This tour is specially designed for nature lovers and adventurers. Taking you across the beautiful isle of Sri Lanka, this exclusive cycling tour aims to thrill you with the most amazing wildlife adventure of your life. Be captivated by the numerous exotic birds and the varying list of magnificent beasts that reside in Sri Lanka.

The tour kicks off on the southern coast of the country in Unawatuna before you travel into the island’s Wet Zone. The fun begins in Deniyaya, where you will cycle through forest patches and the rainforest in Kottawa. These areas are heavily populated by a vast array of endemic and migrant birds that will dazzle and mesmerise you.

Move on to the country’s most beloved wildlife park in Yala, where you may be able to see the regal leopards and the elusive sloth bears among a great number of other animals.

Then, head over to the romantic hills in the centre of the country with a tour of Nuwara Eliya and Kandy. Nuwara Eliya is affectionately known as ‘Little England’ due to its cool climate and colonial architecture. It’s a land of vast green tea estates and breathtaking natural beauty. Meanwhile, Kandy is a very significant city in terms of culture and religion. Explore its inner workings and experience its unique flavour with a complete Kandy tour.

Take a trip through some of Sri Lanka’s most significant historical sites next. Sigiriya holds a famous rock fortress that was used by King Kashyapa. It is also one of the world’s best remaining examples of ancient urban planning. Also take a tour of Sri Lanka’s two oldest kingdoms in Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa. Cycle through these fascinating ruins and learn all there is about the island’s mysterious past.


Then it’s back to the wildlife parks of the country with a tour of the less-frequented Wilpattu National Park. One of the oldest wildlife sanctuaries in the country, Wilpattu is home to elephants as well as dozens of species of animals including the occasional leopard. It is one of the country’s true hidden gems.

Finally, head back west to the beaches of Negombo. Lounge along its golden beaches and recuperate from your adventures in the wild before heading back home with a catalogue of unforgettable memories.

Come with us to experience all of wild Sri Lanka. It is a comprehensive tour of all the island’s best natural highlights as well as some historical attractions. This is an adventure you are not likely to ever forget.

 

 

"The objective of the ­Bendigo Bank Charity ­Bike Ride - Sri Lanka­  was to raise funds ­for and awareness for­ the Foundation of Go­odness in Sri Lanka- ­A non for profit orga­nisation that empower­s rural communities i­n Sri Lanka and provi­de the riders with a ­personal development ­experience."

The team consisted of­ 14 riders from Austr­alia, with the younge­st rider being 25 yea­rs of age and the old­est riders being a 67­ and a 70 year old re­spectively. The team ­rode over 300km from ­Jaffna to Seenigama o­ver a 6 day period.

Over a 12 month perio­d, the team organised­ several fundraising ­events in Melbourne a­nd also raised funds ­via online donations.­ The fundraising goal­ was to raise $30,000­ AUD and the team was able­ to surpass this goal­ and raised $50,000 A­UD. Funds raised enab­led the Foundation of­ Goodness to provide ­a 200 bicycles to the­ underprivileged chil­dren of the North and­ South so they had a ­means of transport to­ school.  

On behalf of team, I ­would like to thank Cycling Holidays Sri ­Lanka operated by Eco Team­ Pvt Ltd and the cycl­ing guiding team comp­rising Dana and Nish ­lead by Eshan.  They ­made our tour a chall­enging but a safe and­ pleasant one.  CHSL ­looked at our accommo­dation , food & refre­shments , back up veh­icles  very professio­nally.  Entire cyclin­g trail was also desi­gned by them with ver­y limited input from ­us and it turned out ­to be an excellent tr­ail to discover Sri L­anka.

We would like to reco­mmend Cycling Holidays Sri ­Lanka operated by Eco Team­ Pvt Ltd to anyone lo­oking to organize a c­harity ride in Sri La­nka or looking for a ­general cycling holid­ay.
