Detailed Itinerary:

What’s up? Your clothes look too clean for Holi, mah friend. Just kidding.

As soon as we reach Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj station by 7:15 am, we socialize and say hello to the most fun-loving, enthusiastic people who are joining us for Holi. *Pro-tip- During the meet and greet session, you might as well plan and decide which face out of the lot would you really like to ruin with colors, lol! *

Once we warm up, we board the Khopoli Fast Local train to reach Vangani by 9 am. The Holi mood will start to set in ever since we board the train. Throughout the journey, we engage in fun, frolic, jokes, snacks and back to back besura songs. And within that one and a half hours, you realize that every one of us belongs to the same tribe and has the same spirit animals. Isn’t that awesome?

Now that we’ve reached the Vangani station, let’s drag our free-spirited souls to a place that is sure to make you feel so close to nature. We head towards HikerWolf’s Backwoods Rio villa. For those who have been waiting for this, we can bet, you wouldn’t have had a better Holi than celebrating it amidst the vibrant colors of nature.

As soon as you reach, you realize that you are in for a real treat. Imagine spending an entire day far away from the hustle and bustle of the town, right next to a beautiful flowing river and multitudes of birds chirping to welcome the spring season. You should totally try and soak in your surroundings as soon as you reach. Take a walk through the evergreen backyard, immerse into the vibes by relaxing underneath an enchanting Gazebo amidst countless trees that’s sure to take your breath away.

By now, you must be lost in the scene. So why not have a delicious breakfast? Our breakfast session is not just having eating. It’s about engaging in small talks, in-depth talks and getting to know each other while we eat. After all, each one of us has arrived from different walks of life. And nothing better than to explore each other’s story over a sumptuous meal and loads and loads of thandai.

Now, the time is finally here! It’s time to play with colors. All our colors are eco-friendly and do not cause harm to nature. So here, fellow Spartans, welcome to your battle-field. At the count of 1, 2 and 3… ATTACK!

Songs. Laughter Unlimited Dhinchaks. And some never-experienced-before madness. We experience it all. We giggle with joy. We dance underneath sprinkles of colors. We play hide and seek while splashing colors on each other. In short, we make the most out of the moment.

And with a swimming pool in our villa, why not jump into the water together and lose ourselves to heaps of joys? 

After the most happening session of the year, does your tummy growl, my dear?

We are aware of that. So may you please, my honor, head to the lawn? Because the yummiest lunch is waiting for you! But before that, all of us ‘ghost-looking creatures’ must take a group selfie. So here, Say cheeeeeese ^_^

Some fun awaits you even after lunch! Because we have some of the craziest games and activities lined up for you crazy peeps. Dance, crazy beats, story sessions, games, etc. Won’t spill the beans much. Let that be a surprise, my friend?

We’re sure you are going to have a difficult time controlling your smile while we head back to the station. After all, you’ve splashed uncountable joys and soaked yourself in so much fun throughout the day. And we’re glad we could be a part of it. But as they say, good things come in small pockets. So we might have to wait for another year to celebrate Holi again.

But trust us, we bring you colors in all seasons of the year. You can absolutely be a part of any of our trips lined up throughout the year! And we promise, the friendships that have started today, are sure to continue for the rest of your lives. Until then, adios. And see you VERY soon.

  • review rating 5  There was a very good word of mouth about trips organized by Hikerwolf which I was coming across since quite some time and finally planned to join the trip to Hampi Island in Jan 2020. I must say it marks a very good start to the year.. Organizers (I will call them friends now) , ensured each and every moment on the trip was worth remembering with their sincere efforts. Everything from the travel, stays, meals, local sightseeing, fun..was arranged so perfectly that there is no room for disappointment. Kudos to both Rameez and Shubham for making this happen. Both of them ensured what Hikerwolf offered was smoothly accomplished. They were so professional and aware about the places, things to do that by no chance I had to Google for any trip suggestions after reaching Hampi. I would like to specially mention Rameez as a person. He turned out to be a very good friend rather than just being a trip planner. Hearing and acting with full sincerity to everyone's ask is not an easy task and that with too with a bunch of unknown people. Hats off to him for pulling it off effortlessly. See you soon Hikerwolf...I am part of the pack now😉
