INTRODUCTION
Sri Lanka is an island of infinite variety and is blessed with almost everything a visitor would like to experience.

The landscape varies from lush tropical lowland, flat farming areas, dramatically beautiful mountain country with water falls & mist covered tea plantations, rivers, jungles, forests & miles of unspoiled beaches.

The history of the country dates back more than 2000 years and is perfectly documented in the master pieces of architecture found in the ancient cities of Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya & Kandy.

Due to it's compact size, variety of landscape and easy accessibility of places of interest, Sri Lanka is an ideal destination for a Cycling Tour. The longer distances are usually done by motor vehicle and most sightseeing on the short excursion will be done leisurely on cycles. Throughout the tour back up vehicles are provided to carry passengers, cycles & luggage.
The Cycling Tour planned covers major places of interest in the country.
