Starting in Kochi and ending in Male, the trip Kerala & Maldives Adventure is a guided adventure tour that takes 12 days. You will be traveling through Male, Felidhu Atoll, Kochi and 6 other destinations in India and Maldives. Kerala & Maldives Adventure is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

Discover Kerala and the Maldives in one sweeping journey. From Kochi to Trivandrum discover the vibrant yet relaxed coast line of South-West India and the translucent waters and white sand of the Maldives. This remarkable journey encompassing two exciting destinations highlights how trade, imperial conquest, religious and cultural interaction have all played their part in these mystic lands where the ancient and contemporary exist side by side. Our journey begins in India's tropical south where Kochi is a jewel in the crown of Kerala with its European heritage and true cosmopolitan temperament. Enjoy meandering by kayak through the spectacular backwaters, where the languid pace and lush tropical scenery is interrupted only by close-up glimpses of traditional village-life. Hope your way down the coast taking in all it has to offer from pictuesque beaches to tranquil wetlands and waterways brimming with life. This journey comes to end in the clear and translucent waters, coral reefs and white sand of the Maldives. What could be better than cruising on a dhoni to experience island hopping far from the crowds, learn about the local way of life and snorkel the spectacular reefs of the Indian Ocean, the perfect way to end this enchanting journey of discovery.

“My Back Road Cambodia trip was the most amazing, rewarding, challenging and confronting travel I have embarked on. Our Cambodian crew were beyond amazing and selflessly shared their country and culture with us, tailoring our itinerary to suit our group. We numbered six only - all intrepid travellers and we immediately bonded - our commonalities were obvious and my life is definitely richer for having this opportunity and wonderful experience - Thank you.”

“We are a widely travelled couple of 70 year olds and both the Egypt and Jordan Explorer trips were absolutely amazing and far exceeded our expectations. The guides and drivers were totally professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and looked after us very well. Both trips covered everything on the itinerary and as we had spare time at the start and end of our Egypt section, our guide offered us a few options such as the Bent Pyramid, Alexandria, Dendara Temple and the Cairo Islamic Quarter visit that we gladly took up. All airport meet/greet and transfers went smoothly and the overnight train trip from Aswan to Cairo was a unique experience. We thoroughly recommend World Expeditions, we have travelled with them previously and will most certainly travel with them again.”

“Our recent family trip to Nepal with World Expeditions exceeded our expectations. The Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri itinerary was a perfect mix of culture, spectacular scenery and high altitude trekking. We can not thank our outstanding guide Romi enough. His passion for his job, his knowledge of Nepal and its history, the professional way he assisted with health issues, his guitar skills and his sense of humour really added to our group's Nepal experience. We were very grateful for our pre-trek training of walking up and down many steps. Although some sections were challenging, we always felt comfortable and were taught how to walk slowly to cope with the altitude. We will definitely be returning to Nepal with World Expeditions.”
