More Information

At the southern tip of India the state of Kerala, and to its north, the state of Karnataka, encapsulate everything that is magical about this tropical region; traditional towns, a mix of mountainous and coastal landscape, endless white-sand beaches and sensational south Indian cuisine. Starting out from Mysore and ending up in Trivandrum, this easy-paced cycling holiday provides a great way to explore this colourful part of India. Heading south, the ride passes through the cool heights of the Western Ghats where the sanctuaries at Bandipur and Mudumalai rear wild elephants, tigers and leopards in their jungles and bamboo forests.

After crossing the hill-station of Ooty at 2240 metres in the Nilgiri Hills, a rolling hill-country ride and amazing descent takes us into Kerala, where we cycle round old forts and religious rock shrines as well as through colourful villages where rural life has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. Heading south again, we spend a day in the old port of Kochi and enjoy a homestay and an overnight houseboat cruise on the ‘backwaters’, the vast network of channels and lakes, before the final coastal ride to Varkala for a chance to laze on the beach and reflect on an unforgettable experience of rural India.

5 Stars

This was an Exceptional holiday, that exceeded my expectations. The tour Guides were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble for them, they made this trip special.

After many years of wanting to visit India, Active India was recommended by some friends who had made a similar trip last year. From the outset this company was excellent from the planning and fine tuning of our special holiday right through the trip until its conclusion. Drivers and guides were excellent and hotels were as we had booked- some good 3 stars and some beautiful havelis and 4 stars. The company even had a whatsapp group set up to provide instant help with anything that came up. We travelled through Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Kerala. It was a fascinating and richly cultural experience. Active India is an excellent company which has been in existence for 20 years and we would highly recommend them.

This is the second trip we’ve done through Active India and with good reason. They are very flexible and responsive tailoring our trip specifically following my requests in advance but adding their suggestions advice and expertise of the areas we visited. All team members from all offices checked ahead to ensure everything went smoothly and were on hand if it didn’t (which was rare). They even set up a WhatsApp group so I had confidence and contact should I need it at all times. Everyone from the managing director down cared that we had the best time smoothly run to itinerary and that really matters. It’s what sets them ahead of other tour companies. Highly recommend as I have utmost trust and faith in this company following 2 successful wonderful trips to 2 completely different areas in amazing India. So it’s thank you to Ravi Tickoos Heena and all the team but for me it’s a special thanks to Priya who always goes above and beyond.
