A sunset cruise offers travelers an opportunity to enjoy an exquisite view of the sunset and to explore the backwater villages. Since the cruise takes place in the evening during sunset, you can expect pleasant weather. The cruise will leave you refreshed and rejuvenated. After the canoe ride, you can also experience a unique tuk-tuk ride.

The check-in point for the canoe cruise is near the Cheepunkal Bridge at Kumarakom. We can either pick you up from your resort or you can drive to the check-in point yourself. Once you reach the spot, you will first be given safety jackets and basic safety instructions. Our guide will then take you to the canoe. With the assistance of our experienced and knowledgeable guide, you will enjoy the canoe ride for about 2 hours. The canoe ride is truly pleasurable since you get to flex your muscles and experience a good workout. As you row the canoe with your own hands, you will enjoy views of the lush green shoreline lightly influenced by the sunset hue. You will also be able to interact with locals on the shore and get an authentic experience of the village life. During the cruise, you will be served hot tea along with Kerala snacks. After the 2-hour cruise, you will enjoy a tuk-tuk ride to a nearby temple. The temple visit brings an end to the cruise.
