A Village Ride


Enjoy a scenic and immersive tour through the beautiful countryside surrounding Galle. Your journey will take you down the river by boat and then by bike across the paddies, ending with some revitalizing tea and fresh hoppers.

Why you will love it

  • Experience the natural beauty, local life and wildlife of rural Galle
  • Explore by boat and bike with your local naturalist host before a break for hoppers
  • Interact and witness the daily routine of the villagers, in contrast to the city dwellers in Galle.

What you will experience

Explore Sri Lanka’s countryside in this exhilarating journey first through the rural waterways in a boat and then via a bike through the region’s heart.

Start the tour with a boat ride. Sit back, and enjoy the ride as you pass along river banks, through canals, under bridges and by local village hamlets. Witness verdant green paddy fields, sun-dappled mangrove river banks, villagers bathing and children playing. An abundance of wildlife and learn about the endemic species only found in Sri Lanka.

Hop on to your bike for a 9km haul in your next leg of the experience. Explore the route through the villages and paddy fields before you stop at the traditional mud hut. Enjoy some revitalising herbal tea, and fresh Sri Lankan hoppers straight from the fire.  Let us know if you also want to add a traditional lunch.
