  • Introduction

    Enjoy a unique cross section view of India with these fascinating river journeys from Assam Bengal Navigation.

    Cruise on rivers and inland waterways in the comfort of small riverboats – comprising sundeck, dining room and around 12 air-conditioned cabins – for periods ranging from 4 to 15 days. Relax, as you pass serenely through great cities, alongside wildlife sanctuaries and historical monuments and into the culturally rich heart of rural India.

    Cruises on the River Brahmaputra in Assam, and on the River Hugli between Kolkata and the Ganges offer a number of visits and attractions. They afford unique opportunities to view wildlife (both by jeep and on elephant back); visit tea gardens, temples and monuments; explore villages on foot or in cycle rickshaws; browse craft workshops; attend colourful local dance performances; and enjoy barbecues on deserted river islands. Please inquire for full details, prices and dates.
