Houseboat on Kerala backwaters, India


Kerala Holidays

You could spend a lifetime exploring the nuances that make each place – and each day – distinctly different from the last in India. Each is marked by its own food, festivals and traditions. And there's an ever-changing landscape too. On Kerala holidays and the languid south, you'll find the pace much slower than in the frenetic north. Tranquil rural villages, deserted white-sand beaches and wildlife-rich rainforest make Kerala the perfect haven. Beautiful countryside, rolling plains and lush valleys are home to elephants, monkeys and other flora and fauna.

On Exodus Kerala tours you'll have the opportunity to stay on a converted rice barge and explore the sleepy backwaters. The barges are open on both sides, encouraging a natural breeze and allowing stunning views of both banks of the river. Throughout the journey watch local life pass by, and in the evenings visit villages to experience life here more closely.

In focus: Tropical Kerala 

As you near the coast, intricate networks of lakes, rivers and estuaries criss-cross the timeless landscape. Travel in style along the Kerala backwaters on a traditional houseboat, meandering through the lush tropical vegetation and past sleepy villages where the pace of life has remained the same for hundreds of years. Fascinating old towns such as Cochin, an intricate mix of religions and delicious food add to this potent brew.
