Cycling in the Galle Countryside

One of the best experiences in Galle, if not in all of Sri Lanka, is to head off into the countryside around the town. You will meander through paddy fields, little villages and cinnamon plantations. Most importantly, you will witness the local way of life and taking your time just to enjoy the serenity of it all. The total bike ride can either be an easy-going 12kms or a longer 26kms. The bikes we use are of excellent quality. Helmets and a private guide to show you the way.
