    Shuttle: ~ 2.5hrs

  3. Day 3: Nuwara Eliya

    Click here to expand

    Today is the most spectacular ride past tea plantations to Sri Lanka’s old British tea valley, Nuwara Eliya. With gradual climbs and few steep hills to conquer, it is a beautiful journey which takes us to the hill country of Sri Lanka with a climb of about 1,400m. The biking may be hard sometimes and the only thing that will keep you going is picturesque scenery, reservoirs, waterfalls and panoramic views of beautiful mountain ranges.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Distance cycled: ~ 65km / 40mi*

  4. Day 4: Nuwara Eliya

    Click here to expand

    It’s a classic loop today around Nuwara past tea plantations and waterfalls. Clumpy green hills covered in a moss like carpet of bright tea shrubs, keep us company through the ride. Nuwara is known as the hilly respite from the plains of Colombo, so expect clean crisp cool air to refresh you completely.

    On our ride, we encounter tea pickers, undulating hills, small villages and small shops on the corners of the roads. Feel free to strike up a conversation. You will be delighted at the eagerness and warmth of Sri Lankans, to make guests feel at home.

    In the evening, enjoy a stroll in the town.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Distance cycled: ~ 35km / 21mi

  5. Day 5: Ella

    Click here to expand

    Our next stop is the hill town of Ella.

    Riding from Nuwera, we pass through grasslands, forests, dairy farms, wind mills to reach Ella. Standing at an elevation of 1,041m, Ella is a little off-beat town when compared to Nuwera Eliya with views of green mountains around.

    You can explore the town of Ella on foot.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Distance cycled: ~ 55km / 33mi*

  6. Day 6: Udawalawe National Park

    Click here to expand

    Ella is an excellent place for a walk and short hike. We recommend to take an early morning hike to the nearby areas such as Little Adam’s Peak or Rawana Falls.

    Have a late morning start and ride to Udawalawe National Park along gravel roads, through forests with grass lands, shrubs and teak plantations of Sri Lanka. Be careful while riding through an initial descend as we drop from about 900m to 80m within a short distance. After a long patch of flat terrain, finally enter the Udawalawe National Park, home to hundreds of Sri Lankan Elephants and other wild animals.

    A true jungle experience with well planned safaris and knowledgeable staff, the national park helps you assimilate the wildlife at close quarters.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Distance cycled: ~ 60km / 36mi*

  7. Day 7: Tangalle

    Click here to expand

    Go on an early morning safari in Udawalawe in search of Elephant herds. And, then off to Tangalle, following one of the irrigation canals flowing towards the south. Time for an infusion of something different in the topography – bananas! The crisp air of the countryside and the rural setting is perfect to understand and enjoy the interiors of the country. As we near to Tangalle, is when we hit the main road. And that’s when the warm clammy seaside air hits you, sometimes heavy with the weight of the smell of fish. If we stick to timing, there will be no better way to spend the evening than to see the sun descending into the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Sri Lanka.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Distance cycled: ~ 60km / 36mi*

  8. Day 8: Colombo Airport

    Click here to expand

    Ride to Galle through coastal and interior trails. Post-lunch, explore Galle Fort on foot. Erstwhile Gimhathiththa, the town is rife with Dutch and Portuguese architectural remnants, museums, cathedrals and a beautiful coastline to enjoy the sunny beaches.

    Extend at Galle/Tangalle and spend the days at leisure or transport to the Colombo International Airport for your onward journey.

    Meals: Breakfast
    Distance cycled: ~ 50km / 39mi*
