India, Sri Lanka & the Maldives

An Epic Adventure Unveiling the Natural & Cultural Treasures of Three South Asian Nations
South Asia hold a peerless place on any world traveler’s agenda. With a history that stretches back millennia, India and Sri Lanka are a sensory meld of cultures, colors, sounds and aromas. Their temples and palaces are legendary, and their cities among the most fascinating on the planet. Ancient traditions weave within the pulse of contemporary life to create a layered montage of human experience unlike any place else on earth. And, in vivid contrast, to the south of the Subcontinent lie the fabled Maldives, a scattering of low-lying islands with pristine white sand beaches, graced with swaying palms—an idyllic finale to our diverse odyssey along the western edge of South Asia. From Goa's Portuguese heritage to the plantation tapestry of Mangalore, from the languid canals of Cochin to the Buddhist treasures of Kandy, and beyond to the tropical nirvana of the Maldives, this adventure cruise is a full immersion in a most extraordinary part of the world.

Trip Highlights

  • From ancient cities replete with World Heritage Sites to idyllic beaches and rural village life, discover South Asia’s most beguiling destinations on this grand voyage through the eastern Arabian Sea
  • Explore the bucolic Kerala backwaters by local boat to observe rituals of daily life, and enjoy a cultural performance of classical Kathakali dance.
  • Snorkel among brilliant corals and prolific marine life in the northern isles of the Maldives, and meet residents of traditional fishing villages on less-visited islands
