Rafting & Canoeing


Rafting in Sri Lanka

Rafting is based in the hill country and the best rivers descend from Adam’s Peak, a 2,243m mountain which is the mythological place where Adam set foot on earth. Rafting options range from a one-hour ride in the Kelani River at Kitulgala, an ideal spot for beginners, to the “experienced paddlers only” rivers of Kotmale, Mahaweli and Kalu Ganga. Rafting mixes the ups and downs of rapids with calm sections perfect for looking at the tea and rubber plantations or mountains covered in jungle rainforest. In one section all you can hear is the pounding water rushing through the rapids and the cry of the guide’s instructions. In the next only the chirping birds break the silence. Around the next corner village women do their washing and giggle when you jump out of the raft to cool off. It’s easy to lose yourself in thought at the remoteness of the river and the community. But the next set of rapids quickly concentrate them as, helmet and paddle at the ready, you are pushed through the section in a whir of excitement. Look back to see what you’ve accomplished but be careful : the jungle views may sweep you away.

Canoeing in Sri Lanka

Paddling a canoe can be the most practical way to discover Sri Lanka’s country rivers, jungles, swamps, lagoons and canals. For jungle river canoeing there is a rewarding journey from the Sinharaja Forest Reserve to the coastal town of Kalutara. It can be done as a day or an overnight trip and is good for people who have never canoed before but are looking to experience wilderness and adventure. Small jungle river tours and riverbank camping are also offered on the Bo-path Ella waterfalls to Kaluganaga trip. The lagoon at Bentota is a calm place to paddle in one or two-person canoes. The more adventurous can pass under the Galle Road bridge and head upstream in search of water monitors, mangroves and maybe crocodiles.
