India - Kerala
Kerala & Tamil Nadu
Kerala in India, is home to one of the world's oldest civilisations and commonly known as 'God's own country'. A beautiful, memorable destination for a redspokes bicycle holiday, with rich and varied cultures, Kerala is included in the National Geographic Traveller as one of the world's 50 must-see destinations. Kerala has long held a fascination for travellers, what better way to explore this wonderful region than a mountain bike tour?
The terrain here is geographically diverse, with the Arabian Sea to the west and the mountains of the Western Ghats to the east, offering a great variety of cycling. On the redspokes Kerala bicycle holiday you will visit stunning beaches on the Malabar coast, lush green hill stations shrouded in mist, sloping tea plantations, blue lagoons and tropical rainforests, before finally exploring the fascinating and beautiful inland waterways. The serene ambience of the Alleppey backwaters is one of the unique attractions of Kerala.
Our tour includes the unforgettable experience of a night on board a luxury houseboat or 'Kettuvalom'. The following morning we enjoy a leisurely cruise through the tranquil small lakes and amazing surroundings
Another highlight of our India cycling trip is the food. Distinctive Keralan cuisine is flavoured with diverse natural herbs and spices, great for vegetarians and far less fiery than the style of curry to be found further to the north of India.
The redspokes India cycling tour through Kerala and Tamil Nadu is rich in experiences and will give you a great insight into this fantastic region and its culture, all from the unique vantage point of a bicycle.
