a village ride

A journey with a difference. Embark on a voyage of discovery by boat and bike in Sri Lanka’s southern countryside, as your local host takes you along the rural waterways and back roads to discover a side of Galle most tourists don’t get to see.

The experience begins with a cruise along river banks fringed by local villages, rubber and cinnamon plantations looking out for the intriguing bird and reptile life, which your host can tell you more about.  Back on terra firma, your next leg is by bike, a beautiful 9 km ride through the region’s heart, picturesque paddy fields, villages, hamlets and markets.  Your final stop is a traditional mud hut and the reward of a revitalising herbal tea, and fresh Sri Lankan hoppers straight from the fire.  It is also possible to add a full traditional lunch onto this experience – well earned at the end of your bike ride!
