Award winning, responsible travel. Walking from village to village in the Himalayas, exploring the jungles of central India or relaxing in the warm south, you are always the special guest of the village in a Village Ways holiday.
Holidays that delight guests & benefit hosts
Travelling with Village Ways brings you into welcoming villages in unspoiled regions of India to experience the rhythms of life in very special places. Local guides help you connect and interact with your hosts, and you stay in our unique, village-owned guesthouses.

As we all look to travel in a more sustainable way, Village Ways, a social enterprise, works in partnership with our host villages. They benefit directly from your stay and love to welcome guests. With just small numbers of guests at any time, their traditional, agricultural and economic life continues alongside this low-footprint form of tourism. With Village Ways, your holiday is truly a force for positive change.
