Welcome to Assam in the northeast of India for the latest bike and boat adventure of the Brahmaputra River.
The Brahmaputra, one of the world’s most storied rivers, flows through the northeasternmost area of India before turning south to the sea. Sourced in Tibet, the Indian stretch of river we cycle along takes us past national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, countless temples and typical riverside villages where the locals will be as enchanted by us as we are by them.
Join us as we launch this spectacular bike & barge journey along the Brahmaputra, featuring a mixture of tribal, mythological, cultural and nature-filled cycling adventures guaranteed to thrill you at every turn. Non-cycling guests will also enjoy the full experience with plenty of off-boat activities, such as guided walking tours, along with visits to all the cultural and historic sites on our route. Immerse yourself fully in Northeastern India with this epic journey by bike and boat along with land and river.
