Colombo Cycling Tour

Colombo, the commercial capital of Sri Lanka, is truly a unique city as it is home to the highest concentration of the country’s varied mixture of cultures and communities. With ancient Arab traders, the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British landing on the shores of Ceylon, it is not surprising to observe a wealth of these influences being very evident even in modern day Colombo.
Cycling around Colombo is the alternative way to seeing this incrediblecity with all it’s quirks. Different to being cocooned in a windowed vehicle, Eco Team offer you the chance to explore Colombo and view the city in a very different light to the majority of visitors. Take in the sights, sounds and smells of this vibrant city with an experienced Guide who will share with you the insider’s knowledge…and many things you won’t read in any guide book!

Polonnaruwa Cycling tour

Polonnaruwa is one of Sri Lanka 's ancient capital cities (and part of the famous 'Cultural Triangle'). Although King Vijayabahu 1 was the first to claim the city as his capital, it was King Parakramabahu who made it what it is today, with its massive buildings, ornate parks and the 'pièce de resistance' - a 2500 hectare tank called 'Parakrama Samudra' (' Sea of Parakrama ').
The city itself is divided into new and old town with the impressively preserved ruins split into five main areas, including 'The Quadrangle' (a.k.a. 'Terrace of the Tooth Relic'), the Northern City group and the Rest House group (with the royal palace ruins of 'Nissanka Malla').
