Enchanting Goa Bike Tour

goa bike tour 11

Overview

Though Goa is India’s smallest state, it packs in a variety of experiences; from the breezy seaside routes to bio-diversity hot spots, meandering rivers, and crumbling heritage monuments. Discover the comparatively untreaded paths of Goa on this cycling tour.

This trip is an amalgam of the magnificent Sahyadri Western Ghats covered in thick forests, the ecologically devastated mining belt in Sanguem, and the splendid Dudhsagar Waterfalls. The voyage winds its way from the wildlife sanctuaries to the calm and peaceful banks along the River Mandovi and also skirts past the World Heritage site of Old Goa. Experience Goa in a whole new way with us!

Day 2: Chorla

Our guide meets you at your hotel in the early morning. From Panjim, we head towards Chorla. Today, we ride past a road flanked by beautiful forests with a robust wildlife population, then past some gradual long climb till we hit the hotel. Settle here into a Nature Resort and admire the spectacular valley. If your legs still have energy, go on a short hike in the surrounding forest. Enjoy the picturesque waterfall, rich wildlife, and splendid views.

DAY 3MollemNature’s Nest GoaB,L,D60km / 36micycling

Day 3: Mollem

With a few uphills and a constantly green-forested region for the company, we head to the 13th-century temple, Tambdi Surla’s Mahadeva Temple. The ancient temple is built in a Jain style with basalt. The countryside area is brilliant to cycle around with rich green thickets and nothing but birdsong filling the air around. Our next stop is the Bhagwan Mahavir Sanctuary close to Mollem, which is one of the largest national parks in Goa.

DAY 4MollemNature’s Nest GoaB,L,D

Day 4: Mollem

Spend the day visiting the Bhagwan Mahavir Wildlife Sanctuary, set amidst the foothills of the Western Ghats and the largest wildlife preserve within the state of Goa. It is also home to the famous Dudhsagar waterfall, the Devil’s Canyon, the Tambdi Surla temple, the Tambdi falls, and a huge variety of plant, bird, and animal life.

DAY 5NetravaliTanshikar’s Spice FarmB,L,D55km / 33micycling

Day 5: Netravali

We ride with gradual climbs and past sugarcane fields to reach Netravali. This is one of the most undiscovered spice plantation areas and a major attraction for nature lovers, usually away from the touristic ardor of the beaches. After settling in, head out for a 3km trek to the waterfall if you wish, worth the effort to see the gushing waters.

DAY 6Palolem BeachB35km / 21micycling

Day 6: Palolem Beach

Start with a climb of about 5km and then it’s a downhill ride past paddy fields and forest hills to Goan beaches. Spend the rest of the day in leisure at the beach. The constant sound of the sea is therapeutic as you settle with a good book in the breezy verandah.

Extend your stay in Goa and spend time in leisure at the beach or travel further as per your onward plans.
