Warm Up with a River Cruise on the Ganges with AdventureWomen
BOZEMAN, Mont. — Women travelers look to escape North America’s polar vortex and warm up in an exotic location can look to AdventureWomen for the experience of a lifetime. The longest running adventure travel company for active women over 30, AdventureWomen has crafted this new, custom-made women’s adventure vacation exploring a side of India that most westerners do not get to see. Travelers cruise the Ganges River aboard the Bengal Ganga, built in the style of the historic Clyde steamers and the first river boat to ply the Ganges-Hooghly Waterway between Kolkata and Varanasi, India in more than 100 years.
No river on earth plays a more important cultural, economic or social role in the lives of more people than the Ganges River in India. The spiritual heart of the Hindu religion, the banks of the Ganges are strewn with India’s fascinating cities, culturally-important pilgrimage sites, charming villages, mountains and magical forests. Travelers will explore Mother Theresa’s legacy in Calcutta (Kolkata), learn about India’s religious traditions in Varanasi and marvel at the “Bodhi Tree,” where Guatama first attained enlightenment to become Buddha. After their days of adventure, women can relax in their accommodations on the luxury steamship with full board and world-renowned Indian hospitality.
