Start in Cochin and end in Varkala, the trip Cycle The Coast Of Kerala is a guided bicycle trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Varkala, Kochi and Alleppey in India. Cycle The Coast Of Kerala is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

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, we 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.

“I was not really sure what to expect from the trip having not experienced a trekking holiday before but this turned out to be a truly enjoyable trip. The group was sixteen people and a complete mix of backgrounds and ages which made for entertaining conversation over the week we had together. Unseasonal cold weather meant a last minute change to the planned itinerary which was unfortunate but entirely unavoidable and the weather prevented us scaling the second (optional) 4000m peak but the alternative local Hammam experience was a great substitute for our tired bodies.”

“Having dreamed of trekking to Everest Base Camp one day, the chance not only to do so but to sleep there for 2 nights was the main reason for selecting the Expedition Trek.  I was not disappointed and would recommend it to anyone.  The extra cost is more than worth it for the experience of a lifetime.”
