To celebrate International Women’s Day this year, Insight Vacations has launched a new women’s only journey for the first time ever – Inspirational India, A Wander Women Journey.
As the first journey in Insight’s new “Wander Women” journey program, it will take place in India in 2021 and offer “immersive learning opportunities, wellness experiences and authentic dining”.
“On International Women’s Day, we recognise the power of impactful tourism,” Global CEO for Insight Vacations Ulla Hefel Böhler said.
“With 57% of our guests being women along with the rise of women’s only travel, our new journey which is designed and run by women, makes it a perfect fit for those who want to get below the surface and experience India as a culturally immersive destination.”
The trip will provide opportunities to give back and empower women in the local communities while learning about their day-to-day lives.
This exclusive women’s only journey is only available on a limited departure date, so clients are encouraged to book early to secure their space.
The new 12-day women’s only journey in India starts in Delhi with a morning experience visiting Old Delhi and absorbing the vibrant culture.
Women will get a choice between a “glassperience” with where guests will make their own piece of jewellery with glass or an ayurvedic treatment with two massage therapists.
Guests will visit Sheroes, a one-of-a- kind café in India, solely run by acid attack survivors promoting social integration and economic empowerment.
Guests will then visit the Taj Mahal before embarking to Jaipur to enjoy Holi, the ancient festival of colours.
On the eve of the Holi festival, they’ll visit an Indian family to join their Holika Dehan tradition, for a home-hosted dinner and a bonfire that’s meant to ward off evil before the festivities begin.
For the festival, guests will dress in local Kurta attire and take to the streets for a colourful celebration.
The following day starts with morning yoga hosted by a female guru before heading on a Pink City rickshaw ride offered by Pink City Rickshaw Company.
This company provides new aspirational employment opportunities to 200 women from low income households in Jaipur.
Then choose between an evening Bollywood dance class or a henna demonstration.
Women will also visit the Sunder Rang arts and crafts project at Chandelao village, where an average of 20 women work at the centre, producing traditional Rajasthani textiles and handicraft items for local and export markets, creating a sustainable source of income for the artisans.
A meeting with a local astrologer reveals the secrets of the stars and after travelling to Udaipur, guests relax and rejuvenate at the Taj Aravali Resort & Spa.
Clients also visit the Seva Mandir Organization, an NGO supporting natural resource development, as well as health and women’s empowerment before embarking on an evening boat ride at Lake Pichola and visit Jagmandir.
