Itinerary
Upon arrival in Colombo, you'll be met by your guide and transferred to Sigiriya. You'll have the evening to yourself to relax before setting off in the morning to Pidurangala Rock. It has incredible views of the famous Lion Rock just opposite. You can enjoy the views from the base, or hike up to the top if you're feeling up to it. In the afternoon, you'll visit the beautiful village of Hiriwadunna, where you'll go on a bullock cart ride through rice paddies down to the pictureqsue Hiriwadunna Lake. Once at the lake, you'll go on a peaceful catamaran cruise, taking in the surrounding forests and bird life.

The next stop on the tour will be Kandy—on the way from Sigiriya, you'll stop at the Dambulla Cave Temple, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Matale spice garden, home to some of Sri Lanka's famous cinnamon. In Kandy, you'll visit the sacred Temple of the Tooth, which is said to hold a piece of the Buddha's tooth.

On your second day in Kandy, you'll visit the Royal Botanical Gardens, home to over 4,000 species of plants, followed by a sightseeing tour of Kandy. After the tour, you'll get to watch a traditional music and dance show, which dates back centuries. The next morning, you'll ride a heritage blue train past tea plantations, picturesque villages, and rushing waterfalls to Nuwara Eliya.

Upon arrival in Nuwara Eliya, you'll go on a tour of the area, including one of the oldest golf clubs in Asia, the picturesque Victoria Park, Lake Gregory, Sita Amman Temple, and Hakgala Botanical Gardens. On your way back to the hotel, you'll stop off at a strawberry farm, where you can indulge in some sweet treats, followed by a trip to the local bazaar in the evening. 

The next morning, you'll set off for Yala National Park, and have some free time to relax. The next day, you'll go on a safari drive around the park, taking in all the wildlife. Spot leopards, elephants, crocodiles, buffalo, peacocks, monkeys, and a variety of birds. Finally, you'll head to Sri Lanka's southern coast for two nights by the beach before your flight home.
