A 21 Day Tour

This epic three week tour of Sri Lanka allows you plenty of days in which to fully immerse yourself in the island’s most culturally important and scenically stunning destinations. Take in all the iconic sites like Sigiriya and the Temple of the Tooth in a well-paced itinerary that allows for as much activity as it does rest and relaxation. Your journey takes off in the lush forests of Wilpattu before heading into the dry plains of the cultural triangle, with its ancient Buddhist capitals and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From here it’s eastward to the take in the brilliant shades of azure seas only to be found on the island’s east coast. Contrast this with the emerald-green tea fields up in the cooler climes of the island’s hill country with its breathtaking scenery of misty mountains and waterfalls. Down on the island’s south enjoy close encounters with Sri Lanka’s wildlife at Yala National Park, where leopards, elephants and sloth bear roam, treat yourself to perfectly lazy days on the south coast and a visit to UNESCO World Heritage site Galle Fort, before ending your stay in Colombo, the island’s sleepy yet increasingly cosmopolitan city.
