Embrace both pedal and paddle on this Kochi bike tour that cruises down to the beautiful backwaters of India, stops at a local’s house for lunch, and glides through the picturesque rivers of Ezhupunna. Not to mention the beaches, fisherman’s farms, and villages we’ll check out on the way. We couldn’t fit more into this tour even if we wanted to!

What could be more perfect than spending the day breezing through rural India on a bike, taking in the sights and sounds, stopping along the way for some authentic local food? We know, sounds pretty great to us too. This Kochi tour is just that and more - let’s ride! 

We’ll kick off this Kochi bike tour in Fort Kochi, a port town filled with fascinating sights such as the Santa Cruz Basilica and Vasco da Gama church. We’ll breeze past these spots at the beginning of the tour, and your local guide will stop along the way to give you the lowdown on Kochi and what makes it tick. We’ll also pay a visit to the fishermen who use traditional nets for their craft, and take a break at the beaches most popular with the locals.

We’ll continue to tour Kochi and head towards Ezhupunna backwaters. En route we’ll stop by sea shore fish auction centres, and onwards to prawn peeling centres. These places are the backbone of the fishing industry in Kochi, making them the perfect place for you to get a real feel for the people who live and work here. We’ll cruise down coconut tree-lined streets, and if we have enough time we may even stop at a local toddy bar for a drink.

Upon reaching the backwaters, it’ll be time to take a break and have some lunch. But not just any lunch! You’ll be treated to a traditional fisherman’s lunch with a local family, which will consist of fresh fried fish and tasty curry dishes. During this time in the villages you’ll have the unique chance to interact with locals and experience Kerala village life, an opportunity you’re sure to remember for a long time.

In the afternoon, we’ll give the bikes a break for a couple of hours and hop on a canoe or shikara boat ride through the narrow canals. This relaxing part of the tour will get you right up close to the beautiful waters, the veins that run through this part of India, making it so naturally stunning.

After your scenic boat ride, we’ll hop back on our bikes and return to Kochi, stopping off along the way to check out some prawn culturing farms and Kumbalanghi model tourism village. We’ll also have plenty of opportunity to stop and take pictures, and once you see this gorgeous scenery, you’ll definitely want to - trust us! 

The total distance covered on this Kochi tour is around 34km, and we’ll be riding at a leisurely pace with plenty of stops. This tour is suited to cyclists of all levels, so don’t worry if you’re not a pro! We won’t be taking on any devilish hills – the terrain is fairly easy and gentle.

“Our family so enjoyed our visit to the pyramids and driving/walking through the villages. It was fun using public transportation. Our family group with young teenagers would never have tried it without the help of a guide, so this was fantastic! Rodrigo was energetic, fun, knowledgable, spoke both English and Spanish fluently, and had good rapport with all four of us. We loved visiting the family for dinner - they graciously welcomed us and the food was delicious; since our own daughter is close to having her quince años celebration, we all enjoyed going through their photo albums of their own daughters' party and talking about all the details. It was a completely different eating experience than we had anywhere else during our stay. The only moment that was a little over-the-top or pressured was our last stop on the tour of family businesses before dinner - while we enjoyed what we saw, and happily tried and bought products, by that point we were hungry and a little information-saturated, so we could have spent half as much time on discussion there. But we appreciated the quality and friendliness of each stop. We recommend it highly!”
