House Boat in India
Premium Class Boat
Nothing brings you up close and personal with a terrain than a bike and boat tour and no trip to Kerala, India would be complete without a tour of the backwaters. As you immerse in this tropical ecosystem, your tour will include a few nights on one of Kerala, India's houseboats.
There are several options for accommodations as you cruise the five lakes, various lagoons, and canals of the Kerala backwater. These waters are located parallel to the Arabian Sea coast (known as the Malabar Coast) in southern India. Kerala Houseboats are called ‘Kettuvallams’ in Malayalam. They were used in ancient days to transport grains and spices around the backwaters but today, completely restored, provide a unique method of accommodation and transportation.
*Please note that houseboats in India do not always have running hot water. Hot water is supplied to you by the crew.
- Capacity: varies depending on number in group
- Size of boat: varies
- Private bathroom (many boats do not have running hot water but we can request this of course!)

*NOTE: E-bikes feature a small electrical engine and battery that assist and ease your pedaling but you still have to pedal yourself. While riding an e-bike can greatly contribute to the enjoyment of your trip, it is not intended for untrained cyclists as it is not easy to handle such a bike. The engine and battery make the bike much heavier than a regular bike and it also accelerates faster. Handling it well requires good basic cycling skills and confidence.
