Village Backwater Tour
Open :7:00am- 6:00pm

A Kerala Village Backwater Tour offers a unique and immersive experience, allowing you to explore the serene backwaters while gaining cultural insights into traditional village life. Hop onto a traditional boat and make your way to a nearby village where your boat will be parked near a canal. Watch locals tap coconut trees for making ‘toddy’, a local drink and then try your luck at making a rope with coir fibres under the watchful guidance of locals.  Then visit a traditional village house where your host will walk you through heritage dishes and serve you a small snack with fresh, tender coconut water.  This is a 4-hour tour and a must do for cultural aficionados.
