Lake Victoria Island Cycling Tour from Kampala

Only a 30-minute boat ride away from busy Kampala lies a magical place without traffic, fumes and hustler’s hassle. The area offers some of Uganda’s best mountain bike trails which will lead you through lovely villages and beautiful nature. There are some nice climbs and the track will contain a mix of wide gravel fire roads and single tracks. Experience encounters with the friendly locals and discover the real Uganda.

The ride is around 20km long, goes at an easy pace and is suitable for beginners. Our guides know the area very well and can adjust the route according to your skill and fitness level. On the way we will stop for some delicious Ugandan snacks before we will settle down for drinks on the beach of Lake Victoria at our final destination.
