Internationale groepsreis Cycle the Coast of Kerala

Gentle cycling along the tropical Keralan coastline

Food

  • All breakfasts, 4 lunches and 2 dinners included. Lunches on riding days are usually taken in local roadside cafes, allowing us to sample typical south Indian dishes such as poori (deep fried bread served with curry) and dosa (thin pancake made with fermented rice and lentil batter). South Indian food is very much influenced by its tropical landscape; creamy coconut dishes enlivened with delicate spices, served on a banana leaf. It's also an ideal destination if you are a vegetarian. Tea and soft drinks are very cheap, and there'll be plenty of tea stops so that you can enjoy a cold can, a cup of chai or refreshing coconut water. A (large!) bottle of beer is approximately £3 (approx. US$5) but please note that alcohol is difficult to get hold of in Kerala as it is a dry state. Generally you can eat out very cheaply in India. Where food is not included, you should allow approx. £3-£4 (approx. US$4.80 - US$6.40) for lunch, and £5-£6 (approx. US$8 - US$9.60) for dinner without drinks. This amount may vary according to how much you drink. Please note that service in restaurants can be quite slow. Drinking water is provided in the support vehicle, where you can fill your bottle from the containers.

Route 8 daagse fietsvakantie Cycle the Coast of Kerala

Kerala is an excellent place to discover by bike; a true tropical paradise with an idyllic coastline, lush tranquil backwaters, colourful temples and old stone churches. It's not surprising that Kerala is often referred to as 'God's own country'. Offering a gentler experience than the often frenetic north, Kerala is great for a first time bike trip or your first visit to India. From the old spice port of Cochin to the laid-back beach town of Varkala, we gently cycle through beautiful landscapes, fascinating towns and colourful fishing villages, sampling superb south Indian cuisine along the way. A night in a village homestay provides a unique insight into the warm Keralan hospitality, and the backwaters of Kerala are cruised on a traditional houseboat before relaxing on the sweeping beaches of Varkala.
