory overload and endless enchantment.


A journey to the Indian Subcontinent with Abercrombie & Kent reveals a fascinating kaleidoscope of cultures, diverse landscapes and historic heritage, ancient monuments and lip-smacking cuisine.

From north to south, India delights with its fort-strewn deserts, lush backwater canals, rich art and textile traditions, soaring mountain peaks and jaw-dropping temples and palaces at every turn. Dreamy, tropical Sri Lanka is a delightful blend of upland tea plantations, jungles, and palm-fringed beaches with World Heritage sites aplenty. The islands and atolls of the Maldives are blessed with a handful of truly exquisite private hideaways and retreats for the ultimate indulgence.

The mountain kingdom of Bhutan has remained blissfully sheltered from the outside world with a mythical beauty that is simply enchanting. And neighbouring Nepal with its deep-rooted spirituality and soaring peaks, also boasts rare wildlife encounters and bustling activity in the capital.

On a journey to the Indian Subcontinent, there are charming river trips, great rail journeys, festival celebrations, jungle adventures, mountain treks and coastal hideaways. There is rich culinary diversity and handicraft traditions. Epic landscapes and cosmopolitan cities. Whether you choose a small group journey or a tailor-made adventure, A&K’s 35 years of experience in the region is guaranteed to deliver its trademark blend of sophistication, privileged access and captivating insights no matter which countries you choose to visit, and when.
