Starting in Kochi and ending in Varkala, the tour Cycle The Coast Of Kerala is a guided bicycle tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Muhamma, Varkala and Kochi in India. Cycle The Coast Of Kerala is a small group tour 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.

“A wonderful holiday based in the beautiful, remote, rural village of Magura. The village is accessed via a long, winding unmade road so get used to a bumpy ride. If you get out of the van immediately after you leave the tarmac it will take approximately 45 - 50 minutes to walk up hill to Villa Hermani through the woods - follow the bright pink paint splodges on rocks or trees. Transylvania is like stepping back in time, where local people still travel via horse and cart and cut hay with scythes, although they will be on their mobiles as mobile signals, 3 & 4G and WiFi are readily available. Romania is home to many European brown bears and seeing them from a hide in the forest was one of the highlights of our trip. In addition to the walking there is a visit to Bran Castle which was given to Queen Maria of Romania in 1918, and to the delightful city of Brasov.”

“I took my 21 and 16 year old daughters on this trip in feb 2016 and what a fabulous adventure we had. Finland is truely beautiful in the snow and Exodus yet again know how to pack your time full of wonderful activities. We saw the amazing Northern lights 2 nights in a row and what a magical appearance they made however I purposefully booked this weekend in case the lights did a no show; you would have a wonderful time even if they didn't. Some things you need to know - It is cold v v cold (-30) however the equipment provided FOC is excellent quality and you'll have everything you need. - The trip isn't for the faint hearted driving a snow mobile across the wilderness with your daughter on the back took concentration however, leading the huskies was easy peasey and so amazing ... book it, you won't get better”

“Excellent trip. Great guide ( Jorge) and driver ( Orlando) So much seen....a real full immersive experience. Only thing that wasn't quite 5 stars were the long coach journeys: otherwise top marks all round.”
