Kayaking and Canoeing Tours in Kalu Ganga - Sri Lanka
The KALU GANGA is a relaxing eco tourism destination and a relatively slow flowing river for most of the way, so there is no need for any specialist canoeing skills. Along the route you will be able to see many vegetation types and changing landscapes of Sri Lanka. Just passing the populated Ratnapura town area, the riverbank environment becomes more scenic and peaceful, with lonely sand collectors' houses surrounded by thick vegetation and palm trees! During most of the ride the only noises you will hear are the birds' calls and the sound of your paddle dipping into the calm water. For a bit more adventure, it is possible to continue on down the river where you will negotiate some basic rapids (full training will be given).
The journey finishes at the west coast town of Kalutara which is famous for its impressive 'Gangatilaka Vihara' (Buddhist shrine), fine basketware and the best mangosteens in Sri Lanka !
The ECO TEAM CANOEING CAMP is located right next to the river - an ideal place to enjoy a refreshing river bath after a day of canoeing.  Forget any ideas about cramped tents and sitting on the ground for mealtimes - this is camping in style!  The site is set up prior to your arrival, with everything from the kitchen sink, chairs and tables, toilets, showers and cold beer being transported in.  In the evening you can enjoy a hearty barbecue meal in a magical setting - the whole area is lit up with traditional flame torches and a roaring campfire. So sit back, relax and let our experienced staff cater to your every need.
