Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

Day 1 UK/Colombo

​You'll depart on your scheduled flight to Colombo today.​

Day 2 Colombo

​On arrival in Colombo we'll transfer you to your hotel, where you'll stay overnight. After your flight, a relaxed afternoon is the perfect way to start your holiday. Why not pick a spot by the hotel's swimming pool and soak up some sun.​​

Day 3 Minneriya

​Now you're re-energised and ready to go, your tour starts in earnest with a drive to Sigiriya, in the heart of Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle. A two-night stay here means there's time to visit Minneriya National Park today, where elephants, deer and wild boar roam and you'll see a variety of bird species. ​

Day 4 Sigiriya

You've the chance to experience local life today in a nearby village, where a walk and a catamaran ride are all included! We reach the UNESCO-listed site of Sigiriya later. This spectacular rock fortress is one of the country's main attractions, featuring water gardens, moats and the impressive Lion Gate.​

Day 5 Kandy

​Kandy is a beautiful town, and it's your next base. On the way here we're going to stop at the Dambulla cave temples, home to more than 150 Buddha images. Further on, we'll visit a spice garden in Matale. Here you'll learn how these aromatic ingredients are used in traditional Sri Lankan cuisine, and pick up some tips to take home. ​

Day 6 Kandy

Today's included tour takes you to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Peradeniya, which were laid out by British colonial rulers in 1821 and are home to more than 5,000 species of plants and trees. You'll then tour Kandy, where highlights include the temple housing the famous Tooth Relic of Buddha and Market Square.

Day 7 Nuwara Eliya

​We're setting our sights on Nuwara Eliya after breakfast today, in the heart of Sri Lanka's hill country. Home to the famous Ceylon tea, it is surrounded by a lush green carpet of plantations, and en route to our hotel we'll visit one. Here we'll see how the leaves are delicately picked by hand and eventually turn into our favourite brew. 
On arrival in Nuwara Eliya, settle into your hotel, then get your bearings on a sightseeing tour.​

Day 8 Nuwara Eliya

​It might be tempting to spend today lazing by the pool and soaking up the sunshine. Alternatively, if you want to discover more of Sri Lanka, come with us on an optional trip to Horton Plains National Park. At World's End you can peer over a 3,700ft sheer drop to take in fabulous views of the surrounding tea estates. There's wonderful flora and fauna to discover here too. Keep a lookout for some of the 24 species of mammal, which include the endemic slender loris, purple monkey and sambar deer. ​

Day 9 Yala

​You've a great journey ahead today on a drive to Yala, where the landscape ranges from open parkland to dense jungle. Before we arrive we're going to stop at a school in Nuwara Eliya, which is supported by the Travelsphere Cares project.
As you reach Yala, look out for watering holes, small lakes and lagoons. These attract the many animals that thrive here, including a sizeable elephant population, which we hope to spot tomorrow. End the day with a spot of relaxation at your hotel.​

Day 10 Yala

This morning join our exciting safari in Yala National Park, where elephant and leopard may be spotted as well as many other species such as sloth bears, monkeys and crocodiles. This afternoon join our included guided nature walk.​

Day 11 Beruwela

Your final destination is Beruwala, home to one of the longest beaches in Sri Lanka. You will stay here for two nights and en route you'll visit Galle, the port where the Portuguese first landed in Sri Lanka. Captured later by the Dutch you'll see plenty of reminders of Dutch colonial rule among its narrow alleys, churches and monuments. You'll then visit a turtle hatchery where these endangered creatures are protected and released into the wild. Enjoy the rest of the day relaxing on the beach.​

Day 12 Beruwela

​You could start the day with an optional morning yoga session with an expert teacher, after which you can spend the whole day at leisure. Beruwela is a busy little town which has managed to retain its charm, so maybe explore at your own pace or stay put and enjoy the facilities of your beachfront hotel.
This evening you could choose to join an optional dinner which introduces you to Arrack - a Sri Lankan spirit distilled from the sap of the coconut flower. This can only be collected by hand and is aged in oak casks. Your multi-course meal, which was developed by chef Adam Gaunt from the Flying Fish in Sydney, Australia, will be accompanied by several types of Arrack.

Day 13 Beruwela/UK

​Today we will transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK. ​

Sri Lanka's best flavoured 'high grown' teas are from estates in the surrounding areas.

Two highlights are the spectacular view from 'Worlds End' where the plateau plunges almost 1000m in a sheer drop & the beautiful 'Bridal Veil' Bakers Falls. Distinctive flora, butterflies & other creatures can be recorded.

'The perfect location for walking & hiking ' with a cool climate in the early mornings.

Please note: This walk can take between 3-5 hrs depending on walking ability. Walking shoes or Sturdy trainers are required plus a light rain jacket for the early morning.

Half Day – Strenuous walking over some uneven terrain – Not to be missed

Your Guru today will help and guide you through this authentic practice.

Two-hour experience – Moderate activity – Enlightening

ADD TO TOUR AT CHECKOUT

Sri Lanka - Ceylon Arrack Dinner

FROM £110

This evening you will experience a true taste sensation; learning about and sampling the famous Ceylon drink; Arrack, along with a complementary multi course meal.

Ceylon Arrack is a spirit distilled from the sap of the coconut flower, the sap is the juice that would have turned the coconut flower into a coconut. Sap collection is a timeless art handed down from one generation to another. The Ceylon 'toddy tappers' can be seen early morning at the top of the tall coconut trees 'tight-rope walking' effortlessly from tree to tree, where coconut trees grow in abundance. The sap has its own natural yeast and starts fermenting naturally once collected and must be distilled within 24 hours of being collected. Arrack is therefore one of the few/rare spirits in the world which is a distillate of a 100% natural fermentation.

Before the dinner you will be taken through the history of arrack and the brand, concluding in a tasting of the different types of arrack. To follow, a specifically designed multi-course dinner by Chef Adam Gaunt from the Flying Fish in Sydney. Which is sure to excite your palette and tingle your taste buds!

Evening excursion – Minimal walking – A taste sensation!

We asked some of our Tour Managers to sum up what they really love about this tour. Here's what they said:

FAVOURITE MOMENTS

From leaf to cup, discover the secrets of the perfect brew amidst the lush, green surroundings of a tea plantation.


Travelsphere Cares: Help a School in Need Project

Travelsphere CaresEducation plays a major part in Sri Lankan culture, dating back to 543 BC. Education is free and the majority of schools are maintained by the government.

However, the vast majority of provincial schools suffer from poor facilities and constant lack of teaching staff. It is especially visible in comparison with a few of the national, elite schools, which are directly funded by the ministry.

Nuwara Eliya is not only one of the popular tourist spots in Sri Lanka but it is also considered to be the most important location for tea production on the island but is also one of the poorest towns in Sri Lanka. As part of the Colonial Highlights of Ceylon tour we will visit an under-privileged school in Nuwara Eliya, where thanks to your help, we are able to donate vital school supplies, such as school books, school bags and stationery. This school is supported by the Child Development Daycare Centre and takes care of the children while their parents are working, mainly in the tea industry or garment factories. During your visit to the school, the children will entertain you with nursery rhymes and dancing.
