Jolly Grant Airport
Please book your flight to arrive at Dehradun Airport (DED). Transfer from the airport is included. Vinyasa Yoga Academy will pick you up from the airport.
However, 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 (nearby city) and from there, Dehradun is a 30-minute drive by car, so you save a hustle.
Delhi Airport to Rishikesh by car is a six-hour journey. They have a transportation package for 150 USD which will cover your airport pick-up, transfer from Delhi to Rishikesh (by car), and after completion of the course transfer back from Rishikesh to Delhi. One way transportation from the Delhi Airport to Rishikesh can also be availed for 85 USD. In the case that your flight arrives late night and you want to stay overnight in Delhi, airport pick-up cost will be 25 USD and a reasonably good accommodation at a hotel in Delhi can be arranged for 40 or 50 USD.
Cheap hotels can also be found in Delhi (Main Bazar or Paharganj area) for 10 to 20 USD. From the Delhi Airport, Paharganj can be reached by airport metro express in less than 20 minutes and it costs less than 2 USD.
The travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and they 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, 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.
