Our roaming biker still avidly ventures far and wide to discover sublime routes and share his stories – of which he has quite a stock.

The essence of Sri Lanka for time-poor bikers seeking a trip of amazing variety. Explorers hungry for strong sensations and exotic flavours, you’ll head off on an island treasure trail – a varied itinerary that showcases the country’s terrific cultural and natural mosaic. After a sustained daily tempo, you’ll be rewarded by a more sedate finale, near the beach and fort in Galle. This motorbike trip is the perfect introduction for long-haul adventurers who’ll then set their sights on other Asian destinations.

The riders' opinions

Matthew
Great staff/tour personnel

“Firstly, the airport experience on arrival was a little disjointed but of no great consequence. From thereon in wonderful people to deal with and our tour leader/support staff were excellent. The bikes were in good mechanical condition and we were fortunate that our group had a good skill set as there were some challenging roads. Notwithstanding though this trip would be suitable for most capable riders. No alcohol in the high altitudes is recommended. A very professional outfit all round.”

Vintage Rides SrI Lanka

“I was born in Sri Lanka but I was taken to parts I didn't know existed. Excellent knowledge of which routes to take to avoid the sometimes hellish traffic. The bikes were great fun : this is despite me being 125 kilos on a 350 - impressed ! They seem to be constantly reviewing their hotels which can only mean a better experience I would recommend this company to my biking friends”

GregoryEvans
Wonderful experience with great company

“My group of 12 friends had a wonderful experience riding in the Himalayas with Vintage Rides. From the fantastic Pierrey our tour guide to the work done by the backroom staff to ensure this unique experience went without a hitch, this a very experienced and highly recommended company to put your trust in for such a journey. Will definitely use them again at some time in the future - perhaps Mongolia.”
