Assam Bengal Navigation (ABN) creates unique expeditions experienced in relative luxury on India’s greatest yet remote rivers.
At ABN, we approach your journey with us – from the experience on board and off, to the people you meet; from the décor of our ships, to the quality of service you receive – with consideration of the local community. Whether this means teaching an English class at the Baranagar English Tuition Centre (supported by the ABN Foundation), or simply interacting with our crew on board your ship who have all been handpicked from villages in and around the region, we create experiences that foster a genuine connection between guests and the places we take you to on the Indian Subcontinent's greatest river valleys.
Discover life on board an ABN small ship river cruise on the Ganges. From being served an array of never-before-tried regional cuisines to sipping G&Ts on the sundeck as you return the waves of laughing children on shore, experience a new way of travelling through rural India.
