Heritage and Nature Trails

Kalimpong, Darjeeling, Kolkata, Hooghly River Cruise, Sundarbans, Baripada


Wind your way through West Bengal, from the charming British-era hill town of Darjeeling in the north to the wild, tiger-filled mangroves of the Sunderbans in the south. Along the way, you’ll have your fill of adventure and experience the distinct culture of east India. Go white water rafting down the Teesta River, experience the lavish lifestyle of tea planters on an estate, and enjoy starlit nights by the riverside, fuelled by bonfires and barbeque dinners.

In Kolkata, you’ll see vestiges of colonial history in heritage Victorian buildings and explore the art-and-craft-filled bylanes of this grand old city. From flower markets to potters’ collectives, synagogues to ornate temples, a local will decode the city’s layered history and culture for you. Sail down the Hooghly River past European trading towns and craft villages. Head deep into the dense mangrove forests of the Sundarbans to try and spot the elusive Bengal Tiger. And throughout your journey, you’ll sample the most delectable local food, from delicate fish curries to steamed rice puddings.
