Caught between the backwaters and Arabian sea, this is simply the best rural biking trail combined with village life experiences around Kochi. It’s a day-cycle ride that lets you feel the charm of simple Keralan backwater villages. We ride through vast paddy fields, fish farms, coconut tree canopies to reach one of the backwater edges. Learn about fish farming, traditional boat making and other local traditions. What you take back from this beautiful ride is a true village experience spiced up with few untold local stories.

Reviews from our friends

All in all a great adventure

My wife and I had a wonderful time on our tour of the Kerala backwaters with Art of Bicycle. Especially as the tailored our trip to include some of the less travelled minor tracks. Among many highlights was a short canoe ferry across one of the canals. Our trip included a four hour kayak through the backwaters along canals inaccessible to house boats. This was very special. I'm also pleased to say that we met no other tourists while cycling. The accommodation and food were all extremely good, and had character. All in all a great adventure.
