Exceptional Service

We offer top class service with a trained and professional trip leader always accompanying the group to handle any request or emergency.

Safety First

Our journeys are always built with your safety in mind. We use private cabs for transport & city center hotels for stay. We also collaborate with tourism boards for local support.

Small Groups

Our groups are deliberately small. We believe such groups make for better shared experiences. Start off as strangers but come back as friends for life.

Surf’s Up!

Surfing is fun, safe and easy with Shaka Surf Club’s instructors leading the way. So, grab a board, learn the basics, and hit the waves! Woohoo!

We’ll meet at the Byond Travel office at 5.30 AM for a briefing about the journey to follow, plus meet the rest of your crew and your trip leader, Candida.
 
Then: it’s time to hit the road! Destination: Mangalore, a 360 km ride over straight highways, followed by winding roads in Karnataka's Western Ghats. We will have lunch on the way. 
 
By 2:00 PM, we will reach the Phalguni River Lodge where we will be staying tonight. The lodge is located in an eco-educational park, and boasts beautiful views of the Gurupura River and surrounding coconut groves and acacia plantations. 
 
Check-in and relax in your cottage. Then, join the group for tea on the deck at 4:00 PM. 
 
Afterwards, you’re free to do as you please. Recommended: visit the artisan village to see local craftsmen at work making pottery, oil extraction, and creating bamboo products. Or, stop by the biological park, where you can see different species of snakes and birds, as well as wild boar, porcupine, tigers and lions. Adrenaline junkies, there are watersports on offer as well! 
 
We’ll gather at 8:00 to warm ourselves around the campfire, and exchange stories from the road. Following this, we’ll have dinner, and turn in for the night. 
Wake up at leisure, enjoy your breakfast, take a walk around the resort – there’s no hurry this morning.

Later, we’ll go on a short ride to Kodi Bengare to catch some waves with the Shaka Surf Club! Don’t worry if you’ve never surfed before, the instructors will help you learn the basics, whilst keeping you safe throughout. (Please note that this is an optional activity at an additional cost, and that in order to take surf lessons, you must know how to swim).

Lunch: at Giri Manja's, Mangalore's best-kept secret, where the house specialty – fish fry – is one that will make you rave about your meal for a long time to come.

We’ll return to the hotel afterwards, and relax for the rest of the day.
Fuel up on breakfast as we have an adventurous ride in store today. We’ll leave at 9:00 AM for a 150 km ride towards Murdeshwar, along the coast.

Upon arrival, you can go scuba diving or snorkelling! Then, we will make our way to a beautiful, private waterfall, where you can swim in clear, cool waters.

We will have lunch at Bhatkal, and then head back to the hotel after the eventful day, pausing to watch the sunset by the beach.
Today, we’ll make straight for Gokarna, a small sleepy coastal town with beaches to rival Goa’s. Here, we will be staying at the famed Om Beach.

The lesser-known Kudle Beach, the quiet Half Moon Beach and Paradise Beach are scenic strips of sand sandwiched between the hills. You can stroll along the beachfront, or plunge into the blue waters, trek in the rocky hills or just sit back and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
Gokarna’s charm lies in its laid-back, rustic atmosphere and simple pleasures, which we’ll enjoy to full effect today, starting with breakfast at the beach.

For the rest of the day, adopt a take-it-easy policy, lounging in the sun, and swimming in the water. If you’re up for a little activity, you can go on a beach trek.
It’s an early start to the day (around 5:00 AM) as we make our way back to Bangalore – after breakfast, of course.

It’s a 500km ride back, with lunch en route. We should reach Bangalore at around 5:00 PM.
