Info : Essential Sri Lanka - Deluxe
This is a relaxed round tour taking in the best of Sri Lanka, staying in quality, intimate and characterful hotels.
The tour begins at a working coconut estate just north of Colombo and takes you to the Cultural Triangle, towards Kandy and the Hill Country, visiting cultural monuments, botanical gardens and tea plantations along the way. After all of that history and culture, you will head down to the south coast for a well earned rest by the beach, but not before enjoying an exciting wildlife safari.

- Wildlife spotting in Uda Walawe National Park - elephants, sambar, maybe even leopards.
- A train journey from Nany Oya to Haputale - one of the most beautiful train rides in the world.
- Relax or explore Galle and the surrounding countryside from your beachfront base in Mirissa.
