3 day escorted tour itinerary

Kandy City Cycling Tour

Quaint Villages and the Cultural Capital

Experience the beauty that Sri Lanka's cultural capital has to offer. From the rolling hills of the tea plantations to the music and performance of a traditional show, Kandy is in no short supply of wonder and entertainment and we think experiencing these stunning sites is best done by bike. Get up close to nature and stop off for a chat with the locals. To start your tour from Colombo it is a short three hour drive from the airport to this beautiful city nestled in the heart of the island. Why not make the most of your time inland and head down to Nuwara Eliya for a look into colonial Sri Lanka.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Cycle the beautiful back routes and countryside of Kandy
  • Experience Sri Lanka's Cultural Capital
  • Visit the Temple of the Tooth - one of the most sacred Buddhist sites
