Inspiring holidays from a unique social perspective

Village Ways works in partnership with villages to establish, develop and manage a unique kind of ethical, responsible tourism in India and Nepal.

 We work in remote places where too often people have to leave their homes and villages and head into the cities to find work and so villages become abandoned. Working in partnership with the villagers, we encourage low-key tourism that runs alongside, but does not displace, traditional livelihoods.

Above all, the aim is to provide great holidays that inspire and delight our guests, giving you a true insight into village life in our beautiful partner villages. Sustainability is vital, with ownership in the hands of villagers and where both guests and hosts are the beneficiaries.

A specialist team, based in India

We are very proud of our sales office in India, where a small, dedicated team looks after guest reservations, and is experienced in putting together detailed travel itineraries. Members of the team make frequent trips to our communities, both in India and beyond. They speak good English, and our guests really enjoy discussing their trips with them. Gauri, Madhu, Sandhya and Pooja look forward to hearing from you!
