Riding Regal Rajasthan
The sightseeing is almost as compelling as the rides on this tour of the largest province in India. The comfortable accommodations include some far more exotic than the usual tour hotel: a night in a palace in Ras and a restored Rawla, the home of a long-ago chieftain. Stunning views, visits to temples and palaces, and pleasant daily rides add up to an entirely enjoyable and enlighhtening visit to Rajasthan.

Rajasthan is a beguiling land of hilltop forts, lavish palaces and colorful cities that hark back to a time when royal families ruled over western India’s princely states. From the “Pink City” of Jaipur to the “City of Lakes”, Uddaipur, this cycling tour traverses Rajasthan's arid yet culturally vibrant rural hinterland as you hop from one resplendent heritage site to the next. Throughout the journey, you'll stay in some beautiful heritage hotels occupying the refurbished buildings of centuries’ old palaces, residences and forts.
Meeting in the state capital of Jaipur, embark on a fantastic route through the vast countryside that sprawls along the fringes of the Thar desert. You'll share the roads with camel-carts and herds of cattle as you wind through countless villages and stop to visit steadfast Rajput and Mughal forts as well as intricate Hindu and Jain temples. Once you reach Jodhpur, the “Blue City”, give the bike a rest to marvel at the sight of its azure-hued skyline from the top of the colossal Mehrangarh Fort. You'll then head for the hills, climbing into the Aravalli range where you’ll spend two days surrounded by nature and exploring Kumbhalgarh Fort, with its labyrinth walls that meander along the mountain ridges. The cycling concludes with a descent towards Udaipur where you’ll crown the adventure with an exploration of scenic city lakes and ornate palaces. The tour ends on a lovely note in Udaipur.
Rajasthan has attracted travellers for centuries, but by bike you will not only get to see the vestiges of its regal past but also experience local life up close. Join us in immersing ourselves in this rich culture!
