Munroe Island canoe tours for Kerala backwaters day tour. Backpacking Kerala India

 

If you’re looking for a quieter alternative to the Alleppey backwaters, you just might love the Munroe Island backwaters.

The best way to get a Munroe Island canoe tour would be do go stay on the island for a night or 2 (or more!) and then arrange a canoe tour through your accommodation.

Otherwise, you can probably contact any guesthouse or homestay on Munroe Island and they will likely be happy to arrange it for you.

There are homestays on Munroe Island, and many will also offer you a free bicycle rental so you can go cycling around Munroe Island.

 

My backwaters canoe ride cost 500 rupees (US$7) for a 2 hour sunrise canoe tour.

For comparison, Alleppey canoe tours are usually around 1,000 rupees (US$15) but the tours around this price range are full-day tours that come with breakfast and lunch.

 

A canoe ride through the Munroe Island backwaters will give you a much quieter backwaters experience from a canoe though!
