Overview

Book
Suspended like a tear drop at the southern tip of the Indian Subcontinent, tropical Sri Lanka is one of the most vibrant and colourful of travel destinations and the perfect place for a very different kind of road cycling holiday. This new and exciting cycle tour crosses the island from north to south, end to end and takes in many of the countrys finest historical sites, whilst traversing many of the diverse landscapes which make Sri Lanka so special.

Until quite recently large parts of the north were off limits thanks to the action of the separatist Tamil Tigers movement. But all is quiet now and Sri Lanka is ready for you to explore its hidden treasures from the northernmost tip down to the southernmost point. After a rural introductory ride on Day 2, we transfer north to Jaffna and on the next day ride a loop around the Jaffna Peninsula and surrounding islands where there is a unique mixture of colonial charm and vibrant Tamil culture. Then, after dipping our tires in the Indian Ocean, we ride south across the northern plains, stopping off at little-visited Mannar Island. Heading inland and cycling through the flatlands of Sri Lankas rice bowl, we pass a plethora of temples, monasteries and other highlights, such as the 5th century citadel at Sigiriya. A rest day in Kandy, during which we can visit the Temple of the Sacred Tooth, allows us to prepare for the hills. For the next 2 days we cross an area dominated by tea production, climbing on winding roads through the central highlands. What goes up must come down and we descend to end our journey at the southernmost tip of Sri Lanka at Dondra Point where we can commemorate the occasion with another dip of our tires in the Indian Ocean. Combining 9 days of road cycling on surprisingly good roads, with fantastic cultural and natural insights and delicious local cuisine, this is one of the best ways to experience Sri Lanka.
