This is an unforgettable week on the bikes and is designed to be broadly doable by all riders. Experience quiet backroads, lots of downhills and comfortable accommodation with style and character as you explore Sri Lanka by bike.
Sri Lanka has an incredibly diverse landscape, rich culture and an amazing collection of flora and fauna. We experience all of these aspects of the island on this trip as we travel from the central city of Kandy through the tea plantations and national parks to the coast. There we enjoy the famously beautiful southern beaches before concluding in the historic Galle Fort. Along the way, we have the opportunity for plenty of cultural immersion as well as lots of time to check out the amazing wildlife and untouched nature of this island gem.
A great trip to pick up as part of a wider Sri Lanka holiday, or the mainstay of your adventure.
