Tour in brief 

Start your tour from a pre-agreed place around the Jaffna city. Get in your ride and visit the Keerimalai, an old holy spring, but not be confused with a hot water spring. After that, ride through the Jaffna-Kayts Road to see prawn and crab farms and fish hubs which is a unique experience. Grab something to eat from 11 to Eleven Pizza and have an ice cream on the way. See the ancient Naguleswaram Hindu temple, Karainagar Island, Casuarina Beach and also the 15th century relics of the last Tamil ruler, King Sangiliyan, which cannot be forgotten.


Personal gear for warm, windy or rainy conditions should be carried by clients. Sunscreen is recommended.


Jaffna is the 12th largest and the capital city of the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. Known for rich cultural heritage and natural beauty, Jaffna's suburb Nallur served as the capital of the four-century-long medieval Jaffna kingdom. Prior to the Sri Lankan civil war, it was Sri Lanka's second most populated city after the commercial capital Colombo. Since the end of civil war in 2009, refugees and internally displaced people have started to return to their homes and government and private sector reconstruction has begun. Jaffna is home to many historical sites such as the popular Jaffna Library that was burnt down and rebuilt and the Jaffna fort rebuilt during the Dutch colonial period.
