What To Expect
Take in the sights and sounds of rural India on a bike! Start the tour in Fort Kochi, a port town filled with fascinating sights such as the Santa Cruz Basilica and Vasco da Gama Church.
Your local guide will make stops along the way to give you the lowdown on Kochi (more commonly known as "Cochin") and learn what makes it tick. We'll also pay a visit to the fishermen who use traditional nets for their craft, and take a break at the local beaches.
On our way towards Ezhupunna backwaters, we'll stop by sea shore fish auction centers and prawn peeling centers. These places are the backbone of the fishing industry in Kochi, making them the perfect place for you to get a real feel for the people who live and work here. We'll get back on track and if we have enough time, stop for a drink at a local toddy bar.
Upon reaching the backwaters, we'll take a break and have a traditional fisherman's lunch with a local family. The lunch will consist of fresh fried fish and tasty curry dishes. During this time in the villages, you'll have the unique chance to interact with locals and experience Kerala Village life.
Afterwards, we'll take a break from pedaling and hop on a canoe or shikara boat ride through the narrow canals. This relaxing part of the tour will get you right up close to the beautiful waters, the veins that run through this part of India, making it so naturally stunning.
Next, hop back on our bikes and return to Kochi, stopping along the way to check out some prawn culturing farms and Kumbalanghi model tourism village. We'll also have plenty of opportunity to stop and take pictures of the gorgeous scenery.
