Older holidaymakers 'are looking to get off the beaten track'

While it is great to explore some of the world's most famous sites such as the Taj Mahal, a growing number of travellers are looking for adventure holidays that take them to more secluded places.

According to Sarah Woods - a freelance travel author and travel presenter on ITV1's Alan Titchmarsh Show - a growing number of Britons over the age of 50 are taking trips that allow them to explore new pastures.

Indeed, she suggested that rural India is proving to be particularly popular and a greater range of luxurious holiday packages are now being made available.

India holidays can be extremely diverse, as the hustle and bustle of densely populated cities such as Delhi is offset by the tranquillity of the quieter northern territories, where visitors can see a vast array of wildlife.

"More 50-plus travellers than ever before are taking extended breaks now, such as 'gap years' and backpacking trips to destinations that are off the beaten track," Ms Woods remarked.
