Goa International Airport is well connected internationally and is served by the major airlines.
Note, if you are flying from the UK, it is possible to fly direct to Goa from Gatwick, check thomascookairlines.com – London > Goa on Wednesdays, Thursdays & Sundays. Return flights Goa to London on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Check all airlines directly for information. I would recommend booking directly with the airlines. If you are traveling within India there are a number of low cost airlines with competitive prices.
Visa formalities have been greatly simplified, citizens of most countries can apply online for an eVisa. The maximum length of stay is 90 days (180 days for UK citizens). See here for more information. The official Indian Government website to apply for your eVisa is here.
Transfer from the airport to Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre is included in the retreat costs. There will be a driver waiting for you outside arrivals with water and a welcome pack.
After you arrive, it is approximately a 1.5 hour drive from the airport to Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre.
