Highlights

 

Old capitals, preserved ruins and incredible natural wonders are part of your everyday experience on a 15 day Sri Lanka Discovery tour with 5-star beach break.

Journey out to Sigiriya from Colombo and immerse yourself in the area’s ancient history. Wander around the former medieval capital of Polonnaruwa, and then jump into a jeep for a private safari through Minneriya National Park and cross your fingers for a sighting of the spectacular elephant gathering. You also have a chance to climb the Sigiriya Rock Fortress and marvel at the stunning surrounding landscape. Turn your hands to Sri Lankan cuisine with a cooking class.

Continue to Kandy and see the Temple of the Tooth, then travel into Sri Lanka’s lush Hill Country to walk around tea plantation and learn about the history of one of Sri Lanka’s most acclaimed exports. Marvel at the beauty of this countryside aboard the train ride to Ella, and set out on another exclusive safari experience through Yala National Park. Those with keen eyes should keep a lookout for leopards! Move from the countryside to the coast and fall for the pretty charm of its historic fort, and then unwind at the end of the tour with a relaxing 5-star beach break.
