Jaguar Land Rover India has introduced specially curated and unique travel experiences, Defender Journeys, in India. This is a self-drive, multi-day, adventure program, in Defender vehicles, that will include many aspirational and sought-after itineraries across India. Each Defender Journey will include luxury stays and hospitality, lifestyle experiences, cultural immersion and drive across some of the most iconic routes in India with off-road trails, that offer a complete Defender driving experience. There will be 5 Defenders deployed in each Journey, thus offering just 5 drive slots, to provide a highly exclusive and personalised experience.
The first Defender Journey known as Konkan Experience is scheduled from 16th January 2023.
Rohit Suri, President and Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India, said: “The Defender clients are active and adventurous. Defender, with its iconic driving capabilities and design, offers the perfect opportunity to engage our discerning clients with a program to explore the cultural diversity of our beautiful country; be it the stunning coastal regions, whitewashed peaks of the Himalayas or the ephemeral dunes of the Thar. Each journey is bound to be a trip of a lifetime.”
To begin with, four Defender Journeys have been curated, as follows:
A journey between Goa and Bengaluru over seven days, to explore the towns along the Konkan coast, the hills of the Western Ghats and everything in between. The Konkan Experience is an adventure filled with surprises, whether it is exploring the beaches that dot the coast or sipping artisanal coffee in the cool mountain air. It includes luxurious accommodations that offer rich culinary experiences and exciting activities.
A journey between Bengaluru and Coimbatore, surrounded by lush nature, through the Western Ghats, and the famous tea plantations of the Nilgiris. Over seven days, The Nilgiri Experience includes travel through majestic forests, exploring a tiger reserve, stay in luxurious locations, and unwinding with a gorgeous sunset cruise.
A journey between Coimbatore and Chennai across the Eastern Ghats and the extraordinary coast that straddles the Bay of Bengal. The Coromandel Experience is a culturally rich journey providing complete immersion into the region’s colourful heritage and tradition.
A journey between Coimbatore and Kochi to explore the region filled with unique geography, tranquil backwaters, unspoiled beaches, rich culture and spices. The Malabar Experience is a pursuit that will amaze you every step of the way and more.
More such journeys will be curated and introduced throughout 2023.
Jaguar Land Rover India has authorised Cougar Motorsport to plan and execute Defender Journeys in India. A team of trained Land Rover instructors will lead and guide every journey to make the overall experience seamless and convenient for participating clients.
