Full description

Uncover the beauty of the Sri Lankan countryside on this biking tour through the countryside of Bentota. Pass through villages and see how local toddy trappers harvest sap from the flowers in coconut trees.

Meet your cycling guide in your hotel lobby in Bentota, Beruwala, or Aluthgama. Hope on a well-maintained mountain bike and start your exciting cycling tour through the countryside of Bentota. Feel safe knowing that a support car with first aid is standing by.

Stop to watch a toddy trapper collect sap from the flowers growing in the canopy of coconut trees. Admire the worker's skill in navigating this task that is made dangerous by the use of weather-worn ropes, slippery trunks, and unexpected winds.

Revitalize yourself with water, a soft drink, or a coconut drink and some delicious biscuits before continuing through fragrant cinnamon gardens to a small lagoon. Enjoy some light refreshments on the shores of the lagoon.
