A sunset cruise offers travellers 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. 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. Please inform us in advance if you would like to avail our pick up and drop services. 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 3 hours. The local 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. We do have a motorised version of the canoe if you don’t want to paddle it. 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 3-hour cruise, you will enjoy a tuk-tuk ride to a nearby temple. The temple visit brings an end to the program.
