Kayaking and Canoeing in Sri Lanka

Kayaking and Canoeing

With 103 rivers and a wealth of swamps, lagoons and interconnected old canals, Sri Lanka provides no end of opportunities to try out Kayaking / canoeing, which are a different and relaxing mode of transportation. Sri Lanka 's famous KALU GANGA (aka Black River) flows from the heart of the island down to the west coast town of Kalutara where it finally meets the Indian Ocean . During a leisurely canoe trip down this beautiful river, canoeists can marvel at ever-changing landscapes and a fascinating variety of flora and fauna. For an alternative to river canoeing, head to one of the country's many vast tanks and reservoirs! The calm waters of the Samanalawewa reservoir in Sri Lanka's Sabaragamuwa province (easily accessible from BELIHULOYA ) provide an ideal setting for this slow-paced activity, and with the area's prolific birdlife and breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, there's no end of things to see as you paddle.
