Gentle cycling along the tropical Keralan coastline on an 8 day Indian biking adventure. Kerala is an excellent place to discover by bike; a true tropical paradise with an idyllic coastline, lush tranquil backwaters, colourful temples and old stone churches. It's not surprising that Kerala is often referred to as 'God's own country'. Offering a gentler experience than the often frenetic north, Kerala is great for a first-time bike trip or your first visit to India.

From the old spice port of Cochin to the laid-back beach town of Varkala, you will gently cycle through beautiful landscapes, fascinating towns and colourful fishing villages, sampling superb south Indian cuisine along the way. A night in a village homestay provides a unique insight into the warm Keralan hospitality, and the backwaters of Kerala are cruised on a traditional houseboat before relaxing on the sweeping beaches of Varkala.

This trip is classified 'Road' Activity Level: 2 (Leisurely/Moderate) The terrain and route are mostly surfaced roads (which can be rough in some places) including plenty of quiet backroads with low levels of traffic, but this does increase when approaching towns. The support vehicle is available at all times if required. The cycling consists of mostly half-day rides, allowing time to explore the sights and relax at your hotel.

This trip is designed so that you can experience the best parts of Kerala in a short period of time. Kerala shows the softer side of the sub-continent, offering a gentler experience than the often frenetic north. You will follow the coast rather than going inland in order to avoid the highlands of Kerala. This itinerary is therefore great for a first-time bike trip or your first visit to India, but there is also plenty of interest for those who have completed cycle trips with us previously in India and want to see a different part of the country.

*Please note that the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) are responsible for the conservation of many monuments in India and very occasionally this may mean that work is taking place at sites visited on this trip. The ASI's schedule is never published so it is not possible to forewarn our clients of when work will be taking place.
