Sri Lanka is so packed with interesting sights, and traveling by bike gives you a front-row seat to explore them at your own pace. Pedal along small roads through local villages, then speed downhill onto a trail through farmland where you may have to hit the brakes for a giant lizard or mongoose! Ride through Sri Lanka’s lush highlands beyond Colombo down through the rainforest to the coast, visit tea plantations along your journey, and cycle stunning mountainous landscapes around Kandy with breathtaking views and fun descents.

Thanks to Grasshopper Adventures I had – quite literally – the time of my life cycling in Sri Lanka! I did the wonderful 12 day Sip of Ceylon tour. Sri Lanka is a stunning and wonderful mix of diverse terrain and experiences that they give a traveler: rainforest, amazing beaches, mountains, lush tea and rice territory, busy cities and towns. And friendly and curious people at every stop! It’s a gorgeous country – and Grasshopper – through supremely helpful and reliable support every day – made my adventure possible.
