Day 1:

Arrive in the early afternoon. Get to know the guides and then set out on a white-knuckle white-water rafting ride down the grade 2-3 rapids of the Kelani River. Afterwards, settle down with a refreshing drink and relive the experience over dinner. The accommodation for the first night is an open-sided wooden cabin overlooking the river.

Day 2:

Time to traverse your first canyon. Drive to the start point in a 4x4, then don your gear, listen to the safety briefing and get started! A day of natural water slides, climbing and jumping between rocks – or ziplining if you prefer – and abseiling, with a picnic lunch in the middle. You can return to the Borderlands site afterwards, but we recommend camping under the stars instead and having dinner round a roaring bonfire. Your guides will set up camp for you and ensure that you have everything you need.

Day 3:

Start the day with a fairly challenging hike to your next canyon. After an initial steep climb, the path becomes more even, winding through jungle, plantations and villages. Upon arrival at the canyon, enjoy a session of abseiling, taking in the glorious views around you. Head back to camp in time for a late lunch and then enjoy an afternoon at leisure.

Day 4:

Begin your day with breakfast to the sound of birds, then depart to your next destination.
