LEISURE TOURISM

Backwaters
Kerala's awesome backwater network includes five large lakes interlinked by beautiful narrow canals, and filled by 41 gushing rivers flowing down the hills of the Western Ghats. This amazing system of waterways is dotted with towns and cities offering backwater cruises that traverse the nooks and bends of narrow canals, estuaries and lakes.

Come over : experience the culture and spirit of Kerala’s backwaters. We have houseboat cruises, backwater facing resorts, and can help you interact seamlessly with traditional communities living on the banks.
Kerala’s backwaters harbour and support fragile coastal ecosystems that offer shelter to many unique species of aquatic life like crabs, frogs, mudskippers wetland birds like terns, storks, herons, cormorants, fishing eagles, and animals like otters and turtles. We are sincerely concerned about these ecosystems and ensure all our tour programs are eco-friendly and leave the smallest possible footprint.

Hill Stations
Hill stations were refuges from summer heat for European colonisers and are high altitude places that have a more pleasant climate when compared to the plains. They offer spectacular mountain views and are very good for treks, tent camps and wildlife viewing. Pontiac Journeys operates tours and treks to and within Ooty, Kodaikanal, Munnar, Wynad and Vagamon.
Hill stations also offer wildlife viewing and birding opportunities and we at Pontiac Journeys, through our passion for wildlife and nature, have charted out fascinating treks and tent camps through the montane forests. You can view wildlife, watch birds and butterflies and commune with nature like never before.
