Forget four-wheel drives – real adventure lies in harnessing the power of your own two legs. Feel the breeze in your hair as you zip through the rural Indian countryside, exploring winding backroads and beautiful beaches on the Kerala Cycling Tour.
A visit to the state of Kerala is a chance to discover a wonderful range of diverse and ever-changing scenery, including rolling tea and spice plantations, incredible wildlife reserves, and the UNESCO-listed Western Ghat mountain range. Travelling by bicycle allows you to get even closer to the true heart of the state, as you meet local villagers, soak up the culture in typical fishing villages, and admire the very best of this lush green corner of India.
Over the course of your two-week tour, you’ll explore pristine beaches, barter at bustling markets, and visit Kerala’s world-renowned backwaters. Here, miles of peaceful labyrinthine waterways are fringed with palm trees – travelling by foot, bicycle, and wooden canoe lets you discover this truly charming area intimately.
A visit to Periyar National Park comes next, providing a just reward for some challenging hill cycling! Keep your eyes peeled for roaming wild elephants, tigers and leopards, as well as other rare species. The park is not only intensely biodiverse, but is also a dedicated elephant and tiger reserve, making it the perfect place for wildlife fans.
Your adventure ends in the port town of Kochi – admire the glistening Arabian Sea, and explore the quaint harbour and its lively bazaars. After two weeks of cycling, now’s the time to rest your tired legs with a refreshing dip in the sea…
