• Canoeing / Kayaking

Exploring the waterways
Go canoeing and kayaking in the most beautiful rivers and lakes of Sri Lanka!

Sri Lanka may be a small of an island, but it contains no less than 103 rivers and numerous lagoons, lakes, man-made reservoirs, and interconnected canals - all of which provide unique surroundings for canoeing and kayaking.

Kalu Ganga (‘Black River’) offers a perfect setting for long distances and several day canoeing trips.  The 1 day option takes you from Ratnapura to Ellagawa, with a total distance of about 33 km and a lunch break at Kurugammodara. The 2 days 1 night option is a longer, and more strenuous trip with close to 90 km as the total distance. The trip takes you from the mountainous Ratnapura to the coastal Kalutara, with a stop for the night at Wagawatta. The 3 days 2 nights option, reserved for the experienced canoeists, goes from Ratnapura to Kalutara stopping at Kiriella and Anguruwatota. Along the way, your accommodation will be arranged at Eco Team’s fully serviced canoeing campsites in the most beautiful settings by the river.

Set among picturesque mountains, Belihuloya provides a different kind of canoeing experience in the man-made Samanalawewa Reservoir, that is home to numerous species of birds and butterflies. In Belihuloya, canoeing is combined with camping at the River Garden Resort or Kinchigune Lodge, and a nature trail through forests, paddy fields, and small villages that will give you a glimpse of Sri Lankan rural life.

We provide you with experienced guides and instructors and high-quality equipment, including life jackets and helmets. While we take all the precautions to ensure the safety of our guests, we remind you to to heed the advice of the guides/instructors at all times.
