"This laid-back tour takes you around the lush green surroundings of Kerala, a land of trees, rivers and backwaters."

The fertile region of Kerala stretches along the south west corner of the Indian peninsula, enjoying 600km of Arabian coastline. Begin your rejuvenating sojourn in the multi-cultural coastal town of Kochi, visiting the Jewish Synagogue and the Mattancherry Palace. A drive inland will take you to Thekkady, renowned for its wealth of spice and tea gardens. The scenery here is stunning, and the aroma of spices hangs in the air. Your final destination is Kumarakom, located on the shores of Vembanadu Lake. Here you will take a gorgeous backwater cruise at sunset, where you can relax and reflect on your leisurely week. It's clear to see why many people herald Kerala as the jewel of South India - the combination of verdant greenery and a gloriously refreshing climate is simply bliss.
