What to expect

This bike tour starts at Bediwewa which is situated close to Polonnaruwa ancient capital. We continue the ride along a nearby village where you will have the chance to mingle with the local farming community. Heart of the rice cultivation and the granary of the island, this is an ideal tour to learn more about rice cultivation and the ancient traditions that surround it.

Next, a short break while chilling out tasting the exotic coconut juice at a local family. The bike tour will continue among a beautiful canal with the shades of Arjuna trees. The canal plays a crucial role for the village tanks and the thousands of agricultural lands including rice paddies. This area is also a must-see for all birdwatchers passionate.

As we move further, you will get a hint of the flavor of the unspoiled authentic rural life. This is a very quiet road on flat terrain with plenty of tropical trees. A local family will be waiting at the end of the canal bike tour to cook their delicious and authentic rice and curry dishes. They will teach you how to make a nice lentil curry with a nice balance of all the spices. After lunch, we reach Girithale lake where the tour ends. Before you hop on the vehicle enjoy a nice chilled Arrack cocktail served by the cycling team.
