The challenge

  • Cycle more than 300kms through spectacular scenery and the backwaters of southern India
  • Explore historic Cochin, a former Portuguese settlement
  • Experience the diverse birdlife of the Thattekkad Bird Sanctuary
  • Pedal the backroads through tea and spice plantations
  • Catch a glimpse of Kerala's incredible wildlife, including tigers and elephants

Prepare to be mesmerised by Kerala. Meaning ‘land of coconuts’, it’s hardly surprising Kerala is almost entirely shaded by a palm canopy. Home to elephants, tea plantations, a world-class cuisine and many adventure travel opportunities, India’s tropical south is the perfect setting for a life-changing adventure.

Soak up the laid back atmosphere as you explore this idyllic coastal state during five days of challenging cycling. Beginning and ending in historic Cochin, set amid a cluster of islands and narrow peninsulas, the route passes through cardamom plantations, paddy fields and dramatic mountain scenery. So when all the hard work is done, why not take a tour of this picturesque corner of the world?
