Itinerary Summary

This is a 14 day cycling tour created by Cycling Holidays Sri Lanka, from North to South on the beautiful island of Sri Lanka. A moderate cycling trail which mostly enjoys less traffic, is on the flat terrain and tarmac roads, and offers diversified experiences blended with the natural beauty of the countryside and exposure to the diverse ethnic groups and their cultures.

Riding on the A9 road and cycling to the north eastern part of Sri Lanka, enables you to experience the remains of the civil war which devastated the treasures of the country during a period of 30 years.
