Tour Overview

A 6 Day experience in Kerala covering the historic city of Fort Cochin, the scenic backwater and at a working organic farm at the foothills of Western Ghats.



6 Day Kerala Eco Tour

Day 1: Fort Kochi
We will check into a Heritage Hotel right in the midst of Fort Kochi and discover this historic city of ancient churches, synagogues and palaces on the first day of your Kerala Eco Tour. In the evening we will attend a traditional dance performance - Kathakali 
Day 2: Cruise on a Rice boat
We travel to Alleppey to embark on one of Kerala's special accommodation - the Houseboat. This Kerala Eco Tour gives you an ever memorable cruise through the lagoons, lakes and rivers that make up the beautiful backwaters of Kerala. 
Day 3-4: Heritage Villa by the Backwaters
We would be spending the next couple of days at a riverside heritage home near Alleppey, by the beautiful waterways and backwaters of the Kuttanad region. This heritage home is located on an island resplendent with exotic flora, breathtaking flowers, myriad birds and butterflies to make a memorable holiday, affordable and unforgettable. A truly wonderful way to spend your time on the banks of the backwaters of Kerala! You can roam around the local village, go canoeing with your friendly boatman or watch the toddy tappers at work. There is also the opportunity to visit the ancient local temples or the old church along the backwaters. If you are in the mood to learn a little of Keralan cooking, you have come to the right place.
Day 5: Living on a Kerala Farm
We will move to a home stay tucked away in the interiors of Kerala, by the foothills of the Western Ghats. This is an organic farm with goats, cows and buffaloes. From the patio of your room you can see the mountains of the Western Ghats. This is indeed a retreat into quiet village solitude. A walk through the countryside, through rubber plantations or to the nearby river is salve to the tired senses. It is an ideal place to get a ringside view of growing spices or learn a little about the organic farming.
Day 6: Depart
Today after you  say your farewells, depart on your onward journey, ending of the memorable Kerala Eco tour.

Inclusions

  • Accommodation in heritage villas, house boat & homestays,
  • Most Meals,
  • All transfers by aircon vehicle with English-speaking driver cum guide 

Holiday Feedback

We were so looking forward to seeing Kerala and our trip did not disappoint us in any respect. Brijesh made us so welcome and we really do feel that we have made a great friend as well as him coordinating all arrangements for our trip with great humour and diligence. We had so many laughs with him, leaving him this time was quite sad! Dixon was a blessing too with snacks, drinks and an air conditioned car popping up when we most needed him as the cycling was very hot at times.The arrangements for our trip were seamless and you had really understood very well what we wanted with all of it suiting us perfectly. We stayed in the most lovely places with Teak house, Paneilly and Develokam being some of our favourites. Camellia house and the tree house was also just lovely.Altogether another brilliant holiday and we are heartily recommending you to anyone that asks us who arranged our trip. Thank you to you all.Mellinda & Richard Allison 2016-11-13

Just a short note to say we had a fantastic week. The organisation was brilliant. We also enjoyed Vipin's company and knowledge of the flora and fauna. Our only disappointment was that we only booked one week! It has certainly been our best week in India. We would love to come back to Kerala and do more with Kalypso. We will certainly recommend you to our friends.  Harry & Gill 2015-02-09
