Designed with the first time visitor in mind, our 14-day Classic Sri Lanka tour explores the island’s highlights without rushing through.
The trip starts by heading from Negombo to Sigiriya, right in the heart of the ‘Cultural Triangle’. This area is famed for the ancient Buddhist civilisations that, over time, ruled Sri Lanka. Many of them, including Sigiriya, Dambulla and Polonnaruwa are now UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From there the trip continues south to hillier Kandy; surrounded by dense greenery, Kandy is home to The Temple of the Tooth and has become known for its exquisite gem stones. The journey continues south by train into the verdant tea-growing region for a couple of days, where the scenery is seriously stunning, before arriving in Udawalawe National Park. Quieter than its over-crowded neighbour Yala National Park, Udawalawe is known for its high density of wild elephants, and the wonderful Elephant Transit Home for orphaned elephants next door. The trip then heads to the beautiful colonial Galle, with its charming cobbled streets and artisan shops, before ending on the beach for some relaxation. This is a fantastic all-rounder trip!
