The wisdom of this land tells us that river kayaking is the most conscious and grand way to begin an introduction to Kerala's waters. With virtually no traffic to contend with you will have signed up for one of the most soul-stirring adventures of your life. Depending on your level of expertise, and how comfortable you feel, kayaks can take you anywhere- rivers, lakes, or out into the seas..

"The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare let go…"
- Illusions, Richard Bach

We invite you on feather light riverine trails on kayaks to reconnect with Earth and life itself. Let us set out on an early morning paddle, the kayaks gliding over the glass like rivers, and lakes. Imagine being lost in the moment as the paddle soars a second hanging in mid-air, then ‘lo-behold’ the ever increasing patterns of water waves. Among the distorting reflections, you may find your heart singing the song that the Brahminy Kite resonates to its mate. We welcome you to such connections and many more…!
