Carefully selected by our experts especially for you

Your Holiday

Your Destination

With 8 Unesco World Heritage Sites to be found on such a small area of land and a 2,000 year old culture, Sri Lanka is as fascinating as it is beautiful. A destination that is often skipped by many a traveller on their trips to India or Asia, Sri Lanka remains one of the Indo-Asian best kept secrets. Visit its ancient sites and marvel over its legendary temples, or see the sacred home of the world’s oldest living tree, Anuradhapura.

Take a safari tour in one of Sri Lanka’s national parks to encounter elephants, leopards, water buffaloes, and exotic birds, or spend the day relaxing on the dazzlingly white, often untrod, beaches. Try your hand at a little surfing or retreat up into the Sri Lankan hills to experience a more temperate climate and the lavish greenery of the tea plantations. In addition, you can even trek through the rainforests with an experienced guide or just take in the breathtaking vistas on a spectacular train ride. With fabulously flavoursome food and a vast array of culturally rich experiences to delve into, Sri Lanka promises to be one of your best-loved travel destinations, where the charm of the people will simply enchant you.

Your Itineraries

2-Night Tour

Day 1: Arrival in Colombo - Kandy (Dinner Included)
Upon arrival in Colombo, you will be met by your driver and transferred to Kandy. Upon arrival in Kandy, you'll check in to your hotel and enjoy an afternoon city tour. Kandy, referred to as the hill capital, houses the sacred Temple of the Tooth, where the tooth of Buddha is kept. From the ancient monuments, to the delightful jumble of antique shops and the bustling market, Kandy is sure to amaze.

Overnight stay at Serene Kandy or Similar.

Day 2: Kandy - Matale - Minneriya - Sigiriya (Breakfast and Dinner Included)
After breakfast, proceed to Sigiriya via Matale. The spice gardens in Matale offer wonderful opportunities to view the spices that stirred the interests of many nations across the world in the past. Spend time in Sigiriya, and in the afternoon, leave for Minneriya National Park. Minneriya National Park shelters some of the greatest wildlife treasures in Sri Lanka. The ‘Sixth Greatest Wildlife Spectacle of the World’ – the amazing phenomenon of the ‘Minneriya Elephant gathering’ occurs between August and September.

Overnight stay at Kasyapa Lion Rock or Similar.
Day 3: Sigiriya - Matale - Colombo (Breakfast Included)
In the early morning, leave to climb the Sigiriya Rock Fortress and return to the hotel for breakfast. The Sigiriya Rock Fortress is the 8th wonder of the world, and is a rare jewel among the many treasures in Sri Lanka. The famous Sigiriya frescoes are a highlight of the fortress. The Aluvihara temple in Matale is a site of great significance to Buddhists, and is located amongst a cluster of rocks where the Buddhists’ holy book Tripitaka was documented on to palm leaves.

End of Services.

4-Night Tour

Day 1: Arrival in Colombo - Kandy (Dinner Included)
Upon arrival in Colombo, you will be met by your driver and transferred to Kandy. Upon arrival in Kandy, you'll check in to your hotel and enjoy an evening city tour. Kandy is the Hill Capital and last stronghold of the Sinhala Kings, and is the venue of the annual Esala Perahera, one of the most colourful pageants in all of Asia, held in honour of the Buddha’s relic. Embark on a personalised city tour of the UNESCO World Heritage city, visit the art and craft villages, the local markets, and the temple of the tooth.

Overnight stay at Serene Kandy or Similar.

Day 2: Kandy - Nuwara Eliya (Breakfast and Dinner Included)
After breakfast, proceed to Nuwara Eliya and check in to your hotel. Nuwara Eliya, dubbed the ‘Little England of Sri Lanka’, is located in the thick, misty hills of this paradise isle. The colonial atmosphere remains and helps Nuwara resemble a British countryside village complete with rose gardens, hedges and red-roofed bungalows.

Overnight stay at Hilldale Retreat or Similar.
Day 3: Nuwara Eliya - Udawalawe (Breakfast and Dinner Included)
After breakfast, check out of your hotel and drive to Udawalawe to check in to a hotel and enjoy an evening safari in the Udawalawe National Park.

Overnight stay at Centuria Lake or Similar.
Day 4: Udawalawe - Koggala (Breakfast and Dinner Included)
After breakfast, head to Koggala, check-in to your hotel, and relax on the beach.
