Frequently Asked Questions

    • So, why is Sri Lanka so amazing?

      Short answer: come and find out for yourself. Long answer: it’s sort of like India, without the madness and crowds. It’s still mad, and there are still crowds, but not quite on the same scale. It’s also got a great cultural legacy from trade and immigration: Indian, Tamil, English, Portuguese, Dutch. Pretty much every seafaring culture has touched the island at some point, which means the food is seriously good.

    • What are the roads like in Sri Lanka?

      Sri Lanka has a good road network linking all the major cities, towns and interesting places. But don’t go expecting pristine tarmac everywhere you ride. Some of the rural roads in particular can get pretty wild and bumpy.

    • Do I need to get vaccinated?

      This is completely up to you, but generally it’s a good idea to be up-to-date with standard vaccinations like Tetanus, Hap A and Polio. Other jabs to consider are Tuberculosis, Meningitis and Typhoid. Anti-malaria meds might also be a good idea. If in doubt, check with your GP.

    • What’s the weather like?

      If you like your weather warm, you’ll love Sri Lanka. Warmth is kind of its thing. Even when it’s pouring with rain. There are plenty of more in-depth weather guides online, but generally the south-west monsoon brings rain to the western, southern and central regions from May to July, while the north-eastern monsoon is from December to January. Expect anything from 23 to 30 degrees Celsius.

    • What languages are spoken in Sri Lanka?

      Sinhala, Tamil and English are spoken throughout Sri Lanka, although in remote villages the English-speakers might be few and far between. You’ve brushed up on your Sinhala, right?

    • Will there be internet connection throughout?

      All our hotels will have internet connection, but the campsites not so much (it’s really hard to train monkeys to operate the WiFi). If you’ve booked your own accommodation, you’ll have to check with them.

    • Is it expensive in Sri Lanka?

      Not really. Some luxuries can be a little pricey (hence the ‘luxury’ bit), but for the most part it’s super reasonable. Lunch might be a few dollars and beers are generally under a buck.

    • Can the route change?

      We try to stick to the original route and accommodation as much as possible, but they can be subject to change from time to time.

    • Who needs a visa to Sri Lanka?

      Ah visas, our old nemesis. You can find out the full list, and how to apply: http://www.eta.gov.lk/slvisa/

    • Do I need to bring my own camping gear?

      Nope. We’ll provide the sleeping bags and the marshmallows as necessary. However it might be good to bring a torch.
