'River and Country' was initiated by a few natives of Kuttanadu in 1996. We started by converting 2 country boats into houseboats. Now we have 8 A/C houseboats with 18 rooms (all together). We have been handling both national and international travel agents of repute since its inception. We are a professionally managed organisation and the travel agents have always been happy with our services.


Our friendly staff has been helping tourists to the cruise of a lifetime for more than 10 years. We combine safety and excitement to ensure our customers have waves of Fun! Enjoy a leisure cruise with River an Country! Sit back and relax as you get an all-new perspective of the beautiful backwaters of Alappuzha and its scenic landscape.

The Cruise takes you along lakes frilled by endless expanse of coconut groves. Time and Space lose their relevance as the cool breeze caresses you and the gentle waves rock your boat. Watch the Chinese fishing nets come alive, watch the setting sun paint the sky in breath taking colours. At night fall, drop anchor at any place that catch your fancy and the lullaby of the gentle waves put you to sleep. Wake in the morning to the shouts of the fisherman.
