A unique cycling tour of Sri Lanka covering some rarely visited sites, starting from USD 941 per person with overnight stays at handpicked accommodations. Single room supplement from: USD 192. All breakfasts, one lunch, three dinners, bike hire, tour leader and entrance fees to all sites included.
The 7 days cycling tour is a part of the complete 14 days tour. Instead of only taking you to all the clichéd attractions recommended to you by travel guides, we take you to some of the less-frequented, hidden treasures spread throughout the island as well.
The fun begins after you are picked up from the airport and transported to your hotel in Kandy. Here, you will meet the crew and set off on your adventure after a day to relax.
You’ll start your cycling tour after a scenic train ride from Kandy to Nany Oya (subject to availability!). Nanu Oya is the nearest train station to Nuwara Eliya.
Misty and cool, Nuwara Eliya is truly a portal to another world which is unlike anything else seen on this tropical island. Colonial-style bungalows and vast tea estates lay scattered across this mountainous terrain waiting to be explored.
The tour includes a walking trail through Sri Lanka’s highest situated national park at Horton Plains. See some of the unique wildlife featured here before heading back down to the traditional villages seen in Belihuloya.
Elephants and more exotic wild animals are up next as you cycle to Udawalawe and then the Sinharaja rainforest.
Then it’s down to the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Galle is a culturally and historically significant city and will be your final destination before departure. Explore its colonial fort and enjoy its sunny beaches before you are transferred back to the airport in time for your flight.
This is your chance to get to know the land intimately and visit some of Sri Lanka’s true gems that have been tucked away from hordes of tourists.
