Heritage Tour

You will achieve more memories of historical places in Sri Lanka by this tour. We plan to give you an opportunity to visit many ancient cities of pre-digital ages.

Day 1 : Negombo

Ayubowan, welcome to Sri Lanka! Upon touching down at Bandaranayake international airport your driver will be waiting to transfer to your beach hotel in Negombo so you can enjoy a relaxing evening by the sea.

Day 02 Kalpitiya

Leaving the churches and canals of Negombo we ride north up the coast to beautiful Kalpitiya, one of the newly-discovered tourist areas of Sri Lanka. Situated 140km north of Negombo, the Kalpitiya peninsula sits between Puttalam lagoon and the Indian Ocean. It is a marine sanctuary with a diversity of habitats including bar reefs, flat coastal plains, saltpans, mangrove swamps, salt marshes and vast sand dune beaches. It was a famous trading hub from the Portuguese era. We spend the night in Kalpitiya

Day 03 Anuradhapura

After a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast we ride south and inland to Anuradhapura, the first established kingdom in ancient Sri Lanka. Founded by King Pandukabhaya in 377 BC, Anuradhapura has a wealth of historic and Buddhist sites including giant brick dagobas, ancient palaces, huge lakes and sacred Bo Tree. Riding south-east we encounter the carved stone Aukana Buddha statue – the tallest ancient Buddha statue in Sri Lanka. We spend the Night at Anuradhapura Ancient City./p>

Day 4 Polonnaruwa

Stretching over rolling grassland, Polonnaruwa’s ruined palaces and dagobas provide a fascinating insight into a past reign of glory. Dating to the 11thcentury, Polonnaruwa replaced Anuradhapura as Sri Lanka’s ruling city after a devastating invasion by invaders from south India. It reached its height in the 12th century. The most famous of Polonnaruwa’s rulers, King Parakramabahu1, created the vast ParakramaSamudra (Sea of Parakrama) which remains one of the finest examples of Sri Lanka’s skill at water management. We stay over night at Polonnaruwa Ancient city

Day 5 Kandy

Riding south we pass through the mysterious Knuckles mountain range before arriving for the night in the city of Kandy. The second-largest city in Sri Lanka after Colombo, Kandy is famous for its Royal Botanical Gardens and the Temple of the Tooth. Situated in a beautiful highland region of tea plantations, Kandy was capital city of the last remaining independent kingdom of Sri Lanka after the coastal regions were conquered by the Portuguese, Dutch and British respectively. It was capital city from 1592 until 1815 when it at last capitulated to the British. The famous Royal Botanical Gardens were Lord Mountbatten’s headquarters during the Second World War

Day 6 Negombo / Departure

After breakfast we prepare for the last day ride of our wonderful journey. Today's highlights include riding through rubber, pineapple and spice plantations. After reaching Negombo we drive to Sha Lanka tour base & return the bikes & transfer you to your hotel on the beach.
