"India - You'd be mad not to go!" - Joanna Lumley
Take a tranquil two-night cruise through the beauty of Kerala’s backwaters onboard a traditional houseboat before finding utter relaxation on the beaches of the Malabar Coast
Our Kerala Backwaters and Beach itinerary has been intricately designed for those who wish to see iconic sites and magnificent treasures. You'll travel with the assurance that all your arrangements are taken care of. You will be accompanied by our industry-leading guides whose unparalleled knowledge and talent will turn your tour into an unforgettable experience.
Fly overnight to the delightful city of Kochi.
On arrival you will be met by your guide and
transferred to your hotel.
Travel to Alleppey. Located between the
Arabian Sea and Lake Vembanad, this is
the gateway to Kerala’s epic backwaters
and home to more than a thousand boats.
You will explore onboard a traditional
kettuvalam (houseboat) – primarily used for
the transportation of goods, these boats are
an integral part of the Keralan experience.
Clamber aboard and begin wending your
way through this incredible maze of tropical
canals. Tonight you’ll dine on delicious local
flavours, prepared onboard. (B,D)
The backwaters are a unique area, a web of
interconnected lakes, lagoons, canals and
rivers, both natural and manmade, which
spreads almost half the length on the state.
Formed by the waves and currents of the
Arabian Sea creating islands across the mouth
of the many rivers that pass through the
region, creating a unique and breathtaking
ecosystem. Spend the day onboard your
houseboat, cruising though the undisturbed
lagoons and lakes, enjoy peace and quiet,
observing any wildlife and watching the
everyday lives of the people who live and
making their living on the water. This is rural
Kerala at its most divine. (B,L,D)
Disembark the houseboat and drive to Marari
Beach, located perfectly on the tropical
Malabar coast. (B)
Take the next two days for all out relaxation –
you can lie by the pool or recline on the soft
sand of the beach, from where you’ll be able to
see the local fisherman on traditional wooden
boats bobbing gently on the Arabian Sea. (B)
Depart for Kochi. On arrival, the rest of the
day is at leisure. (B)
Fly home to the UK arriving the same or
following day. (B)
