Luxury Tour in Kerala


Johann, travel designer

Our fashion-icon tour leader has two long-standing passions: photography and The Bullet. But above all, he’s in love with India.

A former colony, Malabar coast has Arab, Portuguese and Dutch influences and has been a crossroads on the world’s spice routes. Delve deep into the heart of a charming, idyllic region full of treasures and flavours. Take roads that wind their way through tea plantations, explore the wild fauna in national parks and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Kerala will seduce you with its spicy cuisine, lagoons and enchanting backwaters, as well as relaxing massages and friendly locals. A motorcycle tour in south India is ideal for anyone who loves nature, craves a change of scenery and wants a gentle introduction to India’s diversity.
