Day-to-Day Itinerary : Family Adventure Sri Lanka


Depart The UK  for Colombo, Sri Lanka

DAY 2 Horothapola coconut estate

You will be met at the airport and transferred to Horothapola Coconut Estate, where you will be for an overnight stay. Spend the rest of the day exploring the colonial estate and enjoying the luxury and glorious food.

DAYs 3 & 4 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 surroundings.


You will be met this morning by your qualified and friendly chauffeur-guide, he will act as your guide for the rest of the holiday and your vehicle will be a modern minvan.

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. Two half day safaris are included here.


Heading away from 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, 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!


On to Kithugalla, 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 Kitulgala head east across the mountains to Landa Holiday Houses in Belihul Oya. Landa Holiday Houses are a fantastic base for a wide range of nature and adventure related activities. Try many activities from trekking across the Horton Plains (the Horton Plains mountain range is visible from the River Garden restaurant itself) to canoeing in the 'Samanalawewa' reservoir. Cycling, caving, trekking and bird watching can all be organised here yet it is wonderfully laid back and scenic. We include a visit to Horton Plains.


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


Transfer to Colombo where you’ll spend your last night in Lake Lodge. Catch up on fine dining in some of the city's great restaurants, do some last minute shopping or let Mark Forbes guide you through the streets of Colombo on one of his excellent city tours.


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