Far Horizon

Far Horizon

Since 1992, Far Horizon have been giving travellers the chance to see the wonders of India. Their authentic style of tours has earned them a National Tourism Award from the Indian government and their range of independently crafted itineraries has been met with great acclaim by river cruisers from all over the world.

The journey started with two people’s love of travel and eagerness to show others how fantastic India is. They worked under the guidance of three main concepts: creativity, quality and value to create tours that would allow explorers to immerse themselves in the vibrant culture of India and get to know the wonderful people who live here. The trips include chances to visit remote communities, dine on traditional cuisine in the home of a local family, and go in search of some of the fascinating wildlife the country has to offer.

One of the great successes of Far Horizon has been the Brahmaputra river cruises that include pre-cruise tours in a range of different cities. There is the opportunity to explore places such as Mumbai, Kolkata and Jaipur before climbing aboard the MV Mahabaahu and sailing through the Assam region in comfort. Some itineraries even feature trips to Bhutan and Sri Lanka before your cruise starts.

The ship itself is a beautifully appointed vessel, built perfectly for the Brahmaputra River. With a capacity of just 46 guests, there is plenty of room on board to find a spot and watch the scenery float by. There is a small gym, a swimming pool, the comfortable Soma Lounge and a spa to help you truly relax. Delicious local cuisine is served in the Mungri Mungram restaurant and cabins feature satellite TV, comfortable beds with quality linens, a safe, a shower, air-conditioning and plenty of storage space. Balcony options are available.

Accommodation

With capacity for just 46 guests, the cabins aboard MV Mahabaahu are spacious. There are two sumptuous suites located at the front of the ship and the rest of the cabins are made up of nine balcony options and 12 that don’t have an outside space. All of the accommodation offers the same facilities, which include air-conditioning, satellite TV, a personal safe, a minibar and a private bathroom. Facilities will be slightly more basic when sailing aboard the houseboats on the Kerala backwaters.

Dining

Anyone who enjoys Indian food will love their time sailing with Far Horizon as the meal options are passionately prepared using local ingredients. You will taste your way through the different regions of the country, with a few international dishes offered alongside. Breakfast and lunch take the form of a freshly prepared buffet, whilst the evening meal is waiter-served from an a la carte menu.

Facilities

The public spaces on board are very comfortable and designed to help you relax during your river cruise. As well as the restaurant that doubles as a lecture theatre, there is a welcoming lounge, a swimming pool, spa facilities and a covered sun deck. For some added peace and quiet, there is also a well-stocked library where you can find books and board games. Once again, the public facilities will be more limited on the houseboats in Kerala.

Excursions

The activities off the ship are aimed to give you an in-depth look at the culture of India through learning about its people, its wildlife and its attractions. With excursions in the major cities and enrichment opportunities in remote towns and villages, you get to see both sides of this intriguing country. Specific excursions during the river cruise include meeting local weavers and watching them carry out their craft, explore the Kaziranga National Park and visiting a tea plantation. These are accompanied by land tours that not only let you discover the major sights of India but can also take you to countries such as Bhutan and Sri Lanka.
