An Action-Packed Adventure

Back Back

Conquer two of Sri Lanka’s canyons, concealed in the foothills around Kithulgala, and try a range of other exhilarating outdoor pursuits during this three-night action-packed adventure. This experience is run by Borderlands, a long-standing adventure activities company that meets international safety standards. Stay in a rustic yet comfortable lodge in the main Borderlands campsite then spend two nights camping in a remote location along the Kelani river.

Experience Overview

Day 1: Kick off this three-night adventure with a white-knuckle white-water rafting experience on the grade 2 and grade 3 rapids of the Kelani river. You will be given a full briefing and all necessary safety equipment by the experienced guides at Borderlands. Afterwards, return to camp for a relaxed evening with dinner by the bonfire and a restful night in your open-sided room. Day 2: This morning, drive to the first canyon in a 4x4, enjoying the spectacular scenery en route. After another safety briefing and once you’re all kitted out, get stuck in: enjoy exhilarating natural water slides; jump or zipline between the sections, and climb and abseil on the rocks. In the middle of it all, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch in your beautiful surroundings. Tonight, you have the choice of heading back to base camp or staying in a tent along the river – we recommend doing the latter. Day 3: Begin with a hike to your next canyon, a moderately challenging trek which, after an initial steep climb, takes you through villages, forest and plantations. Your canyoning adventure today is largely abseiling, and the views are extraordinary. Follow this with a late lunch at camp, and spend the rest of the day at leisure. Day 4: Depart after breakfast.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
