Detailed Journey

Day 1

Colombo - Wadumunnegedara

Our representative will pick you up at the airport in Colombo and drive you straight to your accommodation in the countryside, the Horathapola Estate. It is a beautiful old colonial house located in the middle of a coconut plantation and surrounded by rice paddies.

Day 2

Wadumunnegedara - Pallepola

After a delicious breakfast, we’ll head to Jim’s Farm, a pristine countryside retreat. It’s the perfect place to ease into your trip, as its relaxing and welcoming. If you feel up to it, you can visit the surrounding villages.

Day 3

Pallepola

You’ll have the morning at your leisure, and then in the afternoon we’ll go on a jeep safari to one of the three national parks in the area. We’ll pick which one based on information on the day from the local rangers, maximizing your chances of encountering rare wildlife.

Day 4

Pallepola

Today we’ll begin with a visit to one of the most majestic sites of the entire trip, the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. On the way back we’ll stop at the Dambulla Cave Temples, which overlook a scenic vista of sprawling tea plantations and are famous for its ancient Buddhist statues.  

Day 5

Pallepola – Polonnaruwa - Passikudah

We’ll leave Jim’s Farm in the morning and go to Polonnaruwa, the second capital city in the history of Sri Lanka’s. The ancient city ruins show both Buddhist and Hindu influences, and tell the tale of the country in a fascinating manner.

Day 6

Passikudah

It’s easy to forget the time in Passikudah, a sea-side paradise, whose azure waters enthral visitors from all over the world. To do anything other than relax and enjoy the view would seem like almost a crime. You’ve got the entire day at your leisure.

Day 7

Passikudah

Another day relaxing on the serene sun kissed beaches of Passikudah. It wasn’t so long ago that the villages of these shores were demolished by the massive Tsunami in 2004, and also took heavy damage during the Sri Lankan Civil War. You might hardly notice it today though, as the area is completely peaceful now.

Day 8

Passikudah – Kandy

We’ll drive to Kandy today, an ancient city nestled amongst hills and home to some spectacular places, including the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens. We’ll also explore many of the city’s other beautiful monuments.

Day 9

Kandy

Today we’ll take a tour of the holy Temple of the Sacred Tooth, a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by stunning vistas of sprawling tea plantations. Afterwards we’ll enjoy a traditional dance performance.

Day 10

Kandy

Today you have the choice to do whatever you want in this amazing city. Many of our guests choose to visit the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage, where you’ll have the unique opportunity to play with and care for these gentle creatures.

Day 11

Kandy – Nuwara Eliya

We’ll travel by train today, on an incredibly scenic 4 hour journey to Nanuoya. From there we’ll drive to Nuwara Eliya. Upon arrival we’ll visit a tea factory and observe the process of turning the raw leaves into tea. And of course we’ll get to taste some of the local brews.

Day 12

Nuwara Eliya

We’ll spend another day in Nuwara Eliya, as its scenic beauty is worth more than a short visit. This laid back town is best explored on foot. The highlight of the area is a walking tour of the serene tea plantations. You’ll get a unique opportunity to enjoy nature’s bounties and soak in the fresh forest air.

Day 13

Nuwara Eliya – Colombo

Colombo is one of the most captivating capital cities in the world. Known for its gorgeous beaches and cosmopolitan center, the city derives much of its vibrancy from its ancient spice trade, which first brought in European colonial powers. You will spend the day exploring the city and visiting some of the famous colonial buildings. For lunch we’ll visit Kitugala, where the iconic film ‘The Bridge Over River Kwai’ was filmed.

Day 14

Colombo

The journey comes to an end. On your flight home, reminisce about the many magical moments you experienced over the last two weeks, and look forward to your next trip back to this incredible country.
