This 3-day cycling tour of Hampi will take you through some of the most interesting parts of the region. The tour is designed such that you will experience both sides of Hampi - On the one hand, the majestic ruins of the Vijayanagara empire offer interesting perspectives into the glorious history of the Deccan plateau and of the Indian subcontinent as a whole. On the other, the nature trails we've curated will give you incredible views of the rocky shrub forests, rivers and lakes of this breathtakingly beautiful region. The warm hospitality and laid back vibe of the cafes and cottages will put you in just the right frame of mind for a memorable cycling holiday in Hampi. Oh, and as always, we've curated an experience that is off-the-beaten-path so don't expect a hop-on-hop-off tourist circuit!

Tour highlights:
  • An exploration by bicycle of some select ruins that are off the frequented tourist circuits
  • Bicycle rides along the canals of Hampi offering breathtaking views.
  • The mighty Tungabhadra river and its many tributaries
