Sri Lanka, the ‘Teardrop of India,’ is a collection of ancient and natural delights. The island country sits tantalizingly just off India’s most southern tip and is nothing short of a jackpot for heritage lovers as they cycle from religious monuments, to monarchical and colonial sites.
Bicycling short distances at a relaxed pace, the tour will visit five of Sri Lanka's eight UNESCO World Heritage sites. Along the way the cyclist will experience the rural tranquility of local life and absorb a very traditional and grassroots feel of Sri Lanka. Included are visits to the beautiful old town of Kandy located on a picturesque lake, Dambulla's Golden Temple and a wildlife safari in Minneriya National Park. The tour concludes with a visit to the extraordinary UNESCO heritage site Anuradhapura whereits palaces, monasteries and monuments serve as a principal shrine of Buddhism.
This 7-day tour covers 222 kilometres and cost US$1,495 per person with an additional US$295 for single supplement. Included is bike rental, accommodation, most meals, drinks and snacks while riding. Scheduled departures are in the months of January, February, May, June, and September to December.
