For most leisure-seekers a picture-perfect postcard of a holiday in Kerala entails spectacular views of the sea, mesmerising sunsets, visits to cultural centres and historical sites of importance all topped off with an idyllic trip along the backwaters and this five-day thoughtfully curated package gives travellers just that experience.
Start your sojourn with an activity-packed two-day itinerary in Kannur. Succumb to the glittering views of the Arabian Sea offered from the Kannur Lighthouse and Cliff Walkway. Wake up early morning on day two to visit the Parassinikkadav Sree Muthappan Temple, located on the banks of the Valapattanam river for a traditional dance enactment of the Muthappam Theyyam. Revisit Kannur’s historical importance at Fort St. Angelo and understand why Kannur forged its reputation as a globally-recognised handloom hub with a stop at a weaving centre. No cultural immersion in the northern Malabar region would be complete without a stopover at the Kerala Folklore Academy and a Kalarippayattu centre, both of which are checked off the list in this package.
The third day of this package will see you proceeding towards Kasaragod. Enjoy a pit stop at Kunhimangalam, a village that is renowned for its bronze and bell metal craftsmanship, and then head onwards to the Kavvayi Backwaters. A shuttle ferry will transport you to this remote and beautiful island. The last leg of day three will see you checking in to your beach resort at Nileshwaram and you will be rewarded by a houseboat cruise along the Valiyaparamba backwaters. Spend the following day at leisure punctuated with visits to the majestic Bekal Fort, and an exhilarating kayaking adventure along the backwaters.
Allow your idyllic odyssey to culminate on the fifth and final day with a visit to Kerala’s only lake temple – the Ananthapura Lake Temple.
