Start and end in Kochi (formely known as Cochin), the Cycling Kerala's Backroads tour is a guided bicycle trip that takes 14 days. You will travel through Kochi, Periyar National Park and Periyar in India. Cycling Kerala's Backroads is a small group tour which includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

Kerala, a narrow Indian state sandwiched between the Arabian Sea and the mountainous Western Ghats, is known for its tropical greenery, backwaters, wildlife reserves, and tea and spice plantations. Along the way, you will be staying at beautiful heritage hotels, eco-lodges as well as a rice barge converted to a luxurious accommodation. We'll have our fill of ethnic and delicious food, seasoned by local spices. Then the climbing begins as we head up to areas known for its tea plantations and spice estates.

Four wildlife parks are visited on this tour, where we will most likely be able see a herd of elephants. We then head towards Kumarakom from where we spend a relaxing afternoon plying the backwaters on a houseboat, where we'll also spend the night. From here it is a flat ride back to Kochi with time to explore this fascinating historic town. Its location near the equator combined with the sea breezes and cooler temperatures in the highlands makes it perfect for bicycling and lives up to its tagline–God's Own Country.

This tour include a total ascent of 8,926 m and descent of 8,452 m.

“Cycling Kerala's Backroads was an amazing experience all around. Challenging cycling, delicious food, great guides, and countless interactions with locals. The warmth and fun of the people was the best. Solid mix of doable distances, with cultural experiences. Cooking at the Barbeque in Mannar was a wonderful experience.

Shibu and Hareesh were excellent guides for our ride. This was our third tour with SpiceRoads. All have been outstanding experiences. Safety, comfort, and communication have all been well managed. These two had great senses humor and were impressed with our ability to move across the terrain as efficiently as we did. We all had a renewing ride in Kerala. Charmed by the many people we met. Led by two great guides. Thanks to Shibu and Hareesh.
