A land of misty highlands and tea plantations, dense jungles and national parks, Sri Lanka is ideally suited to cycle touring. From the palm fringed west coast, we cycle inland through a multitude of Buddhist and Hindu monuments and colonial heritage that characterises the country’s rich cultural history. Our journey leads deep into the rain forest of central Sri Lanka where monks conduct prayers in harmony with the forest before continuing to the hill town of Kandy with its splendid botanical gardens and lush tea plantations. We continue to the rock fortress of Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa - the medieval capital of Sri Lanka, where we swap our bikes for jeeps and take a wildlife safari in the Minneriya National Park.

“This trip was full of adventures and activity. We tasted and explored a wide variety of Sri Lankan culture. Riding was challenging but adjusted suitably to the group. It is recommended to adequately train for long days on the bike. Fun off-road experiences along rice paddies and small villages. Opportunity to sample many fruits for bike snacks. Sri Lanka is new to the tour industry and fascinating for just that reason. Very lovely people. Dumballas caves were outstanding to experience.”
