The adventure seeker is spoilt for choice in Sri Lanka. The thrills on offer are endless and range along the spectrum – from an enjoyable day of golf or cricket to the adrenaline rush of wave riding or paragliding. The waterfalls in the hill country provide ample kayaking and canoeing opportunities whilst the great Mahaweli River – Sri Lanka’s longest – provide ample rapids for those seeking the adrenaline rush of white water rafting. Camping and trekking in the Central Highlands is of the most earthy, real experiences for those who are looking to go back to nature. Backpacking and cycling are great ways to discover this mysterious island and allow for travellers to feel, taste and hear Sri Lanka, untainted. Hot Air Ballooning above Sigiriya or over the cultural triangle gives an ethereal perspective to the kingdoms of yore.
