Adventure activities in Sri Lanka

Rich with breathtaking scenic views of stunning landscapes, multiple terrain types, lush green mountains, soaring waterfalls, tea fields, and daring jungles surrounded by the golden coast of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka undoubtedly is a paradise of both worlds; adventure and bliss! So, if you are looking forward to experiencing an adrenaline rush while enjoying a spectacular view, you must give these adventures a try.

Zoom above and through the green hills of flora and fauna, ride through muddy dirt tracks amid tea fields, or fly above the blue ocean shimmering bright, is only a little sneak peek at what you can enjoy on this teardrop island. Sounds interesting? Sri Lanka has got more.


Test your bravery by sliding on a zipline stretching half a kilometer at an 80 kmph speed through the stunning green mountains and valleys of one of Sri Lanka’s most beautiful little towns, Ella. As you zoom through the sun-soaked exuberant green mountains, hanging on cables that make you feel the height of the flight, while the breeze brush through your face at a record high speed, remember to take it all in, the thrill, the joy, and the peace, all at the same time. All the while sharing the fun with a loved one who can fly side by side with you on this double zip line, “Flying Ravana Mega Zipline”.
Our advice; scream as much as you want, but do not close your eyes. Because the abundance of natural beauty you will be soaring through is just too much to miss!
Intrigued? Then, don’t forget to try out the "Flying Ravana Mega Zipline" in Ella while you are in Sri Lanka. It is an experience that is one of its kind.

ATV Rides

Don’t mind getting a little muddy and dirty? Then, driving an ATV on an off-road track in Ella with steep hills and slippery slopes amidst tea estates and jungle stretches is an adventure tailor-made for you! The lesser-visited viewpoint of the Ella Gap, the gap between the stunning mountains blanketed with shades of green, is a treasure reserved for the bold ones who opt for an ATV ride on the challenging tracks of Ella.


We kept the best for the last. Exploring the island from above by flying over the jaw-dropping views of scenic palm-fringed beaches or over lush green valleys and mountain peaks, depending on where on the island you gain altitude, has to be the best way to feel the thrill of adventure. The adventure-junkie in you can lift a couple of thousand feet away from the ground and glide freely on an ultra-lightweight parachute or on a paramotor with an experienced instructor/pilot who will ensure you enjoy a safe flight of bird's-eye view of Sri Lanka. These air sports adventures that can be equally enjoyed by both experienced and armature thrill-seekers are available to experience in the southern coastal areas of Benthota or the central highlands of Nuwara Eliya.

Whether you are looking for adventure in the air or on the ground, you will find Sri Lanka to be a real treat!
