Divar Island E-Bike Tour by Make It Happen

Experience the rich cultural heritage of Divar in our Chronicles and Echoes of Divar Island E-Bike Tour

Divar Island E-Bike Tour is a roller coaster ride into the old world charm of paddy fields, ancient temples, pretty churches, hidden caves, small houses and winding roads. As you enter the island, you’ll find locals sitting with their fishing rods in hope of making a catch in the Mandovi river. The tops of hillocks on the island gives you a lovely view of the river. Divar Island is so blissfully green and tranquil that you’re enticed to slip into a peaceful meditation. All these make for an ideal Goa village tour. Come, take back a slice of life of Goa with you.

Divar is a completely different realm or dimension that exists across the Mandovi River located opposite of Old Goa. Just a few miles from the capital city of Panjim, Divar exhibits stark contrast in lifestyle and one can witness the time slowdown in this quaint river island. Ride the winding roads of Divar as you pass though patches of fields, mangroves, forests, churches, temple sites and some of the most beautiful houses in Goa during our Chronicles and Echoes of Divar Island E-Bike Tour.

In our Chronicles and Echoes of Divar Island E-Bike Tour, you’ll also notice a rainbow of houses. You will drive around the brightly painted houses in reminiscence of the Indo-Portuguese times. Divar is the second largest island of the seven islands which are situated in the Mandovi River, the largest being Charao Island. The island is roughly 6km long by 3km wide and it is connected by four ferry services. The island is a perfect choice for cycling in Goa. Though the Konkan railway line actually runs across the island, the trains do not stop! With a modest population of only 5000 residents, its quaint charm will draw you right in, wishing the train would stop!

We head for a meal in a traditional Indo-Portuguese house. After lunch we visit the sluice gates to understand how the traditional Khazan system works. We then proceed to the main hill where the Piedade Church is located. In the cemetery of the church is the cemetery chapel which shows remains of the Ganesh temple.
