Tour in brief

  • Victoria Lake was built by the British around 1980 by damming the longest river in Sri Lanka. It produces electricity for the whole country and diverts water for irrigation to the dry zone.
  • Although swimming in this picturesque lake is the main activity, you can also try your luck at fishing with rods from the lake's edge - as the locals do. Walking through enchanting forests and bustling villages, riding a local bus or tuk tuk, make this an unforgettable experience.


  • Swimming is at your own risk - a high level of swimming competency is required

  • Clients should bring suitable clothing for warm, windy and rainy conditions

  • Items such as insect repellent and sun lotion are recommended

  • Remember to wear lightweight clothes and shoes / boots
