Description

Your guide picks you up and whisks you down the coast to Galle Fort, which stands tall above the shimmering sea. Learn how the fort was built by the Portuguese, conquered by the Dutch, and eventually reconstructed by the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka. Stroll past the remnants of colonial rule and take note of how the area has been transformed into a symbol of Sri Lanka's complex architectural history.

After Galle, you stop in the town of Ambalangoda at a mask factory that specializes in creating traditional face coverings. As you watch craftspeople carve and dye these marvelous masks, learn all about the special role they have played in local culture for centuries. Enjoy a delectable meal at the seaside Gangabada Asiriya Restaurant.

Lunch After your guide takes you to the Madu Ganga River, a complex wetland that features mangrove islets and more than 240 species of animals. Complete your action-packed day with a leisurely ride back up the coast.
