Water Rafting
This activity is great fun for first-timers and experts alike, with a wide range and grading of rapids on some of Sri Lanka 's more turbulent waters such as the Kelani river. Kitulgala in the hill country, southwest of Kandy provides an ideal base from which many white water rafting tours take place. Tours can be arranged for anything from 1 hour to a half-day including lunch.

Elephant Riding
The Elephant that was the limousine, Bulldozer, War Tank, Status Symbol, Wealth Asset and Domestic pet in the past is today an element that adds color to pageants or the gentle Giant that gives pleasure rides.
The Elephant Safari has become a highlight event to tourist for its excitement and adventure or even for the "Chance of a Life Time" of riding an Elephant.
The Elephant Safari is a ride on an Elephant with safely secured seat that takes around two hours. The ride takes you on a bund of an ancient lake built for irrigation then through the jungle and even crosses a part of the lake where you could get your feet wet whilst seated on Elephant Back. This is fun never to be missed when in Sri Lanka.

Boat Riding
Boat riding on rivers is another interesting activity that is becoming more and more popular as in addition to boating in the sea. Boat cruise allow you to enjoy the scenery of river banks as well as the life style of rural settlers, the farther you go upstream the better it gets.

Wind Surfing

East coast is the place when you come for surfing, between May and September is the period when the wind is at its strongest. Arugam Bay on the east coast is, in particular, the Sri Lanka's best beach for surfing especially the surfing season (between April and September) when the town and the beach get the most crowded. Some beaches, however, in the southwestern coast such as Hikkaduwa are also popular for good surfs; in fact, Hikkaduwa is a long time favorite for international surfers. Surfing gears such as surfboards, boogie boards, and wittiest can be hired in the shops beside the beaches.

Cultural Dance
Sri Lanka's famous Kandyan dance and kolam (masked dance-drama) Have their origins in South India, but have developed a uniquely local character. The devil dancing of the low country almost certainly predator Buddhism.

Kandy Perahera

A highlight among these is the Kandy Esala Perahara, Which is held in the full-moon month of Esala (July/August). This 10-day event builds up to a crescendo of dancing

Night Life

Night Life in Sri Lanka is quite lackluster. Still, those who are addicted to it are not totally at bay. Colombo has some good bars, casinos, pubs, lounges and night clubs which can steal your night away. But most of these are not all night long affairs. They start at around 20:00 hrs and close down at 3’o clock in the dead of the night.
