Kerala is a young state on India's southern tropical Malabar Coast known for its greenery, wildlife reserves, tea and spice plantations, palm-lined beaches and exotic cuisine. It's a world away from the hustle and bustle of elsewhere. Famed for its backwaters and home to a network of hydro-highways popular for sightseeing cruises, it's hard to deny Kerala's liberal use of the slogan 'God's Own Country', when travelling through the peaceful region.

  • How long is the tour?

    The tour is 4 days long with 4 days of cycling too.

  • How many riders will be in the group?

    It's difficult to confirm the exact number of riders in the group. However the group size can range from 2 - 16 riders.

  • Is there a minimum age for this tour?

    Yes, riders must be at least 18 years old by the time the tour starts.

  • What's the tour like?

    The ride is approximately 209 km (130mi) in three and a half days of cycling. This tour is on dirt and paved roads with some climbing, but distances are not too strenuous. The route has been designed to take in the best of Kerala’s culture, countryside and wildlife, all while enjoying an active holiday. You will be riding above sea level but this ascent happens over several days allowing time for your body to adjust. The pace is easy, though there are some steep climbs and exhilarating descents, including one that’s 22 km (14mi) long. The trip is fully supported and your guide’s expert knowledge of the area and terrain means that you always know what is coming up in terms of distance and difficulty. This makes a tremendous difference, as does the constant supply of bottled water and fresh local fruits.


    Biking Conditions: This trip is on dirt and tarmac roads and there is no technical riding involved on this tour. An air-conditioned support bus travels with the group to support and participants can cycle as much or as little as they like and still enjoy the same views.

  • Are helmets required?

    Wearing a helmet is required on all biking adventures and is non negotiable. If you do not wear a helmet you will not be allowed to cycle. Your tour leader is trained in first aid and emergency rescue, but to a large degree you must be responsible for your own safety while riding. It is therefore compulsory that you take out travel insurance that will cover you for a mountain biking tour.

  • Where does the tour start and finish?

    The tour starts with an 8:00AM pick up from your central Fort Cochin hotel. It will finish with a farewell lunch on the last day at Fort Cochin as well.

    Fort Cochin can be reached through flights at Cochin International Airport (COK)

  • Are helmets included when hiring a bike?

    Yes, if you're hiring a bike from the operator, a complimentary helmet is provided, although you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.

We had a wonderful time on our tour of Kerala. The itinerary was perfect and the routes were just right. I wanted to take the time to email about our guide, Abhilash and our driver, Jibin. Both gentlemen went out of there way to make us feel completely comfortable and happy. They were super and I can not give them enough praise.

An insiht into the country
