Your Destination

Sri Lanka is a lush, tropical island paradise, known to ancient Greek mariners as Taprobane. Arab traders called it Serendib – hence the word "serendipity", meaning discovery by happy accident. It was famously described by Marco Polo as "undoubtedly the finest island of its size in the world". With fabulously flavoursome food & a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, this country promises to be one of your best-loved destinations.

This is an environmentally diverse country, with nine World Heritage Sites (the oldest dating back to the 3rd Century BC), 86 species of mammals (including elephants and leopards), more than 400 bird species, a colorful array of flowering plants and trees, a Hill Country famous for tea, 14 National Parks and an Indian Ocean coastline boasting palm-fringed and sandy tropical beaches.

Your Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Sri Lanka
You will be welcomed by your driver upon arrival in Colombo Airport & then driven to your hotel in Negombo where you can unwind after your long flight (approx. travel time: 1 hour).

Overnight in Negombo with breakfast & dinner included.

Day 2: Negombo - Anuradhapura 
After breakfast, depart for Anuradhapura (approx. travel time: 3 hours 45 minutes). Explore Sri Lanka's first capital and undoubtedly the grandest city of ancient Sri Lanka...home to two World Heritage sites! You can admire a tree which is more than 2200 years, making it the world's oldest living tree! There are also numerous relics as well as multiple carved and etched monuments to explore.

Overnight in Negombo with breakfast & dinner included.
Day 3: Anuradhapura - Minneriya National Park - Dambulla
After breakfast, you will be transferred to Minneriya National Park (approx. travel time: 1 hour 15 minutes) for a game drive through 8,890 hectares of mixed evergreen forest and scrub areas in search of favourites such as sambar deer, leopards and elephants.

The central feature of the park is the ancient Minneriya Tank which was built in 3 rd century AD by King Mahasena. This tank is an incredible place to observe the elephants who come to bathe and graze, as well as the huge flocks of birds (cormorants and painted storks to name a few) that come to fish in the shallow waters. Afterwards, proceed to Dambulla (approx. travel time: 35 minutes).

Overnight in Dambulla with breakfast & dinner included.
Day 4: Dambulla - Sigiriya - Polonnaruwa - Dambulla
Head for Sigiriya (approx. travel time: 30 minutes). Known as the 8th wonder of the world, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was a royal citadel for more than 18 years. Discover its famous frescoes in a sheltered pocket, approached by a spiral stairway...just one of the mesmerising sites that await you.

Afterwards, you will be transferred to Polonnaruwa (apprx. travel time: 1 hour 20 minutes). Visit this ancient city, including the remains that have been cleared from the rainforest. The medieval capital of Ceylon, in the romantic lake of Parakrama, the kings of Ceylon settled here in the 11th century after abandoning Anuradhapura. Here you'll discover beautiful statues of Reclining and standing Buddha.

Return back to your hotel (approx.travel time:  1 hour 20 minutes).

Overnight in Dambulla with breakfast & dinner included.
Day 5: Dambulla - Matale - Kandy
After breakfast, spend some time exploring Dambulla's rock monastery where caves have been carved into a huge block of granite perched at over 160m altitude. The set includes five rock temples: the walls of the first were covered with gold leaf, which earned it the nickname "the golden rock". 

These five caves are home to hundreds of Buddha statues, as well as frescoes, which cover about 1,800 square meters, depicting effigies or episodes of Buddha's life. 

Afterwards, you will continue to Matale (approx. travel time: 1 hour) and visit a spice garden in Matale at the gateway to the old capital of Kandy. Long before tea, Sri Lanka was famous for its spices and especially for its cinnamon trees that gave its name to one of Colombo's beautiful neighbourhoods: the Cinnamon Gardens. 

Resume your journey and arrive in Kandy in the afternoon (approx. travel time: 1 hour), visiting a Batik Factory & the Gem Museum.

Overnight at Kandy with breakfast & dinner included.
Day 6: Kandy
After breakfast, visit the botanical gardens of Peradeniya, in the suburbs of Kandy. These gardens are the largest in Sri Lanka and surely among the most beautiful in the world, this impressive garden is home to more than 60 hectares of hundreds of species including majestic fig trees whose branches extend on about 2500 m ².

Return to the main city of Kandy where you will have time for a walk along the lake. Enjoy a traditional Sri Lankan Dancing show at the end of the day. 

Overnight in Kandy with breakfast & dinner included.

No, the real joy of Kandy is the illusion that – at least in spirit – a great kingdom survives. Kandyans are always dressing up in their 30ft cummerbunds, and every night there’s a display of drummers in silver armour.

Day 7: Kandy - Nuwara Eliya - Ella
After breakfast, proceed to Nuwara Eliya and its expansive tea plantations as far as the eye can see (approx. travel time: 2 hours 20 minutes). After a stop at Ramboda Falls, your road will continue towards Nuwara Eliya through a sumptuous mountain landscape.
