Adventure:Sri Lanka

Boutique Sri Lanka

Experience the diversity of Sri Lanka's natural beauty, history, culture and wildlife on this exclusive 12 day itinerary. Staying in boutique accommodation throughout, enjoy the best of both worlds with your own private vehicle and guide, but plenty of time at leisure to explore independently (or just relax and soak up the beautiful surroundings!).

Begin by exploring Sri Lanka's 'cultural triangle' of Dambulla, Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa where you wander amongst well-preserved 12th century ruins, climb the Sigiriya Rock Fortress, and experience rural village life in the remote town of Hiruwadunna. You will also have the opportunity to see elephants in their natural environment on a safari in Minneriya National Park.

Next stop is Kandy, Sri Lanka's 'cultural capital'. Aside from visiting the most important sites such as Temple of the Tooth, you will also have time at leisure to enjoy the tranquil surroundings of your tea plantation estate accommodation, and learn more about the history and origins of your humble cup of tea!

From here we take a scenic rail journey to the town of Ella, and continue on to the stunning 98 Acres Resort & Spa. From here you may choose to hike to the top of Little Adam's Peak, take a pleasant walk to a waterfall, or relax and indulge in a spa treatment! There are also biking excursions available at an additional cost.

After being surrounded by seas of green for the last week, we then head to the coast where you can soak up the sea views, framed by palm trees, from your colonial villa accommodation.

Last stop on this journey is Galle, where we stay within the World Heritage listed Galle Fort.
