For too long Sri Lanka was promoted purely as a beach destination. But there is so much more to this blessed isle. Here are some of the activities available.
Whitewater Rafting: Experience the thrills and spills of an exciting rafting adventure in a jungle paradise. In one section all you can hear is the pounding water rushing through the rapids. In the next only the chirping birds break the silence as you breathe in the wilderness.
Scuba Diving: The most popular diving spots are from Beruwela to the beach resort of Unawatuna on the south coast. Further south, experienced divers can also explore old shipwrecks.
Horse Riding: Experience the island’s most beautiful surroundings on horseback. The Marwari horses, famed for their endurance in challenging climates, have been specially imported from Rajastan in Northern India.
Cricket: Cricket is a national obsession in Sri Lanka. We can provide tours that would blend your Cricket interests with the wonders Sri Lanka.
Cycling: The size of Sri Lanka makes it extremely accessible by bike and a two- wheel adventure is a great way to view the country’s beautiful landscapes. Hear the birds tweet as you cruise along the Horton Plains or a jungle path, take a pedal back in time in the ruins of the ancient cities at Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura, or try a relaxing route along the beaches on the south-west coast.
Golf: Sri Lanka now offers enthusiastic golfers a perfect tropical getaway with three beautiful courses. From the historic Royal Colombo in the capital, to the recently developed Victoria Golf Club, nestled among the verdant green hills of the central highlands, and Nuwara Eliya Golf Club in the tea country, Sri Lanka proves quality can be better than quantity.
Fishing: Fishing provides one of Sri Lanka’s most enduring images – even if it is difficult to tell these days whether the famous stilt fishermen of Weligama are more interested in catching fish or tourists.
