South India: Kerala Explorer

Sandwiched between the Arabian Sea and the fertile hills of the Western Ghats, Kerala has with good reason been christened “God’s Own Country”. A land of beaches and backwaters, lush tea plantations and spices, it enjoys a cultural heritage that can trace its influences back to Chinese, Arab and European traders.

The journey begins in historic Cochin, “The Queen of the Arabian Sea”, where you’ll have a chance to enjoy its rich mix of colonial and Indian traditions including Kathakali dancing and Keralan cuisine, before continuing into the Western Ghats to the hill resort of Munnar. Set against the backdrop of lush tea plantations, you will then explore the game rich landscapes of Periyar Tiger Reserve by bamboo raft and on foot, before joining an overnight cruise through the beautiful and idyllic Backwaters.

The end of the journey then sees you heading back to the coast, to enjoy a little time sampling the golden beaches and azure waters around Kovalam.

All our holidays can be tailor-made for you.
