Tour Highlights:

  • A chance to stretch your legs as you cycle north along this beautiful coast.
  • Interact with the locals, being at ground level rather than in a car is a much more interactive experience.
  • Visit many of the historic sights usually missed whilst on the road.
  • Stop off at villages and small scale, hand crafted industries.
  • Enjoy this fully immersive way to travel around Kerala.
  • Visit the sights of the charming old fort area of Cochin.
  • End the trip with a well deserved, relaxing few days on the beach.

This is a great itinerary for those to want to explore but don’t like being cooped up in a car for too long. Stretch your legs as you explore the coastal roads, it is a great chance to meet the locals, stop off at whatever catches your eye and work off those additional calories that you are bound to imbibe with the delicious Keralan food on offer! Take local ferries, visit temples where they wordship snakes, try kayaking on the backwaters and end it all with a few well-deserved days relaxing on the beach.
