Day-to-Day Itinerary : Family Adventure Sri Lanka


Depart The UK  for Colombo, Sri Lanka

DAY 2 & 3 villa wild ceylon

You will be met at the airport and transferred to Villa Wild Ceylon, where you will be for a two night stay. Spend your time here relaxing after the flight and exploring the area, with historic Hindu villages, lush countryside, nature trails, bicycle hire and a great swimming pool all available. 

DAYs 4 & 5 The Mudhouse

Transfer to The Mudhouse, where you will stay for two nights on a half board basis. There are lots of fantastic local adventures you can take here including swimming in local lakes and exploring rock temples. Enjoy your unique accommodation and special hospitality in the most beautiful and wild of surroundings.


Your guide will take you to your next stop, the Palpatha Lodge located just on the edge of Wilpattu National Park. From the comfort the lodge you can make the most of this often overlooked portion of Sri Lanka - Wilpattu offers just as good sightings as the more famous Yala National Park but has far fewer visitors, allowing you to experience genuine wilderness. 


After an early morning safari at Wilpattu, explore Sri Lanka's Cultural Triangle from your base at the Back of Beyond Dehi Gaha Ela. This unique eco retreat is situated in dense forest with a variety of accommodation from tree-houses to rock cottages. The property is a great base from which to explore the man-made wonders of the Cultural Triangle. We include guided visits to Sigirya Rock Fortress, a bullock cart ride through the countryside, Polonnaruwa and Aukuna Standing Buddha. We also include an afternoon safari in Minneriya National Park where in the summer months it is possible to witness the incredible ‘Gathering of the Elephants'.


You’ll leave your car at the point at which the road ends and join a specialist local guide for a 4 hour trek to The Abode where you will stay for two nights and enjoy a wonderful adventure. The accommodation is extremely basic though the warmth and hospitality of the villagers is a joy. This experience will either be one of the best things you have ever done or it is not for you. There is very little middle ground as enjoyment requires full participation and enthusiasm. We have heard of the most jaded western teenagers having a fantastic time here!

DAYS 12 & 13 Kandy

Today you will head to the vibrant city of Kandy, perched in the hills around Kandy Lake and the lower hill country. In the early evening when you arrive, pay a visit to the Temple of the Tooth, said to house a tooth of the Buddha that is a sacred pilgrimage site for Buddhists. The next day you'll explore the whole city with your guide, visiting colonial gems such as the Royal Botanical Gardens and St James' Church before exploring the craft shops and markets around the local alleyways to see how the real Kandyites live.  

DAYS 14 & 15 kithugala

On to Kithugala, the venue for your white water rafting, canoeing and jungle trek. Borderlands, where you will stay for two nights on a bed and breakfast basis, is one of the quirkiest hotels in Sri Lanka, nestled on the banks of a river. The hotel is basic, the service is inconsistent but friendly and all in all this is a very unusual place to stay.


From Kithugala you will head to Galle where you will be staying at a beachside resort. Explore the town of Galle and the old Dutch fort or just spend four days soaking up the Sri Lankan sun!

day 17 galle coast

Spend a day at leisure on the beach, by the pool or exploring Galle Fort or the surrounding countryside.

day 18 - galle coast boating cycling and cooking

Explore the area with your guide today with a cruise down the lovely Kapu Ela river to see the bird life and monkeys. Take a leisurely bike ride around beautiful remote countryside to visit traditional Sri Lankan villages and visit a family home where a local lady will teach you how to make the traditional breakfast of egg hoppers. 

DAY 19 fly home

Transfer to Colombo airport for your return flight to the UK.

Customer Feedback
Staying in small places it was possible to really get the smells of the trees and flowers, assail the eye with colour and our ears with the morning bird calls.
