Premium Class Boat for Bike Tours


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 have running hot water. Hot water is supplied to you by the crew.
