Trail Overview

The Goan Hinterland


Cozily nestled in the beautiful outdoors of the sleepy side of Goa - South Goa, our experience will introduce you to some marvels of the hinterlands - surrounded by verdant greenery and lush spring waters!

On this Goan Hinterland trail, you will be exploring some caves & prehistoric carvings completely shrouded in mystery - such as the Rivona Caves in Goa - and discovering a treasure trove of secrets behind them! We head out to forage for bounties nature has to offer through a tour of a local plantation - where your taste buds are treated to a breakfast cooked by a local family, not easily found in any restaurant/cafe. In addition to that, you will be visiting one of the most prominent temples of South Goa - promising to take you back to a long-lost era through its fascinating stories & legends!  If you thought that was enough, we also conclude the experience by beating the heat in a freshwater stream! So, come, tighten your seatbelts and join us for this roller coaster ride into Goa's hidden hinterlands and hidden caves of Goa!
