CWT Vacations partners with Beekman 1802 to host “Trip of a Lifetime” to India 10-day cultural immersion takes travelers through the Golden Triangle

September 07, 2016

Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) Vacations today announced its partnership with Beekman 1802 – a lifestyle brand inspired by the Beekman 1802 Farm in Sharon Springs, N.Y. – to host a 10-day “Trip of a Lifetime” to India’s Golden Triangle in March 2017. The trip is available to travelers from North America and promises an enriching, hands-on experience emphasizing tradition and local customs.

“Travel allows people to understand the world in a new way,” said Christine Ufniak, director of marketing for CWT Vacations. “We worked closely with Beekman 1802 to craft an eye-opening, inspiring cultural immersion experience. This itinerary is a balance of adventure, relaxation and education, with opportunities to give back to the local community. If visiting India is on your bucket list, this is an excellent way to do it.”

The trip itinerary reflects the Beekman 1802 brand – which emphasizes living better lives, season by season, neighbor by neighbor – throughout all 10 days of the trip. An intimate group of travelers will journey through the Golden Triangle, visiting the bustling capital of Delhi; Agra, home to the incomparable Taj Mahal; and Jaipur, the land of kings.

“The Beekman 1802 brand grew from the desire to build community,” said Brent Ridge, co-founder of Beekman 1802. “We’ve always said that while our farm is a place on a map, our neighbors are people from all around the world. Partnering with CWT to offer this trip allows us to share this vision and demonstrate – through international travel – just how widespread and welcoming that community can be.”

Planned activities include historical tours in each city that embed travelers into the unique culture of each destination, participating in traditional farming techniques of the regions, preparing and serving meals to children in Delhi, celebrating the festival of colors, and much more.

Beekman 1802 is one of the fastest growing lifestyle brands in the U.S., founded by Josh Kilmer-Purcell and his partner Brent Ridge. They purchased the historic Beekman 1802 Farm in 2007 that continues to inspire the brand and their thousands of fans across the country.
