Kayaking in the Backwaters

While cruising the backwaters on a rice boat is de rigueur, there’s a whole new world of discovery to be had in the canals too narrow for rice boats. Here, the sounds are just of the swaying palms, the birds, and the gentle splashing of your kayak’s oars. If you can imagine a pace even more relaxing than relaxed, this would be it, as you glide through the lush tropical greenery and explore Kuttinad’s many islands and tiny hamlets with your guide.
