There are many weekend holiday packages that take you away from Mumbai, allowing you to unwind over the weekend and just enjoy a short break. From popular tourist spots to off-beat destinations, there are numerous places close to Mumbai that are perfect for a weekend trip.

To select a weekend travel package, you need to find out which one is best suited for you. Let’s explore some weekend getaway options from Mumbai!

Adventure: If you are an adventure seeker, you could head up to Kamshet, which is a beautiful hill resort surrounded by lush green hills and a lake. It is one of the best places in India for paragliding. Karjat, a village located in the foothills of Matheran, is preferred by tourists for trekking. Also, the Malshej Ghat is the only hill station where you can witness all the seasons of the year in a single day.

Beach: If you are a sun-and-sea-fan, you may want to unwind amidst lush trees and palm-fringed beaches. Destinations like Alibaug, Ganpatipule, Goa and Murud-Janjira are great beach locations and offer a great respite from the hectic pace of Mumbai. There cannot be any better way to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul than by soaking in the sun and enjoying time drift by.

Heritage: Designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Ajanta and Ellora caves are a good option if you find history exciting. Select a weekend tour that lets you admire the beauty of ancient sculptures, paintings, murals and carvings in these caves. The intricate detailing will definitely stun you with its complexity and beauty.

Hill Station: If you are looking for a peaceful way to spend your weekend trip, you can head towards one of the many hill stations on the Western Ghats which are comfortably close to Mumbai. The quaint hill station of Amboli has plenty of privacy, perfect for a romantic escape with your spouse. Also, the back-to-nature environment of Bhandardara, the timeless appeal of Khandala, the green pastures of Lonavala and the purity of Matheran, all offer a pleasant and refreshing change from city life.

Many tour operators provide holiday packages that are a combination of a few or all of the above types of holiday. Ask them for details on the weekend tour packages offered from Mumbai and prepare for a fun-filled weekend holiday destination with your friends and loved ones.
