Overview

Rajasthan, also known as the Land of Kings, is the largest state in India in terms of area. It is located in the west of the country and most of it consists of the great Thar Desert.

During this diverse two weeks tour, we get to know all aspects of Rajasthan (the desrt Thar, beautiful historical towns, the oldest mountain range of India- the Aravallis) We get an unadulterated insight into the traditions and religions of the Hindus, Muslims and Jains, all the while traveling by bike! Mostly you can walk on quiet roads through the hilly desert landscape. Furthermore, we have the pleasure to take a sightseeing bike tour in Jaipur.

A very special highlight will be the Jeep Safari through the rocky area at the Jawai Dam – the perfect landscape for free-living leopards!

Also the visit of old castles, magnificent temples and colorful markets may not be missing, of course. We also take part in an entertaining cooking class.

The trip is completed by visiting the taj Mahal.

The special thing about this tour is that we not only cycle actively along the small roads of Rajasthan, but also visit the most beautiful places.

Afterwards, a beach stay in Goa for a few days is possible.

Travel Info

More information

In Rajasthan, the desert state, it is hot and dry almost all year round. Only the winter months from November to February are a little more pleasant. In any case, take a headgear with you to protect yourself from the strong sunlight.

Rajasthan attracts the most tourists, so tourism provides a livelihood for many locals. Sometimes this can get uncomfortable. Especially in the big cities and tourist strongholds, people are under a lot of pressure to buy something. Often beggars or children come to ask for money, sweets or pens. Here, it should be well thought out who to give something to.

Our accommodations are good hotels, resorts and camps in the 3+ star area. The luxurious tents in the camp have all the amenities of a hotel room.

You will be provided with rental bicycles with suspension and of suitable size.
