Half-Day Lagoon and Village Cycling Tour in Galle
$20.00
Overview
Head off the beaten track on this 3-hour tour of Galle with an easy 7.5-mile (12-km) bike ride, led by a local guide. Pedal at your own pace down mostly dirt and gravel tracks past lagoons, mangroves and tropical palms. Meet locals on a village tour and visit a Buddhist temple built in the 18th century. Witness local industries including crab catching and rope making; learn about local flora and fauna; and stop by a coconut factory for a refreshment.
What to Expect

Start your tour at 8:30am for Morning Departure or 2:30 pm for Afternoon Departure.

After a short briefing, you start tour with our experienced English-speaking local guide who takes you through small dirt roads to a small local village to lagoon and mangroves. Along the way you can ask your local guide about the plants, animals, culture or anything about this country. 
During this tour, you will also experience the local biodiversity in Sri Lanka- mangrove forest, topical palms, ferns and lots of coconut trees. Throughout this journey you will pass through lush green paddy fields, a big part of people's life here in south Sri Lanka. After cycling around the lagoon you will visit a traditional coconut factory witnessing the coconuts being soaked and sorted and made into rope. A short journey on the main road and a stop for a refreshing king coconut winds down your tour before you head back to final destination.
