We combine both with visits to the famous palaces and forts of northern India. As we set off in the Rajasthan desert we appreciate why this is no ordinary tour of India. Our camel caravan takes us to remote villages and forts while at night our crew and musicians capture the desert atmosphere. After three days in the saddle we visit the walled cities of Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and the Pink City of Jaipur before commencing our cycle ride. If you haven't cycled since your school days don't worry. The roads are flat, the days are relaxed and we provide a backup vehicle for your convenience.
