Mountain Biking is one of the best ways to explore the hill country and its endless jaw dropping views. Chose between day excursion and longer expeditions. Again, the bikes are excellent quality and are scrupulously maintained and serviced. The trails are lead by experienced bikers who have researched and developed the routes over time. Select your own degree of difficulty and intensity to suit the needs of your party. It is possible to take in many of the sites of the hill country by bike. You could ride between the towns of Bandarawela, Badulla, Haputale and Ella - the leaders also have expert knowledge of the available routes to ensure you spend as little time as possible on the main roads.
