Houseboats - the modern version of the historic rice boats in India

For a nice day cruise aboard a famous houseboat we will take you from Cochin to Alleppey, the extensive water network in the hinterland of the Malabar coast called Backwaters. Our houseboat is the modern version of the old rice boat used in the past to transport goods along the waterways of Kerala. Today's houseboats are much larger and modernized with bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens etc. The crew has a captain, his helper and a chef and they will support you. The houseboat cruises along the quiet backwaters, wider and narrow canals, lakes and lagoons, passes green rice fields, villages, temples, churches, rustic houses, and so on. Enjoy the calm life on the backwaters - it beats in a gentle rhythm. See coconut palms, rubber and cashew trees and the lush vegetation on the shore. You will enter another world - this will surely be the highlight of the tour. Enjoy a traditional Keralan lunch on board during the cruise. Later you will get off at Alleppey and return by car to Cochin.
