Travel is something that inspires and refreshes people, whatever be the age. The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page said Augustine of Hippo, who was an early North African philosopher. None could have put it more beautifully. Many groups are proving that age is no bar when it comes to travel.
Several travel companies organize tours for senior citizens exclusively, while there are many like-minded people, who plan and travel and find their own adventure. The ultimate objective is to ensure that the monotony is replaced by some fresh outlook on life. If you are feeling inspired enough to travel, you can check out options like the upcoming customized tours from Samarth Senior Tours.

Known for its colourful life, festivals, palaces, deserts and a rich cultural heritage, Rajasthan beckons people of all ages. The most important places to see in Rajasthan are Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, and Jaisalmer. The palaces, the forts, the architecture, the desert camps, the dunes, the city and its temples, museums and local markets and the unique cuisine should be more than enough to bring vigor back into people’s minds. It is indeed a once in a lifetime experience.
God’s Own Country – Kerala
Think greenery, and it is Kerala that comes to mind. Endowed with scenic, serene backwaters with boathouses, misty mountains, beautiful beaches and excellent cuisine, especially for those who love seafood, Kerala happens to be an ideal place for seniors to just chill out.
Pearl of the Orient – Goa
If you thought that Goa was only meant for the young revellers, then think again. Goa offers impressive experiences for older people as well. The pristine beaches, the fantastic Portuguese architecture as seen in its many buildings and churches, many beautiful temples and lip-smacking coastal cuisine makes Goa a simply must-see destination for seniors. Go put your feet up!
The Golden Temple – Amritsar
The Golden Temple at Amritsar is indeed a beautiful experience that seniors should visit at least once. This temple is a true spiritual destination for people of all religions, and a real sight to watch after dark as it is lit up. The best part of this trip would be the exposure to the benevolent Sikh culture and the regular food that they serve in the langar at all times. You could even just club it with a visit to the Wagah border and revel in the patriotic spirit.
Scotland of India – Coorg
Lovely coffee plantations, beautiful climate, a reasonable amount of history and art along with eye-pleasing greenery can work wonders for the mood and health of senior citizens. Coorg, situated in Karnataka offers homestay options also so that people can avail healthy homemade food and enjoy the local cuisine. The place also has few temples, especially the Tala Kaveri temple which is at the origin of the river Kaveri. Don’t miss the elephant camp along the way. Enjoy scenic beauty at its best with misty mountain peaks.
I enjoy traveling by train but unfortunately our trains are not designed for senior citizens. The steps at the main door to the coach are very narrow and the gap between steps is very big making boarding the train impossible for seniors.
I agree… travelling hi trains is nothing but a nightmare for people who have knee problems or are wheel chair bound.
