Known locally as “God’s own country,” tranquil South India can feel like a world away from the cacophony of Delhi and Jaipur, offering families the chance to discover a beautiful region of forests, dreamy waterways, wildlife sanctuaries and spice plantations. Much of our relaxing South India Family Adventure takes place in stunning Kerala, which is famous for its palm-lined beaches and picturesque backwaters formed by a centuries-old network of canals that link spice plantations to the ocean. We’ll also explore fascinating Cochin (Kochi), a historic colonial city and spice trading hub that remains a cultural potpourri of Arab, British, Chinese, Dutch and Portuguese influences.


Highlights of this adventure include visits to two wildlife sanctuaries to view elephants, tigers and deer and more. You’ll take a deep dive into local culture and discover how the spice trading hub’s history has influenced cooking techniques, farming methods and an array of artisanal crafts. Most of all, you’ll come away with indelible memories of this magical place with its beautiful scenery, fragrant cuisine, fascinating history and warm-hearted people. 


We offer customized adventures  to South India for families or groups, similar to our own Global  Family exploration.
