Island Cycle Tours

Goa’s green hills, the Western Ghats in the interior, and its long beach stretches offer the most scenic, diverse and interesting biking routes in the country. Cycling through the villages of Goa is a pleasant and relaxing experience. Traditional houses, temples, churches and mosques, verdant greenery and the ever-present backwaters offer a soothing backdrop to leisurely rides through the countryside. Small bakeries and cafes en route offer a taste of local fare, and a traditional taverna is never too far away.

We take you on tiny tours of Goa’s riverine islands in the province that was once called ‘Ilhas’, meaning “islands” in Portuguese. Each lasts around three hours, taking in a piece of history and a slice of culture. Each tour includes a river crossing on Goa’s famous ferry boats.
