India is a land of astonishing architecture and ancient cultural treasures, but is it also a land of wild rivers, dense forests, majestic mountains, breathtaking landscapes, varied wildlife, friendly and welcoming people and delicious cuisine. Our specially tailored multi-activity program in the southern India region of Kerala allows you to explore the wonders of this colorful country while pumping a bit of adrenalin into your veins. Our new itinerary offers a unique way to discover a side to India that few visitors to this magical land ever experience.
In almost every part of India, there are great walking opportunities and adventures to be had for the outdoor enthusiast. The Kerala region is one of India's most beautiful and diverse, offering beautiful countryside, coastline, grasslands and rain forests. During our trip you'll come face to face with the spectacular wilderness, far-flung villages with their own peculiar traditions and the magnificent wildlife that inhabit this region of southern India.
Hiking, biking and boat travel are by far the best modes of transportation in this area, allowing us to experience an off-the-beaten path journey through several scenically diverse regions, the highest mountains in South India, tea gardens at Munnar and the wilderness at Periyar, before reaching the legendary backwaters for kayaking in the land of the ‘Green Magic’.
This is another of our India tours of your dreams!
