Highlights

 

Get a taste for the bounty that Sri Lanka offers travellers on a 14 day Taste of Sri Lanka tour. As well as including all touring throughout Sri Lanka, this experience sees you staying in minimum of 4-star hotels. Plus making this trip even more unforgettable is an end-of-tour beach break at an award-winning resort in the Maldives.

First up is the small group tour of some of Sri Lanka’s most spectacular destinations. Move from Negombo on the isle’s west coast into the heart of the Central Province. It is here where your itinerary sees you scale to the summit of the rock fortress (Sigiriya or Lion Rock), explore the underground network at Dambulla Cave Temple, gaze upon graceful elephant herds while on safari in Minneriya National Park, and cycle around the ruins of an ancient medieval capital. Continue to Kandy, one of Sri Lanka’s most perennially popular destinations, to see its divine temple, pretty lake and bustling local markets. Make the day trip into Hill Country to visit a tea plantation and Nuwara Eliya.

Take some time to unwind from a jam-packed sightseeing and touring itinerary throughout Sri Lanka with an end-of-trip beach break in the Maldives. Your destination is Adaaran Select Meedhupparu, an award-winning hotel that comes with all the bells and whistles necessary for an unforgettable escape. Your time here is based on an all-inclusive package so the trouble of having to decide where to go for lunch or dinner (or breakfast or afternoon sundowners) won’t even cross your mind. Instead, you’ll likely be preoccupied reading by the swimming pool, taking another panorama photo of the ocean views from your Beach Villa, or trying your hand at one of the water sport hire activities available through the resort.

 
 

Day 1: Australia – airplane-takeoff – Colombo – Negombo

Fly out of Australia today on a flight headed towards Colombo. A transfer will greet you upon landing at Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport and whisk you to neighbouring Negombo. 

Please note: some flights may leave the night before

For those purchasing the Tour Only option, your tour starts today. Please make your own way to the hotel.

Day 2: Negombo – Sigiriya (B,D)

Travel to Sigiriya today. Enroute there is a stop at the Golden Temple of Dambulla. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is made up of five caves spanning more than 2000-square metres and there are more than 150 depictions of Buddha to be found inside. Tonight, tuck into a welcome dinner with fellow travellers at the accommodation. 

Day 3: Sigiriya – Rock Fortress – Village Visit – Sigiriya  (B)

It is an early start for the group as you travel to Sigiriya’s most famous site: its namesake rock fortress (also known as Lion Rock). This ancient citadel is one of Sri Lanka’s most recognisable sites. The group returns to the hotel, to then head back out on bicycles or foot towards Augandawa Village. Here, you will see the temple and receive a blessing by the priest. There is also opportunity visit a local’s house. Return to the hotel by cycling or walking past paddy fields and Chena cultivations.

Day 4: Sigiriya  – Polonnaruwa – Minneriya National Park – Sigiriya (B)

Enjoy a guided cycling tour of Polonnaruwa, a former medieval capital of Sri Lanka, and see its palaces, ruins and structures. The afternoon takes the group to Minneriya National Park for an incredible safari experience. The park is most famous for being the location of the elephant gathering; a convergence of hundreds of elephants that congregate around the park’s main water source during the dry season (June to September). Relax with a 20-minute head and shoulder massage at the on-site Ayurveda spa upon return to the hotel.

Please note that depending on elephant migration patterns, the safari may occur at either Minneriya, Kaudualla or Eco Parks. 

Day 5: Sigiriya – Kandy (B)

Depart Sigiriya for Kandy this morning. Kandy is another of Sri Lanka’s former capitals and was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1998. It is well-known for its beautiful lake and the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic (the location of an artefact said to be one of the Buddha’s teeth). Upon arrival in Kandy there is a sightseeing tuk tuk tour that will help you get your bearings. After, make the most of free time in the city by choosing to walk the perimeter of the lake and wander between market stalls. Visit the temple in the evening. 

Day 6: Kandy – Nuwara Eliya, Hill Country and Tea Planation – Kandy (B)

Make the drive into Sri Lanka’s verdant tea country today. As you ascend into the hills you’ll immediately notice the dip in temperature (so be sure to pack appropriately for this excursion!). Explore Nuwara Eliya, a city referred to as a little slice of England, and pay a visit to Seetha Amman temple, Gregory Lake and local markets. It is then onto a tea plantation and factory for a tour and to gain insight into this acclaimed export. Tip: this is the best place to purchase Sri Lankan tea if you want some as a take-home souvenir. The group returns to Kandy in the evening. 

Day 7: Kandy – Negombo (B)

This morning is relaxed and there is some leisure time before beginning the drive to Negombo. The rest of the day is free time and can be spent by the pool, at the beach, or seeing Negombo’s sights. 

Day 8: Negombo – Colombo – airplane-takeoff– Male, Maldives (B)

A transfer takes you to Colombo in time to catch a flight to Male, the capital of the Maldives. A seaplane transfer whisks you from Male to the atoll location of Adaaran Select Meedhupparu.

You’ll check in to this award-winning resort and settle into your home for the next five nights: a spacious Beach Villa. These hideaways have stunning views of the ocean along with a private front deck, wooden flooring, ensuites and air conditioning. Your stay at the resort is made to feel even more indulgent thanks to the all-inclusive package that covers all breakfasts, lunches, dinners and drinks for your time here. 

Day 9: Maldives (B, L, D)

How to spend your first full day in the gorgeous Maldives? Make a beeline for the breakfast buffet (served in Sufura Restaurant) and then start taking advantage of the resort’s world-class facilities and amenities, be it table tennis and beach volleyball, or the swimming pool, sauna or water sport options. There are also seemingly endless stretches of private beach that invite leisurely strolls and time spent lazing in the sun. 

Day 10: Maldives (B, L, D)

The entire day is yours to jam-pack with activities or simply relax. 

Day 11: Maldives (B, L, D)

Another perfect day in the blissfully beautiful Maldives for you to do whatever you fancy with. 

Day 12: Maldives (B, L, D)

Day 13: Maldives – airplane-takeoff– Australia (B)

Take a seaplane transfer back to Male and then begin the return international flight journey back to Australia. 

For those purchasing the Tour Only option, at the appropriate time please make your own way from the hotel to your next travel arrangements.
