All about Kerala
Situated in India's far south-west, Kerala is a fascinating state to explore. Famous for its diverse landscape – which includes backwater lagoons, stunning beaches and forest-covered mountains – it also boasts a rich culture that's one of the oldest in the country.
Indeed, Kerala is particularly interesting in that, while being among India's most modern states, it is also one of its most traditional – especially in terms of culture and religion. Expect to come across vibrant festivals, traditional dress, historical health practices and heritage buildings.
In fact, many of these heritage buildings now house boutique hotels – something that makes this state especially well suited to luxury tours.
What to expect on Kerala tours
Our tours to Kerala give you the chance to explore the state's wonderful diversity. Among the amazing experiences you can have is a houseboat cruise through the Kuttanad backwater region, which is full of rice fields, lakes, canals and lagoons.
Indeed, taking a trip to this destination is widely considered to be an absolute must on any break to southern India, which is why a number of our itineraries incorporate it. You'll travel on a converted rice barge, which nowadays often have luxurious interiors that contrast with their humble origins of carrying cargo.
Also known for its beautiful beaches, this region is a fantastic place to explore the country's coastline, boasting glorious white sand and the chance to take a dip in the warm Arabian Sea. Alternatively, if you're keen to see some local wildlife, there is no better place to go than the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is the most visited in the region. Here, you can spot Indian bison, tigers and a wild elephant population.
All of these experiences are available on our 'Kerala in Style' tour, while you'll find they are included with other exciting excursions in a number of other itineraries designed to help you make the most of your getaway.
