The closest and most convenient airport for you is to fly to New-Delhi. If you are visiting India for the first time then it is better for you to take a flight to Dehradun (city nearby), and from Dehradun is a 30 min drive by car, so you save a hustle.
Dehradun Airport: Jolly Grant Airport, Dehradun
Delhi airport to Rishikesh by car is a 6-7 hours journey. We have a transportation package for USD150 that covers your airport pick-up from Delhi to Rishikesh (by car) and a drop back to the Delhi Airport after completion of the course. One way transportation i.e. Delhi airport to Rishikesh can also be availed for USD 70. In case, your flight arrives late night and you want to stay overnight in Delhi, you may find a lot of hotels near the airport to stay the night. Pick up can be arranged for the next morning. Our travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and we are always ready with a back-up plan, in case of emergencies. Another good option is to travel by train (airport to New Delhi train station by car or Metro, then by train to Haridwar and from Haridwar to Rishikesh by car). Travel by bus is quite cheap but a bit inconvenient for first time visitors.
Another convenient mode of transport would be to book yourself a domestic flight to Dehradun – Jolly Grant Airport. Dehradun is just a 30-45 minute drive away from the centre and that will certainly save you a lot of time and energy. An airport pick-up from Dehradun can be arranged at USD 20 only. A drop back to Dehradun Airport is also priced at USD 20.
