Delhi, Shimla & Chandigarh /Itinerary

Journey to the Himalayan Foothills


Day /1


Fly from London Heathrow to Delhi with British Airways. You will be met on arrival and transferred to The Imperial, New Delhi for a two-night stay. (BB)

The Imperial

Day /2



Today, discover the city on a guided tour. In Old Delhi, the Indian spirit and vibe you’ve imagined comes alive on a rickshaw ride through the buzzing bazaars of chaotic Chandni Chowk, before visits to noteworthy historical sites including 17th century Jama Masjid, the Mughal empire’s Red Fort and Raj Ghat where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated. In New Delhi, explore one-time imperial residences and war memorials including The Presidential Palace and India Gate. (BB)

The Imperial

Day /3 - 5

Shimla, in the Himalayas

Shimla, in the Himalayas

Fly to Chandigarh, before a long transfer up to Wildflower Hall, An Oberoi Resort for a three-night stay. Boasting endless vistas of the sweeping Himalayan valleys from almost every angle, the hotel itself is enveloped within pine and cedar-flanked forests - the remote location alone is worth every minute of the five hour drive. Journey through the lush green misty mountains aboard the historic UNESCO World Heritage Kalka-Shimla Toy Train, as it zigzags through the lofty pines. Shimla’s must-see landmarks include a Hindu temple and Viceregal Lodge - the British Viceroy of India’s immaculate stately home and former summer residence. A stroll back along the Mall to Scandal Point offers a chance to look inside Christ Church and Gaiety Theatre. (BB)

Day /6 - 7



Journey back to Chandigarh for a two-night stay at The Oberoi Sukhvilas Resort & Spa. Against a backdrop of the Siswan Forest Range the resort presents a peaceful place for some R&R. Rise early to the echoing sounds of wildlife and experience the therapeutic natural powers of ‘forest bathing’. A private guided tour of India’s first planned city will take in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Capital Complex, as well as Rock Garden – a huge open-air exhibition that has recycled discarded items and junk into eccentric sculptures and art. Later there’s a chance to go yachting and rowing at Sukhna Lake at the foothills of the majestic Shivalik range. (BB)

Day /8

Return home

Fly back to Delhi for an overnight stay at JW Marriott Hotel New Delhi Aerocity with breakfast, before your return flight home to London Heathrow.
