A once-in-a-lifetime Guiding adventure

If you’re looking for the Guiding activity holiday of a lifetime, then look no further than India and a stay at the WAGGGS World Centre, Sangam – where international Guiding members come together to learn, explore, and give back to the local community.

Sangam offers a safe and welcoming start to your time in India, where you’ll take part in an international programme of activities and local community projects. Stroll round the beautiful grounds, take a dip in the pool, and enjoy the simple, yet tasty food, with members from all around the world – a true international adventure!

After spending some time at Sangam, head out to explore some of India’s most famous cities and sights, with or without your own personal tour guide. We’ll help you build a fantastic itinerary from visiting the magnificent Taj Mahal at sunrise and riding a rickshaw through Delhi to embarking on the Golden Triangle tour.

All our tours to India can be tailored to suit your youth group. Travel with a guide or without? Use private transfers or public transport? Do all three cities of the Golden Triangle or just a couple? We’ll help you build your itinerary for an activity holiday to India and Sangam, your way!

A warm welcome to Sangam!

Sangam translates into English as “coming together” and there is never a truer word spoken about a stay at this WAGGGS World Centre, which welcomes Guiding members from all around the world to take part in its international programmes each year. The safe and welcoming oasis of Sangam is a great way to start your time in India, allowing your girls to ease into a very different way of life. The food is simple, yet tasty and the site benefits from a water filtration system allowing you to drink the tap water. Enjoy a swim in the pool, take part in the many activities the team have planned for you as well as heading out into the local area to learn more about the culture and traditions, and get involved in some charity work.

A little bit of luxury!

When not at Sangam, we find it best to accommodate groups in hotels that we work with time-and-time again, rather than hostel-style accommodation. We tend to opt for well-known hotel chains such as the Sheraton – after all, it’s nice to have a little bit of luxury along the way!

Activities and Excursions

We recommend starting your trip with a stay at Sangam where you’ll enjoy plenty of arts, crafts and international activities, as well as plenty of time in the local community, meeting locals and taking part in some charity work projects. From there, you can head off for a week of exploration, seeing some of India’s most famous sights.

This is now the third time I have used Venture Abroad, we visited Kandersteg in 2016 and Iceland in 2023. Venture Abroad are great to deal with, nothing is too much trouble and her expert help and advice is much valued. I would never consider an international trip without Venture Abroad.
