10 Nts South India: Luxury Keralan Odyssey

Our 11-day trip offers the perfect taste of Kerala’s stunning tropical beauty. Stroll its beaches; ride in a traditional houseboat through its backwaters, explore southern architecture, and stay in luxurious hotels!

Looking to explore authentic India during your next holiday? We’re thrilled to announce our delightful luxury journey through Kerala. Discover a utopia of lagoons, a sacred land fondly called “God’s Own Country”, where a massive network of waterways link and interlink to be soaked up by the locals who cherish their 900 km watery lifeline but above all life itself!

As Lonely Planet perfectly sums up: "Kerala is a world away from the frenzy of elsewhere….an altogether more laid-back place". And we've added even more wow factor with houseboat excursions, pampering treatments, elephant safaris, plantation tours and dances!

Your journey of a lifetime begins in Kochi, the glorious gateway to Kerala, then onto Munnar where you will enjoy the finest tea with new friends and an elephant ride. Continue to Thekkady to board the wildlife viewing boat at the Periyar Tiger Reserve before setting out on an enchanting overnight house boat from Alleppey. Your final destination is Poovar where you will enjoy the "paradise" of India, with its coconut trees and sweeping beaches!
