“Can you organise something completely different after the Art Safari, Heidi?”

by Mary-Anne Bartlett on March 23, 2018

One of our India sketching guests asked Heidi to help her find a cycling extension for her February Art Safari with artist Maxine Relton.  After a comprehensive search nothing fitted the dates.  Not defeated Heidi organised a tailor-made cycling itinerary in Kerala, rustled up two more cyclists and flew to India to join her! 


Everyone had a wonderful time pedalling up (puff, puff) and free-wheeling down (weeeee) the Western Ghats, through tea plantations, alongside rivers, lakes, darting kingfishers and tooting tuk, tuks, staying in glorious off-the-beaten-track locations, surrounded by cardamom forests and spice gardens.


We could term this as ‘Marigold-paced cycling’ – with plenty of stops, questions, discussions and laughter.  The Indian cycle guides and back-up crew were absolutely fantastic, and made the whole experience even more fun and memorable.  


We are already planning Maxine’s sketching tour to Tamil Nadu and Kerala in South India for February 2019, Maxine is also leading a sketching tour to North India in October (booking now!).

We like arranging extra days and tour extensions for guests before or after their Art Safari, call us for suggestions on 01394 382235 (how about horse riding in Mongolia, rafting in Costa Rica anyone?????).
