Sri Lanka By Cycle Tour

Tour Details

Cycling is one of the best ways to explore Sri Lanka’s varied landscapes, cultural heritage and experience rural village life. Cycle through rice fields and rural villages; through tea covered hill country or along beautiful palm fringed beaches; explore the ruins of ancient kingdoms dating back to the 3rd century B.C. or jungle tracks in the north central province. A truly rewarding experience.

Four National Cycling Trails have now been developed and cuts across different geographical regions of the island providing a memorable experience of the varying landscapes, rural village live and the ancient heritage.

The size of Sri Lanka makes it extremely accessible by bike and a two- wheel adventure is a great way to view the country’s beautiful landscapes. Hear the birds tweet as you cruise along the Horton Plains or a jungle path, take a pedal back in time in the ruins of the ancient cities at Polonnaruwa and Sigiriya, or the metropolis of Sri Lanka – Colombo.

The terrain throughout the country offers challenges for beginners and experts alike. On some of the steep sections in the hill country, you will feel like you’re in a mountain stage of the tour de France as the villagers cheer the final metres of your ascent. They may then welcome you with a warm smile and a cool drink as you catch your breath.

 Highlights: 

  • Enjoy a Negombo City Tour
  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Golden Cave Temple
  • Uncover the Ancient City of Polonnaruwa & Elephant safari
  • The Rock Fortress of Sigiriya
  • Visit the Temple of the Tooth Relic,
  • The Royal Botanical Gardens of Peredeniya,
  • Hantane Hills Cycling Route
