Explore Sri Lanka’s Highlights on This Adventure.
Journey through Sri Lanka, exploring the island nation’s main highlights and stay in some of the country’s finest hotels.
Explore the main cultural sites, drive through the beautiful countryside, visit the scenic tea country, and relax on stunning beaches around the east coast. You will stay at high-end hotels and lovely boutique properties on your way across this fascinating place.
After an early breakfast, you will drive to the cultural triangle via Kandy (approximately 3-3.5 hours). Kandy is famous for the sacred Temple of the Tooth, one of the most important Buddhist sites. As this is a religious site, we recommend light clothing with sleeves, and trousers and skirts below knee-length. Footwear should be removed before entering the temple. Later, transfer to Tirappane and check-in to your hotel.
Today you will climb the UNESCO-listed Sigiriya Rock Fortress. Explore historic ruins and an ancient citadel standing some 200 metres high (the 'Lion's Rock', which dominates the jungle from all sides). A series of galleries and staircases emerging from the mouth of a gigantic lion constructed of bricks and plaster provide access to the site.
Afternoon at leisure, or culture vultures may wish to visit the Avukana and Sasseruwa statues.
After breakfast enjoy a cycling tour in Anuradhapura. Cycle through the back roads with your hosted resident guide who will take you through the Inner City. This is a true off-the-beaten-track experience.
In the afternoon, an optional safari at Wilapattu National Park can be arranged.
Today after an early breakfast you will drive to the east coast via Polonnaruwa and Minnerya.
Walk around Polonnaruwa, and witness how this ancient capital city has been taken over by very friendly monkeys which was the setting for the Disney documentary Monkey Kingdom.
Enjoy a game drive in Minneriya National Park, and witness the gathering of hundreds of elephants at the reservoir every year from June to August.
East coast beaches are considered some of the best beaches in Sri Lanka, and are best visited during the summer months of June, July and August.
There are lots of activities to choose from on this coast, from surfing and fishing to simply wandering along the golden sands.
After breakfast take the Cinnamon Air flight from Batticaloa to Colombo. Arrive and check-in at the charming Maniumpathy, located in the heart of the city.
Enjoy an evening walking tour of Colombo with Mark Forbes and his team.
